Feb 26, 2010
  • Full year Proportional Free Cash Flow of $899 million, compared to $466 million in 2008
  • Full year Adjusted EPS of $1.08, compared to $1.08 in 2008
  • Full year Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations of $1.09, compared to $1.76 in 2008
  • Full year Consolidated Free Cash Flow of $1.6 billion, compared to $1.4 billion in 2008
  • Full year Consolidated Cash Flow from Operating Activities $2.2 billion, compared to $2.2 billion in 2008
  • Updates guidance provided for 2010 and 2011

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb 26, 2010 -- The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) today reported results for the full year 2009, during which the Company benefited from the diversity of its portfolio across markets and energy sources. Operational improvements in Chile, the Philippines and Brazil helped offset unfavorable foreign currency impacts as well as reduced demand and lower electricity prices in North America.

"In 2009, we focused on generating liquidity for our pipeline of growth investments and on improving the cash flows of our operating businesses. We met our full year guidance for proportional free cash flow and adjusted earnings per share and generated an all-time record of $1.25 billion in distributions from subsidiaries. Through February of 2010, we also brought approximately 1,300 MW of core power and renewable projects into commercial operation, the majority of which are in countries where there is a stronger pace of economic recovery, notably in Latin America and the Middle East," said Paul Hanrahan, President and Chief Executive Officer of AES Corporation. "Throughout the year, we also continued moving our business development activities forward, creating multiple options to invest in both our core power business in high growth regions as well as renewable power projects globally, which will drive our growth beyond 2011."

Fourth Quarter 2009 Financial Highlights:

During the quarter, the Company benefited from improved operating performance at its generation business in the Philippines and a lower effective tax rate, in part, because of non-taxable earnings at its Brazilian businesses. In addition, foreign currencies strengthened against the U.S. Dollar. These factors helped offset reduced demand and lower electricity prices in North America.

Results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2009 include the following:

(a non-GAAP financial measure)

Key drivers of the Fourth Quarter results include (comparison of Q4 2009 vs. Q4 2008):

  • Consolidated Revenue increased by $381 million to $3.8 billion. Of that amount, $421 million was due to favorable translation impact due to a weaker U.S. Dollar relative to foreign currencies. For example, the Brazilian Real appreciated 24 percent, which accounted for more than $400 million of the increase in revenue. In addition, higher revenues resulted from an increase in tariff rates at Latin America utilities (which reflected higher energy prices that were passed through to customers) and improved operational performance in the Philippines. These gains were offset by lower commodity input prices, which translated into lower revenues at generation businesses in New York and the United Kingdom, and lower volume in Hungary.
  • Consolidated Gross Margin increased by $163 million to $831 million, which reflected favorable foreign currency exchange rates of $89 million, improved operating performance in the Philippines of approximately $50 million and lower net non-cash, mark-to-market derivative losses of $41 million. These contributions were partially offset by decreased volume in New York, where unfavorable electricity pricing resulted in lower dispatch.
  • Proportional Gross Margin (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) increased by $112 million to $481 million. The Company's increase in Proportional Gross Margin was primarily due to improved operating performance in the Philippines, favorable foreign exchange rates and lower non-cash, mark-to-market derivative losses. These contributions were partially offset by lower demand and electricity prices in North America.
  • Consolidated Cash Flow from Operating Activities decreased by $293 million to $316 million. These results reflected a one-time tax payment of $331 million at one of the Company's businesses in Brazil. In addition, working capital requirements increased at the Company's businesses in Africa and Pakistan.
  • Proportional Cash Flow from Operating Activities (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) decreased by $139 million to $177 million. The same factors that contributed to Consolidated Cash Flow from Operating Activities contributed to Proportional Cash Flow from Operating Activities.
  • Consolidated Free Cash Flow (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) decreased by $212 million to $123 million. The decrease was primarily because of a decline in consolidated operating cash flow, which was offset in part by lower maintenance capital expenditures.
  • Proportional Free Cash Flow (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) decreased by $66 million to $47 million. The decrease was a result of a $139 million decline in proportional operating cash flow, which was partially offset by favorable proportional maintenance capital expenditures.
  • Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS) from Continuing Operations increased $0.18 per share to $0.08 per share. The 2008 results included non-cash mark-to-market losses and a loss on the sale of interest in Gener.
  • Adjusted EPS (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) increased $0.01 per share to $0.22 per share. The increase was primarily attributable to higher gross margin and a lower effective tax rate of 23 percent versus 37 percent in 2008. These improvements were partially offset by a non-cash charge related to computation of taxes on the hypothetical liquidation of non-controlling interests at several wind generation businesses.

