American Water Works Company, Inc. (NYSE:AWK) today reported results
for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

"American Water employees delivered a strong second quarter with 2018
adjusted earnings per share up 13.7 percent compared to last year. Our
second quarter results demonstrate that we continue to grow our business
through the consistent execution of our strategies," said Susan Story,
president and chief executive officer of American Water.

"We saw strong growth in both our Regulated and Market-Based Businesses
in the second quarter. We invested a total of $1.1 billion, with $713
million invested in our Regulated Businesses to ensure safe and reliable
service, and $363 million to close on the Pivotal Home Solutions
addition to our legacy Homeowner Services Group in our Market-Based
Businesses.

"Our Regulated Businesses added 10,300 customers to date through closed
acquisitions and organic growth. We also recently announced an agreement
to acquire the Exeter Township Wastewater System in Pennsylvania with
9,000 customer connections, as well as the Roxbury Water System in New
Jersey with 3,900 customer connections. We look forward to welcoming and
serving these new customers in the coming months. Notably, we received
the final approval of our global settlement for Freedom Industries by
the U.S. District Court, and settled with our final insurance carrier.

"In addition to the acquisition of Pivotal Home Solutions, we announced
on July 5 that we had entered into an agreement for the majority of our
Contract Services Group to be sold to Veolia North America. We have
already closed on 17 of the 23 contracts, with the remainder to close by
the end of the year. These efforts reflect the continued optimization of
our Market-Based Businesses segment.

"We remain on track to meet our long term compound annual earnings
growth outlook in the top half of the 7-10 percent range and we are
affirming our 2018 earnings guidance to a non-GAAP range of
$3.22 to $3.32 per diluted share," added Story.

Consolidated Results

The Company's three and six months ended results are included in the
table below.

   
For the Three Months Ended June 30, For the Six Months Ended June 30,
2018   2017 2018   2017
Diluted earnings per share (GAAP):
Net income attributable to common stockholders $ 0.91 $ 0.73 $ 1.50 $ 1.26
 
Non-GAAP adjustment:
Impact of Freedom Industries settlement activities (0.11 ) (0.11 )
Income tax impact 0.03     0.03  
Total net non-GAAP adjustment (0.08 )   (0.08 )
       
Adjusted diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP) $ 0.83   $ 0.73   $ 1.42   $ 1.26
 

In the second quarter 2018, the global settlement related to the Freedom
Industries chemical spill class action litigation in West Virginia
received final court approval and the Company settled with its remaining
general liability insurance carrier relating to this matter resulting in
a benefit to the Company of $20 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.
Consistent with all other elements of the global settlement, this
benefit is shown as a non-GAAP adjustment.

Adjusted earnings were $0.83 per diluted share (a non-GAAP measure) for
the second quarter 2018, an increase of $0.10 per diluted share, or 13.7
percent, over the same period in 2017. This increase was from growth in
our Regulated and Market-Based Businesses. Net income from the Regulated
Businesses increased $0.08 per diluted share or 10.3 percent from
increases in authorized revenue driven by capital investments,
acquisitions and organic growth. Net income from the Market-Based
Businesses increased $0.02 per diluted share, primarily from stronger
results in the Homeowner Services Group.

For the first six months of 2018, adjusted earnings were $1.42 per
diluted share, an increase of $0.16 per diluted share, or 12.7 percent,
over the same period in 2017. Net income from the Regulated Businesses
increased $0.13 per diluted share or 9.9 percent from increases in
authorized revenue driven by capital investments, acquisitions and
organic growth. Net income from the Market-Based Businesses increased
$0.05 per diluted share, primarily from stronger results in the
Homeowner Services Group and lower taxes and the parent company
decreased $0.02 primarily from the lower tax shield on interest expense.

