FORWARD‑LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 including, in particular, the statements about our plans, strategies and prospects under the heading “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Part I – Financial Information of this Form 10-Q. Forward-looking statements express an expectation or belief and contain a projection, plan or assumption with regard to, among other things, our future revenues, income, expenses or capital structure. Such statements of future events or performance are not guarantees of future performance and involve estimates, assumptions and uncertainties. The words “could,” “may,” “predict,” “anticipate,” “would,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “project,” “objective,” “intend,” “continue,” “should,” “plan,” and similar expressions, or the negatives thereof, are intended to identify forward-looking statements unless the context requires otherwise.
 
Some important factors that could cause our actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:
 
growth in our service territory and changes in demand and demographic patterns;
impacts of weather on retail sales and wholesale prices;
impacts of renewable energy generation, natural gas prices and other market factors on wholesale prices;
weather-related damage to our electrical system;
fuel, commodity and other input costs;
performance of our suppliers;
generating unit availability and capacity;
transmission and distribution system reliability and capacity, including natural gas pipeline system and supply constraints;
purchased power costs and availability;
availability and price of capacity;
regulatory action, including, but not limited to, the review of our basic rates and charges by the IURC;
federal and state legislation and regulations;
changes in our credit ratings or the credit ratings of AES;  
fluctuations in the value of pension plan assets, fluctuations in pension plan expenses and our ability to fund defined benefit pension plans;
changes in financial or regulatory accounting policies;
environmental matters, including costs of compliance with current and future environmental laws and requirements;
interest rates, inflation rates and other costs of capital;
the availability of capital;
the ability of subsidiaries to pay dividends or distributions to IPALCO;
level of creditworthiness of counterparties to contracts and transactions;
labor strikes or other workforce factors, including the ability to attract and retain key personnel;
facility or equipment maintenance, repairs and capital expenditures;
significant delays or unanticipated cost increases associated with large construction projects;
the availability and cost of funds to finance working capital and capital needs, particularly during periods when the time lag between incurring costs and recovery is long and the costs are material;
local economic conditions;
catastrophic events such as fires, explosions, cyber-attacks, terrorist acts, acts of war, pandemic events, or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, severe winds, ice or snow storms, droughts, or other similar occurrences;
costs and effects of legal and administrative proceedings, audits, settlements, investigations and claims and the ultimate disposition of litigation;
industry restructuring, deregulation and competition;
issues related to our participation in MISO, including the cost associated with membership, allocation of costs, costs associated with transmission expansion, the recovery of costs incurred, and the risk of default of other MISO participants;
changes in tax laws and the effects of our strategies to reduce tax payments;
the use of derivative contracts; and
product development, technology changes, and changes in prices of products and technologies.


5


All of the above factors are difficult to predict, contain uncertainties that may materially affect actual results, and many are beyond our control. See “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K for a more detailed discussion of the foregoing and certain other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in any forward-looking statements. Except as required by the federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. If one or more forward-looking statements are updated, no inference should be drawn that additional updates will be made with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.

IPALCO ENTERPRISES, INC. and SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

1. OVERVIEW AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

IPALCO is a holding company incorporated under the laws of the state of Indiana. IPALCO is owned by AES U.S. Investments (82.35%) and CDPQ (17.65%). AES U.S. Investments is owned by AES U.S. Holdings, LLC (85%) and CDPQ (15%). IPALCO owns all of the outstanding common stock of IPL. Substantially all of IPALCO’s business consists of generating, transmitting, distributing and selling of electric energy conducted through its principal subsidiary, IPL. IPL was incorporated under the laws of the state of Indiana in 1926. IPL has approximately 490,000 retail customers in the city of Indianapolis and neighboring cities, towns and communities, and adjacent rural areas all within the state of Indiana, with the most distant point being approximately forty miles from Indianapolis. IPL has an exclusive right to provide electric service to those customers. IPL owns and operates four generating stations, all within the state of Indiana. IPL’s largest generating station, Petersburg, is coal-fired. The second largest station, Harding Street, uses natural gas and fuel oil to power combustion turbines. In addition, IPL operates a 20 MW battery energy storage unit at this location, which provides frequency response. The third station, Eagle Valley, is a newly constructed 671 MW CCGT. IPL took operational control and commenced commercial operations of this CCGT in April 2018. The fourth station, Georgetown, is a small peaking station that uses natural gas to power combustion turbines. As of March 31, 2018, IPL’s net electric generation capacity for winter is 2,996 MW and net summer capacity is 2,881 MW.

Principles of Consolidation
 
The accompanying Financial Statements include the accounts of IPALCO, IPL and Mid-America Capital Resources, Inc., a non-regulated wholly-owned subsidiary of IPALCO. All significant intercompany amounts have been eliminated. The accompanying Financial Statements are unaudited; however, they have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and in conjunction with the rules and regulations of the SEC. Accordingly, they do not include all of the disclosures required by GAAP for annual fiscal reporting periods. In the opinion of management, all adjustments of a normal recurring nature necessary for fair presentation have been included. The electric utility business is affected by seasonal weather patterns throughout the year and, therefore, the operating revenues and associated operating expenses are not generated evenly by month during the year. These unaudited Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies described in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K and should be read in conjunction therewith.
 
