Avista Corp. Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter and Year-to-Date 2012

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) - Avista Corp. (NYSE: AVA) today reported net income attributable to Avista Corp. of $18.2 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $23.0 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net income attributable to Avista Corp. was $56.6 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, compared to $64.9 million, or $1.12 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

"Avista's earnings for the second quarter and first half of 2012 were below our expectations largely because retail loads were lower than we anticipated. The continued weak economy and operational challenges at certain industrial customers resulted in lower retail sales volumes. Based on results for the first half of the year and a reduction in our forecasted loads for the remainder of 2012, we expect our consolidated and utility earnings to be at the lower end of our guidance range for the year," said Avista Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Scott L. Morris.

"Our retail loads and utility earnings decreased as compared to the second quarter and first half of last year, primarily due to warmer weather in 2012. The continued weak economy and lower energy usage at certain industrial customers also contributed to the decrease. However, the decline in retail loads was partially offset by general rate increases and a decrease in operating costs.

"This spring we had above average precipitation and streamflows, which resulted in strong hydroelectric generation in the second quarter and first half of 2012. In addition, purchased power and natural gas fuel prices are below the level included in base rates, which ultimately benefits both customers and shareholders.

"Results from Ecova, our primary unregulated subsidiary, improved in the second quarter of 2012 as compared to the first quarter of 2012. The costs of completing recent acquisitions and the accelerated pace of integrating the companies in the first quarter resulted in a decrease in earnings for the first half of 2012 as compared to 2011. Ecova's revenues continue to grow as it expands its customer base, and we expect the business to have strong results in the second half of the year," Morris said.

Summary Results: Avista Corp.'s results for the second quarter of 2012 and the six months ended (YTD) June 30, 2012, as compared to the respective periods of 2011 are presented in the table below:

The decrease in quarterly and year-to-date utility net income was primarily due to a decrease in gross margin (operating revenues less resource costs) and partially due to increases in depreciation, and amortization and interest expense. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to warmer weather that reduced retail loads and associated revenues, partially offset by general rate increases. Heating degree days at Spokane were close to historical average for 2012, but decreased 21 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2011 and 9 percent as compared to the first half of 2011. The decrease in electric retail loads and associated revenues was also due in part to the continued weak economy and lower usage at certain industrial customers. The decrease in other operating expenses was primarily due to decreased electric maintenance costs (which included the regulatory deferral of certain maintenance costs) and outside services, partially offset by increased pensions and other postretirement benefits expense.

The decrease in net income for Ecova for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, was primarily due to an increase in depreciation and amortization due to intangibles recorded in connection with the acquisitions of Prenova, Inc. (Prenova) and LPB Energy Management (LPB). On a year-to-date basis, the decline was also due in part to $1.5 million in costs of completing the acquisitions and integrating Prenova and LPB incurred during the first quarter of 2012. In addition, Ecova's total operating expenses increased and revenue growth, excluding the acquisitions, was lower than would be expected on an annualized basis.

The decline in results from the other businesses for both periods of 2012 as compared to 2011 was primarily due to increased litigation costs for the remaining contracts and previous operations of Avista Energy, as well as a net loss on investments.

Avista Utilities: On a quarterly basis, operating revenues decreased $26.7 million, and resource costs decreased $19.8 million, which resulted in a decrease of $6.9 million in gross margin. The gross margin on electric sales decreased $3.6 million, and the gross margin on natural gas sales decreased $3.3 million. The decrease in electric and natural gas gross margin was primarily due to warmer weather that reduced retail loads, partially offset by general rate increases. In addition to warmer weather, electric gross margin decreased due to the continued weak economy and lower usage at certain industrial customers. For the three months ended June 30, 2012, we recognized a benefit of $1.0 million under the Energy Recovery Mechanism (ERM) in Washington compared to an expense of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011.

For the second quarter of 2012 as compared to the second quarter of 2011, retail electric revenues decreased $2.9 million due to a decrease in volumes sold, primarily caused by warmer weather, and partially offset by general rate increases. In addition to warmer weather, retail sales volumes declined due to the continued weak economy and lower usage at certain industrial customers. Sales of fuel decreased $10.6 million (reflecting sales of natural gas fuel not used in generation). These decreases in electric revenues were partially offset by an increase in wholesale electric revenues of $6.5 million (primarily due to an increase in wholesale volumes). Retail natural gas revenues decreased $11.2 million due to a decrease in volumes caused by warmer weather, and wholesale natural gas revenues decreased $20.5 million (due to a decrease in wholesale prices, partially offset by an increase is wholesale volumes).

On a year-to-date basis, operating revenues decreased $58.9 million, and resource costs decreased $56.9 million, which resulted in a decrease of $2.0 million in gross margin. The gross margin on electric sales decreased $0.4 million, and the gross margin on natural gas sales decreased $1.6 million. The decrease in electric and natural gas gross margin was primarily due to warmer weather that reduced retail loads, partially offset by general rate increases. In addition to warmer weather, electric gross margin decreased due to the continued weak economy and lower usage at certain industrial customers. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, we recognized a benefit of $5.1 million under the ERM in Washington compared to $4.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Electric revenues decreased $22.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2011. Retail electric revenues decreased by $6.3 million, sales of fuel decreased by $29.9 million, while wholesale electric revenues increased by $12.4 million, and other electric revenues increased by $1.5 million.

Retail electric revenues decreased due to a decrease in use per customer primarily as a result of warmer weather, and due in part to the continued weak economy and lower usage at certain industrial customers, partially offset by the impact of general rate increases.

