First Quarter 2021 Results

For the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, SJI reported consolidated GAAP earnings of $128.8 million compared to $101.1 million in the prior year period.

SJI uses the non-GAAP measure of economic earnings when discussing results. We believe this presentation provides clarity into the continuing earnings of our business. A full explanation and reconciliation of economic earnings is provided under “Explanation and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” later in this report and in our 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2020. `

For the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, economic earnings were $128.9 million compared to $106.8 million in the prior year period.

UTILITY

Utility entities include South Jersey Gas (SJG) and Elizabethtown Gas (ETG). First quarter 2021 GAAP earnings were $121.6 million compared with $107.7 million in 2020. First quarter 2021 economic earnings were $121.6 million compared with $108.9 million in 2020.

South Jersey Gas

Performance. First quarter 2021 GAAP earnings were $83.6 million compared with $70.5 million in 2020. First quarter 2021 economic earnings were $83.6 million compared with $71.7 million in 2020. First quarter 2020 economic earnings reflected a one-time tax adjustment. Utility margin increased $16.7 million, reflecting rate relief effective October 1, 2020, customer growth and the roll-in of investments from infrastructure replacement programs. We define utility margin, a non-GAAP measure, as natural gas revenues plus depreciation and amortization expenses, less natural gas costs, regulatory rider expenses and related volumetric and revenue-based energy taxes. Total expenses increased $4.8 million, primarily reflecting higher interest and depreciation expenses.

Customer Growth. SJG added approximately 7,000 new customers over the last 12 months and now serves approximately 407,000 customers. SJG’s 1.8% customer growth rate compares favorably to the peer average and remains driven by gas conversions from alternate fuels such as oil and propane.

Infrastructure Modernization. Through infrastructure replacement programs, SJG enhances the safety and reliability of our system while earning our authorized utility return on approved investments in a timely manner.

  • SJG's Accelerated Infrastructure Replacement Program (AIRP) authorizes investment of $302.5 million from 2016-2021 for important infrastructure replacement upgrades. Our most recent annual investment of approximately $60 million from July 2019 to June 2020 was rolled into rates on October 1, 2020.

  • SJG's Storm Hardening and Reliability Program (SHARP) authorizes investment of $100 million from 2018-2021 for four projects to enhance the safety, redundancy and resiliency of the distribution system along our coastal communities. Our most recent annual investment of approximately $30 million from July 2019 to June 2020 was rolled into rates on October 1, 2020.

Energy Efficiency. In April, the NJBPU authorized an expansion of SJG's energy efficiency programs for three years, beginning in July 2021, with proposed investments totaling $133 million. Since 2009, SJG has invested more than $120 million in energy efficiency programs. This program represents a commitment to the State’s climate priorities, advancing New Jersey’s clean energy goals in a manner that will benefit customers, the environment and the State’s green economy. The program is expected to result in $177 million in customer bill savings, over 500,000 tons in avoided CO2 emissions, and the creation of more than 2,500 jobs over three years. In tandem with approval of an energy efficiency program, the NJBPU approved a conservation incentive program (CIP) for ETG that eliminates the link between usage and margin, putting ETG in a stronger position to help customers manage their energy bills.

Regulatory Initiatives. SJG has filings pending before the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) in support of infrastructure modernization and redundancy, described in greater detail below.

  • Infrastructure Modernization. In November 2020, SJG filed a request with the NJBPU for approval of an Infrastructure Investment Program (IIP) that would accelerate planned capital expenditures to enhance the delivery of safe, reliable, affordable natural gas, create jobs, and support the State’s environmental goals. Under the proposed five-year program, beginning in June 2021, SJG will invest approximately $742.5 million to replace 825 miles of aging steel mains and install excess flow valves on new service lines. These enhancements ensure the continued safety and reliability of SJG's system. A resolution of the filing is expected this summer.

  • Redundancy. SJG has submitted an engineering and route proposal to the NJBPU for approval to construct needed system upgrades in support of a planned 2.0+ Bcf liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility. Discussions with the NJBPU surrounding this important project continue to progress, with resolution expected before year end. We also continue to explore system alternatives that will allow for a secondary supply of gas needed to create reliability and resiliency for approximately 140,000 customers in Atlantic and Cape May counties.

