2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Business Description

Industry: Utilities - Regulated » Utilities - Regulated Electric
Compare:WR, EE, ENI, NGG, DTE » details
Traded in other countries:HWI.Germany,
Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. was incorporated in 1981 under the laws of the State of Hawaii and is a holding company with its principal subsidiaries engaged in the electric utility, banking and other businesses operating primarily in the State of Hawaii. HEI's predecessor, Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the Kingdom of Hawaii on October 13, 1891. As a result of a 1983 corporate reorganization, HECO became an HEI subsidiary. HECO and its operating subsidiaries, Maui Electric Company, Limited and Hawaii Electric Light Company, Inc., are regulated electric public utilities providing the only electric public utility service on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Hawaii. HECO, MECO and HELCO are regulated operating electric public utilities engaged in the production, purchase, transmission, distribution and sale of electricity on the islands of Oahu; Maui, Lanai and Molokai; and Hawaii, respectively. HECO has 138 kV transmission and 46 kV sub-transmission lines. HELCO has 69 kV transmission and 34.5 kV transmission and sub-transmission lines. MECO has 69 kV transmission and 23 kV sub-transmission lines on Maui and 34.5 kV transmission lines on Molokai. Lanai has no transmission lines and uses 12 kV lines to distribute electricity. The electric utilities' overhead and underground transmission and sub-transmission lines, as well as their distribution lines, are uninsured because the amount of insurance available is limited and the premiums are extremely high. The Company's three strategic objectives, currently, are to operate the electric utility and bank subsidiaries for long-term growth, maintain the annual dividend and increase the Company's financial flexibility by strengthening the balance sheet and maintaining credit ratings. The Company has supported state and federal energy policies which encourage the development of alternate energy sources that reduce the use of fuel oil. The Company's alternate energy sources range from wind, geothermal and hydroelectric power, to energy produced by the burning of bagasse, municipal waste and coal. The capital projects of the electric utilities may face various approval and permitting processes, including obtaining PUC approval of the project, air permits from the DOH and/or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, land use permits from the Hawaii Board of Land and Natural Resources and land use entitlements from the applicable county. HEI and HECO were exempt from the comprehensive regulation of the SEC under the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935.
