HEI REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2018 EARNINGS

2Q2018 Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS) of $0.42
Schofield MPIR Approved as Utility Advances Renewable Strategy
Another Record Quarter of Bank Earnings

HONOLULU - Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (NYSE - HE) (HEI) today reported consolidated net income for common stock for the second quarter of 2018 of $46.1 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.42 compared to $38.7 million and EPS of $0.36 for the second quarter of 2017.
“HEI delivered solid results for the second quarter of 2018 as we continue to make significant progress on our strategies across our companies,” said Constance H. Lau, president and CEO of HEI.
“In the second quarter our utilities continued to pave the way to add more renewables while increasing resilience, reliability and customer options. We brought our state-of-the-art, flexible, Schofield Generating Station online in June, under budget. The facility uses biofuels and conventional fuels, enhances reliability as we add more solar and wind resources and is the first project approved for recovery under the Major Projects Interim Recovery (MPIR) mechanism. In addition, we applied to implement the first phase of our grid modernization plan to make our grid more renewable-ready and provide greater customer options. Our utilities are receiving national attention for their efforts and were named Investor-Owned Utility of the Year by Smart Electric Power Alliance for their grid modernization work and innovation.”
“Our bank again delivered solid performance, with increased profitability and its second consecutive quarter of record earnings. American continues to execute well and benefit from the bottom line impacts of tax reform, and remains focused on making banking easier for customers and deepening customer relationships,” said Lau.

HAWAIIAN ELECTRIC COMPANY EARNINGS
Hawaiian Electric Company’s1 net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $31.2 million compared to $25.6 million in the second quarter of 2017, primarily driven by the following after-tax items:
$8 million higher rate adjustment mechanism (RAM) revenues, primarily due to lower RAM revenues in the second quarter of 2017 because of the return in 2017 to recording Oahu RAM revenues for accounting purposes on a lagged basis beginning June 1, 2017, instead of on a calendar year basis; and
$7 million of rate relief from Hawaiian Electric’s 2017 test year and Hawaii Electric Light’s 2016 test year.
These items were partially offset by the following after-tax items:
$6 million higher O&M expenses2 compared to 2017, primarily due to the reset of pension costs as part of rate case decisions, Hawaii Island lava eruption response costs, and higher vegetation management costs, partially offset by higher overhauls in the prior year quarter;
$2 million higher depreciation expense as a result of increasing investments for the integration of more renewable energy, improved customer reliability and greater system efficiency; and
$2 million lower net income, representing the reduction in revenue requirements from tax reform, based on test-year projections, which is higher than the actual second quarter tax savings.





_________________
Note:  Amounts indicated as after-tax in this earnings release are based upon adjusting items using the current year composite statutory tax rates of 25.75% for the utilities and 26.79% for the bank.
1 Hawaiian Electric Company, unless otherwise defined, refers to the three utilities, Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. on Oahu, Maui Electric Company, Limited for Maui County, and Hawaii Electric Light Company, Inc. on Hawaii Island.

2 Excludes net income neutral expenses covered by surcharges or by third parties. See the “Explanation of HEI’s Use of Certain Unaudited Non-GAAP Measures” and the related reconciliation accompanying this release.

AMERICAN SAVINGS BANK EARNINGS
American Savings Bank’s (American) second quarter of 2018 net income was $20.6 million compared to $19.0 million in the first, or linked, quarter and $16.7 million in the prior year quarter.
Compared to the linked quarter of 2018, the $1.6 million net income increase in the second quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by higher net interest income, which was mainly due to good deposit growth that funded commercial and home equity lines of credit loan portfolio growth and lower provision for loan losses.
Compared to the second quarter of 2017, the $3.8 million higher net income in the second quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by higher net interest income partially offset by lower noninterest income. Tax expense was approximately $2 million lower in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the second quarter of 2017, primarily due to the benefits of the lower federal corporate tax rate from tax reform.
Total loans were $4.8 billion at June 30, 2018, up $104 million or 4.4% annualized from December 31, 2017, driven mainly by increases in commercial and commercial real estate loans of $91 million.
Total deposits were $6.1 billion at June 30, 2018, an increase of $226 million or 7.7% annualized from December 31, 2017, including $100 million in repurchase agreements that were transferred into deposit accounts. Excluding such transfer, total deposits increased by 4.2% annualized. Cost of funds was 0.24% for the second quarter of 2018, up 1 basis point from the linked quarter and up 3 basis points from the prior year quarter.
American’s return on average equity3 for the second quarter of 2018 was 13.56%, compared to 12.58% in the linked quarter and 11.25% in the second quarter of 2017. Return on average assets was 1.20% for the second quarter of 2018, compared to 1.12% in the linked quarter and 1.02% in the same quarter last year.
Please refer to American’s news release issued on July 30, 2018 for additional information on American.

HOLDING AND OTHER COMPANIES
The holding and other companies’ net loss was $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $3.7 million in the prior year quarter. The higher net loss was primarily driven by approximately $1 million lower tax benefits on expenses resulting from a lower corporate federal tax rate and higher interest expense due to higher interest rates and additional debt related to Pacific Current investments, partially offset by income related to Pacific Current’s investment in Hamakua Energy.

The Statements of Income Data reflects the retrospective application of ASU No. 2017-07, “Compensation-Retirement Benefits (Topic 715): Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost,” which was adopted in first quarter 2018. Nonservice cost was reclassified from “Compensation and employee benefits” to “Other expense.”
This information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto in HEI filings with the SEC.

EXPLANATION OF HEI’S USE OF CERTAIN UNAUDITED NON-GAAP MEASURES
HEI and Hawaiian Electric Company management use certain non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of HEI and the utility. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide useful information and are a better indicator of the companies’ core operating activities than the corresponding GAAP measures given the non-recurring nature of certain items. Non-GAAP core measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The accompanying tables provide the return on average common equity (ROACE) and adjusted non-GAAP core ROACE for HEI and the utility.
The reconciling adjustments from GAAP earnings to core earnings used in the calculation of the twelve months ended June 30, 2017 ROACE include income, costs and associated taxes related to the terminated merger between HEI and NextEra Energy, Inc. For more information on the transactions, see HEI’s Form 8-K filed on July 18, 2016, and HEI’s Form 8-K filed on July 19, 2016. The reconciling adjustments from GAAP earnings to core earnings used in the calculation of the twelve months ended June 30, 2018 ROACE exclude the impact of the federal tax reform act recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017 due to the adjustment of deferred tax balances and the $1,000 employee bonuses paid by the bank related to federal tax reform. Management does not consider these items to be representative of the company’s fundamental core earnings and has shown the non-GAAP (core) ROACE in order to provide better comparability between periods.
The accompanying table also provides the calculation of utility GAAP other operation and maintenance (O&M) expense adjusted for “O&M-related net income neutral items,” which are O&M expenses covered by specific surcharges or by third parties. These “O&M-related net income neutral items” are grossed-up in revenue and expense and do not impact net income.
