RGC Resources, Inc. Second Quarter Financial Results

ROANOKE, Va., May 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGC Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:RGCO) announced consolidated Company earnings of $2,698,707 or $0.57 per average share outstanding for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This compares to consolidated earnings of $2,483,307 or $0.54 per average share outstanding for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. CFO Paul Nester attributed the increase in earnings to higher gross margins from space heating sales volumes as a result of a cooler winter season.

Earnings for the twelve months ending March 31, 2013 were $4,231,386 or $0.91 per share compared to $0.97 per share for the twelve months ended March 31, 2012. Nester attributed the lower year-over-year earnings primarily to the effect of higher depreciation and property tax expenses associated with the Company's pipeline replacement program.
