CALIFORNIA WATER SERVICE GROUP

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

June 30, 2014

(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

 

Note 1. Organization and Operations and Basis of Presentation

 

California Water Service Group (the Company) is a holding company that provides water utility and other related services in California, Washington, New Mexico and Hawaii through its wholly-owned subsidiaries. California Water Service Company (Cal Water), Washington Water Service Company (Washington Water), New Mexico Water Service Company (New Mexico Water), and Hawaii Water Service Company, Inc. (Hawaii Water) provide regulated utility services under the rules and regulations of their respective state’s regulatory commissions (jointly referred to herein as the Commissions). CWS Utility Services and HWS Utility Services LLC provide non-regulated water utility and utility-related services.

 

The Company operates in one reportable segment, providing water and related utility services.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited interim financial information has been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and therefore do not contain all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP and the SEC for annual financial statements. The condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013, included in its annual report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on February 27, 2014.

 

The preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the balance sheet dates and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses for the periods presented. These include, but are not limited to, estimates and assumptions used in determining the Company’s regulatory asset and liability balances based upon probability assessments of regulatory recovery, revenues earned but not yet billed, asset retirement obligations, allowance for doubtful accounts, pension and other employee benefit plan liabilities, and income tax-related assets and liabilities.  Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals that are necessary to provide a fair presentation of the results for the periods covered. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for any future period.

 

Due to the seasonal nature of the water business, the results for interim periods are not indicative of the results for a 12-month period. Revenue and income are generally higher in the warm, dry summer months when water usage and sales are greater. Revenue and income are generally lower in the winter months when cooler temperatures and rainfall curtail water usage and sales.

 

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Revenue

 

Revenue generally includes monthly cycle customer billings for regulated water and wastewater services at rates authorized by regulatory commissions (plus an estimate for water used between the customer’s last meter reading and the end of the accounting period) and billings to certain non-regulated customers at rates authorized by contract with government agencies.

 

The Company’s regulated water and waste water revenue requirements are authorized by the Commissions in the states in which it operates. The revenue requirements are intended to provide the Company an opportunity to recover its operating costs and earn a reasonable return on investments.

 

For metered customers, Cal Water recognizes revenue from rates which are designed and authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Under the Water Revenue Adjustment Mechanism (WRAM), Cal Water records the adopted level of volumetric revenues, which would include recovery of cost of service and a return on investments, as established by the CPUC for metered accounts (adopted volumetric revenues). In addition to volumetric-based revenues, the revenue requirements approved by the CPUC include service charges, flat rate charges, and other items not subject to the WRAM. The adopted volumetric revenue considers the seasonality of consumption of water based upon historical averages. The variance between adopted volumetric revenues and actual billed volumetric revenues for metered accounts is recorded as a component of revenue with an offsetting entry to a regulatory asset or liability balancing account (tracked individually for each Cal Water district) subject to certain criteria

Table of Contents

 

under the accounting for regulated operations being met. The variance amount may be positive or negative and represents amounts that will be billed or refunded to customers in the future.

 

Cost-recovery rates are designed to permit full recovery of certain costs. Cost-recovery rates such as the Modified Cost Balancing Account (MCBA) provides for recovery of adopted expense levels for purchased water, purchased power and pump taxes, as established by the CPUC. In addition, cost-recovery rates include recovery of cost related to water conservation programs and certain other operation expenses adopted by the CPUC. There is no markup for return or profit for cost-recovery expenses and are generally recognized when expenses are incurred.  Variances (which include the effects of changes in both rate and volume for the MCBA) between adopted and actual costs are recorded as a component of revenue, as the amount of such variances will be recovered from or refunded to Cal Water customers at a later date.  The variance between adopted costs and actual costs for metered accounts is recorded as a component of revenue with an offsetting entry to a regulatory asset or liability balancing account (transferred individually for each Cal Water District) subject to certain criteria under the accounting for regulated operations being met.

 

The balances in the WRAM and MCBA assets and liabilities accounts will fluctuate on a monthly basis depending upon the variance between adopted and actual results. The recovery or refund of the WRAM is netted against the MCBA over- or under-recovery for the corresponding district and is interest bearing at the current 90 day commercial paper rate. At the end of any calendar year, Cal Water files with the CPUC to refund or collect the balance in the accounts. Most undercollected net WRAM and MCBA receivable balances are collected over 12 or 18 months. Cal Water defers net WRAM and MCBA operating revenues and associated costs whenever the net receivable balances are estimated to be collected more than 24 months after the respective reporting periods in which it was recognized. The deferred net WRAM and MCBA revenues and associated costs were determined using forecasts of rate payer consumption trends in future reporting periods and the timing of when the CPUC will authorize Cal Water’s filings to recover the undercollected balances. Deferred net WRAM and MCBA revenues and associated costs will be recognized as revenues and costs in future periods when collection is within twenty-four months of the respective reporting period.

