Stocks in this article: EGAS

NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a national law firm concentrating on investor rights, consumer rights and the enforcement of federal antitrust laws, is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Gas Natural Inc.

On November 15, 2013, Gas Natural announced that an Opinion and Order had been issued by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), related to the gas cost recovery cases involving two of the Company's operating subsidiaries. The findings of the PUCO report included, among other things, numerous instances of dubious related party transactions that led to customers being overcharged, lack of inadequate internal controls and the Company's improper manipulation of the regulated utility business. The PUCO report is a result of a 2012 audit of the Company designed to see if Gas Natural was properly billing its customers for natural gas in accordance with regulated recovery practices. The 2012 audit was actually a follow up to an audit in 2010 which raised questions about the Company's enforcement of contract terms, appropriateness of purchase price provisions, and related party transactions.  Shareholders interested in seeking to recover damages on behalf of EGAS and to implement corporate governance measures designed to prevent future misconduct should contact the firm.
