“I'm pleased with our strong earnings growth and operational performance for the quarter, including progress on our regulatory initiatives and long-term electric resource planning,” said Linn Evans, president and CEO of Black Hills Corp. “Financial results were driven primarily by new rates and rider recovery on investments to serve customers. We also made progress on our cost management and cash conservation efforts to mitigate the first quarter financial impacts from Winter Storm Uri.

“We are excited about our opportunities ahead. We expect to invest more than $3 billion for our customers through 2025. In addition, we are aggressively pursuing incremental growth opportunities and supporting the strong economic and population growth we continue to see in our service territories. Our electric integrated resource plan for South Dakota and Wyoming exemplifies our customer-focused approach in cost-effectively serving growing demand over the next two decades while maintaining strong system resiliency. We continue to develop our electric transmission strategy, plan for new renewable generation and battery storage, and execute our pipeline replacement program. Through these efforts, we expect to deliver long-term value for our shareholders and achieve our sustainability goals while ensuring reliability for customers,” concluded Evans.

SECOND QUARTER 2021 HIGHLIGHTS AND UPDATES

Electric Utilities

  • On July 28, Wyoming Electric set a new all-time peak load of 274 megawatts, surpassing the previous peak of 271 megawatts set in July 2020.

  • On July 27, South Dakota Electric set a new all-time peak load of 397 megawatts, surpassing the previous peak of 378 megawatts set in August 2020.

  • On June 30, South Dakota Electric and Wyoming Electric submitted an integrated resource plan to the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission and Wyoming Public Service Commission. The plan outlines a range of options for the two electric utilities over a 20-year planning horizon to meet long-term forecasted energy needs while strengthening reliability and resiliency of the grid. The analysis focused on the least-cost resource needs to best meet customers’ future peak energy needs while maintaining system flexibility and achieving the company’s generation emissions reduction goals. The plan’s preferred options for the near-term planning period through 2026 propose the addition of 100 megawatts of renewable generation, the conversion of Neil Simpson II to natural gas in 2025 and consideration of up to 20 megawatts of battery storage.

Gas Utilities

  • On July 6, Colorado Gas received approval from the Colorado Public Utilities Commission for a system safety and integrity rider to recover safety and integrity focused investments in its system for three years.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

As noted in this news release, in addition to presenting its earnings information in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the company has provided non-GAAP earnings data reflecting adjustments for special items as specified in the GAAP to non-GAAP adjustment reconciliation table below. Net income available for common stock, as adjusted, is defined as Net income, adjusted for expenses and gains that the company believes do not reflect the company’s core operating performance. The company believes that non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because the items excluded are not indicative of the company’s continuing operating results. The company’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as an indicator for planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will not be affected by unusual, non-routine, or non-recurring items.

Gross margin (revenue less cost of sales) is considered a non-GAAP financial measure due to the exclusion of depreciation and amortization from the measure. The presentation of gross margin is intended to supplement investors’ understanding of operating performance. Gross margin for our Electric Utilities is calculated as operating revenue less cost of fuel and purchased power. Gross margin for our Gas Utilities is calculated as operating revenue less cost of gas sold. Our gross margin is impacted by the fluctuations in power purchases and natural gas and other fuel supply costs. However, while these fluctuating costs impact gross margin as a percentage of revenue, they only impact total gross margin if the costs cannot be passed through to customers. Our gross margin measure may not be comparable to other companies’ gross margin measures. Furthermore, this measure is not intended to replace operating income as determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of operating performance.

SEGMENT PERFORMANCE SUMMARY

Our segment highlights for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, are discussed below.

The following segment information does not include certain intercompany eliminations. Minor differences in comparative amounts may result due to rounding. All amounts are presented on a pre-tax basis unless otherwise indicated.

Certain industries in which we operate are highly seasonal, and revenue from, and certain expenses for, such operations may fluctuate significantly between quarterly periods. Demand for electricity and natural gas is sensitive to seasonal cooling, heating and industrial load requirements. In particular, the normal peak usage season for our electric utilities is June through August while the normal peak usage season for our gas utilities is November through March. Significant earnings variances can be expected between the Gas Utilities segment’s peak and off-peak seasons. Due to this seasonal nature, our results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for any other period or for the entire year.

________________
(a) In the first quarter of 2021, our Electric Utilities accrued $3.2 million of negative impacts to our regulated wholesale power margins due to the higher fuel costs from Winter Storm Uri. Through regulatory actions in the second quarter of 2021, our Electric Utilities were able to reduce $2.4 million of that negative impact.
(b) Mark-to-market losses of $3.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 will reverse in the second half of 2021 as these fixed price wholesale energy contracts are settled.
(c) In April 2021, Colorado Electric delivered TCJA-related bill credits to its customers. These bill credits were offset by a reduction in income tax expense and resulted in a minimal impact to Net Income.

Operations and maintenance expense increased primarily due to higher maintenance costs related to planned and unplanned outages at the Gillette, Wyoming energy complex and higher operating expenses associated with the Corriedale wind facility which was placed in service November 30, 2020.

Depreciation and amortization increased primarily due to a higher asset base driven by prior and current year capital expenditures.

____________________
(a) In June 2021, Nebraska Gas delivered TCJA-related bill credits to its customers. These bill credits were offset by a reduction in income tax expense and resulted in a minimal impact to Net Income.

Operations and maintenance expense increased due to $4.4 million of higher employee costs and outside services driven by higher headcount and higher stock compensation expense related to market performance, $1.6 million of increased facilities and office expenses, and $1.0 million of increased property taxes due to a higher asset base partially offset by $3.2 million of decreased bad debt expense associated with lower expected credit losses. Other expenses, none of which were individually significant, comprised the remainder of the difference when compared with the same period in the prior year.

Depreciation and amortization was comparable to the same period in the prior year due to lower depreciation rates approved in the Nebraska Gas and Colorado Gas rate reviews mostly offset by increased depreciation due to a higher asset base driven by prior and current year capital expenditures.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other represents certain unallocated expenses for administrative activities that support our reportable operating segments. Corporate and Other also includes business development activities that are not part of our operating segments.

Second Quarter 2021 Compared with Second Quarter 2020

Interest Expense

The increase in Interest expense, net was due to higher debt balances driven by the February 2021 term loan and the June 2020 senior unsecured notes partially offset by lower interest rates.

Other Income (Expense)

The decrease in Other (expense) was primarily due to lower non-service pension costs driven by a lower discount rate and lower costs for our non-qualified benefit plans which were driven by market performance.

Income Tax Benefit (Expense)

The effective tax rate was 2.0% compared to 16.4% for the same period in 2020. The lower effective tax rate is primarily due to $2.2 million of increased tax benefits from Nebraska Gas TCJA-related bill credits to customers (which is offset by reduced revenue) and $1.9 million of increased flow-through tax benefits related to repairs and certain indirect costs.
