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

The Netherlands: Shaken Up

The Netherlands: Shaken Up

Deutsche Welle (June 19, 2013) — No other land in Europe produces as much natural gas as the Netherlands. But this has come at a price for the people who live there. Drilling is causing more and more earthquakes - and stronger ones too.People in Groningen - a densely populated area in the northern Netherlands - live directly above Europe's biggest natural gas field. They've got used to the odd rumble or two, but this year alone 20 earthquakes have shaken the region. Now The Dutch Oil Company (NAM) has announced it wants to increase its rate of gas extraction. Thus far, the quakes have been relatively low in magnitude, but scientists warn this is likely to change. Angry homeowners, complaining of cracked walls and roofs, are demanding the plans be reconsidered.

Dicker and Link: Obama Emissions Proposal Great News for Natural Gas

Dicker and Link: Obama Emissions Proposal Great News for Natural Gas

TheStreet (June 4, 2014) — Energy contributor Dan Dicker talks with Action Alerts Plus co-portfolio manager Stephanie Link about Obama’s EPA proposal to cut power plant emissions by 30% by 2030. While the final execution of the bill is still years away, the proposal applies more pressure to the coal mining industry, and continues his commitment to unilateral action on climate change. The bill will also help speed the resurgence of natural gas prices and natural gas stocks. Dicker likes Southwestern Energy (SWN), as does Link, who also mentions Fluor (FLR) as a possible play.
