FINANCIAL RESULTS BY MAJOR LINES OF BUSINESS

South Carolina Electric & Gas Company

Reported earnings for the second quarter of 2017 at South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G), SCANA's principal subsidiary, were $126 million, or earnings per share of 88 cents, compared to $113 million, or 79 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2016. Higher electric and gas margins and lower operations and maintenance expenses were partially offset by increases to our capital program including interest expense, depreciation, and property taxes.  Abnormal weather increased earnings by 4 cents per share in the second quarter of 2017, compared to abnormal weather contributing 5 cents per share in the second quarter of 2016.  As of June 30, 2017, SCE&G was serving approximately 718,000 electric customers and 362,000 natural gas customers, up 1.6 and 2.9 percent, respectively, over 2016.

PSNC Energy

PSNC Energy, the Company's North Carolina-based retail natural gas distribution subsidiary, reported second quarter 2017 earnings of $2 million, or 1 cent per share, compared to a breakeven result in the same quarter of 2016.  This increase is primarily attributable to higher gas margins from customer growth and a rate increase that became effective November 1, 2016.  At June 30, 2017, PSNC Energy was serving approximately 548,000 customers, an increase of 2.6 percent over the previous year. 

SCANA Energy Marketing

This increase is primarily due to higher gas margins in the second quarter of 2017 versus the same quarter of the prior year.
