The decrease in non GAAP core earnings per share was primarily driven by the absence of 2018 short term incentive compensation, 2019 interest on pre petition payables and short term debt, and 2019 vegetation management costs.
The decrease in non GAAP core earnings per share was partially offset by the probable recovery of 2019 insurance premiums above amounts included in authorized revenue requirements and by the growth in rate base earnings.
Pacific Gas and Electric believes it remains on track to have its Chapter 11 Plan confirmed by June 30, 2020, the deadline for participating in the state's new wildfire fund under the terms of Assembly Bill ("AB") 1054.
Pacific Gas and Electric has provided 2020 non-core items guidance of about $1.4 billion after tax for Chapter 11 related costs, wildfire fund-related costs, investigation remedies and delayed cost recoveries, and GT&S capital audit. ■
