Evergy Inc. EVRG is scheduled to release third-quarter 2023 results on Nov 7, before market open. The company delivered an earnings surprise of 2.53% in the last reported quarter.

Factors to Consider

EVRG’s third-quarter revenues are expected to have benefited from improved regional rate competitiveness and new loads as a result of reshoring. The ongoing cost-saving initiatives are likely to have lowered operating and maintenance expenses. Our model predicts operating and maintenance expenses of $218.7 million, down 17.9% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.  

However, severe storms hit some areas served by Evergy. This might have resulted in outages for the customers, thereby reducing its electricity demand and, in turn, its quarterly top line. This, along with higher interest expenses, is likely to have adversely impacted its bottom-line performance.

Q3 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings is pegged at $1.77 per share, indicating a year-over-year decrease of 11.9%.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pinned at $1.63 billion, implying a year-over-year decline of 14.6%.
