Intermountain Gas Company Acquisition Completed; Company Joins MDU Resources Group

MDU Resources Group, Inc. announced that its acquisition of Intermountain Gas Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of privately held Intermountain Industries, Inc., has been finalized. The enterprise value of the transaction, including indebtedness, is approximately $328 million.

Intermountain Gas, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, serves more than 300,000 customers in 74 communities in Idaho, including the Boise metropolitan area, Twin Falls, Sun Valley, Pocatello and Idaho Falls. Intermountain began operations in 1956 and employs 332 people.

“We are extremely pleased with this acquisition,” said Terry D. Hildestad, president and chief executive officer of MDU Resources. “Intermountain operates in a high-growth area and its employee base is outstanding. This is just a great fit for our utility business.”

With the addition of Intermountain, MDU Resources Group’s total utility customer base exceeds 930,000 customers.

“We’ve been in the utility business for more than 80 years,” said Dave Goodin, president and chief executive officer of the corporation’s utility business. “We are committed to continue the high level of service that Intermountain customers have come to expect.”

Intermountain is now an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of MDU Resources, continuing to operate as Intermountain Gas Company. Intermountain will join Montana-Dakota Utilities Co., Great Plains Natural Gas Co. and Cascade Natural Gas Corp. as MDU Resources utility business units. The utility business now serves approximately 810,000 natural gas customers in Idaho, North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming, as well as approximately 121,000 electric customers in North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming.
