RGS earnings slip in third quarter

Profits dipped some 17 percent during the third quarter at RGS Energy Group Inc. The energy company today reported third-quarter earnings of $14 million, or 38 cents a share, versus earnings of $16.9 million, or 44 cents a share, a year ago.
The company had anticipated the earnings dip, officials said. It attributed the decrease to a combination of cooler weather, higher expenses and scheduled rate reductions as part of a settlement with the state Public Service Commission.
Operating revenues for the quarter increased to $314.3 million from $279.9 million a year ago.
For the first nine months of 2000, RGS reported earnings of $1 billion or $1.95 a share compared with $881.8 million or $1.79 a share last year.
RGS chairman, president and CEO Thomas Richards described the 2000 results as solid, “in a time of transition in our industry and turbulent wholesale electric markets.”