Wholesale electric revenues increased due to an increase in volumes, partially offset by a decrease in wholesale prices. The increase in sales volumes was primarily due to increased wholesale power optimization and lower than expected retail sales.

When electric wholesale market prices are below the cost of operating our natural gas-fired thermal generating units, we sell the natural gas purchased for generation of electricity in the wholesale market rather than operate the generating units. The revenues from sales of fuel decreased due to a decrease in the volume of natural gas fuel sold as part of thermal generation resource optimization activities and higher usage of our thermal generation plants. This was due in part to decreased hydroelectric generation.

Natural gas revenues decreased $37.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2011, due to a decrease in both retail and wholesale natural gas revenues.

The $15.6 million decrease in retail natural gas revenues was primarily due to a decrease in volumes, and partially due to slightly lower retail rates. We delivered less retail natural gas in the first half of 2012 as compared to the first half of 2011 primarily due to warmer weather. Residential and commercial natural gas use per customer decreased 8 percent as compared to the first half of 2011.

Wholesale natural gas revenues decreased $21.2 million due to a decrease in prices, partially offset by an increase in volumes.

Ecova: Ecova continues to expand its business from a focus on expense management to delivery of comprehensive energy and sustainability management services. In November 2011, Ecova completed the acquisition of Prenova, an Atlanta-based energy management company, and in January 2012 the acquisition of LPB, a Dallas-based energy management company, was completed. These acquisitions increase Ecova's market share and allow Ecova to offer its clients a broader range of services leading to potential future earnings growth.

On a year-to-date basis, Ecova's revenues increased $18.1 million, as compared to 2011, and totaled $77.1 million. This increase was primarily due to the acquisitions of Prenova and LPB, which added $11.6 million to operating revenues for the first half of 2012.

Ecova's total operating expenses increased $25.0 million primarily due to increased costs necessary to support ongoing and future business growth, as well as to support the increased revenue volume obtained through the acquisitions. Included in total operating expenses was a $2.9 million increase in depreciation and amortization due to intangibles recorded in connection with the acquisitions.

In the first half of 2012, Ecova managed bills totaling $9.0 billion, a decrease of $0.5 billion as compared to the first half of 2011. This decrease was due to a decrease in the average value of each bill (due in part to a decline in natural gas prices), partially offset by an increase in accounts managed.

The previous owners of Cadence Network (a company acquired by Ecova in 2008) had a right to have their shares of Ecova common stock redeemed by Ecova during July 2011 or July 2012. These redemption rights were not exercised and expired effective July 31, 2012.

Other Businesses: The decline in results from the other businesses for both periods of 2012 as compared to 2011 was primarily due to increased litigation costs for the remaining contracts and previous operations of Avista Energy, as well as a net loss on investments.

METALfx had net income of $0.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

Losses on venture fund investments were $0.5 million for the first half of 2012 compared to losses of less than $0.1 million for the first half of 2011.

Liquidity and Capital Resources: As of June 30, 2012, we had $284 million of available liquidity under our $400 million committed line of credit, with $91 million of cash borrowings and $25 million in letters of credit outstanding.

In June 2012, we entered into a bond purchase agreement with certain institutional investors in the private placement market for the purpose of issuing $80 million of 4.23 percent First Mortgage Bonds due in 2047. The issuance of the bonds will occur at closing in November 2012. The total net proceeds from the sale of the new bonds will be used to repay a portion of the borrowings outstanding under our $400 million committed line of credit and for general corporate purposes.

In May 2012, we cash settled interest rate swap contracts (notional amount of $75 million) and paid a total of $18.5 million. The interest rate swap contracts were settled in connection with the pricing of $80 million of First Mortgage Bonds as described above. Upon settlement of the interest rate swaps, the regulatory asset or liability (included as part of long-term debt) is amortized as a component of interest expense over the life of the forecasted interest payments.

We expect to issue up to $45 million of common stock in 2012 (with the majority in the second half of the year) in order to maintain our capital structure at an appropriate level for our business.

We are making significant capital investments in generation, transmission and distribution systems to preserve and enhance service reliability for our customers and to replace aging infrastructure. Utility capital expenditures were $120 million for the first half of 2012 and are expected to be about $250 million for the full year 2012.

As of June 30, 2012, Ecova had a $60 million committed line of credit agreement with a financial institution, which was fully utilized. In July 2012, Ecova entered into a new five-year $125 million committed line of credit agreement with various financial institutions that replaced its $60 million committed line of credit agreement.

Earnings Guidance and Outlook

Avista Corp. expects 2012 consolidated earnings to be at the lower end of the guidance range of $1.65 to $1.85 per diluted share. This is due primarily to lower than expected retail loads during the first half of 2012 and a reduction in our forecasted loads for the remainder of the year.

We expect Avista Utilities to contribute at the lower end of the range of $1.51 to $1.66 per diluted share for 2012, which includes a benefit under the ERM within the 90 percent customer/10 percent company sharing band. It is important to note that the forecast of our position in the ERM can vary significantly due to a variety of factors including the level of hydroelectric generation and retail loads, as well as changes in purchased power and natural gas fuel prices. Our outlook for Avista Utilities assumes, among other variables, normal precipitation and temperatures for the remainder of 2012.

We continue to expect Ecova to contribute in the range of $0.16 to $0.19 per diluted share for 2012 and the other businesses to be between break-even and a loss of $0.02 per diluted share.