Use of Management Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires that management make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. The reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period may also be affected by the estimates and assumptions that management is required to make. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

Reclassifications

Certain immaterial amounts from prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

New Accounting Pronouncements Adopted in 2018

The following table provides a brief description of recent accounting pronouncements that had an impact on the Company’s Financial Statements. Accounting pronouncements not listed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have no material impact on the Company’s Financial Statements.
New Accounting Standards Adopted
ASU Number and Name
Description
Date of Adoption
Effect on the financial statements upon adoption
2017-07, Compensation - Retirement Benefits (Topic 715): Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost
This standard changes the presentation of non-service costs associated with defined benefit plans and updates the guidance so that only the service cost component will be eligible for capitalization. Transition method: Retrospective for presentation of non-service cost expense. Prospective for the change in capitalization.
January 1, 2018
The adoption of this standard resulted in a $(0.4) million reclassification of non-service pension costs (credits) from Other operating expenses to Miscellaneous income and (deductions) - net for the three months ended March 31, 2017.
2014-09, 2015-14, 2016-08,
2016-10, 2016-12, 2016-20, 2017-10, 2017-13, Revenue from Contracts
with Customers (Topic
606)

See discussion of the ASUs below.


January 1, 2018
See impact upon adoption of the standard below.


Adoption of ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, and its subsequent corresponding updates (“ASC 606”). Under this standard, an entity shall recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company applied the modified retrospective method of adoption to those contracts that were not completed as of January 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning January 1, 2018 are presented under ASC 606, while prior period amounts were not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting under the previous revenue recognition standard. For contracts that were modified before January 1, 2018, the Company reflected the aggregate effect of all modifications when identifying the satisfied and unsatisfied performance obligations, determining the transaction price and allocating the transaction price.

There was no cumulative effect to our January 1, 2018 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet resulting from the adoption of ASC 606.

310-20): Premium
Amortization on
Purchased Callable Debt
Securities

This standard shortens the period of amortization for the premium on certain callable debt securities to the earliest call date. Transition method: modified retrospective.

January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted.

The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the standard on its consolidated financial statements.

2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments
The standard updates the impairment model for financial assets
measured at amortized cost. For trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans and other instruments, entities will be required to use a new forward-looking “expected loss” model that generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowance for losses. For available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses, entities will measure credit losses as it is done today, except that the losses will be recognized as an allowance rather than a reduction in the amortized cost of the securities.
Transition method: various.

January 1, 2020 Early adoption is permitted only as of January 1, 2019.
The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the standard on its consolidated financial statements.
2016-02, 2018-01, Leases (Topic 842)
See discussion of the ASUs below.
January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted.
The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the standard on its consolidated financial statements.

ASU 2016-02 and its subsequent corresponding updates require lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for most leases but recognize expenses in a manner similar to the current accounting methods. For lessors, the guidance modifies the lease classification criteria and the accounting for sales-type and direct financing leases. The guidance also eliminates the current real estate-specific provisions.

The standard must be adopted using a modified retrospective approach at the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements (i.e., January 1, 2017). The FASB proposed amending the standard to give another option for transition. The proposed transition method would allow entities to not apply the new lease standard in the comparative periods presented in their financial statements in the year of adoption. Under the proposed transition method, the entity would apply the transition provisions on January 1, 2019 (i.e., the effective date). At transition, lessees and lessors are permitted to make an election to apply a package of practical expedients that allow them not to reassess: (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) whether initial direct costs for any expired or existing leases qualify for capitalization under ASC 842. These three practical expedients must be elected as a package and must be consistently applied to all leases. Furthermore, entities are also permitted to make an election to use hindsight when determining lease term and lessees can elect to use hindsight when assessing the impairment of right-of-use assets.

The Company has established a task force focused on the identification of contracts that would be under the scope of the new standard and on the assessment and measurement of the right-of-use asset and related liability. Additionally, the implementation team has been working on the configuration of a lease accounting system that will support the implementation and the subsequent accounting. The implementation team is in the process of evaluating changes to our business processes, systems and controls to support recognition and disclosure under the new standard.

As the Company has preliminarily concluded that at transition it would be using the package of practical expedients, the main impact expected as of the effective date is the recognition of the right to use asset and the related liability in the financial statements for all those contracts that contain a lease and for which the Company is the lessee. However, income statement presentation and the expense recognition pattern will not change.

Under ASC 842, it is expected that fewer contracts will contain a lease. However, due to the elimination of today's real estate-specific guidance and changes to certain lessor classification criteria, more leases will qualify as sales-type leases and direct financing leases. Under these two models, a lessor will derecognize the asset and will recognize a lease receivable. According to ASC 842, the lease receivable does not include variable payments that depend on the use of the asset (e.g. MWh produced by

12



a facility). Therefore, the lease receivable could be lower than the carrying amount of the underlying asset at lease commencement. In such circumstances, the difference between the initially recognized lease receivable and the carrying amount of the underlying asset is recognized as a selling loss at lease commencement. The Company is assessing situations for which this guidance would apply.

2. REGULATORY MATTERS
 
Basic Rates and Charges

In May 2014, IPL received an order from the IURC granting approval to build a 644 to 685 MW CCGT at Eagle Valley. The costs to build and operate the CCGT, other than fuel costs, will not be recoverable by IPL through rates until the conclusion of a base rate case proceeding with the IURC after construction is completed.

IPL filed a petition with the IURC on December 21, 2017, for authority to increase its basic rates and charges to coincide with the completion of the CCGT in the first half of 2018. IPL’s proposed revenue increase was $124.5 million annually, or 9.1%. On February 16, 2018, IPL filed an update to such petition to reflect the federal income tax law changes passed, which reduced the revenue increase IPL is seeking to $96.7 million, or 7.1%. We expect an order on this proceeding to be issued by the IURC by the first quarter of 2019.

DSM

On February 7, 2018, the IURC approved a settlement agreement establishing a new three year DSM plan for IPL through 2020. The approval included cost recovery of programs as well as performance incentives, depending on the level of success of the programs. The order also approved recovery of lost revenues, consistent with the provisions of the settlement agreement.

