The York Water Company Reports Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Year 2014

The York Water Company reported earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. The company reported third quarter operating revenues of $12,062,000 increased $1,150,000 and net income of $3,065,000 increased $530,000 compared to the third quarter of 2013. Earnings per share of $0.23 for the three-month period increased $0.04 compared to the same period last year. Lower revenue due to decreased per capita consumption, and increased expenses including depreciation, health insurance and power costs, caused the decrease. The company reported first nine operating revenues of $34,401,000 increased $2,683,000, and net income of $7,933,000 increased $917,000 compared to the first nine months of 2013. Higher revenues were due to an increase in rates effective February 28, 2014, and growth in both the water and wastewater customer bases primarily due to acquisitions. The increased revenues were partially offset by higher expenses primarily for pension, wages, depreciation, insurance, and distribution system maintenance. Earnings per share of $0.61 for the nine-month period increased $0.07 compared to the same period last year. The company invested $9.3 million in construction expenditures for expansion of its service territory, upgrades to water treatment facilities, replacement of a portion of its infrastructure and other routine items. In addition, the company invested $293,000 in the acquisition of water and wastewater facilities. The company estimates it will invest an additional $3.0 million in 2014, excluding acquisitions, for improvements to its pipes, filtration system, facilities, and dams to ensure a safe, adequate, and reliable supply of drinking water and to maintain proper handling and disposal of wastewater for the company's growing customer base.
