Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Net income attributable to ALLETE in 2021 was $169.2 million, or $3.23 per diluted share, compared to $174.2 million, or $3.35 per diluted share, in 2020. Net income in 2021 included South Shore Energy’s sale of a portion of its interest in NTEC to Basin Electric Cooperative. The closing of the transaction between South Shore Energy and Basin resulted in the recognition of an approximately $8.5 million after-tax gain, or $0.16 per share, related to prior development costs and risks incurred. Net income in 2021 also included an approximately $5 million after-tax, or $0.10 per share, negative impact related to ALLETE Clean Energy’s Diamond Spring wind energy facility due to an extreme winter storm event in the southwest United States in February 2021. This winter storm event caused volatility in power prices in the regional power market resulting in losses being incurred under one of the facility’s power sales agreements during portions of the winter storm event. Additionally, net income in 2021 included a $3.6 million after-tax, or $0.07 per share, charge resulting from the MPUC’s decision to order refunds in Minnesota Power’s fuel adjustment clause filing covering the period July 2018 through December 2019. Net income in 2020 included margins of $10.2 million after-tax, or $0.20 per share, in Regulated Operations for sales under a 100 MW PSA which expired in April 2020. Net income in 2020 also included reserves for interim rates of $8.3 million after-tax, or $0.16 per share, for the refund of interim rates collected between January 1, 2020, and April 30, 2020. Earnings per share dilution in 2021 was $0.03 due to additional shares of common stock outstanding as of December 31, 2021.
