YORK, Pa., Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The York Water Company's (NASDAQ:YORW) President, JT Hand, announced the Company's financial results for the second quarter and the first six months of 2021.

President Hand reported that second quarter operating revenues of $13,801,000 increased $481,000 and net income of $4,484,000 increased $302,000 compared to the second quarter of 2020. Basic and Diluted Earnings per share of $0.35 for the three-month period increased $0.03 compared to the same period last year. Increased revenues were primarily due to growth in the customer base and higher billing and revenue collection services. The increased revenue was partially offset by higher operation and maintenance expenses and depreciation. Income taxes decreased due to higher deductions from the IRS tangible property regulations.

President Hand also reported that the first six months operating revenues of $26,882,000 increased $685,000 and net income of $8,189,000 increased $5,000 compared to the first six months of 2020 which included a non-recurring gain on life insurance of $515,000 not repeated in 2021. Increased revenues were primarily due to growth in the customer base and higher billing and revenue collection services. The increased revenue was partially offset by higher operation and maintenance expenses and depreciation. Income taxes decreased due to higher deductions from the IRS tangible property regulations. Basic and Diluted Earnings per share were $0.63 for the six-month period, the same as the first six months of last year.

During the first six months of 2021, the Company invested $16.0 million in construction expenditures for an upgrade to the enterprise software system as well as various replacements and improvements to infrastructure. The Company estimates it will invest an additional $16.5 million in 2021, excluding acquisitions, for additional main extensions, an elevated water tank, completion 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.
