Ameren Announces 2023 Results and Issues Guidance for 2024 Earnings and Long-Term Growth

February 22, 2024
  • 2023 Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS) were $4.38, Compared to $4.14 in 2022
  • 2024 Diluted EPS Guidance Range Established at $4.52 to $4.72
  • 2024 through 2028 Diluted EPS Compound Annual Growth Rate Guidance of 6% to 8% using 2024 Guidance Midpoint as a Base

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE) today announced 2023 net income attributable to common shareholders of $1,152 million, or $4.38 per diluted share, compared to 2022 net income attributable to common shareholders of $1,074 million, or $4.14 per diluted share.

Earnings results for 2023 were driven by solid operating performance and execution of the company's strategy. Higher earnings were the result of increased infrastructure investments across all business segments. Ameren Missouri earnings benefited from new electric service rates effective July 9, 2023. Earnings were also favorably impacted by lower Ameren Missouri and Ameren Illinois Natural Gas operations and maintenance expenses. Ameren Illinois Electric Distribution earnings benefited from a higher allowed return on equity due to a higher 30-year U.S. Treasury bond yield in 2023 compared to 2022. Ameren Parent earnings benefited from lower income tax expense due, in part, to the effect of favorable market returns on company-owned life insurance (COLI) investments. These favorable factors were partially offset by lower Ameren Missouri electric retail sales, primarily driven by weather, increased interest expense at Ameren Missouri, Ameren Illinois Natural Gas and Ameren Parent and lower energy efficiency performance incentives at Ameren Missouri in 2023 as compared to 2022. Finally, the earnings comparison also reflected higher weighted-average basic common shares outstanding.

"We made significant strides in executing our strategy during 2023 for the benefit of our customers, communities and shareholders," said Martin J. Lyons Jr., chairman, president and chief executive officer of Ameren Corporation.  "This included completing substantial energy infrastructure investments, updating Ameren Missouri's Integrated Resource Plan, which calls for a diverse mix of generation investments to most affordably and reliably meet customer needs, and receiving approval to build additional renewable generation and transmission resources. Our continued investments are driving safer, more reliable and resilient service for customers as we transition to a cleaner energy future. We are confident our achievements this year will provide significant long-term value for our customers, communities, shareholders and the environment."

Ameren recorded net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended December 31, 2023, of $158 million, or 60 cents per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $163 million, or 63 cents per diluted share, for the same period in 2022. The year-over-year comparison reflected increased infrastructure investments across all business segments. Ameren Missouri earnings benefited from new electric service rates effective July 9, 2023. Ameren Illinois Electric Distribution earnings benefited from a higher allowed return on equity due to a higher 30-year U.S. Treasury bond yield in 2023 compared to 2022. These favorable factors were more than offset by lower Ameren Missouri electric retail sales driven primarily by milder-than-normal winter temperatures compared to the colder-than-normal winter temperatures in the year-ago quarter and higher interest expense at Ameren Parent.

Earnings and Rate Base Guidance

Ameren expects 2024 diluted earnings per share to be in a range of $4.52 to $4.72. Ameren expects diluted earnings per share to grow at a 6% to 8% compound annual rate from 2024 through 2028, using the 2024 guidance range midpoint of $4.62 per share as the base. Ameren's multi-year earnings growth is expected to be driven by projected rate base growth of approximately 8.2% compounded annually from 2023 through 2028.

"We remain focused on strong, sustainable execution of our strategy, which includes investments to modernize the energy grid and transition to a cleaner energy portfolio in a responsible fashion. This, along with our relentless focus on disciplined cost management and reliability, will continue to deliver superior value for our customers, the communities we serve, our shareholders and the environment," Lyons said.

Ameren's earnings guidance for 2024 and multi-year growth expectations assume normal temperatures and are subject to the effects of, among other things: regulatory, judicial and legislative actions; energy center and energy distribution operations; energy, economic, capital and credit market conditions; customer usage; severe storms; market returns on COLI investments; unusual or otherwise unexpected gains or losses; and other risks and uncertainties outlined, or referred to, in the Forward-looking Statements section of this release.

Ameren Missouri Segment Results

Ameren Missouri 2023 earnings were $545 million, compared to 2022 earnings of $562 million. The year-over-year comparison reflected increased earnings on infrastructure investments, new electric service rates effective July 9, 2023 and lower operations and maintenance expenses. These favorable factors were more than offset by lower electric retail sales driven primarily by weather, lower energy efficiency performance incentives, and higher interest expense.

Ameren Illinois Electric Distribution Segment Results

Ameren Illinois Electric Distribution 2023 earnings were $258 million, compared to 2022 earnings of $202 million. The year-over-year improvement reflected increased earnings on infrastructure investments and a higher allowed return on equity due to a higher average 30-year U.S. Treasury bond yield in 2023 compared to 2022.

