  • Net Financial Earnings Per Share Increase; 11.1 Percent Total Shareowner Return on Investment

For fiscal 2012, NJR reported net financial earnings of $112.4 million, or $2.71 per share, compared with $106.5 million, or $2.58 per share, in fiscal 2011. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the company’s net financial loss was $11 million, compared with net financial earnings of $675,000 in the same period last year. The improvement in annual earnings was driven by three of NJR’s subsidiaries – the company’s core subsidiary, New Jersey Natural Gas, its renewable energy segment, NJR Clean Energy Ventures and NJR Home Services, the company’s retail and appliance service subsidiary. The loss in the fourth quarter, which was expected, was due primarily to weaker results at NJR Energy Services.
