TORONTO, May 27 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro Corporation (the "Corporation") announced today that it has filed with Canadian security regulators its financial statements and related MD&A for the three months ended March 31, 2010. Copies may be obtained from the Corporation or accessed through www.sedar.com.

    
    -   Net income was $12.6 million for the three months ended March 31,
        2010 compared with $7.0 million for the same period in 2009.
    -   Net revenues were slightly higher at $127.80 million compared to
        $124.5 million for the same period in 2009.

    Financial Highlights

    Net income was $12.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010,
compared to $7.0 million for the same period in 2009. The increase in net
income was mainly due to:

    -   Lower operating expenses ($5.0 million) due to contact voltage costs
        incurred in 2009;
    -   Higher net revenues ($3.3 million) from higher regulated revenues;
    -   Lower depreciation expense ($1.0 million); and
    -   Lower net interest expense ($0.8 million).

    These favourable variances were partially offset by higher provision for
payment in lieu of taxes ($2.4 million) due to higher earnings before tax in
2010.
