Core Earnings Summary

The increase in core earnings in the first quarter was largely driven by the implementation of rates approved in Southern California Edison's (SCE) 2012 General Rate Case (GRC), which was approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in November 2012.

"We're off to a strong start in the first quarter, with earnings consistent with our full-year guidance," said Ted Craver, chairman and chief executive officer of Edison International. "Southern California Edison continues to make substantial investments in infrastructure improvements supporting state policy objectives."

First Quarter Earnings Detail

SCE's first quarter 2013 basic and core earnings were $0.78 per share compared to $0.56 per share in the first quarter of 2012. The core earnings increase was primarily due to the delay in receiving SCE's 2012 General Rate Case, lower operating expenses, largely due to timing, and tax benefits from incremental repair deductions.