For the first six months of 2018, the company made capital investments
of approximately $1.1 billion, including $713 million dedicated
primarily to improving infrastructure in the Regulated Businesses, $363
million for the Pivotal acquisition, and $14 million for regulated
acquisitions. American Water plans to invest in the range of $2.0
billion to $2.1 billion, including the acquisition of Pivotal Home
Solutions ("Pivotal"), across its footprint in 2018.

Regulated Businesses

   
For the Three Months Ended June 30, For the Six Months Ended June 30,
2018   2017 2018   2017
Net income (GAAP) $ 167 $ 140 $ 271 $ 234
Non-GAAP adjustment:
Impact of Freedom Industries settlement activities (20 ) (20 )
Income tax impact 5     5  
Net non-GAAP adjustment (15 )   (15 )
       
Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) $ 152   $ 140   $ 256   $ 234
 

In the second quarter of 2018, GAAP net income in the Regulated
Businesses was $167 million, compared to $140 million for the same
period in 2017.

The 2018 GAAP net income includes an after-tax benefit of $15 million
from the insurance settlement related to the Freedom Industries chemical
spill discussed above and is reflected as a non-GAAP adjustment.

In the second quarter of 2018, adjusted net income in the Regulated
Businesses was $152 million, compared to $140 million for the same
period in 2017. Regulated revenue decreased approximately $2 million
driven by a $35 million increase from additional authorized revenue and
surcharges to support infrastructure investments, acquisitions, and
organic growth that was more than offset by the $38 million impact of
the lower federal tax rate under the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (the "TCJA")
expected to benefit customers. The company had higher production expense
of $3 million due mainly to purchased water price and usage increases in
our California subsidiary and higher O&M expense of $8 million to
support regulated growth. In addition, depreciation expense increased $4
million from infrastructure investment growth. Income taxes were lower
by $31 million from the lower federal tax rate under the TCJA.

For the first six months of 2018, adjusted net income in the Regulated
Businesses was $256 million, compared to $234 million for the same
period in 2017. Regulated revenue increased $5 million driven by a $75
million increase from additional authorized revenue and surcharges to
support infrastructure investments, acquisitions, and organic growth;
largely offset by $70 million resulting from the lower federal tax rate
under the TCJA that is expected to benefit customers. The Company had
higher production expense of $9 million due mainly to purchased water
price and usage increases in our California subsidiary and O&M increased
$23 million to support regulated acquisition and other growth, as well
as higher main breaks from the harsh frigid weather conditions across
several regulated states during the first quarter of 2018. In addition,
depreciation expense increased $9 million from infrastructure investment
growth. Income taxes were lower by $53 million as a result of the lower
federal tax rate under the TCJA.

Through June 30, 2018, the company received additional annualized
revenues of approximately $95 million from general rate cases and
approximately $15 million from infrastructure surcharges. The company is
awaiting final orders for general rate cases in four states and filed
infrastructure surcharge in one, for a total annualized revenue request
of approximately $169 million, adjusted for certain impacts of the TCJA.
The extent to which requested rate increases will be granted by the
applicable regulatory agencies will vary.

For the 12-month period ended June 30, 2018, the company's adjusted
regulated O&M efficiency ratio (a non-GAAP financial measure) improved
to 35.3 percent, compared to 36.3 percent for the 12-month period ended
June 30, 2017. For period-to-period comparability purposes, both of
these ratios present the estimated impact of the TCJA on operating
revenues for the Regulated Businesses on a pro forma basis, as if the
lower federal corporate income tax rate had been in effect for these
periods. By reducing O&M expense as a proportion of revenue, American
Water is able to make investments in needed capital improvements without
significantly impacting customer bills.

Market-Based Businesses

On June 4, 2018, American Water completed the acquisition of Pivotal,
for $363 million, including estimated working capital.

In the second quarter of 2018, net income in the Market-Based Businesses
was $13 million, compared to $9 million for the same period in 2017. The
increase was primarily driven by growth in the Homeowner Services Group
through customer growth and cost management and the impact of the lower
federal income tax rate under the TCJA.

