Gas Natural Sale Sidelined Until CEO Lawsuit Resolved

Gas Natural Sale Sidelined Until CEO Lawsuit Resolved

TheStreet (July 11, 2014) Gas Natural, the Ohio-based company mired in scandal, was recently talking to prospective buyers about a sale, but talks came to a screeching halt when former CEO Richard Osborne filed a lawsuit against the company. The scandal started back in November when Ohio regulators ordered an investigation into Gas Natural. In May, the company announced that Osborne would be retiring and his son would take the reins. Late last month, Osborne Senior struck back, filing a lawsuit against the company. The suit has forced Gas Natural to put the sale on the back burner, but sources say that as soon as the matter is settled, the company will once again be on the prowl for a buyer. Even with the controversy surrounding the company, there will be no shortage of buyers as there is an intense level of interest in the gas local distribution space. Similar companies that have recently traded hands have fetched rich ebitda multiples of 10.5 times. With about $20 million in ebitda last year, Gas Natural could easily fetch north of $200 million in a sale. Video provided by TheStreet

End of Crude Oil Export Ban Means the End of the Game for Refiners

End of Crude Oil Export Ban Means the End of the Game for Refiners

TheStreet (July 2, 2014) Dan Dicker, energy contributor at RealMoney, talks to Jim Cramer about the Commerce Department's recent decision to allow the reclassification of condensates as a refined product, in effect ending a 40-year old ban on the export of domestically produced crude oil. This will expand the business of distilling crude oil for export overseas, benefiting U.S. exploration and production companies and some transport MLPs. The losers will be the U.S. refiners, who will see the end of the price advantage they have enjoyed for the last 4 years. Dicker says he would not own any of them right now.
