Portland General Electric Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revised Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Portland General Electric Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenues, net of $473 million compared to $493 million a year ago. This decrease was primarily driven by $22 million decrease in retail revenues resulting from a $16 million decrease from lower energy deliveries due to significantly warmer weather, and a $6 million decrease from various supplemental tariff changes relating to the amortization of regulatory reliabilities. Income from operations was $85 million compared to $98 million a year ago. Income before income tax expense was $60 million compared to $78 million a year ago. Net income was $50 million or $0.62 per diluted share compared to $58 million or $0.73 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $134 million compared to $158 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $178 million compared to $185 million a year ago. The decrease in earnings was a result of significantly lower retail revenue due to lower energy deliveries. Decreased energy deliveries were driven by significantly warmer weather during the first quarter of 2015 compared to the first quarter of 2014. The company revised 2015 earnings guidance from the previously reported range of $2.20 to $2.35 per diluted share to $2.05 - $2.20 per diluted share. The decrease in net income quarter over quarter and revised guidance is due to significantly lower retail revenues from warmer weather, which impacted first quarter 2015 financial results by approximately $0.20 per diluted share. Depreciation and amortization expense between $300 and $310 million and capital expenditures of approximately $609 million.
