Body

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra (NYSE: SRE) (BMV: SRE) today announced second-quarter 2022 earnings of $559 million, or $1.77 per diluted share, compared to second-quarter 2021 earnings of $424 million, or $1.37 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis, the company's second-quarter 2022 earnings were $626 million or $1.98 per diluted share, compared to $504 million, or $1.63 per diluted share, in 2021.

"At Sempra, we want to help ensure energy is increasingly abundant, cleaner and more affordable. We're executing against a plan that extends our capabilities to better serve the growing needs of customers here in North America and overseas," said Jeffrey W.

Sempra Reports Second-Quarter 2022 Earnings Results

Sempra's earnings for the first six months of 2022 were $1.171 billion, or $3.70 per diluted share, compared with earnings of $1.298 billion, or $4.24 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2021.

Sempra California

Sempra California is continuing to operate and construct critical new infrastructure that promotes safety and reliability, while also integrating cleaner forms of energy.

In May, San Diego Gas & Electric Co. (SDG&E) and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) each filed their 2024-2027 General Rate Cases (GRC) with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Based on a sustainability policy framework, the GRC filings propose critical infrastructure investments focused on safety, reliability and helping advance a cleaner energy future.

In June, SDG&E announced it had received approval from the CPUC to build four microgrid facilities equipped with energy storage to help dispatch cleaner energy to the grid during peak demand. The projects are aimed at furthering climate resiliency with the ability to operate independently from or in parallel with the larger regional grid to help improve power continuity during grid outages and capacity shortfalls.

Also in June, SoCalGas submitted its annual fugitive emissions report to the CPUC, reporting a significant achievement in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. From 2015 through 2021, SoCalGas reduced fugitive methane emissions by approximately 37%, significantly surpassing California's goal of a 20% reduction by 2025 and nearing the state's goal of a 40% reduction by 2030. The company's success comes from innovation in new detection technologies, including aerial methane mapping and drones to map and detect methane.

Sempra Texas

In Texas, high demand driven by premise growth, new high-voltage interconnections, and one of the fastest growing economies in the nation necessitates a reliable and resilient grid. Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (Oncor) is supporting the state's notable demographic growth by executing on its record capital plan, which is focused on critical new transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure.

During the second quarter, Oncor received 90 new transmission interconnection requests, representing a 73% increase in new requests versus the second quarter last year, and placed approximately $239 million of transmission projects into service. The company has completed approximately 880 miles of T&D projects year-to-date with 480 miles of T&D projects completed in the second quarter.

Additionally, the company connected approximately 35,000 premises in the first six months of 2022. Notably, in June, Oncor received interconnection requests for 110 new housing subdivisions, the most ever received in any one month.

In May, Oncor filed its base rate review with the Public Utility Commission of Texas. The company expects any adjustments to rates to be effective by the end of the first quarter of 2023.

Sempra Infrastructure 

The strength and diversity of Sempra Infrastructure's growth platform helped drive significant commercial momentum in the second quarter, attracting world-class investment and commercial partners for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) and net-zero projects.

"There is an intersection of opportunity right now," said Justin Bird, CEO of Sempra Infrastructure. "It is expected that the United States will more than double its LNG export capacity by the end of the decade, while advancing the dual objectives of global energy security and decarbonization."

In June, Sempra completed the sale of a 10% non-controlling interest in Sempra Infrastructure Partners for approximately $1.7 billion in cash to a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA). Sempra now owns a 70% controlling stake in Sempra Infrastructure Partners, and KKR and ADIA own a 20% and 10% non-controlling interest, respectively.

During the quarter, Sempra Infrastructure advanced its LNG development projects by signing a series of non-binding heads of agreements (HOAs) for approximately 12 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) with the Polish Oil & Gas Company (PGNiG), RWE Supply & Trading, a subsidiary of RWE, and INEOS Energy Trading Ltd., a subsidiary of INEOS, culminating with an HOA with ConocoPhillips that supports the development of Phase 1 of the Port Arthur LNG project.

Sempra Infrastructure is also supporting the growing integration of North American energy markets through its cross-border infrastructure, as well as investments in clean energy development. In May, Sempra Infrastructure signed a participation agreement with TotalEnergies, Mitsui & Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Corporation, to advance the Hackberry Carbon Sequestration project in Southwest Louisiana.

As part of its business portfolio, Sempra Infrastructure is working on initiatives focused on sustainability and the global energy transition to advance its goal to lower the greenhouse gas emission intensity at its LNG and other facilities. Additionally, the company is working to provide decarbonization solutions to its customers in North America and in global energy markets.