Taxes

On January 3, 2018, the IURC opened a generic investigation to review and consider the impacts from the TCJA and how any resulting benefits should be realized by customers. The IURC’s order opening this investigation directed Indiana utilities to apply regulatory accounting treatment, such as the use of regulatory assets and regulatory liabilities, for all estimated impacts resulting from the TCJA. On February 16, 2018, the IURC issued an order establishing two phases of the investigation. The first phase (“Phase I”) directs respondent utilities (including IPL) to make a filing to remove from respondents’ rates and charges for service, the impact of a lower federal income tax rate. The second phase (“Phase II”) was established to address remaining issues from the TCJA, including treatment of deferred taxes and how these benefits will be realized by customers. On March 5, 2018, IPL filed a motion to be dismissed from the generic investigation and to address these matters in its pending general rate case. The IURC approved IPL’s request with regard to Phase II issues, but denied the request for Phase I. On March 26, 2018, IPL complied with Phase I by filing a request for a subdocket to address the issues in Phase I of the investigation. The subdocket was granted on April 13, 2018, and IPL’s case-in-chief was filed on April 23, 2018. The ultimate result of these issues cannot be determined at this time, although it could be material.

3. FAIR VALUE
 
Fair Value Hierarchy
 
ASC 820 defined and established a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements for financial assets and liabilities that are adjusted to fair value on a recurring basis and/or financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis, which have been adjusted to fair value during the period. In accordance with ASC 820, we have categorized our financial assets and liabilities that are adjusted to fair value, based on the priority of the inputs to the valuation technique, following the three-level fair value hierarchy prescribed by ASC 820 as follows:
 
Level 1 - unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in an active market; 
 
Level 2 - inputs from quoted prices in markets where trading occurs infrequently or quoted prices of instruments with similar attributes in active markets; and 
 
Level 3 - unobservable inputs reflecting management’s own assumptions about the inputs used in pricing the asset or liability.
 

13


As of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, all of IPALCO’s financial assets or liabilities adjusted to fair value on a recurring basis (excluding pension assets – see Note 6, “Benefit Plans”) were considered Level 3, based on the above fair value hierarchy. These primarily consisted of FTRs, which are used to offset MISO congestion charges. Because the benefit associated with FTRs is a flow-through to IPL’s customers, IPL records a regulatory liability matching the value of the FTRs. These financial assets and liabilities were not material to the Financial Statements in the periods covered by this report, individually or in the aggregate.
 
Whenever possible, quoted prices in active markets are used to determine the fair value of our financial instruments. Our financial instruments are not held for trading or other speculative purposes. The estimated fair value of financial instruments has been determined by using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. However, considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value. Accordingly, the estimates presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts that we could realize in a current market exchange. The use of different market assumptions and/or estimation methodologies may have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts.

Non-Recurring Fair Value Measurements
 
ASC 410 “Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations” addresses financial accounting and reporting for legal obligations associated with the retirement of long-lived assets that result from acquisition, construction, development and/or normal operation. A legal obligation for purposes of ASC 410 is an obligation that a party is required to settle as a result of an existing law, statute, ordinance, written or oral contract or the doctrine of promissory estoppel. IPL’s ARO liabilities relate primarily to environmental issues involving asbestos-containing materials, ash ponds, landfills and miscellaneous contaminants associated with its generating plants, transmission system and distribution system. We use the cost approach to determine the fair value of IPL’s ARO liabilities, which is estimated by discounting expected cash outflows to their present value at the initial recording of the liabilities. Cash outflows are based on the approximate future disposal costs as determined by market information, historical information or other management estimates. These inputs to the fair value of the ARO liabilities would be considered Level 3 inputs under the fair value hierarchy. As of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, ARO liabilities were $79.5 million and $79.5 million, respectively. 

Financial Instruments not Measured at Fair Value in the Consolidated Balance Sheets
 
Debt
 
The fair value of our outstanding fixed-rate debt has been determined on the basis of the quoted market prices of the specific securities issued and outstanding. In certain circumstances, the market for such securities was inactive and therefore the valuation was adjusted to consider changes in market spreads for similar securities. Accordingly, the purpose of this disclosure is not to approximate the value on the basis of how the debt might be refinanced.

The following table shows the face value and the fair value of fixed-rate and variable-rate indebtedness (Level 2) for the periods ending:

IPALCO’s Senior Secured Notes

On November 13, 2017, IPALCO filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-4 with respect to an exchange of registered notes for its previously unregistered 2024 IPALCO Notes. This registration statement was declared effective on December 5, 2017, and the exchange offer was completed on January 12, 2018.

Line of Credit

As of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, IPL had $165.0 million and $148.0 million in outstanding borrowings on the committed line of credit, respectively. 

5. INCOME TAXES
 
U.S. Tax Reform

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. federal government enacted the TCJA. The TCJA significantly changes U.S. corporate income tax law. Notable items impacting the effective tax rate for the 2018 tax year related to the TCJA include a rate reduction in the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35% and an increase in the estimated flow-through depreciation partially offset by the repeal of the manufacturer’s production deduction.

Effective Tax Rate

IPALCO’s effective combined state and federal income tax rate was 18.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, as compared to 31.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2017. The decrease in the effective tax rate versus the comparable period was primarily due to the impact of the TCJA (as explained above).

In addition, IPL provides postretirement health care benefits to certain active or retired employees and the spouses of certain active or retired employees. These postretirement health care benefits and the related unfunded obligation of $7.1 million and $7.0 million at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively, were not material to the Financial Statements in the periods covered by this report.

7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
Legal Loss Contingencies
 
IPALCO and IPL are involved in litigation arising in the normal course of business. While the results of such litigation cannot be predicted with certainty, management believes that the final outcome will not have a material adverse effect on IPALCO’s results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. Amounts accrued or expensed for legal or environmental contingencies collectively during the periods covered by this report have not been material to the Financial Statements.
 
