    • Quarter and year-to-date results reflect an estimated unfavorable impact of $0.07 per share and $0.04 per share, respectively, from cooler and wetter weather in 2021 compared to 2020; on a weather normalized basis, results increased 10% and 11% for the quarter and year-to-date periods, respectively

  • 2022 diluted EPS guidance range of $4.39 to $4.49 established, reflective of continued growth of the Regulated Businesses and announced sale of HOS
  • Long Term EPS compound annual growth rate (CAGR) established at a narrowed range of 7 to 9% for the 2022-2026 period
  • Increased regulated investment over the next 10 years by $6.0 billion to a range of $28-32 billion, reflective of redeployment of Homeowner Services sale proceeds

CAMDEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Water Works Company, Inc. (NYSE: AWK) today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, of $1.53 per share, compared to $1.46 per share in 2020. The Company today also established 2022 diluted earnings per share guidance, and announced its long-term EPS growth target, and capital investment plans.

“We continue to deliver solid results with third quarter 2021 earnings in line with our expectations. These results demonstrate that we continue to grow our business through the consistent execution of our strategies,” said Walter Lynch, president and CEO of American Water. “Building on our year-over-year success, we have further strengthened our regulated business and will now deliver even higher quality earnings,” added Lynch. “With our recently announced sale of our Homeowner Services business, we can accelerate on our commitment to build and maintain reliable and resilient water and wastewater infrastructure, continue to put our customers first, and deliver water and wastewater solutions where we create the most value for customers and communities.

“Additionally, 100% of our earnings going forward will come from our regulated and regulated-like businesses, providing long term, stable and steady growth.”

Sale of Homeowner Services Group

American Water announced on October 29, 2021, that it has agreed to sell its Homeowner Services Group to funds advised by Apax Partners LLP (“Apax”) in a deal valued at approximately $1.275 billion. Upon closing of the transaction, American Water will receive $480 million in cash and a $720 million secured Seller’s Note bearing a 7% annual interest rate with a five-year term. In addition, the transaction includes a delayed payment to American Water of $75 million if certain milestones are met by December 31, 2023. The structure of the transaction enables initial cash proceeds to be redeployed into the regulated water and wastewater business to fund near-term incremental capital investments, while interest on the Seller’s Note will provide a stream of earnings over the life of the note. Upon maturity, the proceeds from the repayment of the Seller’s Note are expected to be used to fund a continually growing capital investment in the regulated business. American Water will also enter into a revenue sharing agreement that provides for American Water to receive a percentage of revenue generated from previous on-bill billing arrangements with American Water customers. This agreement will also provide an ongoing income stream as Apax continues these relationships. American Water anticipates closing the transaction in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions, including the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.

Financial Targets Established for 2022-2026

  • 2022 earnings guidance range of $4.39 to $4.49 per share
  • Long-term EPS CAGR narrowed to a range of 7-9% for the 2022-2026 period
  • 2022-2026 investment plan of $13-$14 billion and expected $28-$32 billion for the 10-year period of 2022-2031
  • Rate base growth expectation of 8-9%, increased from 7-8%
  • Long-term dividend growth expectation affirmed at the high end of a 7-10% range
  • Long-term plan includes $1.275 billion in expected gross proceeds ($1.0 billion estimated after tax) from the Homeowner Services sale transaction fully redeployed into the regulated capital investment plan and $1.1 billion of public equity issuances to support growth
  • 2026 O&M efficiency target of 30.0%

Consolidated Results

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, earnings per share were $1.53, an increase of $0.07 compared to the same period in 2020. This increase was primarily driven by continued growth in the Regulated Businesses from infrastructure investment, acquisitions and organic growth, partially offset by an estimated $0.07 per share impact from weather that was cooler and wetter in the third quarter 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. On a weather normalized basis, third quarter diluted earnings for 2021 and 2020 were $1.54 and $1.40 per share, respectively, an increase of 10%.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, earnings per share were $3.40, an increase of $0.29 compared to the same period in 2020. This increase was primarily driven by a $0.34 increase in the Regulated Businesses as earnings growth from infrastructure investment, acquisitions and organic growth, was partially offset by an estimated $0.04 per share impact from cooler and wetter weather in 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. On a weather normalized basis, diluted earnings for 2021 and 2020 year-to-date were $3.38 and $3.05 per share, respectively, an increase of nearly 11%.

The consolidated results were also partially offset by lower results from the Homeowner Services Group due to an increase in claims expense in the first half of 2021.

For the first nine months of 2021, the Company made capital investments of approximately $1.3 billion, including $1.2 billion primarily for infrastructure improvements in the Regulated Businesses and $78 million for regulated acquisitions. The Company plans to invest approximately $1.9 billion across its footprint in 2021.

Regulated Businesses

In the third quarter of 2021, the Regulated Businesses’ net income was $273 million, compared to $261 million for the same period in 2020. Regulated revenue decreased approximately $1 million as increases from additional authorized revenues from infrastructure investments, acquisitions and organic growth were offset by lower demand due to weather compared to the prior year. Excluding revenue reductions for the amortization of excess accumulated deferred income tax (“EADIT”) of $24 million, which is offset with a like amount as lower tax expense, revenue increased $23 million. Results also reflect higher O&M expenses of $3 million to support growth in the Regulated Businesses and increased depreciation of $13 million, mainly related to infrastructure investment growth.

