YORK WATER COMPANY REPORTS 3rd QUARTER AND NINE MONTHS EARNINGS

York, Pennsylvania, November 6, 2020:  The York Water Company's (NASDAQ:YORW) President, JT Hand, announced the Company's financial results for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2020.

President Hand reported that third quarter operating revenues of $14,257,000 increased $577,000 and net income of $4,704,000 increased $221,000 compared to the third quarter of 2019.  Earnings per share of $0.36 for the three-month period increased $0.01 compared to the same period last year.  Increased revenues were primarily due to higher per capita residential consumption and growth in the customer base.  The increased revenue was partially offset by higher operation and maintenance expenses, depreciation, and income taxes due to lower deductions from the IRS tangible property regulations.  Interest expense decreased due to lower interest rates.

President Hand also reported that the first nine months operating revenues of $40,454,000 increased $1,895,000 and net income of $12,888,000 increased $1,875,000 compared to the first nine months of 2019.  Increased revenues resulted primarily from the March 1, 2019 rate increase, higher per capita residential consumption, and growth in the customer base partially offset by lower Distribution System Improvement Charge (DSIC) after its reset to zero.  DSIC is a Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PPUC) allowed charge that water utilities collect from customers for the replacement of aging infrastructure.  The Company also recognized a non-recurring gain on life insurance.  The increased income was partially offset by higher operation and maintenance expenses, depreciation, and income taxes due to higher taxable income partially offset by higher deductions from the IRS tangible property regulations.  Interest expense decreased due to lower interest rates.  Earnings per share of $0.99 for the nine-month period increased $0.14 compared to the same period last year.

During the first nine months of 2020, the Company invested $16.0 million in construction expenditures for replacement of a standpipe as well as various replacements and improvements to infrastructure.  In addition, the Company invested $1,158,000 in the acquisition of two wastewater systems.  The Company estimates it will invest an additional $12.2 million in 2020, excluding acquisitions, for reimbursement for the Amblebrook development water and wastewater infrastructure, additional main extensions, improvements to a raw water pumping station, expansion of a wastewater treatment plant, and routine improvements to its pipes, service lines, and other facilities to ensure a safe, adequate, and reliable supply of drinking water and to maintain proper handling and disposal of wastewater for the Company’s growing customer base.
