(AP) Laclede will buy two of Southern Union Co.'s utilities, Missouri Gas Energy and New England Gas Co., for $1.02 billion.

The deal announced Monday also includes the assumption of about $20 million in debt, so the companies value it at nearly $1.04 billion.

The utilities had combined revenue of about $517 million in the 12 months ending in September.The deal will double Laclede's customer base to 1.2 million.


The Laclede Group Inc. is based in St. Louis. Southern Union is based in Houston.
