Financial and Operating Highlights

-- Results

Continued to experience favorable pricing environment allowing Vistra the opportunity to lock in future value through the continued execution of its comprehensive hedging strategy. Driven by the material increase in forward power prices, which requires Vistra to record the current non-cash, unrealized impact of mark-to-market hedging losses for GAAP purposes, recorded second quarter 2022 Net Loss of $(1,357) million and Net Loss from Ongoing Operations1 of $(1,312) million. The second quarter 2022 Net Loss includes $(1,987) million of such unrealized losses from mark-to-market valuations of commodity positions, the net impacts of which are not expected to be realized in future quarters assuming the company fulfills its obligations through normal course operations. - Delivered second quarter 2022 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA1 of $761 million. Full year results tracking above midpoint for 2022 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA1 and Ongoing Operations Adjusted FCFbG1 guidance ranges of $2,810 million to $3,310 million and $2,070 million to $2,570 million, respectively. - Continued executing on comprehensive hedging program, locking in significant value opportunities in future years. As of June 30, 2022, Vistra has hedged over 60% of its expected generation volumes on average for the three -year period 2023 to 2025, with 2023 hedged at approximately 80%. - Vistra's hedging program supports Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA mid-point opportunities in the range of $3,500 million to $3,700 million in years 2023 to 2025.2 - Achieved best residential customer growth in a quarter for TXU Energy in nearly 15 years, also achieved 95% commercial availability3 in an unseasonably warm second quarter.

-- Return of Capital

Executed approximately $1.6 billion of the originally authorized $2 billion share repurchase program as of Aug. 2, 2022, with such repurchases representing approximately 14.6% of the shares outstanding as of Nov. 2, 2021. We expect to execute the remaining portion of the $2 billion authorization before year-end 2022. Accordingly, the board of directors has authorized an incremental $1.25 billion for share repurchases effective immediately. We now have approximately $1.65 billion of authorization remaining for share repurchases, which we expect to utilize between now and year-end 2023. Taken together, the board has authorized a cumulative $3.25 billion in share repurchases since Vistra announced its capital allocation plan in Nov. 2021. - Declared third quarter 2022 dividend of $0.184 per share of common stock, representing an approximately 23% increase from the company's third quarter 2021 dividend; paid a second quarter 2022 dividend of $0.177 per share of common stock on June 30, 2022.

"Our comprehensive hedging strategy continues to lock in significant potential value in the outer years 2023-2025. This plan combined with our operational performance has increased our confidence in the outlook for 2022 and beyond. The authorization of the incremental $1.25 billion for share repurchases is a testament to the confidence that the board and management have in Vistra's future. We are committed to providing the power that the electric grid and our customers need, growing our Vistra Zero portfolio, all while driving significant shareholder value."

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, Vistra reported Net Loss of $(1,357) million, Net Loss from Ongoing Operations1 of $(1,312) million, and Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA1 of $761 million. Vistra's second quarter 2022 Net Loss of $(1,357) million reflects a change of $(1,392) million as compared second quarter 2021 Net Income of $35 million, driven by the GAAP accounting impacts of approximately $2 billion of mark-to-market non-cash, unrealized hedging losses in second quarter 2022 recorded solely as a result of a material increase in forward power prices. Vistra's second quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA from Ongoing Operations was $93 million lower than second quarter 2021 results2, primarily driven by the positive impacts of self-help initiatives in second quarter 2021 that were one-time benefits.

Vistra reported second quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA from Ongoing Operations from the Retail segment of $403 million, approximately $107 million lower than second quarter 2021 results, driven by the impact of the above-referenced self-help initiatives in second quarter 2021 that were one-time benefits, offset by favorable margins, residential customer counts and weather in Texas in second quarter 2022. Second quarter 2022 Adjusted EBITDA from Ongoing Operations from the generation segments3, on an aggregate basis, totaled $358 million, $14 million higher than second quarter 2021 results2 driven primarily by impacts of favorable pricing offset by coal constraints and one-time benefits of self-help initiatives in second quarter 2021.

(1) Excludes the Asset Closure segment. Net Income (Loss) from Ongoing Operations, Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA, and Ongoing Operations Adjusted FCFbG are non-GAAP financial measures. See the "Non-GAAP Reconciliation" tables for further detail. Total by segment may not tie due to rounding.
(2) Q2 2021 Ongoing Operations Net Income increased $178 million and Q2 2021 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA increased by $29 million due to the recast of Joppa Power Plant and Zimmer Power Plant, both ceasing operations in 2022, to the Asset Closure segment. Six months ended June 30, 2021 Ongoing Operations Net Income increased $226 million and six months ended June 30, 2021 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA increased $48 due to the recast of Joppa Power Plant and Zimmer Power Plant to the Asset Closure segment.
(3) Includes Texas, East, West, Sunset, and Corp./Other.