 

The net WRAM and MCBA balances included in regulatory balancing account, assets, and liabilities were:

Flat rate customers are billed in advance at the beginning of the service period. The revenue is prorated so that the portion of revenue applicable to the current period is included in that period’s revenue, with the balance recorded as unearned revenue on the balance sheets and recognized as revenue when earned in the subsequent accounting period. The unearned revenue liability was $1.4 million as of June 30, 2014 and $1.5 million as of December 31, 2013. This liability is included in “accrued expenses and other liabilities” on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents include highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less.  Cash and cash equivalents was $29.7 million and $27.5 million as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.  Restricted cash was presented on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as “taxes, prepaid expenses and other assets” and was $0.9 million and $1.2 million as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

 

Accounting Standards Update

 

On May 28, 2014 the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued an accounting standards update (ASU) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.  This update creates a single, principles based framework for revenue recognition and is based on principles that govern the recognition of revenue at an amount an entity expects to be entitled when goods or services are transferred to customers.  ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is not permitted.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the new revenue standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Equity Incentive Plan

 

The Company’s equity incentive plan was originally approved by stockholders on April 27, 2005 and again on May 20, 2014.  Under the equity incentive plan, the Company is authorized to issue up to 2,000,000 shares of common stock awards as defined in the Plan to employees and directors.

 

The Restricted Stock Awards (RSAs) granted in 2014 and 2013 to employees vest over 36 months.  Director RSAs generally vest at the end of 12 months.  During the first six months of 2014, the RSAs granted were valued at $23.61 per share, based upon the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant.

 

The table below reflects RSAs granted under the Equity Incentive Plan for the six months ended June 30, 2014:

During the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company also granted performance-based Restricted Stock Unit Awards (RSUs) of 37,143 shares and 50,267 shares of common stock, respectively, to officers.  Each award reflects a target number of shares that may be issued to the award recipient.  The 2014 and 2013 awards may be earned upon the completion of the three-year performance period ending on March 4, 2017 and March 3, 2016, respectively.  Whether RSUs are earned at the end of the performance period will be determined based on the achievement of certain performance objectives set by the Board of Director Compensation Committee in connection with the issuance of the RSUs.  The performance objectives are based on the Company’s business plan covering the performance period.  The performance objectives include achieving the budgeted return on equity, budgeted investment in utility plant, customer service standards, water quality standards, and/or safety standards.  Depending on the results achieved during the three-year performance period, the actual number of shares that a grant recipient receives at the end of the performance period may range from 0% to 200% of the target shares granted, provided that the grantee is continuously employed by the Company through the vesting date.  If, prior to the vesting date, employment is terminated by reason of death, disability or normal retirement, then a pro rata portion of this award will vest.  RSUs are not included in diluted shares for financial reporting until earned.  The 2014 and 2013 RSUs are recognized as expense ratably over the three year performance period using a fair market value of $23.61 per share and $20.62 per share, respectively, and an estimate of RSUs earned during the performance period.

 

The Company has recorded compensation costs for the RSAs and RSUs in operating expense in the amount of $1.0 million and $0.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively.

Note 5. Net Income Per Share Calculations

 

The computations of basic and diluted net income per weighted average common shares are noted below. Basic net income per share is computed by dividing the net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. RSAs are included in the weighted average common shares outstanding because the shares have all the same voting and dividend rights as issued and unrestricted common stock. Diluted net income per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts were exercised or converted into common stock.

 

A total of 212,920 shares and 333,856 shares of Stock Appreciation Rights were vested and outstanding and all were dilutive as of June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively, as shown in the table below.

Note 6. Pension Plan and Other Postretirement Benefits

 

The Company provides a qualified, defined-benefit, non-contributory pension plan for substantially all employees. The Company makes annual contributions to fund the amounts accrued for the qualified pension plan. The Company also maintains an unfunded, non-qualified, supplemental executive retirement plan. The costs of the plans are charged to expense or are capitalized in utility plant as appropriate.

 

The Company offers medical, dental, vision, and life insurance benefits for retirees and their spouses and dependents. Participants are required to pay a premium, which offsets a portion of the cost.

 

Cash payments by the Company related to pension plans and other postretirement benefit plans were $16.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and were $17.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013. The 2014 estimated cash contribution to the pension plans is $26.8 million and to the other postretirement benefit plans is $9.6 million.

