Enbridge Inc. said Friday that profit fell in the second quarter, though not by as much as analysts had anticipated, and that it remains on track to meet its full-year guidance.
The Calgary-based pipeline company said earnings per share were 69 Canadian cents (55 U.S. cents), down from C$0.82 a year earlier.
Net income was C$1.4 billion, compared with C$1.6 billion, it said.
Adjusted earnings were C$0.67 a share, beating analyst expectations of C$0.57 a share, taken from FactSet, while adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization remained flat at C$3.3 billion.
The company said it is on track to bring C$10 billion of projects into service this year and reaffirms its full-year 2021 financial guidance.
"Our secured growth execution and embedded asset growth gives us confidence that we'll generate 5% to 7% distributable cash flow growth through 2023, and we're continuing to advance strategic priorities across each of our franchises," President and Chief Executive Officer Al Monaco said.
