CMS Energy Announces Strong Third Quarter Results, Raises 2022 Adjusted EPS, Introduces Preliminary 2023 Guidance

JACKSON, Mich., Oct. 27, 2022 - CMS Energy announced today reported earnings per share of $0.56 for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $0.64 per share for the same quarter in 2021. The company's adjusted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2022 were $0.56, compared to $0.54 per share for the same quarter in 2021. For the first nine months of 2022, the company reported $2.27 per share compared to $2.46 per share for the same period in 2021. On an adjusted earnings per share basis year-to-date, the company reported $2.29 per share in 2022, compared to $2.18 per share in 2021.

CMS Energy raised its 2022 adjusted earnings guidance to $2.87 to $2.89 per share, from $2.85 to $2.89 per share* (*See below for important information about non-GAAP measures). CMS Energy also introduced preliminary 2023 adjusted earnings guidance of $3.05 to $3.11 per share and reaffirmed its long-term adjusted EPS growth of 6 to 8 percent, with continued confidence toward the high end.

"CMS had another strong quarter and continues to execute well on all fronts, positioning us solidly for the fourth quarter and 2023," said Garrick Rochow, President and CEO of CMS Energy and Consumers Energy. "We had several accomplishments during the period - most notably in economic development through the commitment by Gotion, a global electric vehicle battery manufacturer, to build a factory in our service territory, which builds our customer base and helps Michigan grow."

CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS) is a Michigan-based energy provider featuring Consumers Energy as its primary business. It also owns and operates independent power generation businesses.

Important information for investors about non-GAAP measures and other disclosures.

This news release contains non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (non-GAAP) measures, such as adjusted earnings. All references to net income refer to net income available to common stockholders and references to earnings per share are on a diluted basis. Adjustments could 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, unrealized gains or losses from mark-to-market adjustmentsrecognized in net income related to NorthStar Clean Energy's interest expense, or other items. Management views adjusted earnings as a key measure of the company's present operating financial performance and uses adjusted earnings for external communications with analysts and investors. Internally, the company uses adjusted earnings to measure and assess performance. Because the company is not able to estimate the impact of specific line items, which have the potential to significantly impact, favorably or unfavorably, the company's reported earnings in future periods, the company is not providing reported earnings guidance nor is it providing a reconciliation for the comparable future period earnings. The company's adjusted earnings should be considered supplemental information to assist in understanding our business results, rather than as a substitute for the reported earnings.

This news release contains "forward-looking statements." The forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause CMS Energy's and Consumers Energy's results to differ materially. All forward-looking statements should be considered in the context of the risk and other factors detailed from time to time in CMS Energy's and Consumers Energy's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Investors and others should note that CMS Energy routinely posts important information on its website and considers the Investor Relations section, www.cmsenergy.com/investor-relations, a channel of distribution.
