Southwest Gas Corp was incorporated in March 1931 under the laws of the state of California. The Company is composed of two business segments: natural gas operations ("Southwest" or the "natural gas operations" segment) and construction services. Southwest or natural gas operations segment is engaged in the business of purchasing, distributing, and transporting natural gas for customers in portions of Arizona, Nevada, and California. Southwest is the distributor of natural gas in Arizona, selling and transporting natural gas in of central and southern Arizona, including the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas. It distributes and transports natural gas for customers in portions of California, including the Lake Tahoe area and the high desert and mountain areas in San Bernardino County. It arranges for transportation of natural gas to its Arizona, Nevada, and California service territories through the pipeline systems of El Paso Natural Gas Company ("El Paso"), Kern River Gas Transmission Company ("Kern River"), Transwestern Pipeline Company ("Transwestern"), NWPL, Tuscarora Gas Pipeline Company ("Tuscarora"), Southern California Gas Company, and Paiute. Electric utilities are the principal competitors of Southwest for the residential and small commercial markets throughout its service areas. Southwest competes with interstate transmission pipeline companies, such as El Paso, Kern River, Transwestern and Tuscarora, to provide service to certain large end-users. NPL" or the "construction services" segment is engaged in full-service underground piping contractor that primarily provides utility companies with trenching and installation, replacement, and maintenance services for energy distribution systems. The operations of this segment are conducted from 23 field locations. The Company's operations are subject to inherent hazards and risks such as gas leaks, fires, natural disasters, explosions, pipeline ruptures, and other hazards and risks that might cause unforeseen interruptions, personal injury, or property damage.

Guru Investment Theses on Southwest Gas Corp

Mario Gabelli Comments on Southwest Gas Corp. - Jun 09, 2016

Southwest Gas Corp. (3.1%) (NYSE:SWX) (SWX – $65.85 – NYSE) is a natural gas distribution utility serving 1.9 million customers in geographically diverse portions of Arizona (~1.0 million, or 53%), Nevada (~700,000, or 37%), and California (~185,000, or 10%). From 2008 to 2010, customer growth slowed, due to the overall slowdown in the new housing market and the increase in idle/vacant homes resulting from foreclosures and challenging economic conditions. Over the past several years, customer growth has improved, and over the long term, we expect that the service area will return to higher growth rates as the favorable regional climate and lower housing prices attract customers to inhabit vacant homes. SWX also owns Centuri Construction Group, a full service underground piping contractor that provides trenching and installation, replacement, and maintenance services for energy distribution systems. The pipeline construction business is growing strongly, given the industry’s focus on safety related pipeline replacement programs and achieved the $1 billion revenue milestone. The 2014 acquisition of Link-Line Group’s pipeline construction business expanded the scope and scale of the business, allowing the potential for some type of financial engineering. We consider SWX to be a high quality gas utility with a focused, low risk strategy and solid earnings outlook, driven by recent and future rate increases, expanded infrastructure tracking mechanisms, customer growth, and cost controls.
