LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- NV Energy’s profits for the 2nd quarter are down almost nine percent compared to the same period last year. News 3’s Trevor Thompson has more on the reason for the dip.

Profits might be down for the quarter but there’s a pretty simple explanation why that is.

The reason is a planned merger with Warren Buffett’s Midamerican Energy company.

NV Energy incurred almost $14 million in costs related to that merger. That merger is still awaiting final approval, but experts say is likely to happen.

As a result of those costs second quarter profits fell six-point-two million dollars compared to last year.

Earnings per share also fell by two cents a share.

Despite the second quarter results, the company is actually more profitable through the first six months of this year than it was in 2012 thanks to a strong first quarter earlier this year.

More information about the company's financial report can be found at NV Energy's website.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
