Southwest Gas Corporation Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

Southwest Gas Corporation reported consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company’s net income was $9.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $10.1 million for the prior-year quarter. Due to the seasonal nature of the Company's businesses, results for quarterly periods are not generally indicative of earnings for a complete twelve-month period. Operating Revenue was $453.153 million against $411.574 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.21 against $0.22 million a year ago. The contribution to net income from both operating segments was down modestly between periods, with NPL rebounding nicely from the first quarter of the year when extreme winter weather conditions negatively impacted results. For the six months, the company reported operating revenues of $1,061.549 million against $1,025.079 million a year ago. Net income was $80.410 million against $90.881 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $1.71 against $1.95 a year ago.
