Slide 4 shows the basic earnings in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $0.76 per share compared to $0.74 per share in the same quarter of 2010.

South Carolina Electric and Gas Company’s full-year 2011 earnings, denoted in blue, were up $0.04 compared to 2010. Improved margins from increases under the Base Load Review Act offset the increased capital related cost.
