Orange, CT – April 25, 2023 - 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 of $245 million, or $0.63 per share, compared to $445 million, or  $1.15 per share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Results for the first quarter of 2023 did not include the gain from the restructuring of the Company’s New England offshore wind lease partnership agreement of $181 million that was included in the results for the first quarter of 2022.

"We continued to advance our operational and strategic objectives in the first quarter," said Pedro  Azagra, chief executive officer of AVANGRID. “We are committed to operational excellence, executing on our priorities, and creating long-term value for our customers and shareholders. Over the last months, we have received a positive court ruling on our NECEC transmission project, approval of $2.25 billion in clean energy transmission investments, placed new renewables capacity in operation, extended our merger agreement with PNM Resources, and entered into a new partnership with the  Navajo Tribal Utility Authority, ensuring that AVANGRID leads the transition to a clean energy future.”

On a non-U.S. GAAP adjusted basis, consolidated net income for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $248 million, or $0.64 per share, compared to $450 million, or $1.16 per share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Networks
Networks earnings for the first quarter of 2023 were $195 million, or $0.51 per share, compared to $252 million, or $0.65 per share, for the same period in 2022. Networks results for the first quarter mainly benefited from the execution of rate plans and a positive arrearages order in New York which were offset by increased depreciation expense, business expenses, uncollectibles, taxes, and finance costs.

Renewables
Renewables earnings for the first quarter 2023 were $49 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to $208 million, or $0.54 per share, for the same period in 2022. Results for the first quarter of 2022 include the gain from the restructuring of the Company’s New England offshore wind lease partnership agreement of $181 million after-tax. Renewables results for the first quarter of 2023 benefited from favorable thermal and asset management and increased production and production tax credits, which were partially offset by increased depreciation and business expenses.

Non-U.S. GAAP adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share exclude mark-to-market adjustments in the Renewables segment 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.
