Vistra Reports First Quarter 2020 Results Above Expectations and Reaffirms 2020 Guidance

May 05, 2020

IRVING, Texas , May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vistra (NYSE: VST):

Financial Highlights

  • Delivered first quarter 2020 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA 1 of $850 million and Net Income from Ongoing Operations 1 of $62 million—results above consensus and management expectations for the quarter. Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA 1 results were $26 million 2 better than first quarter 2019 primarily driven by the acquisitions of Ambit Energy and Crius Energy.
  • Reaffirmed 2020 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA and Ongoing Operations Adjusted FCFbG guidance ranges of $3,285 to $3,585 million 1 and $2,160 to $2,460 million , 1,3 respectively.
    • ­Vistra expects its integrated business model to continue to demonstrate its strength and relative stability in 2020.
    • Vistra's guidance reaffirmation reflects its meaningful hedge position (Vistra is approximately 99% hedged for the balance of the year) and its attractive retail customer mix (Vistra derives approximately 90% of its Retail segment Adjusted EBITDA from the residential and mass business customer classes), thereby minimizing the current and potential negative impacts of COVID-19 including lower business demand for electricity, lower power prices and volumes in 2020 reflecting this decreased demand, and anticipated increased bad debt in the Retail segment.
  • Paid a quarterly dividend of $0.135 per share on March 31, 2020 , to shareholders of record as of March 17, 2020 , and announced the second quarter dividend of $0.135 per share payable on June 30, 2020 , to shareholders of record as of June 16, 2020 , or $0.54 per share on an annualized basis. This dividend represents an 8% increase from the company's quarterly common stock dividend paid in 2019.
  • Announced it is on track to achieve nearly $700 million of the projected ~$760 million of Dynegy, Crius, and Ambit merger synergies and Operations Performance Initiative (OPI) EBITDA value lever targets by year-end 2020. Vistra expects to realize and achieve the EBITDA value lever targets as follows:

COVID-19 Response

  • Vistra took proactive measures to protect its employees and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on our business, including:
    • Suspending non-essential business travel and restricting access to corporate offices and plants.
    • Initiating early implementation of temperature testing and entry questionnaires at our corporate offices and plant sites and institution of a work-from-home policy for all employees with remote-work capabilities.
    • Requiring face coverings and social distancing and thoroughly cleaning facilities between shifts.
    • Executing commercial transactions to better position Vistra for anticipated market moves.
  • As a result, Vistra has been able to operate safely, ensuring we can continue to provide essential electricity to the communities relying on us to power their daily lives. Vistra has:
    • Completed, or is on track to complete, 86 maintenance outages during its spring maintenance season to ensure plant reliability for the critical summer months.
    • Maintained call center service levels >90% within Vistra Retail in the first quarter and >92% in April.
    • Recorded only 2 positive tests to date among its ~5,500 employees and ~3,000 contractors in 20 states and the District of Columbia ; neither case was contracted at work and neither individual became a part of the employee population upon contracting the virus; both have since recovered.
  • Vistra also took various actions to assist our customers and our communities during this unprecedented time, including:
    • Waiving late fees, extending payment dates, and providing payment plans for those impacted by COVID-19.
    • Offering bill payment assistance through TXU Energy Aid.
    • Donating $2 million for COVID-19 relief efforts to non-profits and social service agencies in the communities we serve.

Growth Highlights

  • Announced an expansion of the company's battery energy storage project located at the site of its Oakland Power Plant. The battery will now have a capacity of 36.25 MW/145 MWh instead of the previously announced capacity of 20 MW/80 MWh. Vistra anticipates the battery storage project will enter commercial operations by Jan. 2022 .

Q1 2019 results for four MISO assets retired in late 2019 were recast from the MISO segment to the Asset Closure segment, resulting in an increase of $9 million to our Q1 2019 MISO segment results.

(3)

Vistra has not updated its 2020 Ongoing Operations Adjusted FCFbG guidance to reflect the early receipt of $93 million of alternative minimum tax (AMT) refunds in 2019 that were forecast to be received in 2020. In accordance with the recently passed Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Vistra will accelerate its claim of approximately $64 million of AMT refunds on its 2020 tax return. We expect we will receive the $64 million refund in the second half of 2020.

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 , Vistra reported Net Income from Ongoing Operations 1 of $62 million and Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA 1 of $850 million . Vistra's first quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $26 million 2 higher than first quarter 2019 results, driven by the acquisitions of Ambit Energy and Crius Energy and partially offset by lower generation results driven principally by lower capacity payments in its NY/NE and MISO segments.

