ROSEMEAD, Calif., April 30, 2024 — Edison International (NYSE: EIX) today reported a first-quarter net loss of $11 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to net income of $310 million, or $0.81 per share, in the first quarter of last year. As adjusted, first-quarter core earnings were $438 million, or $1.13 per share, compared to core earnings of $416 million, or $1.09 per share, in the first quarter of last year.

Southern California Edison’s first-quarter 2024 core earnings per share (EPS) increased year over year, primarily due to higher revenue authorized in Track 4 of SCE’s 2021 General Rate Case and an increase in the authorized rate of return resulting from the cost of capital adjustment mechanism. This was partially offset by higher interest expense.

Edison International Parent and Other’s first-quarter 2024 core loss per share was in line with the same period in the prior year.

“We are pleased with our start to the year and are confident in affirming our 2024 core EPS guidance range,” said Pedro J. Pizarro, president and CEO of Edison International. “We also remain confident in delivering on our long-term EPS growth targets. Our conviction remains grounded in the drivers that continue to support our outlook.”

As described below, as a result of management's first-quarter review of loss estimates for the 2017/2018 Wildfire/Mudslide Events, a $490 million increase in estimated losses was recorded. The increase was primarily driven by information obtained during the quarter related to the Woolsey Fire mediation program and from settling claims through the quarter.

Pizarro noted, “With wildfires now a national issue, litigation outcomes outside of California are impacting the costs to resolve claims everywhere. SCE intends to seek full recovery of all eligible costs and we remain confident about the case SCE has made in TKM and will make for Woolsey. I reiterate that we strongly believe that cost recovery is warranted and in the public interest, and we conservatively have not reflected this significant potential in our financial projections.”

Revision to Best Estimate of Losses for 2017/2018 Wildfire/Mudslide Events

Management’s first-quarter 2024 review of its loss estimates for remaining alleged and potential claims related to the 2017/2018 Wildfire/Mudslide Events included a review of information received during the quarter about outstanding claims, including demands from most of the individual plaintiffs who have opted into the Woolsey Fire mediation program and from settling claims through the quarter. As a result of management's review, a $490 million increase in estimated losses for the 2017/2018 Wildfire/Mudslide Events as of March 31, 2024, was recorded. SCE recorded expected recoveries through Federal Energy Regulatory Commission electric rates of $27 million against the charge. The resulting net charge to earnings was $463 million ($333 million after-tax).

The increase was primarily driven by information obtained during the quarter related to the Woolsey Fire mediation program, in which plaintiffs who had previously opted-in to the program were required to submit their demands by a deadline in February 2024. While a limited number of plaintiffs received extensions, the demands received prior to the deadline revealed that more plaintiffs intend to continue to pursue claims than expected and that plaintiffs are seeking higher damages than expected. Additionally, settlement outcomes during the quarter exceeded previously estimated values. Management believes that adverse jury verdicts in wildfire litigation against utilities outside of California and increasingly negative jury sentiments in general litigation combined with the current procedural schedule in the underlying litigation proceedings have led to more plaintiffs continuing to pursue claims than expected and to plaintiffs demanding greater settlement values.
