Despite a decrease in net income compared to the previous year, EQT Corporation demonstrated resilience in its revenue generation. The company's sales of natural gas, natural gas liquids, and oil remained a significant revenue driver, contributing $5.04 billion to the total operating revenues. The gain on derivatives of $1.84 billion also positively impacted the company's financial performance. Management attributed the decrease in net income to decreased sales of natural gas, NGLs, and oil, which was partially offset by the gain on derivatives and decreased income tax expense.
EQT Corporation faced challenges in its operating expenses, which amounted to $4.59 billion in the latest quarter. Transportation and processing expenses accounted for the largest portion, totaling $2.16 billion. Production expenses amounted to $254.70 million, while exploration expenses were relatively minimal at $3.33 million. Selling, general, and administrative expenses reached $236.17 million, and depreciation and depletion expenses were $1.73 billion. The company also incurred impairment and expiration of leases expenses of $109.42 million.
It is worth noting that EQT Corporation's net income attributable to the company for the latest quarter was $1.73 billion, resulting in earnings per diluted share of $4.22. This represents a decrease compared to the previous year's net income of $1.77 billion and earnings per diluted share of $4.38. The decrease in net income was primarily attributed to decreased sales of natural gas, NGLs, and oil, partially offset by the gain on derivatives and decreased income tax expense.
EQT Corporation faced a decline in revenue in the latest quarter, primarily driven by decreased sales of natural gas, NGLs, and oil. However, the company demonstrated strengths in its revenue generation, particularly through sales of natural gas, NGLs, and oil, as well as gains on derivatives. Despite challenges in operating expenses, EQT Corporation maintained a solid financial position. The decrease in net income was primarily attributed to decreased sales, but the company's management remains optimistic about its performance.
