*Non-GAAP, see "Net Economic Earnings and Reconciliation to GAAP."

We reported consolidated net income of $173.6 million ($3.27 per diluted share), compared to prior year net income of $187.4 million ($3.55 per share). Current year net economic earnings (NEE) were $181.0 million ($3.42 per share), compared to $195.6 million ($3.71 per share) last year. Prior-year results reflect the impacts of the February cold weather event (Winter Storm Uri), which led to outsized performance by Gas Marketing, compared to the current-year quarter.

Gas Utility

The Gas Utility segment includes the regulated distribution operations of our five gas utilities across Alabama, Mississippi and Missouri. Gas Utility reported NEE of $169.2 million, compared to $159.7 million in the prior year. The $9.5 million increase was driven by a higher contribution margin.

Contribution margin increased $17.7 million from the prior year, reflecting new rates effective in late calendar 2021 for Spire Missouri and Spire Alabama. These positive impacts were partially offset by lower usage due to warmer weather in Spire Alabama.

Operation and maintenance (O&M) expenses of $104.2 million were comparable to a year ago. O&M costs were $4.7 million lower, after removing a $3.1 million non-service cost transfer to other income (no earnings impact) and net regulatory adjustments of $8.0 million, reflecting lower employee-related costs and bad debt expenses.

Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $7.0 million from last year, reflecting our capital investments.

Gas Marketing

The Gas Marketing segment includes the results of Spire Marketing, which provides natural gas marketing services throughout the United States. NEE, which excludes mark-to-market and other fair value adjustments, was $14.4 million, compared to $39.8 million in the prior year. The prior-year quarter results were driven by significant opportunities to optimize storage and transportation assets from Winter Storm Uri. Performance in the current-year period reflects less favorable market conditions, offset by favorable resolution of certain customer claims from the prior year.

Other

Other gas-related operations and corporate costs totaled $2.6 million this quarter, compared to $3.9 million in the prior-year quarter. The improvement reflects contributions from Spire Storage and Spire STL Pipeline.

Regulatory update

Missouri

Based on a November 2021 rate case order from the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC), Spire Missouri was required to cease capitalization of non-operational overhead costs until a MoPSC Staff audit of Spire Missouri's compliance with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Uniform System of Accounts could be completed. Spire Missouri worked with Staff to complete a study; Staff then audited the study and filed its report with the MoPSC on March 18, 2022. The report, which the MoPSC has yet to rule on, establishes new overhead capitalization rates.

On April 13, 2022, the MoPSC issued an Order Authorizing Accounting Treatment, clarifying that Spire Missouri may defer all non-operational overheads related to the rate order into a regulatory asset for review and recovery in a future rate proceeding. For fiscal 2022, amounts Spire Missouri expects to defer, in excess of the capitalization rates determined by the study and audit, are approximately $20 million, inclusive of amounts set aside in our Infrastructure System Replacement Surcharge (ISRS) case described below.

In its rate case order, the MoPSC specified that another general rate case would be the vehicle for addressing the change in capitalization policy. Consistent with that guidance, on April 1, 2022, Spire Missouri filed a new general rate case, seeking to fully recover its updated cost of service, overhead costs, updated capital investment to support the business, and to earn a reasonable rate of return.

On December 23, 2021, Spire Missouri filed a new ISRS case, seeking additional revenues for recovery of investments in infrastructure upgrades, for the period June 1 through December 31, 2021. On April 21, 2022, the MoPSC approved an $8.5 million annualized increase in ISRS revenue, effective May 7. As part of the ISRS-eligible capital, we deferred $5 million of general overhead costs pursuant to the study and audit noted above.

Spire STL Pipeline

On December 3, 2021, the FERC issued a new temporary certificate to allow Spire STL Pipeline to continue operating indefinitely while the FERC considers approval of a new permanent certificate under a court-ordered remand. As part of the remand process now underway, the FERC issued a notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for Spire STL Pipeline. Based on the FERC issuances to date, we expect the remand process to continue into early 2023.

For the first six months of fiscal 2022, we reported consolidated net income of $229.3 million ($4.28 per diluted share) compared to $276.3 million ($5.20 per share) for the prior year. NEE for the six months ended March 31, 2022 was $243.6 million ($4.56 per share), down from $272.5 million ($5.12 per share) a year ago. As noted in our second quarter results, the prior year reflected the favorable impacts of Winter Storm Uri for Gas Marketing.

Gas Utility

For the first six months of fiscal 2022, the Gas Utility segment reported NEE of $236.4 million, up slightly from a year ago, reflecting a higher contribution margin, largely offset by higher operating expenses.

Year-to-date segment contribution margin increased by $17.1 million, largely due to new rates at Spire Missouri as well as a rate adjustment for Spire Alabama. These positive impacts were partially offset by lower usage due to weather and lower off-system sales and capacity release.

