Q3 2013 Earnings Call Transcript

Transcript Call Date 11/12/2013

Operator: Good day, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Third Quarter 2013 NRG Energy Incorporated Earnings Conference Call. My name is Juneta, and I will be your coordinator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will facilitate a question-and-answer session towards the end of the presentation. As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes.

I would now like to turn the presentation over to, Mr. Chad Plotkin, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please proceed.

Chad Plotkin - IR: Thank you, Juneta, and good morning, everyone. I'd like to welcome you to NRG's third quarter 2013 earnings call. This morning's call is being broadcast live over the phone and via webcast, which can be located on our website at www.nrgenergy.com. You can access the call, associated presentation material, as well as the replay of the call in the Investor Relations section of our website. Because this call including the presentation and Q&A session will be limited to one hour, we please ask that you limit yourself to only one question with just one follow-up.

In addition, as this is the earnings call for NRG Energy, any statements made on this call that may pertain to NRG Yield will be provided from NRG's perspective. Before we begin, I urge everyone to review the Safe Harbor statement provided in today's presentation which explains the risks and uncertainties associated with future events and the forward-looking statements made in today's press release and presentation material. We caution you to consider the important risk factors contained in our press release and other filings with the SEC that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements in the press release and this conference call.

In addition, please note that the date of this conference call is Tuesday, November 12, 2013, and any forward-looking statements that we make today are based on assumptions that we believe to be reasonable as of this date. We undertake no obligation to update these statements as a result of future events, except as required by law.

During this morning's call, we will refer to both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's, the operating and financial results. For complete information regarding our non-GAAP financial information, the most directly comparable GAAP measures and a quantitative reconciliation of those figures, please refer to today's press release and this presentation.

With that, I would like to turn the call over to David Crane, NRG's President and Chief Executive Officer.

David Crane - President and CEO: Thank you, Chad, and good morning, everyone. Thank you for joining us. I know many of you have taken time out of your schedule from the EI Conference in Orlando. So, I thank you in particular for joining us, and I think you should consider yourself lucky that you are in Orlando because it's snowing up here in Princeton, New Jersey.

I'm sure many of you will likely dialed back later in the morning for the first ever NRG Yield earnings call, so we're going to try and be very brief in our remarks on both calls today. Joining me here for the NRG call are Jim Steffes and Elizabeth Killinger who run our Northeast Retail and Texas Retail businesses respectively. Chris Moser, who runs our Commercial Operations, all three of them will be available to answer any specific questions you might have in their areas. Plus of course, I'm joined by Kirk Andrews, our Chief Financial Officer and Mauricio Gutierrez, our Chief Operating Officer. They will both be presenting after me and then also available to answer your questions.
