ONE Gas Announces Second-quarter 2019 Financial Results;
Updates 2019 Financial Guidance

TULSA, Okla. - July 29, 2019 - ONE Gas, Inc. (NYSE: OGS) today announced its second-quarter 2019 financial results and updated its 2019 financial guidance.

Highlights include:

Second-quarter 2019 net income was $24.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared with $20.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2018;
Year-to-date 2019 net income was $118.1 million, or $2.22 per diluted share, compared with $111.3 million, or $2.10 per diluted share, in the same period last year;
Updated 2019 net income guidance to the range of $180 million to $190 million, compared with the previous guidance range of $174 million to $190 million;
Actual heating degree days across the company's service areas were 581 in the second quarter 2019, 9% warmer than normal and 32% warmer than the same period last year; and
A quarterly dividend of $0.50 per share, or $2.00 per share on an annualized basis, was declared on July 22, 2019, payable Sept. 3, 2019, to shareholders of record at the close of business on Aug. 12, 2019.

"In the second quarter, we continued to see the positive impact of new rates on our net margin as a result of capital expenditures on system integrity and expansion, somewhat offset by overall warmer weather,” said Pierce H. Norton II, president and chief executive officer. "In addition, operating costs were slightly lower than the same period last year, as we maintain our focus on managing expenses while safely and reliably serving our customers."

SECOND-QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

ONE Gas reported operating income of $46.9 million in the second quarter 2019, compared with $41.0 million in the second quarter 2018.

Net margin, which is comprised of total revenues less cost of natural gas, increased by $9.6 million compared with second quarter 2018, which primarily reflects:

A $10.4 million increase from new rates; and
A $1.5 million increase attributed to net residential customer growth in Oklahoma and Texas; offset by

A $2.0 million decrease due to lower sales volumes, net of weather normalization, primarily in Kansas.

Second-quarter 2019 operating costs were $116.1 million, compared with $117.6 million in the second quarter 2018, due primarily to a $2.7 million decrease in employee-related expenses.

Depreciation and amortization expense for the second-quarter 2019 was $45.0 million, compared with $39.8 million in the second quarter 2018, due primarily to an increase in depreciation expense from capital investments placed in service, higher depreciation rates in Kansas and an increase in the amortization of the ad-valorem surcharge rider in Kansas.

For the second-quarter 2019, other expense, net, decreased $1.3 million compared with the same period last year, due primarily to earnings on investments associated with nonqualified employee benefit plans, which offset the increase in costs for the plans included in operating costs.

Second-quarter 2019 interest expense increased $3.4 million compared with the same period last year, resulting primarily from the refinancing of the company's $300 million Senior Notes, at a 2.07% interest rate, with $400 million Senior Notes, at a 4.50% interest rate, due November 2048.

Income tax expense for the second-quarter 2019 includes amortization of excess accumulated deferred income taxes (ADIT) of $2.1 million, which is offset in revenues.

Capital expenditures and asset removal costs increased $6.6 million for the second-quarter 2019 compared with the same period last year, due primarily to increased system integrity activities and extending service to new areas.

Key Statistics: More detailed information is listed on page 12 in the tables.

Actual heating degree days across the company’s service areas were 581 in the second quarter 2019, 9% warmer than normal and 32% warmer than the same period last year;
Actual heating degree days in the Oklahoma service area were 188 in the second quarter 2019, 2% warmer than normal and 44% warmer than the same period last year;
Actual heating degree days in the Kansas service area were 342 in the second quarter 2019, 14% warmer than normal and 30% warmer than the same period last year;
Actual heating degree days in the Texas service area were 51 in the second quarter 2019, 2% warmer than normal and 46% colder than the same period last year;
Residential natural gas sales volumes were 13.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf) in the second quarter 2019, down 14% compared with the same period last year;
Total natural gas sales volumes were 18.9 Bcf in the second quarter 2019, down 13% compared with the same period last year;

Operating income for the six-month 2019 period was $174.5 million, compared with $171.3 million for the same period last year.

Net margin increased by $17.5 million compared with the same period last year, which primarily reflects:

A $14.3 million increase from new rates in Kansas and Texas;
A $2.9 million increase attributed to net residential customer growth in Oklahoma and Texas; and
A $1.3 million increase due to higher sales volumes, net of weather normalization, in Texas; offset by

Operating costs for the six-month 2019 period were $240.6 million, compared with $236.4 million for the same period last year, which primarily reflects:

A $1.9 million increase in legal-related expenses; and
A $1.6 million increase in employee-related expenses.

Depreciation and amortization expense for the six-month 2019 period was $88.8 million, compared with $78.7 million for the same period last year, due primarily to an increase in depreciation expense from capital investments placed in service, higher depreciation rates in Kansas and an increase in the amortization of the ad-valorem surcharge rider in Kansas.

For the six-month 2019 period, other expense, net, decreased $3.9 million compared with the same period last year, due primarily to earnings on investments associated with nonqualified employee benefit plans, which offset the increase in costs for the plans included in operating costs.

Interest expense increased $6.8 million for the six-month 2019 period compared with the same period last year, resulting primarily from the refinancing of the company's $300 million Senior Notes, at a 2.07% interest rate, with $400 million Senior Notes, at a 4.50% interest rate, due November 2048.

Income tax expense for the six-month 2019 period includes amortization of excess ADIT of $8.9 million, which is offset in revenues.

REGULATORY UPDATE

Oklahoma

In March 2019, Oklahoma Natural Gas filed its third annual Performance-Based Rate Change (PBRC) application following the general rate case that was approved in January 2016. This filing was made in compliance with the January 2019 Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) order settling tax issues resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. This order requires that all earnings, including amounts attributable to tax savings, occurring in the 2018 calendar year that are above the authorized return on equity of 9.5% be returned to customers, with interest at the cost of capital rate. A settlement was reached, and a joint stipulation has been filed. This stipulation includes a PBRC credit of $15.6 million to be spread over a 12-month period and a credit of $12.7 million associated with excess ADIT. In June 2019, the Administrative Law Judge recommended that the OCC approve the joint stipulation. An order from the OCC is expected in the third quarter 2019.

As required, PBRC filings are made annually on or before March 15, until the next general rate case, which is required to be filed on or before June 30, 2021, based on a calendar 2020 test year.

Texas

West Texas Service Area

In March 2019, Texas Gas Service made Gas Reliability Infrastructure Program (GRIP) filings for all customers in the West Texas service area. The Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) and the cities agreed to an increase of $4.1 million, and new rates became effective in July 2019.

Central Texas Service Area

In March 2019, Texas Gas Service made GRIP filings for all customers in the Central Texas service area. The RRC and the cities agreed to an increase of $5.5 million, and new rates became effective in June 2019.

NON-GAAP INFORMATION

ONE Gas has disclosed net margin in this news release, which is considered a non-GAAP financial metric used to measure the company's financial performance. Net margin is comprised of total revenues less cost of natural gas. Cost of natural gas includes commodity purchases, fuel, storage, transportation and other gas purchase costs recovered through our cost of natural gas regulatory mechanisms and does not include an allocation of general operating costs or depreciation and amortization. In addition, these 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 natural 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% regulated natural gas utility than total revenues because the change in the cost of natural gas from period to period does not impact our operating income. A reconciliation of net margin to the most
