HONOLULU: Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. ( NYSE: HE) (HEI) today reported consolidated net income for common stock for the second quarter of 2022 of $52.5 million and EPS of $0.48 compared to $63.9 million and EPS of $0.58 for the second quarter of 2021. The lower net income was due primarily to the prior year's negative provision for credit losses at American Savings Bank, and the return to a more normalized provision expense due to strong loan growth.

"Our consolidated second quarter results reflect solid performance across our enterprise," said Scott Seu, HEI president and CEO. "The utility continues to execute well under performance-based regulation, and will continue to focus on cost control to moderate the impacts of inflation and high fuel costs on customer bills. We did see higher maintenance expenses due to purposeful acceleration of work on our generating units to reduce downtimes and ensure reliable service to our customers as we completely transition off of coal and one of the largest power plants in the state on September 1. Our bank results reflect good execution from the team and an earnings level that is driven by a more normalized provision in comparison to recent periods.

"We know that our communities and customers are feeling financially challenged, and we are continuing to provide options to help manage their utility bills, while our bank continues working to help meet customers' financial needs," said Seu.
