Laclede Gas Company Announces Consolidated Unaudited Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended September 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of Fiscal 2016

Laclede Gas Company announced consolidated unaudited earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended September 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total operating revenues of $204.2 million compared with $222.3 million for the same period a year ago. Operating loss was $8.5 million compared with $8.4 million for the same period a year ago. Loss before income taxes was $28.4 million compared with $25.7 million for the same period a year ago. Net loss was $18.7 million or $43.3 per diluted share compared with $14.9 million or $43.1 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Net economic loss was $16.1 million or $0.37 per share compared with $2.4 million or $0.07 per share for the same period a year ago. For the year, the company reported total operating revenues of $1,976.4 million compared with $1,627.2 million for the same period a year ago. Operating income was $272.5 million compared with $166.4 million for the same period a year ago. Income before income taxes was $199.1 million compared with $116.9 million for the same period a year ago. Net income was $136.9 million or $43.3 per diluted share compared with $84.6 million or $35.9 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $322.4 million compared with $122.6 million for the same period a year ago. Capital expenditures were $289.8 million compared with $171.0 million for the same period a year ago. Net economic earnings was $138.3 million or $3.19 per share compared with $100.1 million or $3.05 per share for the same period a year ago. The increase in earnings was driven by significantly higher Gas Utility segment earnings due to the addition of Alagasco and growth in the Missouri Utilities, partially offset by lower Gas Marketing earnings and higher non-utility expenses. The company provided earnings guidance for the full year of fiscal 2016. The company is initiating earnings guidance and expects its fiscal 2016 net economic earnings per fully diluted share to be in the range of $3.34 to $3.44, a growth of 5% - 8% from fiscal 2015 earnings. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2016 are expected to be approximately $315 million, with the Gas Utilities accounting for approximately $310 million of that total. This increase reflects the continued ramp-up of infrastructure upgrades in both Missouri and Alabama. Laclede expects that 70% of its fiscal 2016 capital expenditures will be recovered in rates with minimal lag under the existing regulatory mechanisms in Missouri and Alabama. In addition, approximately 10% of the remaining total spend is anticipated to support Missouri-based new business expansion that will add to operating margin. Laclede also confirms its long-term net economic earnings per share growth target of 4% to 6%.
