GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Utilities - Regulated » Utilities - Diversified
Compare:GDFZY, NWE, ENLAY, EONGY, ECIFY » details
Traded in other countries:BHI.Germany,
Black Hills Corp was incorporated and began providing electric utility service in 1941. It was formed through the purchase and combination of several existing electric utilities and related assets, some of which had served customers in the Black Hills region since 1883. In 1956, the Company began producing, selling and marketing various forms of energy through non-regulated businesses. The Company operates in the United States with two major business groups: Utilities and Non-regulated Energy. The Utilities Group is comprised of regulated Electric Utilities and regulated Gas Utilities segments, and the Non-regulated Energy Group is comprised of Power Generation, Coal Mining and Oil and Gas segments. The Electric Utilities segment generates, transmits and distributes electricity to approximately 203,500 electric customers in South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado and Montana and also distributes natural gas to approximately 35,500 gas utility customers of Cheyenne Light in and around Cheyenne, Wyo. The Gas Utilities segment serves approximately 538,000 natural gas utility customers in Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas. The Power Generation segment produces electric power from generating plants and sells the electric capacity and energy primarily to utilities under long-term contracts. The Coal Mining segment produces coal at coal mine near Gillette, Wyo., and sells the coal primarily under long-term contracts to electric generation facilities including own regulated and non-regulated generating plants. The Oil and Gas segment engages in the exploration, development and production of crude oil and natural gas, primarily in the Rocky Mountain region. The Company conducts electric utility operations and combination electric and gas utility operations through three subsidiaries: Black Hills Power (South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana), Cheyenne Light (Wyoming), and Colorado Electric (Colorado). It conducts natural gas utility operations on a state-by-state basis through Colorado Gas, Nebraska Gas, Iowa Gas and Kansas Gas subsidiaries. The Company also provides non-regulated services through our Service Guard and Tech Services product lines. Service Guard primarily provides appliance repair services to approximately 62,000 residential customers through company technicians and third party service providers, typically through on-going monthly service agreements. Tech Services primarily serves gas transportation customers throughout our service territory by constructing customer-owned gas infrastructure facilities, typically through one-time contracts, with a limited number of on-going monthly maintenance agreements.
