Corning Natural Gas Holding Corporation Reports on Quarterly Earnings & Argo Merger Update
CORNING, N.Y., May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corning Natural Gas Holding Corporation (OTCQX: CNIG) announced consolidated earnings of $2,407,480 or $0.73 per share for its second quarter ended March 31, 2022. This compares to consolidated earnings of $2,269,001 or $0.69 per share for its second quarter ended March 31, 2021. Consolidated earnings for its 2022 fiscal year-to-date were $2,810,707, or $0.87 per share, versus $2,391,109, or $0.74 per share for the same period in 2021. CFO Charles Lenns stated, “The increase in Company earnings for both the second quarter and the 2022 fiscal year-to-date were due to colder weather in fiscal 2022 and the electric and gas rate increases at Pike County Light & Power. These gains were partially offset by losses on investment income and a loss associated with the disposition of property.”
Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 is not necessarily indicative of expected results for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022. Quarterly earnings are affected by the highly seasonal nature of the business and weather conditions such as temperature variations.
