Duke Energy 3Q 05_CIN

  1. 1. N E W S R E L E A S E Cinergy Corp. 139 East Fourth Street P.O. Box 960 Cincinnati, OH 45201-0960 News contact: Steve Brash 513-287-2226 (w) 513-543-7489 (c) Angeline Protogere 317-838-1338 (w) 317-367-3306 (p) Investor contact: Brad Arnett 513-287-3024 Web site: www.cinergy.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – OCTOBER 27, 2005 CINERGY REPORTS STRONG EARNINGS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER RAISES 2005 EARNINGS GUIDANCE Webcast of Analyst Conference Call Scheduled Today for 9:00 a.m. EDT on Cinergy.com CINCINNATI – Cinergy Corp. (NYSE:CIN) today reported net income for the third quarter of 2005 of $132 million, or $0.66 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $93 million, or $0.50 per share on a diluted basis for the third quarter of 2004. Excluding the impacts of certain adjustments described below, adjusted earnings for the third quarter of 2005 were a record $0.97 per share, compared with $0.65 per share for the third quarter of 2004. “The $0.97 per share of adjusted earnings represents Cinergy’s best quarter ever, and we’re pleased that this success was driven by many strong performances across our company,” said James E. Rogers, chairman and chief executive officer. “While we benefited from very favorable weather, I’m also extremely proud of the way our employees have worked to drive costs out of our businesses, while at the same time operating and maintaining our entire system so that we met the challenges of a very hot summer.” Cooling degree days during the quarter were almost 30 percent above normal and about 68 percent above last year. In July, customers of the Cinergy operating companies set a new record peak demand for electricity of 12,001 megawatts (MW), breaking the old record of 11,305 MW set in August 2002 by more than 6 percent. “Our commercial businesses delivered a solid contribution this quarter by capitalizing on commodity market price movements,” said Rogers. “In particular, the recent steps we’ve taken to strengthen our commercial gas business placed them in a position to profitably participate in an extraordinary period of gas price volatility.” 1
  2. 2. Unaudited consolidated statements of income for the quarter and year-to-date ended September 30, 2005 and 2004, and unaudited consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 can be found in Schedules 1 and 2, respectively, of this release. Earnings Adjustments Cinergy uses adjusted earnings internally for analysis of performance and for reporting results to the Board of Directors to provide a more meaningful representation of Cinergy’s fundamental earnings power. The company also uses adjusted earnings when communicating its earnings outlook to analysts and investors. Reported earnings for the third quarter of 2005 were negatively impacted by ($0.27) per share resulting from the recognition of a net unrealized mark-to-market loss on gas, fuel and power contracts that hedge our gas storage and generation portfolios. These contracts, which are economic hedges, do not meet the accounting requirements to qualify for accrual accounting. Reported earnings for the quarter were also reduced by ($0.04) per share for severance payments and certain costs incurred in connection with the proposed merger with Duke Energy announced in May 2005. In 2004, reported earnings were impacted in the third quarter by losses from similar unrealized mark-to-market adjustments of ($0.07) per share and by charges of ($0.08) per share for implementation costs relating to the company’s “CIN-10” continuous improvement initiative and the write-down or disposal of certain investments. Reconciliations of the items above, which are included in reported earnings as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) but excluded from adjusted earnings, can be found in Schedules 3 and 4 of this release. Business Segment Results The Regulated Businesses segment reported adjusted earnings of $0.48 per share in the third quarter of 2005 compared with adjusted earnings of $0.32 per share in the same period of 2004. The increase in earnings was primarily due to increased sales to retail customers resulting from warmer than normal summer weather. 2
  3. 3. Third quarter adjusted earnings from the Commercial Businesses segment were $0.49 per share in 2005 compared with adjusted earnings of $0.34 per share from a year earlier. The increase in earnings was primarily due to weather and higher margins realized from portfolio optimization activities, gas marketing and trading activities and generation assets serving Ohio commercial and industrial customers. Adjusted earnings for the Power Technology and Infrastructure Services segment were flat, or $0.00 per share, for the third quarter of 2005, as compared to an adjusted ($0.01) per share loss from the prior year. Complete details of third quarter and year-to-date 2005 results compared to 2004 can be found in Schedules 5 through 8 of this release. Earnings Guidance After taking into consideration the strong results from the third quarter, the company is increasing its previously issued earnings guidance for 2005 to a range of $2.60 to $2.75 per share on an adjusted basis. GAAP earnings for 2005 are expected to be in the range of $2.15 to $2.30 per share. Other Activities Cinergy and Duke Energy continue to make progress in the regulatory approval process associated with their proposed merger announced in May 2005. The companies have received early termination from the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission of the waiting period imposed by the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976. Settlements with intervening parties have been reached in state regulatory proceedings in Kentucky and South Carolina, where the agreements are being reviewed by state regulators. Negotiations are proceeding in Indiana, Ohio and North Carolina. Cinergy and Duke expect to file an amended joint proxy statement/prospectus, which will include third quarter 2005 pro forma financial information for the companies, with the Securities and Exchange Commission in December and to hold their respective special meeting of shareholders in February 2006. 3
  4. 4. In the third quarter, Cinergy was named for the third straight year to the Dow Jones World Sustainability Indexes, an international benchmark for excellence in social, economic and environmental leadership. The company was one of only two U.S. utilities to be selected to the Indexes. The World Indexes cover the top ten percent of the 2,500 largest companies in the world, providing asset managers with objective benchmarks to manage sustainability portfolios. Cinergy is also the only U.S. utility to be named to the FTSE4Good Index Series, an investment tool launched in 2001 for those interested in socially responsible investment. FTSE Group, jointly owned by the Financial Times and the London Stock Exchange, is an independent company whose sole business is the creation and management of indices and associated data services. In August, PSI Energy completed the acquisition of the 512-megawatt Wheatland generating facility for approximately $100 million from subsidiaries of Allegheny Energy, Inc. Located in Knox County, Ind., Wheatland has four natural gas-fired simple cycle combustion turbines and is directly connected to the Cinergy transmission system. Its output will be used to bolster the reserve margins on the PSI system. The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission has authorized PSI to defer post-in-service carrying costs and depreciation related to the facility. Cinergy Corp. has a balanced, integrated portfolio consisting of two core businesses: regulated operations and commercial businesses. Cinergy’s regulated public utilities in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky serve 1.5 million electric customers and about 500,000 gas customers. In addition, its Indiana regulated company owns 7,000 megawatts of generation. Cinergy’s competitive commercial businesses have 6,300 megawatts of generating capacity with a profitable balance of stable existing customer portfolios, new customer origination, marketing and trading, and industrial-site cogeneration. Cinergy’s integrated businesses make it a Midwest leader in providing both low-cost generation and reliable electric and gas service.

The economic value of these portfolios is subject to market fluctuations and, as such, the hedging process involves both purchases and sales. Because these generation assets and gas storage contracts are accounted for under the accrual method of accounting, the Company believes that excluding the impact of mark-to-market changes from reported earnings better matches the contract with the settlement period of the position it is hedging. These amounts will be recognized through adjusted earnings when the contracts ultimately settle. The increase in the third quarter of 2005 is primarily due to significant increases in the market price of power. Approximately 30% of the mark- to-market value of these contracts is expected to settle in the fourth quarter of 2005 and an additional 60% is expected to settle in the first quarter of 2006.
