May 5, 2022

News provided by Share this article Achieves 2022 first-quarter ongoing earnings per share of $0.41 vs. $0.28 in 2021. Remains confident in the value of Narragansett Electric acquisition for shareowners and Rhode Island customers and prepared to close promptly with National Grid. ALLENTOWN, Pa., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL ) today announced first-quarter 2022 reported earnings (GAAP) of $273 million, or $0.37 per share, compared with a first-quarter 2021 reported net loss of $1.84 billion, or $2.39 per share. Adjusting for special items, first-quarter 2022 earnings from ongoing operations (non-GAAP) were $305 million, or $0.41 per share, compared with $219 million, or $0.28 per share, a year ago. Special items in the first quarter of 2022 primarily included integration expenses associated with the planned acquisition of The Narragansett Electric Company. Special items in 2021 included a non-cash net loss from discontinued operations associated with PPL's former U.K. utility business. "We continued to deliver solid financial and operational results in the first quarter as we remained focused on strategically repositioning PPL for long-term growth and success and on creating the utilities of the future – utilities that are customer-first, people-driven and technology-enabled to drive an affordable, reliable clean energy transition," said PPL President and Chief Executive Officer Vincent Sorgi. "Across PPL, we are investing in smart grid technology that strengthens reliability. We continue to expand our use of data analytics to prevent outages, drive efficiency and prioritize investments. And we are leading the way in incorporating technology that enables widespread connection of renewable energy while preserving power quality and reliability." In addition, Sorgi said PPL continues to work diligently through the state appeals process in Rhode Island after receiving all of the necessary regulatory approvals to acquire Narragansett Electric. The company remains confident in the value of the transaction for shareowners and Rhode Island customers and is prepared to close promptly with National Grid. PPL expects to provide a strategic update, including annualized dividend and earnings forecasts, as well as details on its plan to achieve long-term competitive earnings per share growth, at an investor day following the conclusion of the Rhode Island appeals process.

Management utilizes "Earnings from Ongoing Operations" as a non-GAAP financial measure that should not be considered as an alternative to reported earnings, or net income, an indicator of operating performance determined in accordance with GAAP. PPL believes that Earnings from Ongoing Operations is useful and meaningful to investors because it provides management's view of PPL's earnings performance as another criterion in making investment decisions. In addition, PPL's management uses Earnings from Ongoing Operations in measuring achievement of certain corporate performance goals, including targets for certain executive incentive compensation. Other companies may use different measures to present financial performance. Earnings from Ongoing Operations is adjusted for the impact of special items. Special items are presented in the financial tables on an after-tax basis with the related income taxes on special items separately disclosed. Income taxes on special items, when applicable, are calculated based on the statutory tax rate of the entity where the activity is recorded. Special items may include items such as: Gains and losses on sales of assets not in the ordinary course of business. Impairment charges. Acquisition and divestiture-related adjustments. Significant losses on early extinguishment of debt. Other charges or credits that are, in management's view, non-recurring or otherwise not reflective of the company's ongoing operations.
