RGC Resources, Inc. Annual and Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Thursday, November 15, 2012 10:00 AM

ROANOKE, Va., Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGC Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:RGCO) announced consolidated Company earnings of $4,296,745 or $0.92 per average share outstanding for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. This compares to consolidated earnings of $4,653,473 or $1.01 per average share outstanding for the year ended September 30, 2011. President, Chairman and CEO John Williamson attributed the lower earnings to a reduction in gross margin from lower space heating sales volumes as a result of a significantly warmer winter season.

The Company had a net loss of $73,772 or $0.02 per average share outstanding for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to a loss of $20,322 or less than one half cent per average share outstanding for the corresponding quarter ended September 30, 2011. The majority of the Company's sales occur in the winter months and as a result, the Company's third and fourth quarters normally reflect minor net losses. Williamson attributed the slight decline in the current quarter to increased depreciation expense associated with the Company's pipeline replacement program.
