Corporate Highlights

  • Pending Acquisition of Kentucky Power Company and AEP Kentucky Transmission Company, Inc. – On May 4, 2022, the Kentucky Public Service Commission ("KPSC") issued an order, including an approval of the pending acquisition of Kentucky Power Company and AEP Kentucky Transmission Company, Inc. (the "Kentucky Power Transaction") by Liberty Utilities Co. ("Liberty Utilities"), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of AQN, subject to certain conditions set forth in the order, including those agreed to by Liberty Utilities in the course of the docket. On May 3, 2022, the KPSC issued an order that required certain changes to the proposed operating and ownership agreements (collectively, the "Mitchell Agreements") relating to the Mitchell coal generating facility (in which Kentucky Power owns a 50% interest, representing 780 MW). On July 1, 2022, the Public Service Commission of West Virginia ("WVPSC") issued an order on the Mitchell Agreements that is inconsistent with the KPSC's order on the Mitchell Agreements. The closing of the Kentucky Power Transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, which include those relating to the approval of the Mitchell Agreements by the KPSC, WVPSC and U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Liberty Utilities and AEP are in discussions to reach a resolution regarding the conditions precedent in respect of the Mitchell Agreements (the "Mitchell Agreements Condition"), which if successful, could allow the Kentucky Power Transaction to close in the second half of 2022.
  • Completion of the Blue Hill Wind Facility – On April 14, 2022, the Renewable Energy Group achieved commercial operations ("COD") at its 175 MW Blue Hill Wind Facility, located in southwest Saskatchewan. The energy generated from the facility is being sold through a long-term power purchase agreement with SaskPower. Bringing low-cost renewable generation capacity to communities is one of the ways the Company is delivering on its commitment to sustainability.
  • Completion of Sandhill Renewable Natural Gas Acquisition – On August 5, 2022, the Renewable Energy Group completed its acquisition of Sandhill Advanced Biofuels, LLC ("Sandhill"). Sandhill is a developer of renewable natural gas ("RNG") anaerobic digestion projects located on dairy farms with a portfolio of four projects in the state of Wisconsin. Two of the projects recently achieved COD, while the other two projects are in late-stage development. Once fully constructed, the portfolio is expected to produce RNG at a rate of approximately 500 million British thermal units ("MMBTUs") per day. The acquisition represents the Company's first investment in the non-regulated RNG space.
  • Moody's assigns Baa2 rating – On August 5, 2022, Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") assigned an inaugural Baa2 long term issuer rating to Liberty Utilities with a stable outlook. Liberty Utilities is also rated by S&P Global Ratings and Fitch Ratings.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Information

Certain statements included in this news release constitute ''forward-looking information'' within the meaning of applicable securities laws in each of the provinces and territories of Canada and the respective policies, regulations and rules under such laws and ''forward-looking statements'' within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (collectively, ''forward-looking statements"). The words "will", "expects", "believes", "plans", "could" and similar expressions are often intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Specific forward-looking statements in this news release include, but are not limited to, statements regarding: the expected future earnings, performance and growth of AQN; capital expenditure plans; expectations regarding the anticipated closing of the Kentucky Power Transaction; and the expected generating capacity of the Blue Hill Wind Facility and the Sandhill RNG projects. These statements are based on factors or assumptions that were applied in drawing a conclusion or making a forecast or projection, including assumptions based on historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments. Since forward-looking statements relate to future events and conditions, by their very nature they require making assumptions and involve inherent risks and uncertainties. AQN cautions that although it is believed that the assumptions are reasonable in the circumstances, these risks and uncertainties give rise to the possibility that actual results may differ materially from the expectations set out in the forward-looking statements. Material risk factors and assumptions include those set out in AQN's Management Discussion & Analysis and Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2021, and in AQN's Management Discussion & Analysis for the three months and six ended June 30, 2022 (the "Interim MD&A"), each of which is or will be available on SEDAR and EDGAR. Given these risks, undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of their dates. Other than as specifically required by law, AQN undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, subsequent or otherwise

Non-GAAP Measures

AQN uses a number of financial measures to assess the performance of its business lines. Some measures are calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"), while other measures do not have a standardized meaning under U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP ratios, each as defined in Canadian National Instrument 52-112 – Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures Disclosure. AQN's method of calculating these measures may differ from methods used by other companies and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

The terms "Adjusted Net Earnings", "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Adjusted Funds from Operations", which are used in this news release, are non-GAAP financial measures. An explanation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures can be found in the section entitled "Caution Concerning Non-GAAP Measures" in the Interim MD&A, which section is incorporated by reference into this news release, and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, in each case, can be found below. In addition, "Adjusted Net Earnings" is presented in this news release on a per share basis. Adjusted Net Earnings per share is a non-GAAP ratio and is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Earnings by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the applicable period.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Earnings

The following table is derived from and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated statement of operations. This supplementary disclosure is intended to more fully explain disclosures related to Adjusted EBITDA and provides additional information related to the operating performance of AQN. Investors are cautioned that this measure should not be construed as an alternative to U.S. GAAP consolidated net earnings.
