KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 3, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- The improved performance of Aquila's (NYSE:ILA) electric and natural gas utility businesses in five states was offset by costs associated with the company's repositioning program. As a result, Aquila today reported a net loss of $155 million for the 2006 second quarter ending June 30, or a fully diluted loss of 41 cents per share, compared to a net loss of $27.2 million, or 6 cents per fully diluted share, in the second quarter of 2005. Primary factors in the current quarter's net loss were $218 million of charges related to an assignment of the company's Elwood tolling contracts and $22.7 million of costs associated with the early retirement of $350 million in debt.
