Canadian Utilities Limited Announces Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

Canadian Utilities Limited announced earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the first quarter 2015, the company's adjusted earnings of $130 million compared to $186 million in 2014. The main driver of this decrease was a one-time earnings adjustment for the years 2013 and 2014 resulting from regulatory decisions received by the Utilities from the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) in the first quarter of 2015. The earnings were also impacted by unfavourable market conditions in the Company's Energy businesses. In March 2015, the AUC released decisions on the Generic Cost of Capital and Performance Based Regulation Capital Tracker proceedings that covered the period from the beginning of 2013 to the end of 2015. These decisions reduced first quarter 2015 adjusted earnings in the Utilities by $46 million. Without the one-time earnings adjustments from these decisions related to the years 2013 and 2014, adjusted earnings in the Utilities in the first quarter of 2015 were $23 million higher than the same period last year. The primary reason for increased earnings was due to the ongoing investment in building Alberta's infrastructure. Lower earnings in the first quarter of 2015 in the Energy segment also impacted overall results, primarily due to a 52% decline in average Alberta Power Pool prices in the first quarter of 2015 over the same period in 2014, and lower commodity prices in the Energy Solutions business. Earnings attributable to equity owners were $174 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $221 million in 2014. Decreased earnings attributable to equity owners were primarily the result of lower adjusted earnings. Total capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2015 were $390 million.
