In September 1993, Southern Union Company acquired the Rio Grande Valley Gas
Company ("Rio Grande") for approximately $30,500,000 (the "Rio
Grande Acquisition"). Rio Grande currently serves approximately
75,000 customers in the south Texas counties of Willacy, Cameron
and Hidalgo which includes 32 towns and cities along the Mexico
border, including Harlingen, McAllen and Brownsville (the
southernmost city in the continental U.S.). The Company
initially funded the purchase with borrowings from its revolving
credit facility which were subsequently repaid with proceeds from
the sale of the Senior Debt Securities and the Rights Offering.
