Atmos Energy Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended September 30, 2014; Declares Quarterly Dividend, Payable on December 8, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2015

Atmos Energy Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported that operating income was $83.944 million compared to $50.383 million for the same period of last year. Income before income taxes was $48.992 million compared to $16.452 million for the same period of last year. Net income was $23.713 million or $0.23 per diluted share compared to $7.536 million or $0.08 per basic and diluted share for the same period of last year. For the year, the company reported that operating income was $611.349 million compared to $501.879 million for the same period of last year. Income before income taxes was $476.819 million compared to $373.297 million for the same period of last year. Income from continuing operations was $289.817 million or $2.96 per basic and diluted share compared to $230.698 million or $2.50 per diluted share for the same period of last year. Net income was $289.817 million or $2.96 per basic and diluted share compared to $243.194 million or $2.64 per diluted share for the same period of last year. Net cash provided by operating activities was $739.986 million compared to $613.127 million for the same period of last year. The year-over-year increase reflects higher operating results from colder weather and rate increases combined with the timing of customer collections and vendor payments. Capital expenditures were $835.251 million compared to $845.033 million for the same period of last year. The $9.7 million decrease is largely due to a $63.9 million decrease in spending in the regulated pipeline segment primarily associated with the completion of the Line WX expansion project, partially offset by a $55.5 million increase in spending in the regulated distribution segment from increased infrastructure investment. The company expects fiscal 2015 earnings to be in the range of $2.90 to $3.05 per diluted share, excluding net unrealized margins. Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $900 million to $1 billion in fiscal 2015. Net income from regulated operations is expected to be in the range of $285 million to $300 million, while net income from non-regulated operations is expected to be in the range of $10 million to $12 million. Effective income tax rate is expected to be in that 37% to 38% range. Depreciation and amortization is expected to range between $265 million and $285 million due to increased capital investment in fiscal 2014. The company announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly dividend increase on the company's common stock to 39 cents per share. The indicated annual dividend is $1.56, which represents an $0.08 increase over the fiscal 2014 annual dividend of $1.48. The dividend will be paid on December 8, 2014, to shareholders of record on November 24, 2014.
