TULSA, Okla., Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ONE Gas, Inc. (NYSE: OGS) today announced that its 2019 net income is expected to be in the range of $174 million to $190 million, or $3.27 to $3.57 per diluted share. The midpoint for ONE Gas' 2019 net income guidance is $182 million, or $3.42 per diluted share.

ONE Gas' 2019 earnings guidance primarily reflects the benefit of new rates, normal weather in its service territories, and higher depreciation expense from increased capital investments. This guidance reflects the recently issued order by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission related to Oklahoma Natural Gas' March 2018 Performance-Based Rate Change filing. The guidance also reflects Kansas Gas Services' joint stipulation agreement with staff and intervenors in its Kansas rate case that remains subject to approval by the Kansas Corporation Commission.

ONE Gas ended 2018 with $400 million of capacity under its revolving credit facility and does not anticipate any capital market needs in 2019. ONE Gas expects to achieve an 8.3 percent return on equity (ROE) in 2019, which assumes an average rate base of $3.6 billion calculated consistent with utility ratemaking in each jurisdiction.

ONE Gas also narrowed its 2018 net income guidance to $3.23 to $3.27 per diluted share, compared with its previously announced range of $3.15 to $3.35 per diluted share. The narrowed 2018 guidance also incorporates the recently issued order in Oklahoma.

Capital expenditures, including asset removal costs, are expected to be $450 million in 2019, with approximately 70 percent of these expenditures targeted for system integrity and replacement projects.

Guidance estimates may be impacted by the variables listed in the forward-looking statements below. Additional information is available in the guidance table on the ONE Gas website.


ONE Gas expects net income and earnings per share to increase by an average of 6 to 8 percent annually between 2018 and 2023; however, the timing and frequency of regulatory filings will impact the growth rate in any individual year. ONE Gas' rate base is expected to grow an average of 6 to 7 percent per year between 2018 and 2023.

Capital expenditures, including asset removal costs, are expected to be in the range of $450 million to $500 million per year between 2019 and 2023, with approximately 70 percent of these expenditures targeted for system integrity and replacement projects.

ONE Gas expects its average annual dividend growth rate to be 7 to 9 percent between 2018 and 2023, with a target dividend payout ratio of 55 to 65 percent of net income, all subject to its board of directors' approval.




A reconciliation of net margin to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in the guidance table included with this release. Net margin is comprised of total revenues less cost of natural gas. This net amount is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. Cost of natural gas includes commodity purchases, fuel, storage, transportation and other gas purchase costs recovered through our cost of natural gas regulatory mechanisms, as required by our regulators, and does not include an allocation of general operating costs or depreciation and amortization. In addition, our cost of natural gas regulatory mechanisms provide a method of recovering natural gas costs on an ongoing basis without a profit. Therefore, although our revenues will fluctuate with the cost of gas that we pass through to our customers, net margin is not affected by fluctuations in the cost of natural gas. Accordingly, we routinely use net margin in the analysis of our financial performance. We believe that net margin provides investors a more relevant and useful measure to analyze our financial performance as a 100 percent regulated natural gas utility than operating revenues because the change in the cost of natural gas from period to period does not impact our net margin.

ONE Gas, Inc. (NYSE: OGS) is a 100-percent regulated natural gas utility, and trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "OGS." ONE Gas is included in the S&P MidCap 400 Index, and is one of the largest natural gas utilities in the United States.

ONE Gas provides natural gas distribution services to more than 2 million customers in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas.

ONE Gas is headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., and its divisions include Oklahoma Natural Gas, the largest natural gas distributor in Oklahoma; Kansas Gas Service, the largest in Kansas, and Texas Gas Service, the third largest in Texas, in terms of customers.

Its largest natural gas distribution markets by customer count are Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla.; Kansas City, Wichita and Topeka, Kan.; and Austin and El Paso, Texas. ONE Gas serves residential, commercial, industrial, transportation and wholesale customers in all three states.

NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of GreenSky, Inc. ("GreenSky" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GSKY).  GreenSky is a financial technology company that runs an online platform for processing loan applications at the point of sale. 

A class action complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who purchased GreenSky Class A common stock pursuant or traceable to the Company's Initial Public Offering ("IPO") that closed on or about May 29, 2018.  In the IPO, GreenSky sold 43.7 million shares of Class A common stock at $23 per share for gross proceeds of $874 million

According to the complaint, GreenSky has two principal sources of revenue:  (1) "transaction fees" that the Company receives upfront when a consumer secures a loan through the GreenSky platform and makes a purchase; and (2) recurring fees generated from banks over the lives of loans the Company facilitates.  Further, according to the complaint, transaction fees accounted for 87% of the Company's revenue in 2017.  The complaint also alleges that GreenSky typically charges a 14% fee to solar panel merchants compared to its average transaction fee of 7%.

On August 7, 2018, GreenSky announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.  The press release indicated that the Company's transaction fees as a percentage of its total revenue had declined below the rate achieved in the second quarter of 2017.  According to the complaint, the Company acknowledged during the conference call to discuss its quarterly results that the rapid reduction in the transaction fee rate was attributable to the transition away from solar panel merchants and towards healthcare companies. On August 7, 2018, GreenSky's shares declined $2.32 per share, nearly 11%, to close at $18.91 per share.

Then, on November 6, 2018, in connection with reporting its third quarter financial results, GreenSky lowered its full year 2018 transaction volume guidance from between $5.1 and $5.3 billion to between $4.9 and $5.1 billion.  During the conference call to discuss its quarterly results, GreenSky's CEO and Chairman reportedly stated that "the transaction fee take rate is down about 70 basis points year-over-year, driven by the reduction in solar."  On November 6, 2018, GreenSky's shares declined by $5.38 per share, or 36.7%, to close at $9.28 per share.

The complaint alleges that the offering documents for the Company's IPO touted GreenSky's growth and financial performance while failing to disclose that (i) GreenSky was transitioning away from the solar power market in favor of the elective healthcare market, and (ii) the foreseeable negative effects on GreenSky's profits because of significant differences in transaction fees GreenSky charged to different classes of merchants.

If you are a member of the proposed Class, you may move the court no later than January 28, 2019 to serve as a lead plaintiff for the purported class.  You need not seek to become a lead plaintiff in order to share in any possible recovery.  If you would like to discuss the complaint or our investigation, please contact us by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
