ENMAX Corporation today announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2011. Earnings for the year were $184.6 million, up 4% when compared to earnings of $177.8 million in the prior year. The year over year improvement in earnings was the result of lower interest and tax expense and gains on the sale of British Columbia assets. Earnings in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $42.8 million compared to $42.5 million for the same period in 2010. The company also declared a dividend of $56 million to be paid to The City of Calgary in 2012.
"I'm very pleased with our business results in 2011 and that we continue to deliver a stable return to our Shareholder and the citizens of Calgary," said Charles Ruigrok, Interim President and CEO. "We saw improvements in almost all areas of our business. One significant exception was the area of safety, where we experienced the tragic loss of Nathan Haase in a workplace fatality in August. Our organization remains committed to an injury free workplace and this will continue as our highest priority in 2012."
