Pros

They are recognized as a industry leader. Everyone is familiar with propane in some aspect.

Cons

The busness model is not built for organic growth. Growth is mainly through acquistions. AmeriGas is highly political, when it comes to advancement and pay raises. The business is very seasonal, warm winters are bad for business. AmeriGas is committed to paying the dividend to unit holders even if no profit is made. They will borrow money to pay the dividend.

Advice to Management

Focus on organic growth. You should have held onto the hard assets such as Bumstead, AZ storage. Selling off assets for short term gains does makew good long term sense.