Environmental Loss Contingencies
 
We are subject to various federal, state, regional and local environmental protection and health and safety laws and regulations governing, among other things, the generation, storage, handling, use, disposal and transportation of hazardous materials; the emission and discharge of hazardous and other materials into the environment; and the health and safety of our employees. These laws and regulations often require a lengthy and complex process of obtaining and renewing permits and other governmental authorizations from federal, state and local agencies. Violation of these laws, regulations or permits can result in substantial fines, other sanctions, permit revocation and/or facility shutdowns. We cannot assure that we have been or will be at all times in full compliance with such laws, regulations and permits.
 
New Source Review and Other CAA NOVs
 
In October 2009, IPL received a NOV and Finding of Violation from the EPA pursuant to the CAA Section 113(a). The NOV alleges violations of the CAA at IPL’s three primarily coal-fired electric generating facilities at the time, dating back to 1986. The alleged violations primarily pertain to the PSD and nonattainment New Source Review requirements under the CAA. In addition, on October 1, 2015, IPL received a NOV from the EPA pursuant to CAA Section 113(a) alleging violations of the CAA, the Indiana SIP, and the Title V operating permit related to alleged particulate matter and opacity violations at IPL Petersburg Unit 3. Also, on February 5, 2016, the EPA issued a NOV pursuant to CAA Section 113(a) alleging violations of New Source Review and other CAA regulations, the Indiana SIP, and the Title V operating permit at Petersburg Generating Station. Since receiving the letters, IPL management has met with the EPA staff regarding possible resolutions of the NOVs. Settlements and litigated outcomes of similar New Source Review cases have required companies to pay civil penalties, install additional pollution control technology on coal-fired electric generating units, retire existing generating units, and invest in additional environmental projects. A similar outcome in these cases could have a material impact on our business. At this time,

17



we cannot determine whether these NOVs could have a material impact on our business, financial condition or results of operations. We would seek recovery of any operating or capital expenditures, but not fines or penalties, related to air pollution control technology to reduce regulated air emissions; however, there can be no assurances that we would be successful in this regard. IPL has recorded a contingent liability related to these New Source Review cases and other CAA NOV matters.

8. BUSINESS SEGMENT INFORMATION
 
Operating segments are components of an enterprise that engage in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, for which separate financial information is available, and is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in assessing performance and deciding how to allocate resources. Substantially all of our business consists of the generation, transmission, distribution and sale of electric energy conducted through IPL which is a vertically integrated electric utility. IPALCO’s reportable business segment is its utility segment, with all other nonutility business activities aggregated separately. The “All Other” nonutility category primarily includes the 2020 IPALCO Notes and the 2024 IPALCO Notes; approximately $4.6 million and $18.3 million of cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively; long-term investments of $4.0 million and $5.1 million at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively; and income taxes and interest related to those items. All other assets represented less than 1% of IPALCO’s total assets as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017. The accounting policies of the identified segment are consistent with those policies and procedures described in the summary of significant accounting policies. Intersegment sales, if any, are generally based on prices that reflect the current market conditions.

9. REVENUE

Revenue is primarily earned from retail and wholesale electricity sales and electricity transmission and distribution delivery services. Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Revenue is recorded net of any taxes assessed on and collected from customers, which are remitted to the governmental authorities.

Retail revenues - IPL energy sales to utility customers are based on the reading of meters at the customer’s location that occurs on a systematic basis throughout the month. IPL sells electricity directly to end-users, such as homes and businesses, and bills customers directly. Retail revenues have a single performance obligation, as the promise to transfer energy and other distribution and/or transmission services are not separately identifiable from other promises in the contracts and, therefore, are not distinct. Additionally, as the performance obligation is satisfied over time as energy is delivered, and the same method is used to measure progress, the performance obligation meets the criteria to be considered a series.

In exchange for the exclusive right to sell or distribute electricity in our service area, IPL is subject to rate regulation by federal and state regulators. This regulation sets the framework for the prices (“tariffs”) that IPL is allowed to charge customers for electric services. Since tariffs are approved by the regulator, the price that IPL has the right to bill corresponds directly with the value to the customer of IPL’s performance completed in each period. Therefore, revenue under these contracts is recognized using an output method measured by the MWhs delivered each month at the approved tariff. Customer payments are typically due on a monthly basis.

Wholesale revenues - Power produced at the generation stations in excess of our retail load is required to be sold into the MISO market at either the day-ahead or real time hourly market price, and these sales are classified as wholesale revenues. We sell to and purchase power from MISO, and such sales and purchases are settled and accounted for on a net hourly basis.

18




In the MISO market, wholesale revenue is recorded at the spot price based on the quantities of MWh delivered in each day or hour during each month. As a member of MISO, we are obligated to declare the availability of our energy production into the wholesale energy market, but we are not obligated to commit our previously declared availability. As such, contract terms end as the energy for each day is delivered to the market in the case of the day-ahead market and for each hour in the case of the real-time market.

Miscellaneous revenues - Miscellaneous revenues are mainly comprised of MISO transmission revenues. MISO transmission revenues are earned when IPL’s power lines are used in transmission of energy by power producers other than IPL. As IPL owns and operates transmission lines in central Indiana, demand charges collected from network customers by MISO are allocated to the appropriate transmission owners (including IPL) and recognized as transmission revenues.

Transmission revenues have a single performance obligation, as transmission services represent a distinct service. Additionally, as the performance obligation is satisfied over time and the same method is used to measure progress, the performance obligation meets the criteria to be considered a series. The price that the transmission operator has the right to bill corresponds directly with the value to the customer of IPL’s performance completed in each period as the price paid is the transmission operators allocation of the tariff rate (as approved by the regulator) charged to network participants.