Elizabethtown Gas

Performance. First quarter 2021 GAAP/economic earnings were $38.0 million compared with $36.8 million in 2020. Utility margin, as previously defined, increased $4.3 million primarily due to customer growth and colder weather. Total expenses increased $3.1 million, primarily reflecting higher operating and depreciation expenses.

Customer Growth. ETG added approximately 4,000 new customers over the last 12 months and now serves approximately 303,000 customers. ETG’s 1.4% customer growth rate has increased from its historic 0.9% rate, driven by increases in new construction and gas conversions from alternate fuels such as oil and propane.

Infrastructure Modernization. ETG's Infrastructure Investment Plan (IIP) authorizes investment of $300 million from 2019-2024 for important infrastructure upgrades including the replacement of up to 250 miles of cast iron and bare steel mains. Our investment of approximately $60 million from July 2019 to June 2020 was rolled into rates on October 1, 2020.

Energy Efficiency. In April, the NJBPU authorized expansion of ETG's energy efficiency programs for three years, beginning in July 2021, with proposed investments totaling $83 million. This program represents a commitment to the State’s climate priorities and advancing New Jersey’s clean energy goals in a manner that will benefit customers and the environment. The program is expected to result in more than $150 million in customer bill savings, over 400,000 tons in avoided CO2 emissions, and the creation of more than 1,800 jobs over three years.

NON-UTILITY

First quarter 2021 GAAP earnings were $16.2 million compared with $5.8 million in 2020. First quarter 2021 economic earnings were $16.1 million compared with $6.4 million in 2020.

Decarbonization first quarter 2021 GAAP and economic earnings were $0.5 million, reflecting SJI's minority interest in REV.

Midstream

Performance. Midstream includes SJI's 20% equity interest in the PennEast Pipeline. First quarter 2021 economic earnings were $1.0 million compared with $1.2 million in 2020, reflecting Allowance for Funds Used During Construction related to the project. At this time, PennEast anticipates placing the Phase One facilities in service in 2022 and anticipates placing the Phase Two facilities in service in 2024, though the anticipated timeline may shift depending on a number of factors.

OTHER

First quarter 2021 economic earnings were $(8.8) million compared with $(8.5) million in 2020, reflecting an increase in outstanding debt partially offset by debt repayments and refinancing.

Capital Expenditures and Cash Flow

For the three months ended March 31, 2021:

  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $198.5 million compared with $165.9 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting rate relief at SJG, improved wholesale marketing results and customer growth.

  • Net cash used in investing activities was $112.3 million compared with $10.1 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting $105.4 million in capital expenditures for utility infrastructure modernization and clean energy investments, and the sale of non-core assets in Q1 2020 for $104.2 million in total proceeds.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures of Economic Earnings and Economic Earnings per share when evaluating its results of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP measures, such as net income, operating income, earnings per share from continuing operations or any other GAAP measure of financial performance.

We define Economic Earnings as: Income from Continuing Operations, (i) less the change in unrealized gains and plus the change in unrealized losses on non-utility derivative transactions; (ii) less income and plus losses attributable to noncontrolling interest; and (iii) less the impact of transactions, contractual arrangements or other events where management believes period to period comparisons of SJI's operations could be difficult or potentially confusing. With respect to part (iii) of the definition of Economic Earnings, items excluded from Economic Earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, are described in (A)-(D) in the table below.

Economic Earnings is a significant financial measure used by our management to indicate the amount and timing of income from continuing operations that we expect to earn after taking into account the impact of derivative instruments on the related transactions, as well as the impact of contractual arrangements and other events that management believes make period to period comparisons of SJI's operations difficult or potentially confusing. Management uses Economic Earnings to manage its business and to determine such items as incentive/compensation arrangements and allocation of resources. Specifically regarding derivatives, we believe that this financial measure indicates to investors the profitability of the entire derivative-related transaction and not just the portion that is subject to mark-to-market valuation under GAAP. We believe that considering only the change in market value on the derivative side of the transaction can produce a false sense as to the ultimate profitability of the total transaction as no change in value is reflected for the non-derivative portion of the transaction.
