Atmos Energy (ATO) Company Overview

Atmos Energy is the largest gas utilities company in the U.S. The company operates gas utilities in 12 states: Texas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Colorado, Kansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Virginia, though it has more customers in Texas than in the other 11 states combined. In total, the company has over 3 million customers.[1]

As a utilities operator, Atmos' businesses are subject to government price regulations, which vary from state to state. These regulations put a ceiling on the price that utilities companies can charge customers, as well as on the returns a company is allowed to gain from its holdings. Regulation is designed to ensure that utilities services are accessible but can still turn a profit, but they don't allow utilities like Atmos to pass cost fluctuations on to consumers as quickly as they occur. Utilities companies can lobby and negotiate with regulators to gain more favorable rules, but unfortunately for Atmos, the company's main operating areas are in Texas, where regulations are strict.