IPL’s revenue from contracts with customers was $352.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The following table presents our revenue from contracts with customers and other revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2018 (in thousands):

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements and the notes thereto included in “Item 1. Financial Statements” included in Part I – Financial Information of this Form 10-Q. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements. Our actual results may differ materially from the results suggested by these forward-looking statements. Please see “Forward–Looking Statements” at the beginning of this Form 10-Q.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
The electric utility business is affected by seasonal weather patterns throughout the year and, therefore, operating revenues and associated expenses are not generated evenly by month during the year. 
 
Comparison of three months ended March 31, 2018 and three months ended March 31, 2017
 
Utility Operating Revenues
 
Utility operating revenues during the three months ended March 31, 2018 increased by $17.6 million compared to the same period in 2017, which resulted from the following changes (dollars in thousands):

The increase in retail revenues of $18.5 million was primarily due to an 8% increase in the volume of kWh sold ($17.6 million) and a slight net increase in the weighted average price per kWh sold ($0.9 million). The $17.6 million increase in the volume of kWh sold was primarily due to favorable weather in our service territory during the first quarter of 2018 versus the comparable period (as demonstrated by the 27% increase in heating degree days, as shown above). The $0.9 million increase in the weighted average price of retail kWh sold was primarily due to: (i) a $5.6 million increase in environmental rate adjustment mechanism revenues, (ii) a $5.5 million increase in fuel revenues, (iii) a $3.6 million increase in DSM program rate adjustment mechanism revenues and (iv) a $2.4 million increase in billings for the MISO, Capacity and Off System Sales riders; offset by (v) a $6.6 million decrease due to the deferral of revenue as a regulatory liability to adjust for the impacts of the TCJA on customer rates and charges for service in 2018 and (vi) unfavorable block rate and other retail rate variances of $9.6 million. The unfavorable block rate variances are mostly attributed to our declining block rate structure, which generally provides for residential and commercial customers to be charged a lower per kWh rate at higher consumption levels. Therefore, as volumes increase, the weighted average price per kWh decreases.

The decrease in wholesale revenues of $1.1 million was primarily due to a 45% decrease in the quantity of kWh sold primarily due to decreased unit availability as a result of increased outages and increased retail demand. We made 47.3 million kWh in wholesale sales during the first quarter of 2018 compared to 85.6 million kWh during the first quarter of 2017. Our ability to be dispatched in the MISO market is primarily driven by the locational marginal price of electricity and variable generation costs. The amount of electricity available for wholesale sales is impacted by our retail load requirements, generation capacity and unit

availability. Currently, 50% of IPL’s wholesale margins above and below an established annual benchmark of $6.3 million are shared with our retail customers through a rate rider.

Utility Operating Expenses
 
The following table illustrates our primary operating expense changes from the three months ended March 31, 2017 to the three months ended March 31, 2018 (dollars in millions):

The $7.2 million increase in purchased power costs was primarily due to (i) a 21% increase in the volume of power purchased during the period ($8.4 million) and (ii) a $1.3 million increase in the market price of purchased power; partially offset by (iii) a $2.9 million decrease in deferred purchased power costs. The volume of power purchased each period is primarily influenced by retail demand, generating unit capacity and outages, and the fact that at times it is less expensive to buy power in the market than to produce it. The market price of purchased power is influenced primarily by changes in the market price of delivered fuel (primarily natural gas), the price of environmental emissions allowances, the supply of and demand for electricity, and the time of day in which power is purchased. We are generally permitted to defer and recover underestimated purchased power costs to serve our retail customers in future rates through quarterly FAC proceedings. These variances are deferred when incurred and amortized into fuel expense in the same period that our rates are adjusted to reflect these variances.

The $6.9 million decrease in income taxes - net was primarily due to the decrease in the federal corporate income tax rate to 21% from 35% as a result of the TCJA signed into law in December 2017; partially offset by the tax effect of the increase in pre-tax net operating income versus the comparable period.

Maintenance expenses increased $3.5 million versus the comparable period primarily due to the timing and duration of outages (including a 58-day scheduled outage at our 415 MW Petersburg Generating Station Unit 2 that was in progress during the first quarter of 2018 and a 51-day outage at our 230 MW Petersburg Generating Station Unit 1 that was in progress during the first quarter of 2017).

The $2.9 million decrease in fuel costs was primarily due to (i) a $9.8 million decrease in deferred fuel costs; partially offset by (ii) a $4.4 million increase in the quantity of fuel consumed versus the comparable period and (iii) a $2.5 million increase due to the higher price of natural gas we consumed versus the comparable period. We are generally permitted to recover underestimated fuel and purchased power costs to serve our retail customers in future rates through quarterly FAC proceedings. These variances are deferred when incurred and amortized into expense in the same period that our rates are adjusted to reflect these variances.

The increase in depreciation and amortization costs of $2.8 million is primarily related to the impact of additional assets placed in service.

The increase in DSM program costs of $1.9 million, which are included in “Other operating expenses” on our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and are recoverable through customer rates, is correlated to an increase in DSM program rate adjustment mechanism retail revenues as a result of timing differences in spending patterns.

The increase in taxes other than income taxes of $1.5 million is mostly due to an increase in property tax expenses of $1.0 million as a result of an increase in the assessed property tax value as well as a slight increase in property tax rates.

MISO non-purchased power costs (which are primarily transmission related expenses) increased $1.4 million.

21



Other Income and Deductions

Other income and deductions decreased $4.7 million, from income of $10.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, to income of $5.5 million for the same period in 2018, reflecting a 46% decrease. This decrease was primarily due to (i) a decrease in the income tax benefit of $1.7 million, which was primarily due to the change in pretax nonoperating income during the comparable periods, (ii) a $1.3 million decrease in the allowance for equity funds used during construction as a result of decreased construction activity and (iii) a $1.2 million one-time pension curtailment charge recorded in March of 2018.

