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 Urges Safety When Working Around Overhead Electric Lines

Jun 04, 2020

JACKSON, Mich., June 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As warmer summer weather settles into Michigan, Consumers Energy is reminding anyone performing aerial work to look up and avoid overhead electric lines.

"Safety is the single most important element of any project and working around electric lines is no exception. We urge anyone performing overhead work to make it your top priority to look up and note the location of overhead electric lines so you can take precautions to avoid them," said Guy Packard, vice president of electric operations for Consumers Energy.

Summer months typically include outdoor projects such as painting, building and pruning trees, picking fruit and farming that involve the use of ladders, scaffolding and power equipment. Activities such as moving RVs and boats with raised masts are also common. All require you to know where overhead electric lines are so you can avoid them.

Packard offered the following five tips to help stay safe around overhead electric lines:

  1. Survey your job site every day before work begins to locate electric lines, poles and guy wires. Be alert for lines hidden by trees or buildings. If you have concerns about electric line clearance, call Consumers Energy at 800-477-5050 (residential customers) or 800-805-0490 (business customers).
  2. Have an emergency plan in place before beginning work near electric lines.
  3. Michigan safety standards require anyone working near power lines to stay at least 10 feet away, including any tools or equipment you are using. Metal ladders, cranes and some other specialized equipment require 20 feet of clearance. Be aware that even nonmetallic tools can conduct electricity.
  4. Trees can conduct electric current. Before moving a tree under a power line, look up and determine the overhead clearance from the top of the tree. Keep the right distance away.
  5. Clearly mark boundaries with tape, signs, or barricades to keep workers and equipment the required distance away. Use a spotter if needed.

Michigan farmers are also reminded to look up when using agricultural equipment to avoid electric lines. Farmers often work dawn to dusk planting and harvesting crops and are always urged to remain vigilant to locations of overhead electric lines.

In the event a vehicle or riding equipment contacts an electric line:

  • Stay in the vehicle until help arrives, if it is safe to do so.
  • If you must exit the vehicle, jump off and land with feet together without touching the ground and the vehicle at the same time.
  • Shuffle at least 20 feet away with feet together.
  • Call Consumers Energy immediately to report the issue.

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.
