Non-GAAP Information

In addition to disclosing results determined in accordance with GAAP, CMS may also disclose certain non-GAAP and pro forma non-GAAP results of operations, including net income, earnings per share, and operating income that make certain adjustments or exclude certain charges and gains that are outlined in the schedules included in this website. CMS provides historical financial results on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. Management views adjusted earnings as a key measure of the company’s present operating financial performance and uses adjusted earnings for external communications with analysts and investors. Internally, the company uses adjusted earnings to measure and assess performance. Adjustments could include items such as discontinued operations, asset sales, impairments, restructuring costs, regulatory items from prior years, or other items. Because the company is not able to estimate the impact of specific line items, which have the potential to significantly impact, favorably or unfavorably, the company’s reported earnings in future periods, the company is not providing reported earnings guidance nor is it providing a reconciliation for the comparable future period earnings.

CMS and Virtua also take no responsibility for third party pricing data provided for informational purposes and certain ratio results formulated from the provided third party pricing data. The non-GAAP information is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to non-GAAP information used by other companies. The non-GAAP information should be considered supplemental information to assist in fully understanding our business results, rather than as a substitute for the reported earnings.

A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included as a separate link and also posted on the CMS website at

Agreement Reached for Early Termination of Power Purchase Contract with Entergy's Palisades Plant

Dec 8, 2016

Savings for Consumers Energy Customers; More Investments in Clean Energy, Reliability and New Demand-Reduction Technologies

JACKSON, Mich., Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers Energy has reached agreement with Entergy Corporation for early termination of its contract to purchase power from the Palisades nuclear plant. Regulatory approval of the agreement is expected to lower customer costs by as much as $172 million, as well as drive additional investment by Consumers Energy in clean energy, reliability and customer demand-reduction technologies, leading to further customer savings.

"We have a comprehensive plan to ensure ongoing reliability and affordability for our 1.8 million electric customers," said Patti Poppe, president and chief executive officer for Consumers Energy.  That plan includes continued excellent power plant performance by Consumers Energy, robust waste-reducing energy efficiency programs, and adding more renewable energy and clean natural gas-fired generation to the company's portfolio.    

Since the power purchase contract began in 2007 as a condition of the sale of Palisades from Consumers Energy to Entergy a number of things have changed. Entergy started to reduce its merchant footprint. At the same time, market conditions have changed and less expensive alternatives are now available to provide affordable power to the region.

 Under the original 15-year power purchase agreement, Consumers Energy was scheduled to purchase almost 100 percent of the power generated by Palisades through April 2022. Consumers Energy will seek approval from the Michigan Public Service Commission for early termination of the power purchase agreement in 2018.

Entergy has announced its separate, independent decision to close its Palisades plant on October 1, 2018. Prior to that date, Consumers Energy's contract with Palisades will support electric reliability in Michigan and be available during the summer months of 2017 and 2018 when demand for electricity is higher. Separately, as part of Consumers Energy's ongoing talent recruitment efforts, it will consider potential job placements in ensuing years of up to 180 appropriately-skilled employees from Palisades into the utility's statewide workforce.

Supporting southwest Michigan during this community transition process is a key focus for Consumers Energy. Accordingly, the Consumers Energy Foundation will contribute $2 million to support economic development and community transition initiatives, consulting with the Council of Michigan Foundations and local stakeholders. Separately, Entergy is committing   $8 million, for a total of $10 million by the two companies.

"We're committed to working with State and regional organizations to ensure the ongoing economic vibrancy of southwest Michigan," said Poppe.

Consumers Energy, Michigan's largest utility, is the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS), providing natural gas and electricity to 6.7 million of the state's 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