2009 Financial Highlights:

The Company continued to benefit from the diversity of its portfolio across markets and energy sources. The Company's continued efforts to improve operations, reduce fixed costs and improve working capital contributed to the favorable year-over-year results. The Company's operational improvements were most notable at its generation businesses in Chile and Asia, as well as its businesses in Brazil. These improvements helped offset unfavorable foreign currency impacts as well as reduced demand and lower electricity prices in North America. The Company also benefited from a lower effective tax rate.

Key drivers of the Full Year results include (comparison of FY 2009 vs. FY 2008):

  • Consolidated Revenue decreased by $1.2 billion to $14.1 billion. Of that amount, $997 million, or 80 percent, resulted from a weakening of foreign currencies against the U.S. Dollar. In particular, the Brazilian Real depreciated nine percent, which accounted for approximately $500 million of the decline in revenue. Lower commodity prices resulted in a decline in revenue at the Company's generation businesses, particularly in Chile. In addition, there were lower commodity prices and lower volumes at the Company's generation businesses in the Dominican Republic and New York.
  • Consolidated Gross Margin decreased by $137 million to $3.5 billion. The decline was primarily due to the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar relative to key currencies, which totaled $218 million. The largest driver of the currency impact was the Brazilian Real, which accounted for approximately 65 percent of the decline. Gross margin benefited from improved operating performance at the Company's generation businesses in Chile and the Philippines. These improvements were offset by lower electricity prices and volume at the Company's generation businesses in New York, Argentina and the Dominican Republic.
  • Proportional Gross Margin (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) declined by $229 million to $2.0 billion, primarily because of lower electricity prices and volumes at the Company's generation businesses in New York and Argentina; unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates; and loss of the contribution from the Northern Kazakhstan businesses sold in 2008. These decreases were partially offset by improved operations in Chile and the Philippines.
  • Consolidated Cash Flow from Operating Activities increased by $52 million to $2.2 billion. The results reflected higher gross margin at the Company's generation businesses in Chile and the Philippines. In addition, working capital improvements from the collection of receivables at the Company's generation businesses in Pakistan and the Dominican Republic and lower fuel inventories in Chile contributed to the increased operating cash flow.
  • Proportional Cash Flow from Operating Activities (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) increased by $311 million to $1.3 billion. The same factors that contributed to Consolidated Cash Flow from Operating Activities contributed to Proportional Cash Flow from Operating Activities.
  • Consolidated Free Cash Flow (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) increased by $210 million to $1.6 billion. This change was primarily due to lower maintenance capital expenditures of $158 million.
  • Proportional Free Cash Flow (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation) increased by $433 million to $899 million.
  • Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations of $1.09 decreased from $1.76 in 2008. The decline was primarily attributable to the gain realized in 2008 from the sale of Northern Kazakhstan assets of $1.31 offset partially by debt retirement losses incurred in 2008 of $0.25.
  • Adjusted EPS (a non-GAAP financial measure, see Appendix for definition and reconciliation), of $1.08 was unchanged relative to 2008. The Company met its full year guidance of $1.07 to $1.11 despite a $0.05 negative per share impact associated with the sale of Oman and Pakistan businesses, which are now reported under discontinued operations. In addition to the gross margin drivers listed above, the Company benefited from a lower effective tax rate and reduced corporate overhead, which were partially offset by a non-cash charge that was related to the computation of taxes on the hypothetical liquidation of non-controlling interests at several wind generation businesses.
FY 2009 FY 2008
Diluted Earnings Per Share from Continuing Operations $ 1.09 $ 1.76
Derivative Mark-to-Market (Gains)/Losses $ 0.02 $ 0.05
Currency Transaction (Gains)/Losses $ (0.05) $ 0.16
Disposition/Acquisition (Gains)/Losses $ (0.19) $ (1.27)

Adjusted EPS (a non-GAAP financial measure) $ 1.08 $ 1.08

See Appendix for more detail.

Other Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • The Company completed construction and brought into commercial operation 187 MW, including the 101 MW Armenia Mountain wind project in Pennsylvania, U.S. and the 86 MW Dibamba heavy fuel oil facility in Cameroon. These additions raised the total of new projects brought on-line during 2009 and through February 2010 to 1,300 MW.
  • AES Solar Energy, the Company's joint venture with Riverstone Holdings, LLC, closed approximately $75 million in non-recourse financing on five projects in Europe.
  • The Company entered into agreements to sell its equity interests in its Oman and Pakistan facilities for $200 million and is on track to close the transactions in first half of 2010. Until the transactions close, these businesses will be reported as discontinued operations and their earnings will not be reported as part of income from continuing operations.
  • The Company announced an agreement to issue 125.5 million shares to China Investment Corporation ("CIC") for $1.6 billion; the transaction is expected to close in first half of 2010.
  • AES Energy Storage commissioned a 12 MW lithium ion battery frequency regulation and spinning reserve project at AES Gener, the first energy storage system in Chile.