KEY TRENDS AND UNCERTAINTIES

During the remainder of 2018 and beyond, we expect that our financial results will be driven primarily by retail demand, weather, generating unit availability, outage costs and, to a lesser extent, wholesale and capacity prices. In addition, IPL’s financial results will likely be driven by many other factors including, but not limited to, the following:

rate case outcomes;
the timely completion of major construction projects (primarily the Eagle Valley CCGT) and recovery of capital expenditures through base rate growth; and
the passage of new legislation, implementation of regulations or other changes in regulation.

If favorable outcomes related to these factors do not occur, or if the challenges described below and elsewhere in this section impact us more significantly than we currently anticipate, or if commodities move unfavorably, then these adverse factors (or other adverse factors unknown to us) may impact our operating margin, net income and cash flows. We continue to monitor our operations and address challenges as they arise. For a discussion of the risks related to our business, see “Item 1. Business” and “Item 1A. Risk Factors” as described in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K.

Regulatory and Environmental

Please see Note 2, “Regulatory Matters” to the Financial Statements for an update on regulatory matters. We also are subject to numerous environmental laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate. We face certain risks and uncertainties related to these environmental laws and regulations, including existing and potential GHG legislation or regulations, and actual or potential laws and regulations pertaining to water discharges, waste management (including disposal or beneficial reuse of CCR) and certain air emissions, such as SO2, NOx, particulate matter and mercury. Such risks and uncertainties could result in increased capital expenditures or other compliance costs which could have a material adverse effect on our consolidated results of operations. Please see Note 7, “Commitments and Contingencies” to the Financial Statements for a description of certain environmental matters. In addition, the following discussion of the impact of environmental laws and regulations on the Company updates the discussion provided in “Item 1. Business - Regulatory Matters” and “Item 1. Business - Environmental Matters” in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K.

The DOE issued a Notice of Proposed Rule Making on September 29, 2017, which directed the FERC to exercise its authority to set just and reasonable rates that recognize the “resiliency” value provided by generation plants with certain characteristics, including having 90-days or more of on-site fuel and operating in markets where they do not receive rate base treatment through state ratemaking. On January 8, 2018, the FERC terminated this proceeding and established a new one soliciting comments from the RTOs regarding resiliency. RTO responses were submitted on March 9, 2018, but the timing and outcome of this proceeding, including effects on wholesale energy markets, remain uncertain.

Waste Management and CCR

The EPA’s final CCR rule became effective on October 19, 2015. Generally, the rule regulates CCR as nonhazardous solid waste and establishes national minimum criteria for existing and new CCR landfills and existing and new CCR surface impoundments (ash ponds), including location restrictions, design and operating criteria, groundwater-monitoring and corrective action, and closure requirements and post closure care. In addition, the results of required groundwater monitoring data could require corrective actions to be taken. On September 13, 2017, EPA indicated that it would reconsider certain provisions of the CCR Rule in response to two petitions it received to reconsider the final rule. On November 7, 2017, EPA requested that legal challenges be held in abeyance and certain provisions of the rule be remanded without vacatur. On March 15, 2018, EPA published proposed amendments to the CCR Rule. We are currently reviewing the proposal, which was open to public comment until April 30, 2018. EPA stated this proposal is the first of two amendments to the CCR rule, the second to be released later in 2018. The CCR rule, the current or future proposed amendments to the CCR rule, the results of groundwa

22


ter monitoring data, or the outcome of CCR litigation could have a material impact on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

The existing ash ponds at Petersburg did not meet certain structural stability requirements set forth in the CCR rule. As such,
IPL would have been required to cease use of the ash ponds by April 17, 2017. However, IDEM has granted IPL a variance
extending that deadline to November 1, 2018 for a portion of the ash pond system.

NAAQS

On March 12, 2018, the state of New York submitted a petition to the EPA pursuant to Section 126 of the CAA requesting new limitations on NOx emissions from dozens of upwind generating stations, including IPL Petersburg, Harding Street, and Eagle Valley on the basis that they are contributing significantly to New York’s ability to meet the 2008 ozone NAAQS. If this petition is granted, our units could be subject to additional requirements. We would seek recovery of any resulting capital expenditures; however, there is no guarantee we would be successful in this regard.

CAPITAL RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY
 
Overview

As of March 31, 2018, we had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $25.3 million and available borrowing capacity of $85.0 million under our $250 million unsecured revolving credit facility after accounting for outstanding borrowings and existing letters of credit. All of IPL’s long-term borrowings must first be approved by the IURC and the aggregate amount of IPL’s short-term indebtedness must be approved by the FERC. We have approval from FERC to borrow up to $500 million of short-term indebtedness outstanding at any time through July 27, 2018. In December 2015, we received an order from the IURC granting us authority through December 31, 2018 to, among other things, issue up to $650 million in aggregate principal amount of long-term debt and refinance up to $196.5 million in existing indebtedness. As of March 31, 2018, we have $106.5 million of total debt issuance authority remaining under this order. This order also grants us authority to have up to $500 million of long-term credit agreements and liquidity facilities outstanding at any one time, of which $250 million remains available under the order as of March 31, 2018. As an alternative to the sale of all or a portion of $65 million in principal of the long-term debt mentioned above, we have the authority to issue up to $65 million of new preferred stock, all of which authority remains available under the order as of March 31, 2018. We also have restrictions on the amount of new debt that may be issued due to contractual obligations of AES and by financial covenant restrictions under our existing debt obligations. We do not believe such restrictions will be a limiting factor in our ability to issue debt in the ordinary course of prudent business operations.

