Midwestern Utility Empire District Electric Said to Explore Sale

Empire District Electric Co., a utility that supplies energy across the Midwestern U.S., is exploring a sale, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Joplin, Missouri-based company is working with an adviser as it seeks potential buyers, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. The process is at an early stage, no final decision has been made, and the company may decide not to pursue a sale, they said.
