American Water Works Company, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Affirms Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

American Water Works Company, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported operating revenues of $698,078,000 compared to $679,003,000 for the same period a year ago. Operating income was $204,301,000 compared to $187,442,000 for the same period a year ago. Income before income taxes was $133,502,000 compared to $114,352,000 for the same period a year ago. Net income was $80,043,000 or $0.44 per diluted share compared to $68,123,000 or $0.39 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. The company made capital investments during the quarter of approximately $167.3 million to continue to provide reliable service to customers. Income from continuing operations was $80.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted common share, compared with income from continuing operations of $69.1 million, or $0.39 per diluted common share, in the first quarter of 2014. This is a 7.3% increase over the 2014 adjusted EPS of $0.41, excluding the $0.02 cost impact from the Freedom Industries chemical spill in the first quarter of 2014. The company reported first quarter 2015 results of $0.44 per share or $0.03 above 2014 adjusted EPS. The major drivers of this increase were, first, $0.02 from higher incremental regulated revenue from rate increases and infrastructure surcharges for a number of operating companies, partially offset by decreased demand from declining usage. The decrease in cash flow from operations during the quarter reflects changes in working capital. The company affirmed its 2015 earnings guidance from continuing operations to be in the range of $2.55 to $2.65 per diluted share. The company’s earnings forecasts are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, those described under Forward-Looking Statements below and under Risk Factors in its annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