O&M expenses increased by $4.5 million compared to the prior-year period. O&M expenses were $3.1 million lower after removing a $9.0 million refund related to pension expense ordered in Spire Missouri's 2018 rate case and $1.4 million in non-service cost transfer to other income. The decrease was primarily due to lower operations and employee-related costs as well as lower bad debt expense.

Depreciation and amortization rose by $13.0 million reflecting capital investment across our utilities.

Gas Marketing

NEE was $14.9 million in the first half of fiscal 2022, down from $43.1 million in the prior-year period. Last year's results benefited from very favorable market conditions created by extreme weather associated with Winter Storm Uri. Fiscal 2022 results reflect less favorable market conditions and basis differentials despite price volatility, offset by favorable resolution of certain customer claims.

Other

On an NEE basis, year-to-date other gas-related operations and corporate costs were $7.7 million, compared to $6.7 million in the prior-year period, reflecting higher corporate costs partially offset by the improved contribution from Spire Storage and Spire STL Pipeline.

Guidance and Outlook

We remain confident in our long-term ability to grow NEE per share 5-7% given our growth strategy, expectations of reasonable regulatory outcomes, and planned capital investment in infrastructure upgrades, innovation and new business.

Our targeted capital investment for the 5-year period through fiscal 2026 remains $3.1 billion, and this level of investments is anticipated to drive 7-8% rate base growth for our utilities. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2022 are now expected to be $540 million, reflecting the deferral of non-operational overhead costs for Spire Missouri into a regulatory asset.

Our fiscal 2022 NEE guidance range has been narrowed to $3.75 - $3.95 per share, reflecting the deferral of overhead costs at Spire Missouri, as discussed earlier, and our year-to-date financial performance.

Balance Sheets and Cash Flow

For the second quarter of fiscal 2022, we maintained a solid capital structure and ample liquidity. Short-term borrowings outstanding at March 31, 2022, were $607.1 million, down from $672.0 million at fiscal 2021 year-end and from $653.5 million a year ago, reflecting higher seasonal borrowing levels and deferred gas cost balances offset by the timing of long-term debt financing. We retain capacity in our revolving credit facility and related commercial paper program to meet our liquidity needs. Spire had approximately $360 million of available short-term financing at March 31, 2022.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $155.1 million for the six months ended March 31, 2022, down $4.1 million from the comparable period a year ago. The decrease reflects lower net income from Spire Marketing due to Winter Storm Uri in the prior year that was mostly offset by higher recovery of deferred gas costs.

Capital expenditures for the first half of fiscal 2022 were $275.9 million, down from $303.5 million in the prior year largely due to an approximate $15 million decrease in capital investment at our gas utilities and combined lower investment at Spire Storage and Spire STL Pipeline.

For additional details on Spire's results for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, please see the accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income, Balance Sheets, and Statements of Cash Flows.

Dividends

The Spire board of directors has declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.685 per share, payable July 5, 2022, to shareholders of record on June 10, 2022. We have continuously paid a cash common stock dividend since 1946, with 2022 marking the 19th consecutive year of increasing dividends on an annualized basis.

The board also declared the regular quarterly dividend of $0.36875 per depositary share on Spire's 5.90% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock payable August 15, 2022, to holders of record on July 25, 2022.

Forward-Looking Information and Non-GAAP Measures

This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Spire's future operating results may be affected by various uncertainties and risk factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control, including weather conditions, economic factors, the competitive environment, governmental and regulatory policy and action, and risks associated with acquisitions. More complete descriptions and listings of these uncertainties and risk factors can be found in the Company's annual (Form 10-K) filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

This news release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of "net economic earnings," "net economic earnings per share," and "contribution margin." Management also uses these non-GAAP measures internally when evaluating the Company's performance and results of operations. Net economic earnings exclude from net income, as applicable, the impacts of fair value accounting and timing adjustments associated with energy-related transactions, the impacts of acquisition, divestiture and restructuring activities and the largely non-cash impacts of impairments and other non-recurring or unusual items such as certain regulatory, legislative, or GAAP standard-setting actions. The fair value and timing adjustments, which primarily impact the Gas Marketing segment, include net unrealized gains and losses on energy-related derivatives resulting from the current changes in the fair value of financial and physical transactions prior to their completion and settlement, lower of cost or market inventory adjustments, and realized gains and losses on economic hedges prior to the sale of the physical commodity. Management believes that excluding these items provides a useful representation of the economic impact of actual settled transactions and overall results of ongoing operations. Contribution margin adjusts revenues to remove the costs that are directly passed on to customers and collected through revenues, which are the wholesale cost of natural gas and gross receipts taxes. These internal non-GAAP operating metrics should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, GAAP measures such as operating income, net income, or earnings per share.
