Peter Cartwright, Calpine president and CEO, said, "During the second quarter, spark spreads were mixed, and Calpine experienced several unplanned equipment outages in key power markets. Financial results were further impacted by power plant and development project asset impairments and service agreement cancellations, totaling just over $200 million. These were partially mitigated by approximately $129 million of income from repurchase of debt.

"While results for the quarter were disappointing, Calpine continues to make significant progress in advancing our strategic initiative to de-lever our balance sheet and reduce interest expense and operating costs. In just over two months since our May rollout, Calpine has completed or announced over $2 billion of transactions toward attaining these goals, and since the beginning of the third quarter, we have lowered total debt by approximately $1.3 billion to $17.4 billion.

"Although demand in the second quarter was dampened by mild weather, especially in April and May, since June we have seen strong demand for electricity and improving spark spreads in our major power markets," continued Cartwright. "Our recently restructured long-term service arrangements with our major equipment manufacturers will advance Calpine"s program to lower operating costs, improve plant performance and enhance our major maintenance capabilities."

2005 Second Quarter Financial Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2005, Calpine reported revenue of $2.2 billion, representing an increase of 0.5% over the same period in the prior year. Including the discontinued operations discussed below, Calpine recorded a net loss per share of $0.66, or a net loss of $298.5 million, compared to a net loss per share of $0.07, or a net loss of $28.7 million, for the same quarter in the prior year.

Included in the current quarter"s results are various non-routine items, which are discussed in more detail below and in the aggregate netted to a charge of $0.11 per share, consisting of impairment charges on two power plants in operation and three in development, cancellation charges to terminate several long-term service agreements, and a net gain on the repurchase of debt.

For the three months ended June 30, 2005, Calpine"s average capacity in operation for consolidated projects increased by 10.9% to 25,566 megawatts. Generation volume was flat from the prior year as mild weather in April and May decreased demand, and Calpine also experienced forced outages at certain of its power plants. The company generated approximately 20.0 million megawatt-hours, which equated to a baseload capacity factor of 39.9%, and realized an average spark spread of $22.57 per megawatt-hour. For the same period in 2004, Calpine generated 20.1 million megawatt-hours, which equated to a baseload capacity factor of 45.0%, and realized an average spark spread of $20.62 per megawatt-hour.

Gross profit decreased by $58.8 million to a loss of $31.5 million in the three months ended June 30, 2005, compared to the same period in the prior year. This change is due primarily to a $106.2 million impairment charge related to the sale of the Morris Power Plant, which sale was pending at the end of the quarter. Although total spark spread margin increased by $38.6 million period-to-period, it did not increase in line with the increases in transmission purchase expense, depreciation and interest expense associated with new power plants coming on line.

During the three months ended June 30, 2005, financial results were positively impacted by $129.2 million of income recorded from repurchase of various issuances of debt and negatively impacted by $33.9 million in long-term service agreement cancellation charges. In addition, Calpine recorded $45.5 million in project development expense due to the write-off of three projects in suspended development. Interest expense increased $63.2 million between periods primarily due to an increase in the average interest rate and lower capitalization of interest expense as fewer plants were in active construction.

Other expense was $25.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2005, compared to other income of $179.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2004. The net expense for the three months ended June 30, 2005, was due mainly to an impairment charge of $18.5 million related to the sale of Calpine"s investment in the Grays Ferry Cogeneration Facility in July 2005. Other income for the quarter ended June 30, 2004, included $171.5 million in pre-tax gains from the restructuring and sale of power purchase agreements for two of the company"s New Jersey plants, net of transaction costs and the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs.

The discontinued operations in the three months ended June 30, 2005, are a result of the sale of the Saltend Energy Centre and Calpine"s remaining domestic oil and gas exploration and production properties and assets. Both of these sales closed in July 2005. Discontinued operations for the three months ended June 30, 2004, also included the Lost Pines I Power Project and oil and gas sales in 2004. On August 3, 2005, Calpine will file a Form 8-K for the disposition of the Saltend Energy Centre. The Form 8-K will include a pro forma balance sheet as of March 31, 2005, and pro forma income statements for the three months ended March 31, 2005, and for the years ended December 31, 2004, 2003 and 2002, that will adjust for the effects of the sale of the Saltend Energy Centre, as well as the sale of Calpine"s remaining domestic oil and gas exploration and production properties and assets.

