The Value of Strategic Direction

This report focuses on natural gas distribution businesses and/or executives contemplating adding natural gas distribution businesses to their current business portfolio. To assist executives assessing strategic direction, we performed in-depth analyses of strategic focus, resulting return on equity (ROE), and shareholder return across the natural gas distribution companies.

Here, we review our analysis and examination of a panel of 10 natural gas distribution companies to show the relationship between strategic direction and resulting performance, both internal performance metrics and attendant shareholder return.
