HONOLULU - Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (NYSE - HE) (HEI) today reported 2018
year-end consolidated net income for common stock of $201.8 million and EPS of $1.85 compared to $165.3 million and EPS of $1.52 for 2017. Excluding 2017 one-time impacts from the implementation of federal tax reform, principally to adjust deferred tax assets for the lower tax rate, 2017 core net income was $179.5 million and core EPS was $1.65, and 2018 net income and EPS growth over the prior year core amounts was 12.4% and 12.1%, respectively.
For the fourth quarter of 2018, consolidated net income for common stock was $49.6 million and EPS was $0.45 compared to $32.4 million and EPS of $0.30 for the fourth quarter of 2017. Excluding the previously referenced one-time 2017 federal tax reform impacts, core net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $46.5 million and core EPS was $0.43, and fourth quarter 2018 net income and EPS growth over the fourth quarter 2017 core amounts was 6.7% and 4.7%, respectively.
“We are making substantial progress across HEI, as demonstrated by our strong 2018 financial, operational and environmental results. We delivered solid earnings growth over the prior year, with particularly strong results from American Savings Bank. In light of our 2018 earnings and our future prospects, our Board of Directors yesterday approved a 3% dividend increase, enhancing our record of uninterrupted dividends since 1901,” said Constance H. Lau, President and CEO of HEI.
“Our electric company generated 27% of its sales from renewable energy, despite the lava-related shutdown of a third-party owned geothermal plant in 2018, and invested more than $400 million to strengthen the resilience of our electric systems across the islands we serve. Hawaiian Electric continues to lead the nation in the efficient integration of renewable resources, and in 2018 we were again number one in the nation in rooftop solar adoption.”

“American Savings Bank delivered record earnings in 2018, and finished the year with a very strong fourth quarter. The bank is well positioned to continue to grow in 2019 and achieve even greater
efficiency as it brings its team together into its new, state-of-the-art campus and works continually to deliver value to customers, our consolidated company and shareholders,” said Lau.

HAWAIIAN ELECTRIC
Full Year Results:
Hawaiian Electric’s full-year 2018 net income was $143.7 million, compared to $120.0 million in 2017. The $23.7 million increase in reported net income over the prior year was primarily driven by the following after-tax items:
Resetting of base rates through the rate case cycle, resulting in a net income impact of $31 million, and recovery under the rate adjustment mechanism (RAM) and major projects interim recovery (MPIR) mechanisms, resulting in $26 million of net income impact;
$5 million in net income from the previously announced pole ownership agreement with Hawaiian Telcom, which resulted in attachment fees and a one-time impact from the release of reserves due to the settlement of receivables from Hawaiian Telcom; the arrangement will reduce the cost of this critical infrastructure to our customers by bringing in third party revenues;
$9 million lower 2017 net income reflecting the aforementioned one-time 2017 impact of federal tax reform; and
$2 million higher net income from net favorable tax adjustments, largely related to favorable adjustments made in connection with filing of the 2017 tax return, partially offset by the difference between the reduction to revenue requirements to return tax reform benefits to customers and actual 2018 tax savings.
These items were partially offset by the following after-tax items:
$37 million higher operations and maintenance (O&M) expenses3 compared to 2017, primarily due to the reset of pension costs for the first time in six years as part of rate case decisions, the write-off of costs incurred during the merger time period related to Smart Grid planning and the

evaluation of importing LNG, higher consultant costs related to implementation of the new enterprise resource system, higher costs for preventative maintenance on underground circuits to ensure reliability, generating station operation and maintenance (including $2 million net income impact from the newly commissioned Schofield Generating Station), and workers' compensation claims;
$8 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
$3 million higher interest expense from higher interest rates and increased borrowings to fund utility capital investments.
Fourth Quarter Results:
Fourth quarter 2018 net income of $35 million was $10 million higher than the fourth quarter of 2017, primarily driven by a $15 million (post-tax) net revenue increase from rate relief and recovery through the RAM and MPIR mechanisms, the previously mentioned impact from the pole ownership agreement with Hawaiian Telcom (the impacts of which were experienced in the fourth quarter), and lower fourth quarter 2017 earnings due to the aforementioned $9 million one-time impact of federal tax reform. These amounts were partially offset by higher depreciation and O&M impacts totaling $3 million and $13 million post-tax, respectively. The higher O&M expenses included a $2 million post-tax write off of the previously mentioned LNG expenses and a $5 million impact from above-described pension reset. Lower allowance for funds used during construction also partially offset net income by $1 million.

