ITC Holdings Corp. (ITC) reported first-quarter net income was $46.1 million or $0.88 per share, up from $42.0 million or $0.81 per share for the first quarter of 2011.

Operating earnings for the quarter were $48.6 million, or $0.93 per share, compared to operating earnings of $42.0 million, or $0.81 per share for the first quarter of 2011.

Operating revenues for the first quarter increased to $196.7 million from $179.4 million for the same period last year.

For 2012, the company reaffirmed its full year 2012 operating earnings guidance in a range of $3.90 to $4.05 per share, excluding expenses associated with implementing the transaction with Entergy. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $4.03 per share for fiscal 2012.
