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 Funds Habitat Improvement Project To Raise More Walleye for Michigan Anglers

Jun 17, 2019
Three Additional Michigan Projects Also Funded in 2019

MUSKEGON, Mich., June 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Upgrades funded by Consumers Energy will help the Muskegon River Walleye Pond produce 300,000 more walleye yearly for anglers and significantly reduce expenses to operate the Michigan Department of Natural Resources facility.

A multi-year $140,607 grant from the Habitat Improvement Account (HIA) has been used to install a permanent power source and provide three new pumps at the pond where walleye fingerlings are reared for stocking in the Muskegon River and other Michigan waters.

"It's exciting to see how these funds are applied and to know they help increase recreational opportunities and enrich outdoor experiences for Michigan residents and visitors," said William Schoenlein, Consumers Energy's manager of hydro and renewable generation.

Having a permanent electricity source and reliable pumps will allow precise, automatic water level control at the 15-acre pond located in the Muskegon State Game Area. A high water level is optimum during the rearing period for the health of the young walleye. Keeping the water level low during the non-rearing period helps control vegetation and unintended species such as crayfish and frogs from taking up residence which reduces the number of walleye fry that can grow in the pond.

Also as a result of the project, MDNR personnel will save traveling from Plainwell, Mich. offices to fuel the World War II vintage diesel generator and keep the pumps running.

The MDNR estimates the upgrades will increase walleye fingerling production by 300,000 and save 108 hours of labor costs per year.

"These upgrades are a real boom to Michigan anglers, as they will help make more walleye available for stocking," said Ed Pearce, fisheries technician supervisor with the MDNR. "As a bonus, the work will result in significant savings in our costs to operate the Muskegon River Walleye Pond."

Historically, the number of walleye reared has varied based on the amount of maintenance performed at the Muskegon River Walleye Pond. The number of walleye fingerlings reared there dropped from an average of 700,000 per year from 1997- 2001 to a low of 124,800 in 2014, due to reduced staffing and mechanical issues with the pump system.

Crews installed a mile of electric lines underground to the Muskegon River Walleye Pond in November, 2018. The new pumps are expected to be installed and controlling water levels at the pond this summer. 

Consumers Energy funds the HIA, which is administered by the MDNR, as part of its license agreement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to operate its 11 hydro generating facilities on the Au Sable, Manistee and Muskegon rivers. When deciding which initiatives receive funding from the HIA, a MDNR fisheries management team reviews project proposals to determine the positive impact a project may produce.

Since being implemented into the hydro project licenses in 1994, Consumers Energy has contributed more than $9 million to the account.

Three other projects totaling $421,019 were funded this year through the program for fisheries research, habitat improvement and stream restoration:

  • $88,070 to the Manistee River Restoration Committee to conduct a survey on the Manistee River between M-72 and the Yellow Trees Landing to prioritize future erosion control projects.
  • $147,906 to Huron Pines organization to remove small dams and replace culverts from Au Sable River tributaries in Oscoda County to allow fish to access important spawning and winter cover.
  • $185,043 to a joint venture among the MDNR, US Forest Service, and Trout Unlimited for habitat improvement and erosion control downstream from Tippy Dam on the Manistee River.
  • $30,490 to the Mason-Griffith Founders Chapter of Trout Unlimited for evaluation, planning and prioritization of future stream habitat improvements on the Au Sable and Manistee rivers.

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.