AMERICAN SAVINGS BANK
Full Year Results:
American’s full-year 2018 net income was $82.5 million compared to $67.0 million in 2017. The 23% increase from the prior year resulted from $18.8 million higher net interest income, driven primarily by growth in interest earning assets and an improved interest rate environment. This was partially offset by $3.8 million higher provision for loan losses, as well as lower noninterest income. While noninterest income for the year was $5.5 million lower than 2017, $4.2 million of such amount resulted from the reclassification of $4.2 million of debit card expenses in 2018 from noninterest expense to noninterest income due to a new accounting standard and thus did not impact net income.

Total deposits were $6.2 billion at December 31, 2018, an increase of 4.6% from December 31, 2017. The average cost of funds was 0.25% for the full year 2018, up 4 basis points from the prior year.
Overall, American’s return on average equity4 for the full year increased to 13.5% compared to 11.2% in 2017, and the return on average assets for the full year grew to 1.20% in 2018 compared to 1.02% in 2017.

Fourth Quarter Results:
Fourth quarter of 2018 net income of $21.8 million was $0.5 million higher than the third, or linked quarter and $4.9 million higher than the fourth quarter of 2017. Compared to the linked quarter of 2018, the $0.5 million net income increase was primarily driven by $2.3 million (pre-tax) higher net interest income primarily due to higher yields on interest earning assets, and a lower provision for loan losses principally related to the release of reserves in the commercial and commercial real estate loan portfolios due to improved credit quality and the payoff of a criticized commercial real estate construction loan. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, the $4.9 million higher net income in the fourth quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by $6.4 million (pre-tax) higher net interest income mainly due to higher yields and growth in earning assets.
American’s fourth quarter of 2018 return on average equity was 14.1%, compared to 13.8% in the linked quarter and 11.1% in the fourth quarter of 2017. Return on average assets was 1.25% for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 1.22% in the linked quarter and 1.01% in the same quarter last year.
Please refer to American’s news release issued on January 30, 2019 for additional information.

HOLDING AND OTHER COMPANIES
The holding and other companies’ net loss was $24.4 million in 2018 compared to $21.7 million in 2017. The $21.7 million net loss for 2017 included a $5.7 million one-time charge to adjust deferred tax assets due to federal tax reform. The higher 2018 net loss for the year was primarily driven by lower tax benefits on expenses and other tax impacts due to tax reform and higher interest and compensation expenses, partially offset by lower professional costs and earnings contributions from Pacific Current. Fourth quarter net losses were $2.3 million lower than the prior year quarter, at $7.5 million in 2018

compared to $9.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The fourth quarter 2017 net loss included the aforementioned $5.7 million one-time charge related to tax reform. Excluding the 2017 one-time charge, the fourth quarter of 2018 net loss was $3.5 million greater than the fourth quarter of 2017, due largely to the same factors cited for the full year comparison.

BOARD DECLARES INCREASE IN QUARTERLY DIVIDEND
On February 14, 2019, the Board of Directors increased HEI’s quarterly cash dividend to $0.32 per share from the previous $0.31 per share. The dividend is payable on March 13, 2019, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 26, 2019 (ex-dividend date is February 25, 2019). The dividend is equivalent to an annual rate of $1.28 per share. This dividend increase reflects HEI’s strong 2018 performance and solid foundation for future growth at both our bank and utility subsidiaries.
HEI has paid dividends on an uninterrupted basis since 1901. At the indicated annual dividend rate and the closing price per share on February 14, 2019 of $37.68, HEI’s dividend yield is 3.4%.

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 given the non-recurring nature of certain items. Core earnings and other financial measures as presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The accompanying tables provide a reconciliation of reported GAAP1 earnings to non-GAAP core earnings and the adjusted return on average common equity (ROACE) for HEI and the utility.
The reconciling adjustments from GAAP earnings to core earnings exclude the 2017 impact of the federal tax reform act due to the adjustment of the 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. Management has shown adjusted non-GAAP (core) net income, adjusted non-GAAP (core) diluted earnings per common share and adjusted non-GAAP (core) ROACE in order to provide better comparability of core net income, EPS and ROACE 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.