Earnings Guidance

Sempra is updating its full-year 2022 GAAP earnings per common share (EPS) guidance range to $6.90 to $7.50. As a result of the company's strong execution and financial results in the first half of the year, Sempra is guiding to the high end of its full-year 2022 adjusted EPS guidance range of $8.10 to $8.70. Sempra also is affirming its full-year 2023 EPS guidance range of $8.60 to $9.20.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures include Sempra's adjusted earnings, adjusted EPS, and adjusted EPS guidance range. See Table A for additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures.

changes in tax and trade policies, laws and regulations, including tariffs, revisions to international trade agreements and sanctions, such as those that have been imposed and that may be imposed in the future in connection with the war in Ukraine, which may increase our costs, reduce our competitiveness, impact our ability to do business with certain counterparties, or impair our ability to resolve trade disputes; and other uncertainties, some of which are difficult to predict and beyond our control.

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA ADJUSTED EARNINGS TO SEMPRA GAAP EARNINGS (Unaudited)

Sempra Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EPS exclude items (after the effects of income taxes and, if applicable, noncontrolling interests (NCI)) in 2022 and 2021 as follows:

  • $(72) million impact from foreign currency and inflation on our monetary positions in Mexico and associated undesignated derivatives
  • $(58) million net unrealized losses on commodity derivatives
  • $50 million equity earnings from investment in RBS Sempra Commodities LLP, which represents a reduction to an estimate of our obligations to settle pending value added tax (VAT) matters and related legal costs at our equity method investment at Parent and other

Six months ended June 30, 2022:

  • $(98) million from impacts associated with Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility litigation related to property developer claims, four out of five of which were settled in the first quarter of 2022, at SoCalGas

Sempra Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures (GAAP represents generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America). These non-GAAP financial measures exclude significant items that are generally not related to our ongoing business activities and/or are infrequent in nature. These non-GAAP financial measures also exclude the impact from foreign currency and inflation effects on our monetary positions in Mexico and associated undesignated derivatives and unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivatives, which we expect to occur in future periods, and which can vary significantly from one period to the next. Exclusion of these items is useful to management and investors because it provides a meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra's business operations to prior and future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures are supplementary information that should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles for historical periods these non-GAAP financial measures to Sempra GAAP Earnings and GAAP EPS, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

(1)

Except for adjustments that are solely income tax, income taxes on pretax amounts were primarily calculated based on applicable statutory tax rates. We did not record an income tax expense for the equity earnings from our investment in RBS Sempra Commodities LLP because, even though a portion of the liabilities may be deductible under United Kingdom tax law, it is not probable that the deduction will reduce United Kingdom taxes.

(2)

In the six months ended June 30, 2021, because the assumed conversion of the series B preferred stock is dilutive for Adjusted Earnings, 4,257 series B preferred stock shares are added back to the denominator used to calculate Adjusted EPS.

RECONCILIATION OF SEMPRA 2022 ADJUSTED EPS GUIDANCE RANGE TO SEMPRA 2022 GAAP EPS GUIDANCE RANGE (Unaudited)

Sempra 2022 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range of $8.10 to $8.70 excludes items (after the effects of income taxes and, if applicable, noncontrolling interests) as follows:

  • $(98) million from impacts associated with Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility litigation related to property developer claims, four out of five of which were settled in the first quarter of 2022, at SoCalGas
  • $(91) million impact from foreign currency and inflation on our monetary positions in Mexico and associated undesignated derivatives in the six months ended June 30, 2022
  • $(70) million net unrealized losses on commodity derivatives in the six months ended June 30, 2022
  • $(120) million deferred income tax expense associated with the change in our indefinite reinvestment assertion as a result of progress in obtaining regulatory approvals necessary to close the sale of NCI to ADIA

Sempra 2022 Adjusted EPS Guidance is a non-GAAP financial measure. This non-GAAP financial measure excludes significant items that are generally not related to our ongoing business activities and/or infrequent in nature. This non-GAAP financial measure also excludes the impact from foreign currency and inflation effects on our monetary positions in Mexico and associated undesignated derivatives and unrealized gains and losses on commodity derivatives, which we expect to occur in future periods, and which can vary significantly from one period to the next. Exclusion of these items is useful to management and investors because it provides a meaningful comparison of the performance of Sempra's business operations to prior and future periods. Sempra 2022 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range should not be considered an alternative to Sempra 2022 GAAP EPS Guidance Range. Non-GAAP financial measures are supplementary information that should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles Sempra 2022 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range to Sempra 2022 GAAP EPS Guidance Range, which we consider to be the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Management believes Income (Loss) Before Interest and Tax is a useful measurement of our segments' performance because it can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our operations exclusive of interest and income tax, neither of which is directly relevant to the efficiency of those operations.
