ENMAX Corporation today announced its
financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Net earnings from continuing operations for the quarter were $53.1 million, up 5 per cent when compared to earnings of $50.6 million in the second quarter of the prior year. The year over year improvement in net earnings from continuing operations was the result of higher operating margins and lower interest expenses. This brings year-to-date net earnings from continuing operations to $115.7 million, up from $96.5 million for the same period last year.
"Second quarter performance was consistent with expectations," said Gianna Manes, ENMAX President and CEO.
"The regulated transmission and distribution operations are performing well compared to last year, however returns on the assets invested in this business are below targeted levels. In regards to our competitive business, we also had a strong quarter as we continue to add new customers and construction of the Shepard Energy Centre continues on plan."
