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

Consumers Energy Foundation Awards 2017 Apprentice Scholarships Honoring Fallen Employee

Sep 01, 2017

2 lineworkers recognized with Jeffrey Creel Scholarships at Marshall Event

MARSHALL, Mich., Sept. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Consumers Energy Foundation is assisting two men training to become utility line workers as the second-year recipients of a scholarship honoring an employee killed on the job in 2012.

The scholarship program, first announced in 2015, is in conjunction with Lansing Community College (LCC), Alpena Community College (ACC), the Michigan State Utility Workers Council and Consumers Energy. The 2017 recipients, Erric Garner of LCC and Brayden Bell of ACC, were honored Thursday at a ceremony at Consumers Energy's Marshall Training Center.

Jeffrey H. Creel, a Consumers Energy electric line worker from Bronson, was struck and killed June 22, 2012 by a passing vehicle while he investigated a downed power line near Jonesville. His death has resulted in an increased effort by his friends, family, Consumers Energy and other utility companies to educate the driving public about roadside worker safety, emphasizing the phrase "slow down and go around."

"It's imperative the next generation of lineworkers understands safety is our highest priority," said Guy Packard, Consumers Energy vice president of electric operations. "Nothing is more important than sending our employees home safely each day, and protecting the public from harm. We are honored to award these scholarships in Jeff's memory."

Packard thanked Robin Creel, Jeffrey Creel's widow, for her participation in the ceremony and for her continued support.

"Jeff worked with a lot of good people, and I pray for their safety every day," Robin Creel said. "I'm pleased this scholarship program will train future line workers to continue the important work done across Michigan."

Details of the scholarship include:

  • Students must be actively enrolled and in good academic standing in the Utility Line Worker Program at LCC or the ACC Utility Technology Program to qualify.
  • Candidates must have successfully completed all requirements and be selected for enrollment into the 10-week courses delivered at Consumers Energy's training facility in Marshall.
  • Annually, each college will select one recipient, who will receive a onetime $2,500 payment toward their educational expenses.  Bell, of Cedar Springs, recently completed the 10-week course at Marshall and has accepted a Step 1 lineworker apprentice position at Consumers Energy's Norton Shores Service Center. Garner, of Jackson, is currently enrolled in the 10-week program.

As with other industries, Consumers Energy has a veteran workforce and attracting individuals to learn a skilled trade is very important.

"This scholarship provides an opportunity for individuals to learn this essential trade, and we're pleased that Jeff's name and Consumers Energy are associated with it," said Pat Dillon, president of the Michigan State Utility Workers Council.

Consumers Energy's continued focus on roadside safety comes as the number of traffic fatalities across Michigan remains significant. In 2016, 1,064 people lost their lives in Michigan traffic crashes. So far in 2017, the number of fatalities stands at 642. Thursday's announcement serves as an important reminder of safe driving for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend, when more than 1 million drivers are expected to take to the state's highways.

The Consumers Energy Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Consumers Energy.

The foundation provides grants and mobilizes volunteers to strengthen local education, social services, the environment and community, economic and cultural development.

Michigan nonprofit organizations received more than $13.5 million in contributions in 2016 from Consumers Energy, its employees, retirees, its foundation and parent company CMS Energy.

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.