2005 Six-Months Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2005, Calpine reported revenue of $4.3 billion, representing an increase of 4.2% over the same period in the prior year. Including the discontinued operations discussed below, Calpine recorded a net loss per share of $1.04, or a net loss of $467.2 million, compared to a net loss per share of $0.24, or a net loss of $99.9 million, for the same period in the prior year.

Included in the six-months results are various non-routine items, which are discussed in more detail below and in the aggregate netted to a charge of $0.08 per share, consisting of impairment charges on two power plants in operation and three in development, cancellation charges to terminate several long-term agreements, and a net gain on the repurchase of debt.

For the six months ended June 30, 2005, Calpine"s average capacity in operation for consolidated projects increased by 16.0% to 25,330 megawatts. The company generated approximately 40.1 million megawatt-hours, which equated to a baseload capacity factor of 40.6%, and realized an average spark spread of $22.61 per megawatt-hour. For the same period in 2004, Calpine generated 38.7 million megawatt-hours, which equated to a baseload capacity factor of 46.2%, and realized an average spark spread of $19.67 per megawatt-hour.

Gross profit decreased by $24.8 million, or 34%, to $48.3 million in the six months ended June 30, 2005, compared to the same period in the prior year. This change is due primarily to a $106.2 million impairment charge related to the sale of the Morris Power Plant. Despite improvements in market fundamentals, total spark spread -- which increased by $144.8 million, or 19%, in the six months ended June 30, 2005, compared to the same period in 2004 -- did not increase in line with the increases in plant operating expense, transmission purchase expense, depreciation, and interest expense associated with new power plants coming on line.

During the six months ended June 30, 2005, financial results were positively impacted by $150.9 million of income recorded from repurchase of various issuances of debt and negatively impacted by $33.9 million in long-term service agreement cancellation charges. In addition, Calpine recorded $45.5 million in project development expense due to the write-off of three projects in suspended development. Interest expense increased $142.3 million between periods primarily due to an increase in the average interest rate and lower capitalization of interest expense as fewer plants were in active construction.

Other expense was $20.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2005, compared to other income of $191.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2004. The net expense for the six months ended June 30, 2005, was due mainly to an impairment charge of $18.5 million related to the sale of Calpine"s interest in the Grays Ferry Cogeneration Facility in July 2005. Other income for the six months ended June 30, 2004, included $171.5 million in pre-tax gains from the restructuring and sale of power purchase agreements for two of the company"s New Jersey plants, net of transaction costs and the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs.

The discontinued operations in the six months ended June 30, 2005, are a result of the July 2005 sales of the Saltend Energy Centre and Calpine"s remaining domestic oil and gas exploration and production properties and assets. Discontinued operations for the six months ended June 30, 2004, also included the Lost Pines 1 Power Project and oil and gas sales in 2004.

Strategic Initiative Update

On May 25, 2005, Calpine launched a strategic initiative aimed at reducing debt and enhancing the company"s financial strength. The program is targeting debt reduction of approximately $3 billion by the end of 2005, $275 million of annual interest savings and approximately $200 million in annual operating cost reductions. During the second quarter, Calpine entered into negotiations for the proposed sale of two gas-fired power plants, representing approximately 600 megawatts of capacity.

Subsequent to June 30, 2005, Calpine:

-- Sold all of its remaining domestic oil and gas exploration and production properties and assets for $1.05 billion, less adjustments, transaction fees and expenses, and less approximately $75 million to reflect the value of certain oil and gas properties for which the company was unable to obtain consents to assignment prior to closing. The company expects to receive the remaining consents in the near future. With the completion of this transaction, Calpine expects to record, subsequent to June 30, 2005, a pre-tax gain on the sale of assets of approximately $350.0 million;

-- Completed the sale of the 1,200-megawatt Saltend Energy Centre in Hull, England, generating total gross proceeds of $862.5 million, for an estimated pre-tax gain of $6 million. The two existing series of Redeemable Preferred Shares relating to the Saltend Energy Centre were redeemed in connection with the sale;