We believe that existing cash balances, cash generated from operating activities, and borrowing capacity on our committed credit facility will be adequate for the foreseeable future to meet anticipated operating expenses, interest expense on outstanding indebtedness, recurring capital expenditures, and to pay dividends to AES U.S. Investments and CDPQ. Sources for principal payments on outstanding indebtedness and nonrecurring capital expenditures are expected to be obtained from: (i) existing cash balances; (ii) cash generated from operating activities; (iii) borrowing capacity on our committed credit facility; and (iv) additional debt financing. From time to time, we may elect to repurchase our outstanding debt through cash purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise when management believes such repurchases are favorable to make. The amounts involved in any such repurchases may be material.

Capital Requirements
 
Capital Expenditures
 
Our construction program is composed of capital expenditures necessary for prudent utility operations and compliance with environmental laws and regulations, along with discretionary investments designed to replace aging equipment or improve overall performance. Construction expenditures during the first three months of 2018 and 2017 were financed primarily with internally generated cash provided by operations and borrowings on our credit facility.

Our capital expenditure program, including development and permitting costs, for the three-year period from 2018 through 2020 is currently estimated to cost approximately $614 million (excluding environmental compliance and replacement generation costs). It includes approximately $330 million for additions, improvements and extensions to transmission and distribution lines, substations, power factor and voltage regulating equipment, distribution transformers and street lighting facilities. The capital expenditure program also includes approximately $194 million for power plant-related projects and $90 million for other miscellaneous equipment.

IPL also plans to spend a total of $655 million (of which $626 million has been expended through March 31, 2018) on replacement generation costs through 2018 as a result of the retirement of existing facilities not equipped with advanced environmental control technologies required to comply with existing and expected regulations. The balance of $29 million is projected to be expended in 2018. Please see “Item 1. Business - Environmental Matters - Unit Retirements and Replacement Generation” as described in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K for more details.

Other environmental expenditures include costs for compliance with the NPDES permit program under the CWA. The costs for NPDES at our Petersburg station for 2018 are expected to be $13 million. IPL plans to spend a total of $224 million for this project (of which $213 million has been expended through March 31, 2018). The remaining costs are projected to be expended in 2018. Please see “Item 1. Business - Environmental Matters - Environmental Wastewater Requirements” as described in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K for more details.

IPL also has projects underway related to environmental compliance for CCR and NAAQS SO2. The costs for these projects in the 2018 through 2020 forecast are expected to be $23 million. IPL plans to spend a total of $76 million for these projects (of which $60 million has been expended through March 31, 2018). Please see “Item 1. Business - Environmental Matters - Waste Management and CCR” and “Item 1. Business - Environmental Matters - NAAQS” as described in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K for more details.

Other environmental capital spending for the period 2018 through 2020 includes spending for studies related to cooling water intake requirements in sections 316(a) and 316(b) of the CWA, NAAQS Ozone and Office of Surface Mining totaling $68 million. Please see “Item 1. Business - Environmental Matters - Cooling Water Intake Regulations” as described in IPALCO’s 2017 Form 10-K for more details.

Credit Ratings

Our ability to borrow money or to refinance existing indebtedness and the interest rates at which we can borrow money or refinance existing indebtedness are affected by our credit ratings. In addition, the applicable interest rates on IPL’s $250 million unsecured revolving credit facility and other unsecured notes (as well as the amount of certain other fees in the Credit Agreement) are dependent upon the credit ratings of IPL. Downgrades in the credit ratings of AES could result in IPL’s and/or IPALCO’s credit ratings being downgraded. Any reduction in our debt or credit ratings may adversely affect the trading price of our outstanding debt securities.

A security rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities. Such ratings may be subject to revision or withdrawal at any time by the assigning rating organization, and each rating should be evaluated independently of any other rating.

Dividend Distributions
 
All of IPALCO’s outstanding common stock is held by AES U.S. Investments and CDPQ. During the first three months of 2018 and 2017, IPALCO paid $25.3 million and $25.1 million, respectively, in dividends to its shareholders. Future distributions to our shareholders will be determined at the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend primarily on dividends received from IPL. Dividends from IPL are affected by IPL’s actual results of operations, financial condition, cash flows, capital requirements, regulatory considerations, and such other factors as IPL’s Board of Directors deems relevant.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURE ABOUT MARKET RISK 
 
There have been no material changes to our quantitative and qualitative disclosure about market risk as previously disclosed in the 2017 Form 10-K.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures — The Company, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer “CFO”), evaluated the effectiveness of its “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on that evaluation, our CEO and CFO have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2018, to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in such reports is accumulated and
communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting — There were no changes that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

These laws and regulations often require a lengthy and complex process of obtaining and renewing permits and other governmental authorizations from federal, state and local agencies. Violation of these laws, regulations or permits can result in substantial fines, other sanctions, permit revocation and/or facility shutdowns.

The NOV alleges violations of the CAA at IPL&#8217;s </font><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">three</font><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;"> primarily coal-fired electric generating facilities at the time, dating back to 1986. The alleged violations primarily pertain to the PSD and nonattainment New Source Review requirements under the CAA. In addition, on October 1, 2015, IPL received a NOV from the EPA pursuant to CAA Section 113(a) alleging violations of the CAA, the Indiana SIP, and the Title V operating permit related to alleged particulate matter and opacity violations at IPL Petersburg Unit 3. Also, on February 5, 2016, the EPA issued a NOV pursuant to CAA Section 113(a) alleging violations of New Source Review and other CAA regulations, the Indiana SIP, and the Title V operating permit at Petersburg Generating Station. Since receiving the letters, IPL management has met with the EPA staff regarding possible resolutions of the NOVs. Settlements and litigated outcomes of similar New Source Review cases have required companies to pay civil penalties, install additional pollution control technology on coal-fired electric generating units, retire existing generating units, and invest in additional environmental projects. A similar outcome in these cases could have a material impact on our business. At this time, we cannot determine whether these NOVs could have a material impact on our business, financial condition or results of operations. We would seek recovery of any operating or capital expenditures, but not fines or penalties, related to air pollution control technology to reduce regulated air emissions; however, there can be no assurances that we would be successful in this regard. IPL has recorded a contingent liability related to these New Source Review cases and other CAA NOV matters.</font></div></div> <div style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:10pt;"><div style="line-height:120%;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;font-weight:bold;">Principles of Consolidation</font></div><div style="line-height:120%;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">&#160;</font></div><div style="line-height:120%;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">The accompanying Financial Statements include the accounts of IPALCO, IPL and Mid-America Capital Resources, Inc., a non-regulated wholly-owned subsidiary of IPALCO.

