FINAL Enable Employee Recording





Good afternoon everyone, and thank you all for taking time with your busy schedules, maintaining safe and reliable operations and serving our customers and communities.



I hope with this unprecedented weather we’re experiencing that you and your loved ones are safe.



In more normal times, pre-pandemic and absent the extreme weather conditions that have many of you working around the clock to maintain operations, and others without power and connectivity, we would have joined together on a Town Hall. Given the conditions, I wanted to be sure I could speak to you directly and reach each employee, and that you could listen when you are available, and so I chose to record a message to each of you, as I have done in the Rodcasts over the past year.



As you know, yesterday we announced that Energy Transfer will be acquiring Enable in an all-equity transaction.



I’m sure you have questions, so let me offer some context and explain why we took this step forward for our organization.



First, I want to start by saying thank you to each and every one of you.



We’ve accomplished so much together, and I know that at the core of Enable’s success is and will always be our people.



You’ve demonstrated time and time again your ability to respond to change with agility and focus.



Thank you for your excellent work, commitment to operating safely and efficiently, and unrelenting efforts to help each other and the communities that depend on us.

Transaction Benefits



Now I want to address the transaction with Energy Transfer…



Energy Transfer is one of the largest and most diversified midstream energy companies in the country.



Our Sponsors and Board have been evaluating the best course of action to deliver value to our owners and unit holders.



Energy Transfer brings significant strategic value with a tax efficient transaction for unitholders.



Combining our complementary assets provides scope and scale with basin, commodity, and customer diversity that have been key elements of Enable’s strategic goals.


Additionally, the combination positions Enable’s assets in an entity that provides services and captures opportunities along the full midstream value chain, another long term goal of Enable.



The transaction affords deeper access to capital to invest in our assets along with a more competitive cost of capital to capture opportunities and for enhanced growth, with synergies and efficiencies that improve run-rate costs.



Importantly, we operate with similar values and culture, including safety above all else, putting people first, providing exceptional customer service, and conducting business with the utmost integrity while pursuing operational excellence.



Just as important, our two companies share a passion and commitment to creative solutions and innovation to help solve our customers toughest problems. By joining with Energy Transfer, we can do even more to power the communities and businesses we serve across the midstream value chain.



Further, the all-equity nature of the transaction will allow Enable unitholders to participate in the upside potential of this powerful combination. After closing, Enable unitholders will own approximately 12% of the combined company.

What this Means for Employees



So what happens next…



Well, our transaction is expected to close in mid-2021, subject to customary closing conditions and various required regulatory clearances.



Following the close of the transaction, the combined company will be led by the Energy Transfer senior management team.



I’m sure you’re all wondering how this will impact you.



I want you to know that our Sponsors and our Board did not make this decision lightly.



Our Sponsors have a responsibility to their shareholders with respect to their investment in Enable, and as a publicly traded company, Enable considers the interests of its unitholders as well.



This was a difficult decision as we understand the transaction may have an impact on employees and secondees of Enable.



We have been very mindful of this and worked together with Energy Transfer on employee related issues with a shared commitment to you.



This commitment will continue in the months ahead as Energy Transfer works through organizational decisions.



We will be establishing an integration team with Energy Transfer to ensure a detailed and thoughtful plan is developed, and we are committed to keeping you informed

Moving Forward / Next Steps



Of course, our announcement is just the first step toward bringing our two companies together.



For now, and until the closing, following the receipt of customary regulatory clearances, it remains business as usual for all of us.


All operations and daily responsibilities remain unchanged.



Please keep in mind that, until the transaction is fully completed, we’ll continue to operate as separate and independent companies.



You may have friends or former colleagues at Energy Transfer, but we ask that you not communicate or coordinate activities with them at this time, unless you are specifically asked to do so as part of the integration planning process. I want to reiterate that we will continue to operate as an independent company until the transaction closes.



Thank you for your hard work and dedication to Enable. Your efforts have driven our success and we are confident in the future with Energy Transfer.
