  • NJR Net Financial Earnings Per Share Increase 16 Percent

Fiscal 2012 year-to-date net financial earnings at NJR totaled $123.6 million, or $2.98 per share, compared with $105.9 million, or $2.56 per share, during the first nine months of fiscal 2011. This increase is due primarily to improved year-to-date results at New Jersey Natural Gas and NJR Clean Energy Ventures, the company’s renewable energy subsidiary. For the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, net financial earnings were $4.1 million, compared with $9.7 million during the same period last year. This decrease was due primarily to the expected lower quarterly results from NJR Energy Services.
