The sale of TECO Coal closed on 21 September. The company reported that the third quarter loss in discontinued operations of US$11.7 million and US$61.9 million in 2015 and 2014, respectively, is a reflection of the operating results and charges associated with the TECO Coal sale.

The year-to-date loss of US$67.2 million in discontinued operations is reported to reflect TECO Coal’s operating loss, net impairment charges of US$50.8 million recorded in the second quarter and the third-quarter medical related charge.

TECO Energy President and CEO, John Ramil, commented: “This has been a momentous quarter for TECO Energy marked by significant changes. On 4 September, we announced that Emera, Inc. would acquire TECO Energy for US$27.55 per share. On 21 September, we closed the sale of TECO Coal, our last unregulated business, thus completing our transformation to a regulated utility business. At the same time, our operating companies have delivered impressive results. Our Florida utilities have achieved year-to-date net income growth of almost 6%, and we are well positioned for New Mexico Gas to be accretive this year.”