-- Reached an agreement with Siemens Westinghouse to restructure Calpine"s long-term relationship and service agreements. The restructuring provides greater operating and turbine maintenance flexibility for Calpine, resolves outstanding issues between the companies and provides an option to purchase extended warranties for Calpine turbines in construction and in storage;

-- Announced a 15-year Master Products and Services Agreement with General Electric International, Inc., which replaces the nine remaining long-term service agreements related to Calpine"s GE 7FA turbine fleet. Calpine will benefit from the ability to strengthen its major maintenance capabilities, improve power plant performance and lower operating costs;

-- Sold its 50% interest in the 175-megawatt Grays Ferry Cogeneration Facility for $37.4 million;

-- Completed the sale of the company"s 156-megawatt Morris Power Plant for approximately $84.5 million; and

-- Purchased approximately $138.9 million of its 9 5/8% First Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2014 under the terms of a tender offer.

Other Financing Transactions

During the second quarter, Calpine completed the following financing transactions:

-- Issued $650.0 million of 7 3/4% Contingent Convertible Notes due 2015 in June 2005. The company, in July 2005, used a portion of the net proceeds to redeem the remaining $517.5 million outstanding of 5% HIGH TIDES III preferred securities, of which $115.0 million was held by Calpine. The company used the remaining net proceeds to repurchase a portion of the outstanding principal amount of its 8 1/2% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2011;

-- Received funding for Metcalf Energy Center, LLC"s $155.0 million offering of 5.5-Year Redeemable Preferred Shares and five-year, $100.0 million Senior Term Loan. A portion of the net proceeds was used to repay $50.0 million outstanding on the original Metcalf project financing, with the remaining net proceeds to be used as permitted by the company"s existing indentures.

-- Received funding for its $123.1 million, non-recourse project finance facility to complete the construction of the 79.9-megawatt Bethpage Energy Center 3. Approximately $55.0 million of the funding was used to reimburse Calpine for costs spent to date on the Bethpage 3 project. An additional amount of approximately $11.2 million will be released upon satisfying certain conditions. The balance of funds will be used for transaction expenses, the final completion of the project and to fund certain reserve accounts.

Calpine ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents on hand of approximately $636.2 million. In addition to this amount, the company"s current portion of restricted cash totaled approximately $993.9 million, including $402.5 million used in July 2005 to redeem the remaining HIGH TIDES III preferred securities held by third parties.

During the three months ended June 30, 2005, Calpine repurchased Senior Notes in open market transactions totaling $479.8 million in principal. The company repurchased the Senior Notes for cash totaling $337.9 million plus accrued interest as follows (in thousands):

Senior Notes Principal Cash Payment
10 1/2% due 2006 $3,485.0 $2,753.2
7 5/8% due 2006 1,335.0 1,041.3
8 3/4% due 2007 3,000.0 1,665.0
8 1/2% due 2008 25,500.0 18,297.5
7 3/4% due 2009 35,000.0 20,865.0
8 5/8% due 2010 37,468.0 24,077.4
8 1/2% due 2011 374,000.0 269,154.8
Total repurchases $479,788.0 $337,854.2

Also, in June 2005, Calpine repurchased $94.3 million in aggregate outstanding principal amount of 6% Contingent Convertible Notes due 2014 in exchange for 27,539,826 shares of Calpine common stock. The company recorded a pre-tax loss of $7.9 million on the exchange, which includes the write-off of the associated unamortized deferred financing costs and unamortized original issue discount.

For the three months ended June 30, 2005, the company recorded an aggregate pre-tax gain of $129.2 million on the above debt repurchases after the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs and unamortized discounts.

Operations Update

During the second quarter Calpine experienced planned (4.7 million megawatt-hours) and unplanned (2.6 million megawatt-hours) outages that significantly impacted operations. Several major power plants were off-line in Calpine"s key power markets, including California, Arizona, Texas and New England. These extended forced outages were primarily related to equipment failure, which the company has since resolved.