Share Repurchase Program

As of Aug. 2, 2022, Vistra has completed approximately $1.6 billion in share repurchases under its existing $2 billion share repurchase program. Vistra has purchased approximately 70.5 million shares since Nov. 2, 2021, representing approximately 14.6% of the shares outstanding at that time. Taking into account the incremental $1.25 billion authorization, approximately $1.65 billion remains available for execution under the program, which we expect to execute by year-end 2023.

Liquidity

As of June 30, 2022, Vistra had total available liquidity of approximately $3,439 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $1,871 million, $368 million of availability under its corporate revolving credit facility, and $1,200 million of availability under its commodity-linked revolving credit facility assuming the borrowing base equals the aggregate commitments of $2.25 billion.

Earnings Webcast

Vistra will host a webcast today, Aug. 5, 2022, beginning at 8 a.m. ET (7 a.m. CT) to discuss these results and related matters. The live webcast and the accompanying slides that will be discussed on the call can be accessed via Vistra's website at www.vistracorp.com under "Investor Relations" and then "Events & Presentations."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Items Affecting Comparability

"Adjusted EBITDA" (EBITDA as adjusted for unrealized gains or losses from hedging activities, tax receivable agreement impacts, reorganization items, and certain other items described from time to time in Vistra's earnings releases), "Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth" (or "Adjusted FCFbG") (cash from operating activities excluding changes in margin deposits and working capital and adjusted for capital expenditures (including capital expenditures for growth investments), other net investment activities, and other items described from time to time in Vistra's earnings releases), "Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA" (adjusted EBITDA less adjusted EBITDA from Asset Closure segment), "Net Income (Loss) from Ongoing Operations" (net income less net income from Asset Closure segment), "Ongoing Operations Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth" or "Ongoing Operations Adjusted FCFbG" (adjusted free cash flow before growth less cash flow from operating activities from Asset Closure segment before growth), are "non-GAAP financial measures." A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in Vistra's consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders' equity and cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Vistra's non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

Vistra uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance and believes that analysis of its business by external users is enhanced by visibility to both Net Income prepared in accordance with GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA. Vistra uses Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth as a measure of liquidity and believes that analysis of its ability to service its cash obligations is supported by disclosure of both cash provided by (used in) operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP as well as Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth. Vistra uses Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance and Ongoing Operations Adjusted Free Cash Flow before Growth as a measure of liquidity, and Vistra's management and Board have found it informative to view the Asset Closure segment as separate and distinct from Vistra's ongoing operations. Vistra uses Net Income (Loss) from Ongoing Operations as a non-GAAP measure that is most comparable to the GAAP measure Net Income in order to illustrate the company's Net Income excluding the effects of the Asset Closure segment, as well as a measure to compare to Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA. The schedules attached to this earnings release reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(c) Includes the application of bill credits to large commercial and industrial customers that curtailed their usage during Winter Storm Uri and a reduction in the allocation of ERCOT default uplift charges which are expected to be paid over several decades under current protocols.  We estimate bill credit amounts to be applied in future periods are for the remainder of 2022 (approximately $82 million), 2023 (approximately $44 million), 2024 (approximately $39 million) and 2025 (approximately $1 million).

(c) Includes the following of the Winter Storm Uri impacts, which we believe are not reflective of our operating performance: future bill credits related to Winter Storm Uri, partially offset by the allocation of additional ERCOT default uplift charges, which are expected to be paid over several decades under current protocols, and Winter Storm Uri related legal fees and other costs.  The adjustment for future bill credits relates to large commercial and industrial customers that curtailed their usage during Winter Storm Uri and will reverse and impact Adjusted EBITDA in future periods as the credits are applied to customer bills.  The Company believes the inclusion of the bill credits as a reduction to Adjusted EBITDA in the years in which such bill credits are applied more accurately reflects its operating performance.
(d) Q2 2021 Ongoing Operations Adjusted EBITDA increased by $29 million due to the recast of Joppa Power Plant and Zimmer Power Plant, both ceasing operations in 2022, to the Asset Closure segment.

1 Regulation G Table for 2022 Guidance prepared as of November 5, 2021.
(a)     Includes unrealized (gain) / loss on interest rate swaps of ($50) million.
(b)     Includes nuclear fuel amortization of $88 million.
(c)     Adjustment for bill credits applied to large commercial and industrial customers that curtailed during 2021 Winter Storm Uri. We estimate the amounts to be applied in future years are 2023 (approximately $84 million), 2024 (approximately $18 million) and 2025 (approximately $8 million).
(d)     Includes state tax payments.
(e)     Receipt of securitization benefit.
(f)     Amounts previously reflected as TBD, pending the announcement of our renewables financing strategy, when guidance was initiated on November 5, 2021. Following such announcement in December 2021, amounts have been updated consistent with our expectations as of November 5, 2021. However, as of the second quarter of 2022, spend associated with solar and energy storage projects is tracking below the amount shown here, primarily due to a deferral of capital spend from 2022 to 2023 (also resulting in a deferral of project financing originally anticipated for that spend).
