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

Mother Nature Delivers Winter Blast; Consumers Energy Offers Tips to Stay Safe and Warm

Dec 15, 2017

JACKSON, Mich., Dec. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Now that winter weather with snow, ice and freezing temperatures has arrived across Michigan, Consumers Energy is offering tips to help residents stay safe and save energy while staying warm throughout the heating season.

"During this holiday season and throughout the winter our wish at Consumers Energy is that Michigan residents stay safe. Safety is always our top priority, so we offer some simple yet important energy tips," said Aaron Kantor, Consumers Energy's director of emergency management and public safety.

One of the most important tips is to keep natural gas and electric meters and gas furnace intake pipes free of ice and snow. If snow is allowed to build up, it can become compacted and freeze around the meter, causing damage that can interfere with its proper operation, and can affect appliances served by that meter.

  • Snow should always be removed by hand, never with a shovel, metal/wood tools or power snow removal equipment.
  • Residents with high-efficiency furnaces should make sure the intake pipes (typically two white plastic pipes coming out from the side of the home) are free from piled or drifting snow to prevent possible obstructions that could interfere with safe operation.
  • Those living in mobile/manufactured homes should safely clear away snow from rooftop chimneys, fresh air intakes and furnace exhaust pipes.


  • Safely removing snow and ice around meters, intake valves and chimneys can also help prevent carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Often called the "silent killer," carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, tasteless toxic gas that can be produced when appliances are not operating or venting properly. Keep chimneys and vent pipes free of obstructions like leaves and nests.
  • Installing a UL listed audible carbon monoxide alarm is the only way to be warned if this dangerous gas is produced. Most carbon monoxide problems occur in the winter when doors and windows are closed and furnaces are operating.
  • Never use a generator inside of your home, basement, garage or near a window.
  • Never use a stove or oven to heat your home.
  • Do not store paper and other flammable materials near your furnace or appliances.
  • When using space heaters, keep the heater away from curtains, drapes, bedspreads and other flammable materials. Always unplug the heater before you leave the home or go to bed.


  • Change your thermostat settings -- Save energy by setting your heat to a lower temperature. Use your programmable thermostat to set your heat at 68 degrees when you are home and 65 degrees when you are away for less than 5 hours. If you're going to be away for more than five hours, set the thermostat to 58 degrees.
  • Maintain your furnace: Have a professional inspect your furnace every year to be certain it is running as efficiently as possible. Also, change your furnace filter regularly.
  • Prep your windows and doors: Check for leaks in your windows and doors by feeling around for cool air. Caulk, fill, or weather-strip if necessary.
  • Pay attention to your water heater: In most homes, the water heater is the second highest energy user. Set your water heater to the lowest setting, or 120 degrees. For more savings, put a manufacturer's recommended insulation blanket around your water heater.

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