A legal obligation for purposes of ASC 410 is an obligation that a party is required to settle as a result of an existing law, statute, ordinance, written or oral contract or the doctrine of promissory estoppel. IPL&#8217;s ARO liabilities relate primarily to environmental issues involving asbestos-containing materials, ash ponds, landfills and miscellaneous contaminants associated with its generating plants, transmission system and distribution system. We use the cost approach to determine the fair value of IPL&#8217;s ARO liabilities, which is estimated by discounting expected cash outflows to their present value at the initial recording of the liabilities. Cash outflows are based on the approximate future disposal costs as determined by market information, historical information or other management estimates. These inputs to the fair value of the ARO liabilities would be considered Level 3 inputs under the fair value hierarchy.

The FASB proposed amending the standard to give another option for transition. The proposed transition method would allow entities to not apply the new lease standard in the comparative periods presented in their financial statements in the year of adoption. Under the proposed transition method, the entity would apply the transition provisions on January 1, 2019 (i.e., the effective date). At transition, lessees and lessors are permitted to make an election to apply a package of practical expedients that allow them not to reassess: (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) whether initial direct costs for any expired or existing leases qualify for capitalization under ASC 842. These three practical expedients must be elected as a package and must be consistently applied to all leases. Furthermore, entities are also permitted to make an election to use hindsight when determining lease term and lessees can elect to use hindsight when assessing the impairment of right-of-use assets.</font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;"><br clear="none"/></font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">The Company has established a task force focused on the identification of contracts that would be under the scope of the new standard and on the assessment and measurement of the right-of-use asset and related liability. Additionally, the implementation team has been working on the configuration of a lease accounting system that will support the implementation and the subsequent accounting. The implementation team is in the process of evaluating changes to our business processes, systems and controls to support recognition and disclosure under the new standard.</font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;"><br clear="none"/></font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">As the Company has preliminarily concluded that at transition it would be using the package of practical expedients, the main impact expected as of the effective date is the recognition of the right to use asset and the related liability in the financial statements for all those contracts that contain a lease and for which the Company is the lessee. However, income statement presentation and the expense recognition pattern will not change. </font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:Arial;font-size:10pt;"><br clear="none"/></font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">Under ASC 842, it is expected that fewer contracts will contain a lease. However, due to the elimination of today's real estate-specific guidance and changes to certain lessor classification criteria, more leases will qualify as sales-type leases and direct financing leases. Under these two models, a lessor will derecognize the asset and will recognize a lease receivable. According to ASC 842, the lease receivable does not include variable payments that depend on the use of the asset (e.g. MWh produced by a facility). Therefore, the lease receivable could be lower than the carrying amount of the underlying asset at lease commencement. In such circumstances, the difference between the initially recognized lease receivable and the carrying amount of the underlying asset is recognized as a selling loss at lease commencement.

Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Revenue is recorded net of any taxes assessed on and collected from customers, which are remitted to the governmental authorities.</font></div><div style="line-height:120%;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;"><br clear="none"/></font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;font-style:italic;">Retail revenues </font><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">- IPL energy sales to utility customers are based on the reading of meters at the customer&#8217;s location that occurs on a systematic basis throughout the month. IPL sells electricity directly to end-users, such as homes and businesses, and bills customers directly. Retail revenues have a single performance obligation, as the promise to transfer energy and other distribution and/or transmission services are not separately identifiable from other promises in the contracts and, therefore, are not distinct. Additionally, as the performance obligation is satisfied over time as energy is delivered, and the same method is used to measure progress, the performance obligation meets the criteria to be considered a series. </font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;"><br clear="none"/></font></div><div style="line-height:120%;text-align:left;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">In exchange for the exclusive right to sell or distribute electricity in our service area, IPL is subject to rate regulation by federal and state regulators. This regulation sets the framework for the prices (&#8220;tariffs&#8221;) that IPL</font><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;font-weight:bold;"> </font><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;">is allowed to charge customers for electric services. Since tariffs are approved by the regulator, the price that IPL has the right to bill corresponds directly with the value to the customer of IPL&#8217;s performance completed in each period. Therefore, revenue under these contracts is recognized using an output method measured by the MWhs delivered each month at the approved tariff. Customer payments are typically due on a monthly basis.</font></div><div style="line-height:120%;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:Arial;font-size:10pt;"><br clear="none"/></font></div><div style="line-height:120%;font-size:10pt;"><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;font-style:italic;">Wholesale revenues</font><font style="font-family:inherit;font-size:10pt;"> - Power produced at the generation stations in excess of our retail load is required to be sold into the MISO market at either the day-ahead or real time hourly market price, and these sales are classified as wholesale revenues.

As a member of MISO, we are obligated to declare the availability of our energy production into the wholesale energy market, but we are not obligated to commit our previously declared availability.

MISO transmission revenues are earned when IPL&#8217;s power lines are used in transmission of energy by power producers other than IPL.
