LAS VEGAS: Southwest Gas Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SWX) ("Southwest Gas" or the "Company") today reported first quarter 2023 financial results.

"We delivered strong financial results at both the utility and Centuri during the quarter, with constructive new rates in place for Arizona utility customers and exciting new offshore wind and natural gas contracts at Centuri," said Karen S. Haller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Southwest Gas. "We have now completed our 2023 financing plan and going forward, we expect to maintain an investment grade profile and enhance balance sheet flexibility. We are making significant progress on our transformation strategy through the recent close of the sale of MountainWest and advancing the Centuri spin with IRS and Arizona Corporation Commission filings, and we are excited about Southwest Gas' future as a pure-play natural gas leader as we focus on delivering continued earnings growth. We remain committed to executing our strategic plan as we address the needs of our customers, deliver safe and affordable energy, and invest in the communities we serve and our employees, while maximizing value for our stockholders."
