                  Laclede Group Inc is a public utility holding company formed through a corporate restructuring that became effective October 1, 2001. The Company has two business segments: Gas Utility and Gas Marketing. The Gas Utility segment inclu...moredes the regulated operations of Laclede Gas Company (the Utility). It is engaged in the retail distribution and sale of natural gas, and is the natural gas distribution utility in Missouri, serving more than 1.13 million residential, commercial and industrial customers. The Gas Marketing segment includes Laclede Energy Resources, Inc. (LER), a wholly owned subsidiary engaged in the marketing of natural gas and related activities on a non-regulated basis. The Utility focuses its gas supply portfolio around a number of natural gas suppliers with equity ownership or control...more of assets strategically situated to complement its regionally diverse firm transportation arrangements. It also engages in other businesses, including transportation of liquid propane regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as well as non-regulated activities, including, among other activities, real estate development, the compression of natural gas, and financial investments in other enterprises. It is engaged in the marketing of natural gas and providing energy services to both on-system utility transportation customers and customers outside of the Utilitys traditional service area. The Utility's business has monopoly characteristics in that it is the only distributor of natural gas within its franchised service areas. The principal competition are the local electric companies. Other competitors in the Utility's service areas include suppliers of fuel oil, coal, propane, natural gas pipelines which can directly connect to large volume customers, and district steam systems in the downtown areas of both St. Louis and Kansas City. The Company is subject to various environmental laws and regulations. Laclede Group is also engaged in other activities such as real estate development, compression of natural gas, and financial investments in other enterprises.lessless
