WGL Holdings, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

The following is an excerpt of a May 3, 2018, press release issued by WGL Holdings, Inc., disclosing the company's second quarter results. Please visit the WGL Holdings, Inc. website to view the full press release

WGL Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: WGL), the parent company of  Washington Gas Light Company ( Washington Gas) and other energy-related subsidiaries, today reported net income applicable to common stock determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in  the United States of America (GAAP) for the quarter ended  March 31, 2018, of  $135.6 million, or  $2.63 per share, an improvement of  $12.5 million, or  $0.24 per share, over net income applicable to common stock of  $123.1 million, or  $2.39 per share, reported for the quarter ended  March 31, 2017. For the six months ended  March 31, 2018, net income applicable to common stock was  $273.6 million, or  $5.31 per share, an improvement of  $92.6 million, or  $1.79 per share, over net income applicable to common stock of  $181.0 million, or  $3.52 per share for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

During the six months ended  March 31, 2018, we are reflecting a decrease in current year tax expense from the year-over-year reduction in the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Act") enacted in  December 2017. As a result,  Washington Gas began passing on to customers approximately  $39.5 million, on an annual basis, through reduced rates beginning in the second fiscal quarter. We have also remeasured our accumulated deferred income tax assets and liabilities, which resulted in recording a  $60.3 million income tax benefit (net) in GAAP net income. Non-GAAP operating earnings (described below) have been adjusted to eliminate the re-measurement impact on deferred income taxes of the legislation.

On a consolidated basis, WGL uses non-GAAP operating earnings (loss) to evaluate overall financial performance, and evaluates segment financial performance based on earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) and adjusted EBIT. Operating earnings (loss) and adjusted EBIT are non-GAAP financial measures, which are not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance. Both non-GAAP operating earnings (loss) and adjusted EBIT adjust for the accounting recognition of certain transactions that we believe are not representative of the ongoing earnings of the company. Additionally, we believe that adjusted EBIT enhances the ability to evaluate segment performance because it excludes interest and income tax expense, which are affected by corporate-wide strategies such as capital financing and tax sharing allocations. Refer to "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," attached to this news release, for a more detailed discussion of management's use of these measures and for reconciliations to GAAP financial measures.

For the quarter ended  March 31, 2018, operating earnings were  $109.5 million, or  $2.12 per share, an improvement of  $13.4 million, or  $0.25 per share, over operating earnings of  $96.1 million, or  $1.87 per share, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. For the six months ended  March 31, 2018, operating earnings were  $204.4 million, or  $3.96 per share, an improvement of  $49.0 million, or  $0.94 per share, over operating earnings of  $155.4 million, or  $3.02 per share, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.
