Regulation FD Disclosure


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

Members of management will provide an overview of Vectren Corporation's utility and nonutility businesses and key strategies for growth on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 to the financial community. The accompanying slides to be used in this presentation and in discussions with various members of the financial community, are attached as an exhibit to this filing as Exhibit 99.1.

Vectren Corporation (the "Company") is the parent company of Vectren Utility Holdings, Inc. (Utility Holdings) and Vectren Enterprises, Inc. (Enterprises). Utility Holdings is the intermediate holding company of the Company's three operating public utilities, and Enterprises is the holding company for the company's nonutility operations.

Management uses consolidated net income, consolidated earnings per share, and Nonutility Group net income, excluding ProLiance results, to evaluate its results. Management believes analyzing underlying and ongoing business trends is aided by the removal of the ProLiance results and the rationale for using such non-GAAP measures is that, through the disposition by ProLiance of certain ProLiance Energy assets, the Company has now exited the gas marketing business. A material limitation associated with the use of these measures is that the measures that exclude ProLiance results do not include all costs recognized in accordance with GAAP. Management compensates for this limitation by prominently displaying a reconciliation of these non-GAAP performance measures to their closest GAAP performance measures. This display also provides financial statement users the option of analyzing results as management does or by analyzing GAAP results.

Per share earnings contributions of the Utility Group, Nonutility Group excluding ProLiance results, and Corporate and Other are presented and are non-GAAP measures. Such per share amounts are based on the earnings contribution of each group included in Vectren's consolidated results divided by Vectren's basic average shares outstanding during the period. The earnings per share of the groups do not represent a direct legal interest in the assets and liabilities allocated to the groups, but rather represent a direct equity interest in Vectren Corporation's assets and liabilities as a whole. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to evaluate the performance of individual businesses. In addition, other items giving rise to period over period variances, such as weather, may be presented on an after tax and per share basis. These amounts are calculated at a statutory tax rate divided by Vectren's basic average shares outstanding during the period. Accordingly, management believes these measures are useful to investors in understanding each business' contribution to consolidated earnings per share and in analyzing consolidated period to period changes and the potential for earnings per share contributions in future periods. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to their most closely related GAAP measure of consolidated earnings per share are included throughout this discussion and analysis. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP.

In connection with the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the Company is hereby furnishing cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results of the Company and its subsidiaries, including Vectren Utility Holdings, Inc., to differ materially from those projected in forward-looking statements of the Company and its subsidiaries made by, or on behalf of, the Company and its subsidiaries. These cautionary statements are attached as Exhibit 99.2.

The information contained herein and in the attached slides shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