Vistra reported first quarter Adjusted EBITDA from the Retail segment of $311 million, $54 million higher than first quarter 2019 results, driven primarily by the additions of Ambit Energy and Crius Energy. First quarter Adjusted EBITDA from the generation segments totaled $539 million , 3 $28 million 2 lower than first quarter 2019 results due to lower results in the NY/NE and MISO segments, primarily driven by lower capacity revenues.

"First and foremost, our hearts go out to those who have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 virus. While uncertainty remains, we are confident the American compassion, courage, ingenuity, and resilience will win out," said Curt Morgan , Vistra's president and chief executive officer. "Vistra started the year executing and delivering strong financial results and we are on track to continue to do so, even in the face of headwinds from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our business model – one that prioritizes a strong balance sheet and low-cost, integrated operations – is proving to be more important than ever during this time of economic uncertainty and volatility. We took actions early in the year to prepare our operations for this environment, ensuring the health and safety of our employees while fulfilling our obligation to provide an essential service. Reliable power has perhaps never been more important than it is today, allowing people to shelter in place and providing the essential electricity to keep lifesaving medical equipment running. Vistra takes very seriously its obligation to keep our employees healthy and safe and to provide the American people with affordable and reliable power. I am extremely proud of our team's commitment to execution during these trying times."

Capital Allocation

Vistra took steps within the quarter to reduce its long-term debt obligations. In Jan. 2020 , Vistra redeemed the remaining $81 million of 8.000% senior unsecured notes due 2025, and in March 2020 , Vistra Operations repurchased $100 million principal amount of Term Loan B-3 under the credit facility. On May 1, 2020 , Vistra notified the holders of its 5.875% senior unsecured notes due 2023 that it will redeem all $500 million aggregate principal amount of such notes on June 1, 2020 . Vistra continues to prioritize debt reduction in 2020 and, as a result, has not repurchased additional shares under its authorized share repurchase program since Nov. 2019 . Net shares outstanding are approximately 488.6 million as of April 30, 2020 . Vistra is on track to communicate its long-term capital allocation plan in late September of this year.

Liquidity

Vistra believes it has sufficient liquidity to continue business operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Vistra's maturities of long-term debt are relatively modest until 2023. As of March 31, 2020 , Vistra had total available liquidity of approximately $1,834 million , including cash and cash equivalents of $717 million and $1,117 million of availability under its revolving credit facility. The company had $1,415 million of letters of credit outstanding as of March 31, 2020 . In April 2020 , Vistra repaid $550 million aggregate principal amount of revolving credit loans outstanding utilizing cash on hand.

Earnings Webcast

Vistra will host a webcast today, May 5, 2020 , beginning at 8 a.m. ET ( 7 a.m. CT ) to discuss these results and related matters. The live, listen-only webcast and the accompanying slides that will be discussed on the call can be accessed via the investor relations section of Vistra's website at www.vistraenergy.com . A replay of the webcast will be available on the Vistra website for one year following the live event.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Items Affecting Comparability

"Adjusted EBITDA" (EBITDA as adjusted for unrealized gains or losses from hedging activities, tax receivable agreement impacts, reorganization items, and certain other items described from time to time in Vistra's earnings releases),"Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth" (or "Adjusted FCFbG") (cash from operating activities excluding changes in margin deposits and working capital and adjusted for capital expenditures (including capital expenditures for growth investments), other net investment activities, preferred stock dividends, and other items described from time to time in Vistra's earnings releases), "Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA" (adjusted EBITDA less adjusted EBITDA from Asset Closure segment) and "Ongoing Operations Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth" or "Ongoing Operations Adjusted FCFbG" (adjusted free cash flow before growth less cash flow from operating activities from Asset Closure segment before growth), are "non-GAAP financial measures." A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in Vistra's consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders' equity and cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Vistra's non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

Vistra uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance and believes that analysis of its business by external users is enhanced by visibility to both net income prepared in accordance with GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA. Vistra uses Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth as a measure of liquidity and believes that analysis of its ability to service its cash obligations is supported by disclosure of both cash provided by (used in) operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP as well as Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth. Vistra uses Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance and Ongoing Operations Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth as a measure of liquidity and Vistra's management and board of directors have found it informative to view the Asset Closure segment as separate and distinct from Vistra's ongoing operations. The schedules attached to this earnings release reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
