'2013 was a year of substantial progress for Emera,' said Chris Huskilson, President and CEO of Emera Inc. 'In addition to the strong financial results, most notably, the Maritime Link Project received final regulatory approval in November and Nalcor successfully completed its project financing in December. We are now working to complete the financing for the Maritime Link in the first half of 2014. Also, Emera Energy's marketing business had a very strong year, as they were well positioned to use acquired pipeline capacity through asset management agreements or direct pipeline reservations and their market experience to serve customers in the dynamic Northeast natural gas market. As well, the recently acquired gas plant assets in New England provided a positive contribution to earnings. Our progress during the year positions us well to deliver on future growth.'
