CMS ENERGY CORP: Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Settlement FD Disclosure (Form 8-K)

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

At February 3, 2022, CMS Energy Company (“CMS Energy”) issued a press release announcing its 2021 results. A copy of CMS Energy’s press release, provided as part of this report, is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.

Exhibit 99.1 contains certain financial measures that are considered “non-GAAP financial measures” within the meaning of Security and Exchange Commission rules. In addition to the forward-looking earnings guidance, Exhibit 99.1 contains a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in United States. Adjustments may include items such as discontinued operations, asset sales, impairments, restructuring costs, changes in accounting principles, changes in federal tax policy, regulatory items from prior years, gains or unrealized losses from mark-to-market adjustments recognized in net income related to CMS Companies
interest charges or other items. Management views Adjusted Earnings as a key measure of the Company’s current operating financial performance and uses Adjusted Earnings for external communications with analysts and investors. Internally, the company uses adjusted earnings to measure and evaluate performance. Because CMS Energy is unable to estimate the impact of specific items, which have the potential to have a material impact, favorable or unfavorable, on reported earnings in future periods, note 99.1 does not contain any guidance on reported earnings or reconciliation for comparable earnings in future periods. Adjusted earnings should be viewed as supplemental information to help understand our business results, rather than a substitute for reported earnings. All references to net earnings are to net earnings available to common shareholders and references to earnings per share are on a diluted basis.
