EnergySouth, Inc. reports fiscal 2008 first quarter earnings and announces declaration of dividend
Mobile, AL: EnergySouth, Inc. today reported earnings for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2007 of $4,087,000, or $0.50 per diluted share, as compared to net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2006 of $4,614,000, or $0.57 per diluted share. The decrease in earnings of $0.07 per diluted share was driven by the expansion of the Company’s midstream operations.
Earnings from the Company’s midstream operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 were $0.13 per diluted share, a decrease of $0.07 per diluted share as compared to the same period last year. The decrease in earnings was due primarily to increased operating expenses incurred as a result of the continuing expansion of the midstream operations, including the acquisition of assets in November 2007 to be developed in Mississippi. These increases in expense were partially offset by increased revenues from short-term storage agreements and a decrease in net interest expense (interest expense less capitalized interest).
Earnings per diluted share of $0.36 from the Company’s natural gas distribution business for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 were unchanged when compared to the same prior-year period. Margins, defined as revenues less cost of gas and related taxes, decreased due primarily to a decline in consumption by temperature-sensitive customers. This decrease was offset by a decline in operating expenses during the current-year period.
Earnings from other business operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 were also unchanged when compared to the same prior-year period. A decrease in merchandise sales and related merchandising activities was offset by an increase in net interest income earned during the current year period.
The Board of Directors of EnergySouth, Inc., at a meeting held January 25, 2008, declared a quarterly dividend on the outstanding Common Stock of $0.25 per share, to be paid April 1, 2008 to holders of record as of March 14, 2008.