Other Full Year Highlights:

  • The Company completed $2.5 billion of debt financing activities, which included $1.3 billion at the Parent Company and $1.2 billion of non-recourse financing at subsidiaries.
  • The Company achieved its $150 million cost savings target. This was realized by reductions in areas of business development, corporate overhead, fixed costs and fuel procurement.

2010-2011 Guidance:

The Company updated guidance for the years 2010 and 2011. The revised guidance is based on foreign exchange and commodity forward prices as of December 31, 2009. The guidance does not include the potential issuance of 125.5 million shares of common stock as a result of the previously announced equity sale agreement with CIC.

When compared to 2009, guidance for both 2010 and 2011 benefit from (i) projected contributions of new businesses, (ii) favorable foreign currency rates, and (iii) year -over -year improvements in economic outlook in locations such as Brazil. These improvements are offset by (i) gains in 2009 related to the performance incentive bonus for the management of Kazakhstan businesses sold in 2008, (ii) a gain related to the settlement of a claim at a European subsidiary (iii) lower electricity prices at the Company's merchant businesses, primarily in New York and Hungary, (iv) a planned step down in capacity payments related to the recovery of capital expenditures on pollution control equipment at the Company's Kilroot facility in the United Kingdom and (v) an estimated increase in the effective tax rate to the low 30s percentage range in 2010 and to the mid 30s percentage range in 2011, generally due to the absence of certain discrete items that benefited the rate in 2009.

Relative to prior guidance, both 2010 and 2011 benefit from favorable foreign currency rates and improved operations. These improvements are offset by (i) lower electricity prices at the Company's merchant businesses, primarily in New York and Hungary, (ii) higher business development expenses, (iii) a non-cash charge related to taxes for the hypothetical liquidation of non-controlling interests at several of the Company's wind generation businesses and lower than projected wind generation in North America, and (iv) the sale of Oman and Pakistan facilities.

Key elements of the updated guidance include:

Adjusted Earnings Per Share(1) $ 0.22 $ 0.21 $ 1.08 $ 1.08
(1)

Adjusted earnings per share (a non-GAAP financial measure) is defined as diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding gains or losses of the consolidated entity due to (a) mark-to-market amounts related to derivative transactions, (b) unrealized foreign currency gains or losses, (c) significant gains or losses due to dispositions and acquisitions of business interests, (d) significant losses due to impairments, and (e) costs due to the early retirement of debt. AES believes that adjusted earnings per share better reflects the underlying business performance of the Company, and is considered in the Company's internal evaluation of financial performance. Factors in this determination include the variability due to mark-to-market gains or losses related to derivative transactions, currency gains or losses, losses due to impairments and strategic decisions to dispose or acquire business interests or retire debt which affect results in a given period or periods. Adjusted earnings per share should not be construed as an alternative to diluted earnings per share, which is determined in accordance with GAAP.

(2) Amount includes: Net loss on sale of subsidiary interests of $0.04 per share primarily due to the sale of interest in Gener of $31 million. There was no income tax impact associated with this transaction.
(3) Amount includes: Kazakhstan gain of $98 million, or $0.15 per share, related to the termination of a management agreement as well as a gain of $13 million, or $0.02 per share, related to the reversal of a withholding tax contingency. In addition, there was a gain on sale associated with the shutdown of the Hefei plant in China of $14 million, or $0.02 per share. There was no income tax impact associated with any of these transactions.
(4) Amount includes: Net gain on Kazakhstan sale of $905 million, or $1.31 per share, and net loss on sale of subsidiary interests in Gener of $31 million, or $0.04 per share as noted in footnote (2).
(5) Amount includes: Goodwill impairments at Kilroot of $118 million or $0.18 per share and in the Ukraine of $4 million or $0.01 per share; write-off of development project costs in Latin America and Asia of $19 million ($11 million net of noncontrolling interest, or $0.01 per share). There was no income tax impact associated with any of these transactions.
(6) Amount includes: Impairment charges primarily associated with development projects in North America of $75 million ($34 million net of noncontrolling interest and income taxes or $0.06 per share) and an impairment of the Company's investment in coal to gas technology of $10 million or $0.01 per share.
(7) Amount includes: Items referenced in footnote (5) and a non-taxable impairment of the Company's investment in coal to gas technology of $10 million or $0.01 per share.
(8) Amount includes: Items referenced in footnote (6); Uruguaiana asset write down of $36 million ($17 million net of noncontrolling interest or $0.02 per share); and South Africa peaker development cost write-off of $31 million ($28 million net of income taxes or $0.04 per share).
(9) Amount includes: $55 million ($34 million net of income tax, or $0.05 per share) loss on the retirement of Parent Company debt; $131 million, or $0.19 per share, which represented the tax impact on the repatriation of a portion of the Kazakhstan sale proceeds that were used to fund the early retirement of Parent Company debt; and $14 million ($9 million net of income tax, or $0.01 per share) of debt refinancing at IPALCO.

