Ascendant Group Ltd. Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2015

Ascendant Group Ltd. reported consolidated earnings results for the year ended December 31, 2015. For the year, the company reported $14.5 million, a $7.2 million increase compared to 2014 revised operating earnings. The increase in operating earnings was largely driven by a $7.2 million improvement at BELCO reflecting higher sales, reduced windstorm expense and a reduction in bad debt expense. Bermuda Gas operating earnings, excluding discontinued appliance and service operations, were up $0.2 million due to a decline in propane costs, partially offset by lower sales volume. AG Holdings Limited profits declined $0.98 million compared to 2014, as a result of a reduction in iFM earnings due to the loss of a large contract and lower sales revenues at iEPC, which was partly offset by an increase in Air Care’s earnings. The Company’s consolidated net income was $17.4 million, a $0.2 million decrease compared to Ascendant Group’s consolidated net income in 2014. Included in the decreased results are non-recurring, post retirement benefit plan amendment gains totaling $5.0 million in 2015 associated with the Company’s Defined Benefit (DB) Pension Plan, partially offset by Bermuda Gas’ restructuring charges. Basic earnings per share remained unchanged from 2014 to 2015 at $1.63.
