HEI REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2018 EARNINGS

3Q2018 Diluted Earnings per Share (EPS) of $0.60
Utility Advances Renewable Transition
Bank Records Strong Earnings

HONOLULU, Nov. 7, 2018 - Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (NYSE - HE) (HEI) today reported consolidated net income for common stock for the third quarter of 2018 of $65.9 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.60 compared to $60.1 million and EPS of $0.55 for the third quarter of 2017.
“We are pleased to report solid third quarter results from both our utility and bank and are excited about the progress we’re making on our strategies across the company,” said Constance H. Lau, president and CEO of HEI.
“Our utilities are quickly advancing Hawaii’s clean energy transition now that key foundational frameworks are in place, including for 100% renewable power and grid modernization. For example, we’re negotiating contracts for seven solar-plus-storage projects across our three utilities to add 260 megawatts of solar and more than a gigawatt-hour of storage in the state’s largest-ever renewable energy procurement. As we advance toward 100% clean energy, we’re focused on ensuring we all move forward together, and that all customers have access to affordable, reliable renewable energy.”
“Our bank delivered strong financial performance in the third quarter, expanding its margin and improving profitability, while at the same time continuing its focus on making banking easier for customers and improving operational efficiency."

HAWAIIAN ELECTRIC COMPANY EARNINGS
Hawaiian Electric Company’s1 net income for the third quarter of 2018 was $49.7 million compared to $47.5 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of $2.2 million primarily driven by the following after-tax items:
$12 million higher revenues from rate adjustment mechanism (RAM) revenues, major projects interim recovery (MPIR) revenues for the Schofield Generating Station that was completed in June and rate relief from the interim decision in Maui Electric’s 2018 test year rate case and final decisions in Hawaiian Electric’s 2017 and Hawaii Electric Light’s 2016 test year rate cases;
$5 million higher net income from net favorable tax adjustments primarily related to differences between the 2017 year-end tax accrual and the filing of the 2017 tax return (differences are largely related to the acceleration of the deduction of 2018 pension contributions into the 2017 tax year); and
$1 million higher net income for the quarter, representing the difference between actual third quarter tax savings and the reduction in revenue requirement from tax reform, which was based on test-year projections. Year to date, the reduction in revenue requirement from tax reform was approximately $3 million higher than actual tax savings.
These items were partially offset by the following after-tax items:
$11 million higher O&M expenses2 compared to 2017, primarily due to the reset of pension costs as part of rate case decisions, and higher costs for underground circuit repair work, generating station operation and maintenance, and workers’ compensation claims;
$2 million higher depreciation expense as a result of increasing investments for the integration of more renewable energy, improved reliability and greater system efficiency;
$2 million lower allowance for funds used during construction; and
$1 million higher interest expense from higher interest rates and increased borrowings.
AMERICAN SAVINGS BANK EARNINGS
American Savings Bank’s (American) third quarter of 2018 net income was $21.2 million compared to $20.6 million in the second, or linked, quarter and $17.6 million in the prior year quarter.
_________________

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.

Compared to the linked quarter of 2018, the $0.7 million net income increase in the third quarter was primarily driven by higher net interest income, mainly due to higher yields on interest earning assets, higher bank-owned life insurance income and lower noninterest expense, which offset higher provision expense that was primarily due to additional loan loss reserves for the consumer loan portfolio.
Compared to the third quarter of 2017, the $3.6 million higher net income in the third quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by higher net interest income and $3.6 million lower income tax expense in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the third quarter of 2017, primarily due to the benefits of the lower federal corporate tax rate from tax reform. These items were partially offset by higher provision
for loan losses due to increased reserves for loan growth and additional loan loss reserves for the consumer loan portfolio.
Total loans were $4.8 billion at September 30, 2018, up $83 million or 2.4% annualized from December 31, 2017, driven mainly by increases in home equity lines of credit and commercial and consumer loans of $90 million.
Total deposits were $6.1 billion at September 30, 2018, an increase of $240 million or 5.4% annualized from December 31, 2017, including $100 million in repurchase agreements that were transferred into deposit accounts. Excluding such transfer, total deposits increased by 3.1% annualized. Cost of funds was 26 basis points for the third quarter of 2018, up 2 basis points from the linked quarter and up 6 basis points from the prior year quarter.
American’s return on average equity3 for the third quarter of 2018 was 13.80%, compared to 13.56% in the linked quarter and 11.64% in the third quarter of 2017. Return on average assets was 1.22% for the third quarter of 2018, compared to 1.20% in the linked quarter and 1.07% in the same quarter last year.
Please refer to American’s news release issued on October 30, 2018 for additional information on American.
HOLDING AND OTHER COMPANIES
The holding and other companies’ net loss was $5.0 million in both the third quarter of 2018 and the prior year quarter.

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 the first quarter of 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 September 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 September 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.
