FPL Group files 10-Q; reverses adoption of FAS 150

JUNO BEACH, Fla. - FPL Group, Inc. (NYSE: FPL) today said it filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission its quarterly Form 10-Q for the period ended Sept. 30, 2003, and reversed the effects of adopting FAS 150 – Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Characteristics of Both Liabilities and Equity, which was effective July 1, 2003 and had been reflected in FPL Group’s previously reported third quarter financial results released on October 23, 2003. On October 29, 2003 the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) deferred the implementation of the FAS 150 provisions that affect FPL Group and prohibited early adoption.

The company said the reversal of adopting FAS 150 increased FPL Group’s and its subsidiary FPL Energy’s reported third quarter 2003 net income on a GAAP basis by $8 million after-tax or $0.05 per share of FPL Group common stock.
