American States Water Co. (NYSEAWR) is an American water and electricity utility company. It was founded in 1929 and is headquartered in San Dimas, California.[2] The company has 50-year privatization contracts with U.S. government as a government contractor for its water system service.[3] It is the water utility provider for about 246,000 customers and the electricity provider for over 23,000 customers in Big Bear Lake and California.[2][3]

Background[edit]

As of February 2014, the company has a market capitalization of $ 1.12 billion and an enterprise value of 1.42 billion. [4] It operates its business through three segments including water, electric and contracted service.[5]

The company is the parent company of Golden State Water Company (GSWC) and American States Utility Services, Inc. (ASUS) as well as its subsidiaries.[6] GSWC serves more than 45,000 customers and ASUS is a contractor of U.S. government.[5]
