Orange, CT – July 26, 2022 - Today AVANGRID, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), a leading sustainable energy company, and a member of the group of companies controlled by IBERDROLA, S.A., reported consolidated U.S. GAAP net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 of $184 million, or $0.48 per share, compared to $98 million, or $0.28 per share, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. For the first half of 2022, consolidated net income was $629 million, or $1.63 per share, compared to $432 million, or $1.31 per share, for the first half of 2021. 

On a non-U.S. GAAP adjusted basis, consolidated net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $178 million, or $0.46 per share, compared to $122 million, or $0.35 per share, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. For the first half of 2022, non-U.S. GAAP adjusted net income was $628 million, or $1.62 per share, compared to $476 million, or $1.45 per share, for the first half of 2021.

Weighted average shares outstanding for the second quarter and first half of 2022 were 386.7 million, compared to 347.1 million and 328.4 million during the same periods in 2021, respectively. 

"Our continued operational excellence, strong leadership, and focus on execution translated into excellent second quarter and first half financial performance," said Pedro Azagra, chief executive officer of AVANGRID. “We are making significant investments in infrastructure, including those that will make the system more resilient against storms. Our utilities in New York recently received a well-deserved award from the Edison Electric Institute Emergency Recovery for their quick system recovery and assistance efforts following recent extreme weather event."

"It is a very exciting time for AVANGRID and I am honored to lead the Company as we accelerate the transformation to a clean energy future. In our Networks business the rate cases we are filing this year propose important investments to update critical grid infrastructure, enhance reliability and resiliency, and deliver on each state's clean energy commitments, contributing to economic development and job creation," added Azagra. "In Renewables, we commissioned 201 MW in the second quarter and remain on track for an additional ~400 MW to be commissioned in 2022. We are leading the offshore wind industry in the U.S. with our three contracted projects of ~2.4 GW capacity in New England - Vineyard Wind 1, Park City Wind and Commonwealth Wind - as well as our ~2.5 GW Kitty Hawk lease area in the mid-Atlantic. The development of our portfolio alone will significantly contribute to the U.S. government's goal to deploy 30 GW of offshore wind by 2030."

Networks
Networks earnings for the second quarter and first half of 2022 compared to the same periods in 2021 increased, mainly benefiting from the successful execution of rate plans in New York and the impacts from a New York regulatory order providing for the recovery of customer arrearages. This favorability was partially offset by higher depreciation expense for assets placed in service and higher expenses related to rate plan commitments, net of higher labor capitalization.

Renewables
Renewables results for the second quarter benefited primarily from favorable pricing. For the first half of 2022, results improved mainly due to the gain from the restructuring of the Company’s New England offshore wind lease partnership agreement in the first quarter of 2022, and also benefited from higher mark-to-market earnings, improved pricing and production, including curtailment payments, and the contribution of new capacity, partially offset by higher depreciation expense and the first quarter 2021 benefits from Storm Uri to ERCOT pricing and thermal and asset management.


Outlook
AVANGRID is re-affirming its 2022 U.S. GAAP Net Income and non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Income outlook of $850-$920 million or $2.20-$2.38 per share, based on 387 million average shares outstanding. This outlook includes the after-tax gain from the restructuring of the Company’s New 
England offshore wind partnership agreement.

Non-U.S. GAAP adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share exclude mark-to-market adjustments in the Renewables segment, restructuring charges, merger costs and COVID-19 impacts.  For additional information, see “Use of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures” at the end of this release.
