Baltimore (Feb. 27, 2024) - Constellation Energy Corporation (Nasdaq: CEG) today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2023.

"We had extremely strong financial and operational performance as our nuclear fleet continued to achieve unmatched reliability, allowing us to deliver carbon-free energy to our customers in all hours of the day under some of the harshest weather conditions in decades," said Joe Dominguez, president and CEO of Constellation. "Our generation fleet was matched by an industry-leading commercial business serving the most competitive large industrial customers and three-fourths of the Fortune 100 last year, including top names in technology and other industries seeking to drive economic growth with clean energy across our nation. We took a disciplined approach to growing our business in 2023, completing our acquisition of a partial stake in the South Texas Project nuclear plant, repowering our wind assets, taking steps to extend the life of our nuclear plants and investing in new equipment to increase their output. We are delivering our hourly-matched carbon-free energy product to top sustainability leaders, and our results reflect growing acknowledgement by our customers that nuclear energy delivers unique value that can't be matched anywhere in the marketplace."

"Our high investment grade balance sheet and the competitive advantage of our integrated generation and commercial business delivered exceptional financial performance in 2023, earning $4.025 billion in adjusted EBITDA, up from $2.667 billion in the previous year and over $900 million above the midpoint of our original guidance," said Dan Eggers, chief financial officer of Constellation. "We continue to invest in organic and inorganic growth opportunities, while doubling our dividend, completing our $1 billion share repurchase program and authorizing a second $1 billion repurchase program in December."
Investor and Analyst Webcast Information

Fourth Quarter 2023
Our GAAP Net Loss for the fourth quarter of 2023 was ($36) million, down from $34 million GAAP Net Income in the fourth quarter of 2022. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) for the fourth quarter of 2023 increased to $1,137 million from $605 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. For the reconciliations of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP), refer to the tables beginning on page 4.
Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) in the fourth quarter of 2023 primarily reflects:
•Favorable market and portfolio conditions partially offset by unfavorable labor, contracting, and materials, decreased ZEC revenues, decreased capacity revenues, and unfavorable impacts of nuclear outages

Full Year 2023
Our GAAP Net Income for 2023 was $1,623 million, compared to ($160) million GAAP Net Loss in 2022. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) for 2023 increased to $4,025 million from $2,667 million in 2022.
Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) for the full year 2023 primarily reflects:
•Favorable market and portfolio conditions partially offset by unfavorable labor, contracting, and materials, decreased capacity revenues, and unfavorable impacts of nuclear outages

Recent Developments and 2023 Highlights

•Delivering on Our Capital Allocation Promises: Through our strong free cash flows we delivered on our commitments announced last year to grow the business and return capital to shareholders. We grew our nuclear fleet with our acquisition of an undivided ownership interest in the South Texas Project Nuclear Generating Station, a 2,645-megawatt, dual-unit nuclear plant located about 90 miles southwest of Houston, for $1.65 billion, further expanding our contribution to a carbon-free future. We completed our initial $1 billion of share repurchases, buying back nearly 10.6 million shares. In December our Board of Directors approved expanding the program for an additional $1 billion, reinforcing our continued commitment to return value to shareholders. We received our second issuer credit rating upgrade from S&P since separation, from BBB to BBB+, reflecting their view that the financial risk has significantly improved with the nuclear production tax credit (PTC). We doubled our dividend from the 2022 level. During the year we also commenced our previously announced $350 million effort to increase the output and lifespan of our renewable energy portfolio, beginning with the repowering of our Criterion and Missouri wind facilities.

•No. 1 Producer of Carbon-Free Energy: For the 10th consecutive year we are the nation's largest producer of carbon-free energy and have the lowest rate of carbon dioxide emissions among the 20 largest private, investor-owned power producers in the United States, according to an independent analysis based on publicly reported 2021 air emissions data. The annual Benchmarking Air Emissions of the 100 Largest Electric Power Producers in the United States report showed that the next cleanest company among the group of 20 had more than four-and-a-half times the rate of carbon dioxide emissions as Constellation.

•Just Capital "Just 100": Just Capital recognized Constellation in its "Just 100," an annual ranking that reflects the performance of America's largest publicly traded companies based on a variety of issues deemed by Americans to be most important in business today. Key factors for selection range from how a company invests in its employees and communities, to how it treats customers and minimizes environmental impact.

•Community Partnership Award: We received the Community Partnership Award from The Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD) for our work in building a skilled energy workforce that represents the diverse communities we serve. The award recognizes our multi-faceted efforts to establish lasting and impactful relationships with our local community - including educators, minority facing organizations, workforce development nonprofits and others - to fuel the energy talent pipeline. We also teamed up with CEWD to sponsor its Energy Industry Fundamentals 2.0 program. The interactive, 120-hour curriculum for high school and technical school students aims to provide expanded energy education and career awareness to 500,000 students over the next decade.

•2023 Great Place to Work Certification: In the third quarter we were Certified™ by Great Place To Work®. The designation is based on how our employees rate their experience working at Constellation. In a survey of about 5,000 of our employees, 81% of those who responded said it is a great place to work - about 24 points higher than the average U.S. company. Great Place To Work® is acknowledged worldwide as a global benchmark for workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver strong market performance, employee retention and increased innovation.

•Nuclear Operations: Our nuclear fleet, including our owned output from the Salem and South Texas Project (STP) Generating Stations, produced 45,563 gigawatt-hours (GWhs) in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with 44,436 GWhs in the fourth quarter of 2022. Excluding Salem and STP, our nuclear plants at ownership achieved a 95.1% capacity factor for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with 95.4% for the fourth quarter of 2022. There were 56 planned refueling outage days in the fourth quarter of 2023 and 65 in the fourth quarter of 2022. There were seven non-refueling outage days in the fourth quarter of 2023 and three in the fourth quarter of 2022.

•Natural Gas, Oil, and Renewables Operations: The dispatch match rate for our gas and hydro fleet was 97.5% in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with 96.1%1 in the fourth quarter of 2022. Energy capture for the wind and solar fleet was 96.3% in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with 96.7%1 in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In analyzing and planning for our business, we supplement our use of net income as determined under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), with Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) as a performance measure. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) reflects an additional way of viewing our business that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation to GAAP net income included above, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures and is, by definition, an incomplete understanding of our business, and must be considered in conjunction with GAAP measures. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) is neither a standardized financial measure, nor a presentation defined under GAAP and may not be comparable to other companies' presentations or deemed more useful than the GAAP information provided elsewhere in this press release and earnings release attachments. We have provided the non-GAAP financial measure as supplemental information and in addition to the financial measures that are calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) should not be deemed more useful than, a substitute for, or an alternative to the most comparable GAAP Net Income measure provided in this earnings release and attachments. This press release and earnings release attachments provide reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and are posted on our website: www.ConstellationEnergy.com, and have been furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 8-K on February 27, 2024.