 

The following table lists components of net periodic benefit costs for the pension plans and other postretirement benefits. The data listed under “pension plan” includes the qualified pension plan and the non-qualified supplemental executive retirement plan. The data listed under “other benefits” is for all other postretirement benefits.

Note 7. Short-term and Long-term Borrowings

 

On June 29, 2011, the Company and Cal Water entered into Syndicated Credit Agreements, which provide for unsecured revolving credit facilities of up to an initial aggregate amount of $400 million.  The Syndicated Credit Facilities amend, expand, and replace the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ existing credit facilities originally entered into on October 27, 2009.  The new credit facilities extended the terms until June 29, 2016, increased the Company’s and Cal Water’s unsecured revolving lines of credit, and lowered interest rates and fees.  The Company and subsidiaries that it designates may borrow up to $100 million under the Company’s revolving credit facility. Cal Water may borrow up to $300 million under its revolving credit facility; however, all borrowings need to be repaid within 12-months unless otherwise authorized by the CPUC.  The proceeds from the revolving credit facilities may be used for working capital purposes, including the short-term financing of capital projects.  The base loan rate may vary from LIBOR plus 72.5 basis points to LIBOR plus 95 basis points, depending on the Company’s total capitalization ratio.  Likewise, the unused commitment fee may vary from 8 basis points to 12.5 basis points based on the same ratio.

 

Both short-term unsecured credit agreements contain affirmative and negative covenants and events of default customary for credit facilities of this type including, among other things, limitations and prohibitions relating to additional indebtedness, liens, mergers, and asset sales. Also, these unsecured credit agreements contain financial covenants governing the Company and its subsidiaries’ consolidated total capitalization ratio and interest coverage ratio.

 

As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the outstanding borrowings on the Company lines of credit were $16.2 million and $16.8 million, respectively, and were $65.0 million and $30.0 million as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 on the Cal Water lines of credit, respectively.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the average borrowing rate was 1.20% compared to 2.30% for the same period last year.

 

Note 8. Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Measurement of the deferred tax assets and liabilities is at enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

The Company anticipates that future rate actions by the regulatory commissions will reflect revenue requirements for the tax effects of temporary differences recognized, which have previously been passed through to customers. The regulatory commissions have granted the Company rate increases to reflect the normalization of the tax benefits of the federal accelerated methods and available Investment Tax Credits (ITCs) for all assets placed in service after 1980. ITCs are deferred and amortized over the lives of the related properties for book purposes.

 

During 2012, the Company filed an application for a change in tax accounting method with the IRS to implement tangible property regulations specifically in regards to repairs and maintenance deductions.  On September 13, 2013, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued the final and re-proposed tangible property regulations for repairs and maintenance deductions with an effective date of January 1, 2014.  These tax regulations allowed the Company to deduct a

 

11



Table of Contents

 

significant amount of linear asset costs previously capitalized for book and tax purposes.  The Company intends to file a tax accounting method change with its 2013 tax return for the repair and maintenance of linear assets within the guidance of the tangible property regulations.  During the second quarter of 2014 the Company recorded additional repairs deductions of $52.3 million for federal and $64.0 million for state.  The Company’s total federal net operating loss (NOL) was $67.1 million and state net operating loss NOL was $106.0 million as of December 31, 2013.  The NOL carry-forward amounts are more likely than not to be recovered and therefore require no valuation allowance.  The NOL carry-forward does not begin to expire until 2033.

 

As of June 30, 2014 the Company had unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $7.2 million.  Included in the balance of  unrecognized tax benefits is approximately $1.6 million of tax benefits that, if  recognized, would result in an adjustment to the Company’s effective tax rate. The Company does not expect its unrecognized tax benefits to change significantly within the next twelve months.

 

The State of Hawaii Department of Taxation is presently auditing the Company’s 2011 and 2012 Hawaii state income tax returns.  The State of California Board of Equalization is presently auditing the Company’s 2010, 2011, and 2012 sales and use tax filings.  It is uncertain when the state audits will be completed.  The Company believes that the final resolution of the state audits will not have a material impact on its financial condition or results of operations.

 

Note 9. Regulatory Assets and Liabilities

 

During 2011, the CPUC issued a decision regarding the $34.2 million of litigation proceeds previously received by Cal Water during 2008 which is being used to replace infrastructure damaged by the gasoline additive Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE). The decision requires use of these proceeds for costs incurred as a result of MTBE contamination with any related benefits to be provided to Cal Water customers. Such usage includes transfer of the amount to contributions in aid of construction (CIAC) for remediation or replacement project costs once complete. Usage of the proceeds is reported to the CPUC through an Advice Letter or General Rate Case filing. As of December 31, 2013, $28.3 million of the proceeds was recorded as CIAC and $0.9 million was spent on MTBE legal services.  The remaining balance of $5.0 million is recorded as other long-term liabilities.

