Atmos Energy Corporation Declares Quarterly Dividend, Payable on March 9, 2015; Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Atmos Energy Corporation's Board of Directors announced that it has declared a quarterly dividend of 39 cents per common share. The indicated annual dividend for fiscal 2015 is $1.56, which represents a 5.4% increase over fiscal 2014. The dividend will be paid on March 9, 2015, to shareholders of record on February 23, 2015. The company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company’s net income, excluding net unrealized margins, was $92.8 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared with consolidated net income, excluding net unrealized margins, of $80.6 million, or $0.88 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter. Consolidated net income was $97.6 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, after including unrealized net gains of $4.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. Net income was $87.0 million or $0.95 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter, after including unrealized net gains of $6.4 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. Capital expenditures increased to $261.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014, compared with $180.6 million in the prior-year period. The $80.7 million increase is largely due to a $41.8 million increase in spending in the regulated pipeline segment primarily associated with the enhancement and fortification of two storage fields to ensure the reliability of gas service to the Mid-Tex Division. For the three months ended December 31, 2014, the company generated operating cash flow of $27.4 million, a $6.9 million decrease compared with the three months ended December 31, 2013. The decrease primarily reflects the timing of customer collections and vendor payments. Operating income was $187,725,000 compared to $170,720,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $156,254,000 compared to $136,473,000 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $27,415,000 compared to $34,300,000 a year ago.
