With three quarters of the year behind us, I am pleased to report that our anticipated non-GAAP temperature normalized earnings for fiscal year 2017 are in line with the original midpoint of our 2017 earnings guidance. However, taking into account year-to-date temperatures, which resulted in an estimated $0.06 per share of lower earnings, we are updating 2017 adjusted earnings per share guidance to a midpoint of $1.93,” said Patricia Kampling, Alliant Energy Chairman, President and CEO. “Looking forward to next year, I am pleased to announce the Board of Directors has approved a 6% increase to our annual common stock dividend target.