Also during the second quarter, Calpine:

-- Generated 20.0 million megawatt-hours for the quarter, slightly lower than 2004 levels;

-- Operated its gas-fired power plants with an average baseload heat rate of 7,294 million British thermal units per kilowatt-hour, compared to 7,265 in 2004;

-- Reduced total plant operating expense (based on a trailing 12-month period ending June 30, at an assumed 70% capacity factor) to $4.95 per megawatt-hour from $5.41 per megawatt-hour in 2004;

-- Operated its natural gas-fired and geothermal power plants with an average availability of 89.0%, compared to 88.9% in 2004;

-- Started-up the 600-megawatt Metcalf Energy Center for the Northern California power market. Metcalf is the first large power plant in Silicon Valley. It will be the cornerstone of energy supply and reliability for the region;

-- Placed Phase I (300 megawatts) of the Fox Energy Center into operation. The new, natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant, located in Wisconsin, is providing approximately 150 megawatts of capacity to Wisconsin Public Service Corporation, with the remainder available for sale into the region"s wholesale power market; and

-- Pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) efficiency-based emissions rate (pounds of GHG emitted per megawatt-hour of electricity generated) by 4% from 2003 levels. Compared to the average fossil-fueled power plant in the United States, Calpine"s combined-cycle, natural gas-fired units on average release nearly 54% less carbon dioxide -- the principal greenhouse gas.

Subsequent to June 30, 2005, Calpine:

-- Entered into agreements with GE Energy (GE) to begin construction this month of North America"s most advanced natural gas-fired, combined- cycle power plant at the Inland Empire site in Southern California. GE has acquired development rights for the plant from Calpine and will finance and operate the new H System(TM) power plant. Calpine will manage plant construction and will market the plant"s output and manage its fuel requirements under a long-term arrangement with GE;

-- Started-up 500 megawatts of new capacity to the Pastoria Energy Center, bringing the plant"s total output to 750 megawatts. Pastoria, located in the attractive Southern California power market, is the single- largest capacity addition to occur in the state before peak summer power demand;

-- Completed construction of the Bethpage Energy Center 3, the region"s first modern, natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant. Calpine"s new plant provides up to 79.9 megawatts of electricity to Long Island Power Authority customers under a 20-year contract for capacity, energy and other energy-related services; and

-- Received an award from the U.S. Department of Labor"s Occupational Safety and Health Administration"s (OSHA) highest safety recognition for Calpine"s Tiverton, R.I. and Ontelaunee, Pa. power plants under OSHA"s Voluntary Protection Program.

New Market Opportunities
During the quarter, Calpine:

-- Announced an agreement to supply up to 485 megawatts of electricity to Entergy from the Carville Energy Center in Louisiana. Carville is part of NewSouth Energy"s marketing network of nearly 6,000 megawatts of modern, gas-fired power plants in the Southeast United States;

-- Expanded and extended its power sales to Safeway Inc. The new agreement calls for the delivery of approximately 130 megawatts, a 20-megawatt increase, and extends the term of the existing contract one additional year through mid-2008. The newly expanded Safeway contract now facilitates energy deliveries to more than 400 Safeway locations throughout California; and

-- Entered into a 20-year power sales agreement in partnership with Mitsui & Co., Ltd., with the Ontario Power Authority to provide energy from a new 1,005-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant to be located in Ontario. As part of its turbine inventory deployment program, Calpine"s equity in the project will be three of the company"s gas turbines and one steam turbine.

(1) This non-GAAP measure is presented not as a measure of operating
results, but rather as a measure of our ability to service debt and
to raise additional funds. It should not be construed as an
alternative to either (i) income from operations or (ii) cash flows
from operating activities. It is defined as net income less income
from unconsolidated investments, plus cash received from
unconsolidated investments, plus interest expense (including
one-third of operating lease expense, which is management"s estimate
of the component of operating lease expense that constitutes interest
expense), plus provision for tax, plus DD&A. The interest, tax, DD&A
and income from unconsolidated investments components of discontinued
operations are added back in calculating EBITDA, as adjusted.
(2) This non-GAAP measure is presented as a further refinement of EBITDA,
as adjusted, to reflect the company"s ability to service debt with
cash.
(3) Does not include MWh generated by unconsolidated investments in power
projects.
(4) Amounts based on Calpine"s ownership percentage.