 

During 2011, Cal Water added balancing accounts for its pension plans and conservation program. Both balancing account effective dates were January 1, 2011. The pension plan’s balancing account is a two-way balancing account that tracks the differences between actual expenses and adopted rate recovery which will result in either a regulatory asset or liability. The conservation program is a one-way balancing account that tracks the differences between actual expenses and adopted rate recovery which may result in a regulatory liability if actual conservation expenses are less than adopted over the three year period ending December 31, 2013. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the pension balancing account was a regulatory asset of $1.0 million and $3.0 million, respectively.  The conservation balancing account was a regulatory liability of $6.8 million as of June 30, 2014 and $6.3 million as of December 31, 2013.

 

Note 10. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Commitments

 

The Company has significant commitments to lease certain office spaces and water systems and to purchase water from water wholesalers. These commitments are described in Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.  As of June 30, 2014, there were no significant changes from December 31, 2013.

 

Contingencies

 

Groundwater Contamination

 

The Company has undertaken litigation against third parties to recover past and future costs related to ground water contamination in the Company’s service areas. The cost of litigation is expensed as incurred and any settlement is first offset against such costs. The Commission’s general policy requires all proceeds from contamination litigation to be used first to pay transactional expenses, then to make ratepayers whole for water treatment costs to comply with the Commission’s water quality standards. The Commission allows for a risk-based consideration of contamination proceeds which exceed the costs of the remediation described above and may result in some sharing of proceeds with the shareholder, determined on a case by case basis. The Commission has authorized various memorandum accounts that allow the Company to track significant litigation costs to request recovery of these costs in future filings and uses of proceeds to comply with Commission’s general policy.

Other Legal Matters

 

From time to time, the Company is involved in various disputes and litigation matters that arise in the ordinary course of business. The status of each significant matter is reviewed and assessed for potential financial exposure. If the potential loss from any claim or legal proceeding is considered probable and the amount of the range of loss can be estimated, a liability is accrued for the estimated loss in accordance with the accounting standards for contingencies. Legal proceedings are subject to uncertainties, and the outcomes are difficult to predict. Because of such uncertainties, accruals are based on the best information available at the time. While the outcome of these disputes and litigation matters cannot be predicted with any certainty, management does not believe when taking into account existing reserves the ultimate resolution of these matters will materially affect the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.  The Company recognized a liability of $2.5 million and $1.3 million for all known legal matters as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.  The cost of litigation is expensed as incurred and any settlement is first offset against such costs.  Any settlement in excess of the cost to litigate is accounted for on a case by case basis, dependant on the nature of the settlement.

 

Note 11. Fair Value of Financial Assets and Liabilities

 

The accounting guidance for fair value measurements and disclosures provides a single definition of fair value and requires certain disclosures about assets and liabilities measured at fair value. A hierarchal framework for disclosing the observability of the inputs utilized in measuring assets and liabilities at fair value is established by this guidance. The three levels in the hierarchy are as follows:

 

Level 1 -                         Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 1 are highly liquid and actively traded instruments with quoted prices.

 

Level 2 -                         Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets, but are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 2 are typically either comparable to actively traded securities or contracts, or priced with discounted cash flow or option pricing models using highly observable inputs.

 

Level 3 -                         Significant inputs to pricing have little or no observability as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 3 are those valued with models requiring significant management judgment or estimation.

 

Specific valuation methods include the following:

 

Cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable carrying amounts approximated the fair value because of the short-term maturity of the instruments.

 

Long-term debt fair values were estimated using the published quoted market price, if available, or the discounted cash flow analysis, based on the current rates available using a risk-free rate (a U.S. Treasury securities yield curve) plus a risk premium of 1.19%.

 

Advances for construction fair values were estimated using broker quotes from companies that frequently purchase these investments.

Note 12. Subsequent Event

 

On July 21, 2014, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued a proposed decision authorizing rate increases in all regulated operating districts in California effective January 1, 2014.  The proposed decision authorizes an increase of $45.3 million or 9.2% in rates for 2014, $10.1 million or 1.9% in rates for 2015 and $10.0 million or 1.8% in rates for 2016 which includes completion of the Company’s authorized capital projects.   The authorized increase in rates for 2015 and 2016 is subject to the CPUC’s escalation procedures.  The proposed decision authorizes Cal Water to invest $448.9 million in districts throughout California over the three-year period from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2015 in order to provide a safe and reliable water supply to its customers.  Included in the $448.9 million in water system infrastructure improvements is $125.8 million that would be recovered through the CPUC’s advice letter procedure upon completion of qualified projects.