Ameren Illinois Natural Gas Segment Results

Ameren Illinois Natural Gas 2023 earnings were $134 million, compared to 2022 earnings of $123 million. The year-over-year improvement reflected increased earnings on infrastructure investments and lower operations and maintenance expenses due, in part, to the effect of favorable market returns on COLI investments. These favorable factors were partially offset by higher interest expense.

Ameren Transmission Segment Results

Ameren Transmission 2023 earnings were $296 million, compared to 2022 earnings of $263 million. The year-over-year improvement reflected increased earnings on infrastructure investments.

Ameren Parent Results (includes items not reported in a business segment)

Ameren Parent results for 2023 reflected a loss of $81 million, compared to a 2022 loss of $76 million. The year-over-year comparison reflected lower tax expense due, in part to, COLI investment performance, which was more than offset by higher interest expense primarily due to higher interest rates. 

Analyst Conference Call

Ameren will conduct a conference call for financial analysts at 9 a.m. Central Time on Friday, Feb. 23 to discuss 2023 earnings, 2024 earnings guidance and other matters. Investors, the news media and the public may listen to a live broadcast of the call at AmerenInvestors.com by clicking on "Webcast" under "Q4 2023 Earnings Conference Call," where an accompanying slide presentation will also be available.

Although such forward-looking statements have been made in good faith and are based on reasonable assumptions, there is no assurance that the expected results will be achieved. These statements include (without limitation) statements as to future expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, strategies, targets, estimates, objectives, events, conditions, and financial performance. In connection with the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, we are providing this cautionary statement to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. The following factors, in addition to those discussed under Risk Factors in Ameren's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 and elsewhere in this release and in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, could cause actual results to differ materially from management expectations suggested in such forward-looking statements:

  • regulatory, judicial, or legislative actions, and any changes in regulatory policies and ratemaking determinations, that may change regulatory recovery mechanisms, such as those that may result from Ameren Missouri's petition to the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC) for a financing order to authorize the issuance of securitized utility tariff bonds to finance the cost of the planned retirement of the Rush Island Energy Center, Ameren Missouri's proposed customer energy-efficiency plan under the Missouri Energy Efficiency Investment Act (MEEIA) filed with the MoPSC in January 2024, Ameren Illinois' December 2023 Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) order for the Multi-Year Rate Plan (MYRP) electric distribution service regulatory rate review that directed Ameren Illinois to file a revised Grid Plan for 2023 through 2027 along with Ameren Illinois' January 2024 rehearing request of the order and appeal of the order to the Illinois Appellate Court for the Fifth Judicial District, Ameren Illinois' appeal of the November 2023 ICC natural gas delivery service rate order to the Illinois Appellate Court for the Fifth Judicial District, and the August 2022 United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruling that vacated FERC's Midcontinent Independent System Operator, Inc., a regional transmission organization (MISO) return on equity-determining orders and remanded the proceedings to the FERC;
  • our ability to control costs and make substantial investments in our businesses, including our ability to recover costs and investments, and to earn our allowed return on equity (ROEs), within frameworks established by our regulators, while maintaining affordability of services for our customers;
  • the effect and duration of Ameren Illinois' election to utilize MYRPs for electric distribution service ratemaking effective for rates beginning in 2024, including the effect of the reconciliation cap on the electric distribution revenue requirement;

  • the actions of credit rating agencies and the effects of such actions;
  • the impact of weather conditions and other natural phenomena on us and our customers, including the impact of system outages and the level of wind and solar resources;
  • the construction, installation, performance, and cost recovery of generation, transmission, and distribution assets;
  • the ability to maintain system reliability during the transition to clean energy generation by Ameren Missouri and the electric utility industry as well as Ameren Missouri's ability to meet generation capacity obligations;

  • the impact of complying with renewable energy standards in Missouri and Illinois and with the zero emission standard in Illinois;
  • the effectiveness of Ameren Missouri's customer energy-efficiency programs and the related revenues and performance incentives earned under its MEEIA programs;
  • Ameren Illinois' ability to achieve the performance standards applicable to its electric distribution business and electric customer energy-efficiency goals and the resulting impact on its allowed ROE;
  • labor disputes, work force reductions, changes in future wage and employee benefits costs, including those resulting from changes in discount rates, mortality tables, returns on benefit plan assets, and other assumptions;
  • the impact of negative opinions of us or our utility services that our customers, investors, legislators, regulators, creditors, or other stakeholders may have or develop, which could result from a variety of factors, including failures in system reliability, failure to implement our investment plans or to protect sensitive customer information, increases in rates, negative media coverage, or concerns about environmental, social, and/or governance practices;
  • the impact of adopting new accounting and reporting guidance;
  • the effects of strategic initiatives, including mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures;

Given these uncertainties, undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements. Except to the extent required by the federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements to reflect new information or future events.
