Growing organically

It all starts with growing organically - increasing our customers, improving retention and further penetrating the markets we serve across our three-state footprint. We are driving top-line growth and using our increased scale and shared services structure to achieve cost efficiencies and higher margins.

Investing in infrastructure

And we're growing through investing in infrastructure, both the distribution pipelines that serve our customers and upstream infrastructure including a transmission pipeline to bring a lower cost source of gas supply to eastern Missouri. Our five-year (2017-2021) capital expenditures forecast reflects a total investment of $2.3B driven by upgrades to our distribution system in AL, MS and MO, and the STL Pipeline with an investment of $190M - $210M.

Acquiring and integrating

Over the last several years, we have grown and transformed our company by successfully acquiring and integrating gas utilities. Our proven ability to integrate acquisitions well stems from our focus on bringing people and technology together in ways that add value for our customers and our shareholders. We now have the scale necessary to serve as a platform for our broader growth ambitions including achieving our earnings growth targets through our organic growth initiatives and investment plans.

At the same time, we have launched an effort to standardize our information technology platform company-wide, which will continue to drive improvements in performance and service quality.