For the first nine months of 2021, the Regulated Businesses net income was $623 million, compared to $561 million for the same period in 2020. Regulated revenue increased approximately $88 million from additional authorized revenues from infrastructure investments, acquisitions and organic growth, partially offset by lower demand due to weather. Excluding agreed to revenue reductions for the amortization of EADIT of $68 million, which is offset with a like amount as lower tax expense, revenue increased $156 million. Results also reflect higher O&M expenses of $51 million to support growth in the Regulated Businesses and increased depreciation of $32 million, mainly related to infrastructure investment growth.

To date, the Company has been authorized additional annualized revenues, excluding agreed to reductions for EADIT, of approximately $120 million from general rate cases, with $100 million effective in 2021 and $20 million effective in 2022. In addition, approximately $53 million of additional annualized revenues from infrastructure surcharges have been authorized and are effective in 2021. The Company has general rate cases in progress in three jurisdictions and filed for infrastructure surcharges in two jurisdictions, reflecting a total annualized revenue request of approximately $77 million.

For the 12-month period ended September 30, 2021, the Company’s adjusted regulated O&M efficiency ratio (a non-GAAP financial measure) was 33.9%, a decrease from 34.2% for the 12-month period ended September 30, 2020. The improvement in this ratio reflects the continued focus on operating costs, as well as an increase in operating revenues for the Regulated Businesses after considering the adjustment for the amortization of the EADIT shown below.

Market-Based Businesses

In the third quarter of 2021, net income for the Market-Based Businesses was $23 million, unchanged from the same period in 2020.

For the first nine months of 2021, net income in the Market-Based Businesses was $59 million, compared to $68 million for the same period in 2020. The decrease was largely the result of increased claims costs in 2021 for the Homeowner Services business from extreme cold weather across the country during the first quarter of 2021, primarily in Texas and Illinois.

Dividends

On October 28, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.6025 per share, payable on December 1, 2021, to shareholders of record as of November 10, 2021.

2021 Earnings Guidance

The Company affirms its 2021 earnings per share guidance range of $4.18 to $4.28. This guidance range assumes normal weather for the remainder of the year and does not reflect any estimated impact from the sale of HOS, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company’s earnings forecasts are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, those described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below and under “Risk Factors” in its annual, quarterly and current reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes a presentation of adjusted regulated O&M efficiency ratio, a “non-GAAP financial measure” under SEC rules, which excludes from its calculation estimated purchased water revenues and purchased water expenses, reductions for the amortization of EADIT, and the allocable portion of non-O&M support services costs, mainly depreciation and general taxes. These items were excluded from the O&M efficiency ratio calculation as they do not reflect management’s ability to increase the efficiency of the Regulated Businesses. This item is derived from American Water’s consolidated financial information but is not presented in its financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure supplements and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP disclosures and should be considered as an addition to, and not a substitute for, any GAAP measure.

Management evaluates its operating performance using this ratio and believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to the Company’s investors because it directly measures improvement in the operating performance and efficiency of the Company’s Regulated Businesses. The Company’s adjusted regulated O&M efficiency ratio (i) is not an accounting measure that is based on GAAP; (ii) is not based on a standard, objective industry definition or method of calculation; (iii) may not be comparable to other companies’ operating measures; and (iv) should not be used in place of the GAAP information provided elsewhere in this press release.

Set forth in this release is a table that calculates the Company’s adjusted regulated O&M efficiency ratio and reconciles each of the components used to calculate this ratio to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Management is unable to present a reconciliation of adjustments to the components of the forward-looking regulated O&M efficiency ratio without unreasonable effort because management cannot reliably predict the nature, amount or probable significance of all of the adjustments for future periods; however, these adjustments may, individually or in the aggregate, cause the non-GAAP financial measure component of the forward-looking ratio to differ significantly from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Virtual Investor Day

American Water will host a virtual Investor Day on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The event will feature presentations by Walter Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer; Susan Hardwick, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; and Cheryl Norton, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. The company will review the results for the third quarter of 2021 and will discuss its vision and strategy for the future, updated long-term financial plan, and the recently announced agreement to sell its Homeowner Services Group. The company will also discuss an increased capital investment program to provide reliable and sustainable water and wastewater services and its ongoing effort to enhance customer experience.

Interested parties may access the video webcast through a link on the Company’s Investor Relations website at ir.amwater.com. Presentation slides that will be used in conjunction with the event will also be made available online on the Company’s Investor Relations. The Company recognizes its Investor Relations website as a key channel of distribution to reach public investors and as a means of disclosing material non-public information to comply with its obligations under SEC Regulation FD.

Following the event, an archive of the webcast will be available for one year on American Water’s investor relations website at ir.amwater.com/events.

The company’s earnings guidance, capital spending, dividend growth, rate base growth and O&M efficiency forecasts are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, those described under “Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements” below and under “Risk Factors” in its annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