For the first six months of 2018, net income in the Market-Based
Businesses was $25 million, compared to $15 million for the same period
in 2017. The increase was primarily driven by growth in the Homeowner
Services Group through customer growth and cost management and the
impact of the lower federal income tax rate under the TCJA.

On July 5, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement for the sale of
the majority of our Contract Services Group to subsidiaries of Veolia
Environment for $27 million. The sale agreement includes the transfer of
23 of our Contract Services Group's 33 O&M contracts, of which 17 have
closed and the remainder are expected to close by year end.

Dividends

On July 27, 2018, American Water's board of directors declared a
quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.455 per share of common stock,
payable on September 4, 2018, to all stockholders of record as of
August 10, 2018.

2018 Earnings Guidance

American Water is providing its 2018 earnings guidance GAAP range of
$3.30 - $3.40 per diluted share , which includes an $0.08 per diluted
share benefit of the company's settlement with its general liability
insurance carrier relating the Freedom Industries chemical spill class
action litigation in West Virginia. Excluding this benefit, the company
affirms its 2018 earnings guidance to a non-GAAP range of $3.22 - $3.32
per diluted share. The company's earnings forecasts are subject to
numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, those
described under "Forward-Looking Statements" below and under "Risk
Factors" in its annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes presentations of adjusted net income, as
well as adjusted earnings per diluted share both as historical financial
information and as earnings guidance ("Adjusted EPS"). These items
constitute "non-GAAP financial measures" under SEC rules. These non-GAAP
financial measures are derived from American Water's consolidated
financial information but are not presented in its financial statements
prepared in accordance with GAAP. Each of adjusted net income and
Adjusted EPS is defined as GAAP net income and earnings per diluted
common share, respectively, excluding the impact in the second quarter
of 2018 of the insurance settlement related to the Freedom Industries
chemical spill. These non-GAAP financial measures supplement the
company's GAAP disclosures and should not be considered as an
alternative to the GAAP measure.

Management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial
measures are useful to American Water's investors because they provide
an indication of its baseline performance excluding items that are not
considered by management to be reflective of ongoing operating results.
Although management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to
evaluate American Water's results of operations, management does not
intend results excluding the adjustment to represent results as defined
by GAAP, and the reader should not consider them as indicators of
performance. The company's definition of adjusted net income or Adjusted
EPS may not be comparable to the same or similar measures used by other
companies, and, accordingly, these non-GAAP financial measures may have
significant limitations on their use.

Set forth in this release is a table that reconciles adjusted net
income, as well as Adjusted EPS, both for historical and guidance
purposes, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

This press release also includes a presentation of adjusted Regulated
O&M efficiency ratio, which, in addition to the pro forma adjustment for
the impact of the TCJA, excludes from its calculation estimated
purchased water revenues and purchased water expenses, the impact of
certain Freedom Industries, Inc. chemical spill settlement activities
recognized in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and the allocable portion of non-O&M
support services costs, mainly depreciation and general taxes. This item
constitutes a "non-GAAP financial measure" under SEC rules. This item is
derived from American Water's consolidated financial information but is
not presented in its financial statements prepared in accordance with
GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure supplements and should be read in
conjunction with the company's GAAP disclosures and should not be
considered as an alternative to any GAAP measure.

Management believes that the presentation of this measure is useful to
investors because it provides a means of evaluating the company's
operating performance without giving effect to items that are not
reflective of management's ability to increase efficiency of the
company's regulated operations. In preparing operating plans, budgets
and forecasts, and in assessing historical performance, management
relies, in part, on trends in the company's historical results,
exclusive of estimated revenues and expenses related to purchased water,
the Freedom Industries chemical spill settlement activities and the
allocable portion of non-O&M support services costs. The company's
definition of this metric may not be comparable to the same or similar
measures used by other companies, and, accordingly, this non-GAAP
financial measure may have significant limitations on its use.

Set forth in this release is a table that reconciles each of the
components used to calculate adjusted O&M efficiency ratio to the most
directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
