Fortis Inc. (FTS) is a North American electric and gas utility business, operating in five Canadian provinces, nine U.S. states and three Caribbean countries. Total assets are $56.2B as at Jun-30-2020. This has increased to $53.4B as of Dec-31-2019 from $29B at Dec-31-2015 mainly from the acquisition of ITC Holdings Corp in Nov-2016 and annual capital spending of about $3.8B. Approximately 95% of revenues are from rate regulated natural gas and electric utilities serving 2M electric customers and 1.3M natural gas connections. Approximately 65% of forecast adjusted net income is in US dollars and 30% in Canadian with the balance from Caribbean operations. The $56.2B in assets includes the $11.8B(US) acquisition in Nov-2016 of ITC, the largest independent owner of transmission lines in the US. ITC owns and operates high-voltage transmission facilities in Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. The largest business segments are ITC, UNS and Fortis (Alberta) contributing 30%, 25% and 10% respectively. Dividends are forecast to increase by 6% annually consistent with previous forecasts. Forecast capital expenditures for the 2020-2024 time period are $18B.
