Answei'Ing today i~ Dicl~ Weygandt, Vice Pre ~en animal Services, SL..~,e;,o ,\ Treasurer. QUESTION: • Why can't you sacrifice some profit in these hard times? ANSWER: Because there }us: enough profit in our business for th,- to be any to sacri- fice. The bulk of the money we take in goes to pay the bills for all the go :rod services we must buy to continue provide the electric service that our custer s need• Profit, as it is commonly thought of, is used for two things: (1) A portion is retained in the business to help pay for needed new facilities and (2) The other portion is paid to the stockholders as a return on their in- vested money. In past years we were able to pay more than half the cost of new construction from "profit." But now our earnings are down to the point that we can pay for less than a third. That means borrowing more money at very high interest rates--another cost that goes into electric bills. Most stockholders are just ordinary people, many depending for existence on dividends, the return on their invested savings. Some of the shares are held by pension funds and insurance companies, the soundness of which depends on adequate returns on their invest- merits. It is unfortunate that many people ha~e been led to believe that a company that makes a profit is overcharging, Profit is just what is left over to improve the business and to pay investors for the use of their savings. Any business without a profit, wisely used, cannot last long. For more information on how inflation ab fects our business and your electric bills, please write to our Customer Services Department.