(1) Adjusted Gross Margin is defined by the Company as: Gross margin plus depreciation and amortization less general and administrative expenses. AES believes adjusted gross margin is a useful measure for evaluating and comparing the operating performance of its businesses because it includes the direct operating costs of its business including overhead related expenses and excludes potential differences caused by variations in capital structures affecting interest income and expense, tax positions, such as the impact of changes in effective tax rates and the impact of depreciation and amortization expense.

Subsidiary distributions should not be construed as an alternative to Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities which are determined in accordance with GAAP. Subsidiary distributions are important to the Parent Company because the Parent Company is a holding company that does not derive any significant direct revenues from its own activities but instead relies on its subsidiaries' business activities and the resultant distributions to fund the debt service, investment and other cash needs of the holding company. The reconciliation of difference between the subsidiary distributions and the Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities consists of cash generated from operating activities that is retained at the subsidiaries for a variety of reasons which are both discretionary and non-discretionary in nature. These factors include, but are not limited to, retention of cash to fund capital expenditures at the subsidiary, cash retention associated with non-recourse debt covenant restrictions and related debt service requirements at the subsidiaries, retention of cash related to sufficiency of local GAAP statutory retained earnings at the subsidiaries, retention of cash for working capital needs at the subsidiaries, and other similar timing differences between when the cash is generated at the subsidiaries and when it reaches the Parent Company and related holding companies.

needs at the subsidiaries, and other similar timing differences between when the cash is generated at the subsidiaries and when it reaches the Parent Company and related holding companies.
(2) Parent Company Liquidity is defined as cash at the Parent Company plus availability under corporate credit facilities plus cash at qualifying holding companies ("QHCs"). AES believes that unconsolidated Parent Company liquidity is important to the liquidity position of AES as a Parent Company because of the non-recourse nature of most of AES's indebtedness.
(3) The cash held at QHCs represents cash sent to subsidiaries of the Company domiciled outside of the US. Such subsidiaries had no contractual restrictions on their ability to send cash to AES, the Parent Company. Cash at those subsidiaries was used for investment and related activities outside of the US. These investments included equity investments and loans to other foreign subsidiaries as well as development and general costs and expenses incurred outside the US. Since the cash held by these QHCs is available to the Parent, AES uses the combined measure of subsidiary distributions to Parent and QHCs as a useful measure of cash available to the Parent to meet its international liquidity needs.

AES is a holding company that derives its income and cash flows from the activities of its subsidiaries, some of which may not be wholly-owned by the Company. Accordingly, the Company has presented certain financial metrics which are defined as Proportional (a non-GAAP financial measure). Proportional metrics present the Company's estimate of its share in the economics of the underlying metric. The Company believes that the Proportional metrics are useful to investors because they exclude the economic share in the metric presented that is held by non-AES shareholders. For example, Operating Cash Flow is a GAAP metric which presents the Company's cash flow from operations on a consolidated basis, including operating cash flow allocable to noncontrolling interests. Proportional Operating Cash Flow removes the share of operating cash flow allocable to noncontrolling interests and therefore may act as an aid in the valuation of the Company. Proportional metrics are reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure. Certain assumptions have been made to estimate our proportional financial measures. These assumptions include: (i) the Company's economic interest has been calculated based on a blended rate for each consolidated business when such business represents multiple legal entities; (ii) the Company's economic interest may differ from the percentage implied by the recorded net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interests or dividends paid during a given period; (iii) the Company's economic interest for entities accounted for using the hypothetical liquidation at book value method is 100%; (iv) individual operating performance of the Company's equity method investments is not reflected and (v) all intercompany amounts have been excluded as applicable.
