UGI Reports Earnings For Fiscal 2012

UGI Corporation interest expense and income taxes

  • UGI’s consolidated interest expense was $83.5 million higher in fiscal 2012 primarily reflecting higher AmeriGas Propane interest expense on debt to fund the Heritage Propane acquisition.
  • Excluding the impact of AmeriGas Partners’ pre-tax income not subject to tax, UGI’s effective income tax rate was 33.3% in fiscal 2012 compared with 36.0% in the prior year. The lower effective tax rate reflects a lower International Propane income tax rate including the realization of previously unrecognized foreign tax credits. Fiscal 2011 effective tax rate includes the effects of the reversal of the $9.4 million reserve associated with the French Competition Authority matter which was not subject to tax.

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements that management believes to be reasonable as of today’s date only. Actual results may differ significantly because of risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond management’s control. You should read UGI’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for a more extensive list of factors that could affect results. Among them are adverse weather conditions, cost volatility and availability of all energy products, including propane, natural gas, electricity and fuel oil, increased customer conservation measures, the impact of pending and future legal proceedings, domestic and international political, regulatory and economic conditions including currency exchange rate fluctuations (particularly the euro), the timing of development of Marcellus Shale gas production, the timing and success of our commercial initiatives and investments to grow our business, and our ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses, including Heritage Propane, and achieve anticipated synergies.
