CMS Energy Announces First Quarter Earnings Results of $0.85 Per Share Reported and $0.86 Per Share Adjusted

JACKSON, Mich., April 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CMS Energy announced today reported net income of $243 million or $0.85 per share, for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $213 million or $0.75 per share for the same quarter in 2019. The company's adjusted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2020 were $245 million or $0.86 per share. The primary drivers of CMS Energy's quarterly financial performance were timely recovery of customer investments and cost management, partially offset by mild winter weather.

"Consumers Energy is focused on the safety and health of our co-workers, customers, and the communities we serve during these unprecedented times," said Patti Poppe, President and CEO of CMS Energy and Consumers Energy. "We are especially mindful of our duty to deliver essential services to those on the front line of the pandemic and we are working hard to deliver safe and reliable energy to Michigan's homes and hospitals."

As the ultimate impacts of the pandemic on Michigan's economy and our business remain uncertain, at this time CMS Energy is not changing guidance for 2020 adjusted earnings of $2.64 - $2.68* per share, as announced on January 30 [th] (* See below for important information about non-GAAP measures) . CMS Energy will discuss the financial risks and sensitivities related to COVID-19 in more detail during its earnings webcast on April 27.          

CMS Energy /zigman2/quotes/209852159/composite CMS +1.17% is a Michigan-based company that has an electric and natural gas utility, Consumers Energy, as its primary business. It also owns and operates independent power generation businesses.

CMS Energy will hold a webcast to discuss its 2020 first quarter results and provide a business and financial outlook on April 27 at 9:00 a.m. (EDT). To participate in the webcast, go to CMS Energy's homepage ( cmsenergy.com ) and select "Investor Meeting."

Important information for investors about non-GAAP measures and other disclosures.

*This news release contains non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (non-GAAP) measures, such as adjusted earnings. Adjustments could include items such as discontinued operations, asset sales, impairments, restructuring costs, regulatory items from prior years, or other items detailed in the attached summary financial statements. Management views adjusted earnings as a key measure of the company's present operating financial performance and uses adjusted earnings for external communications with analysts and investors. Internally, the company uses adjusted earnings to measure and assess performance. Because the company is not able to estimate the impact of specific line items, which have the potential to significantly impact, favorably or unfavorably, the company's reported earnings in future periods, the company is not providing reported earnings guidance nor is it providing a reconciliation for the comparable future period earnings. The company's adjusted earnings should be considered supplemental information to assist in understanding our business results, rather than as a substitute for the reported earnings. All references to net income refer to net income available to common stockholders and references to earnings per share are on a diluted basis.

This news release contains "forward-looking statements." The forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause CMS Energy's and Consumers Energy's results to differ materially. All forward-looking statements should be considered in the context of the risk and other factors detailed from time to time in CMS Energy's and Consumers Energy's Securities and Exchange Commission filings. 

Investors and others should note that CMS Energy routinely posts important information on its website and considers the Investor Relations section, www.cmsenergy.com/investor-relations , a channel of distribution.
