To My Fellow Shareholders and Employees:
At ONE Gas, 2014 was a year of firsts. As a new stand-alone, publicly traded company, it was the first year we were able to devote our full efforts to becoming a premier natural gas distribution company – one that is committed to creating exceptional value for our stakeholders.
We had a major challenge in year one to completely separate ourselves from our predecessor, ONEOK. Rather than spending the next few years relying on ONEOK for information technology services through transition agreements, we made it our goal to dedicate the capital dollars and the hours necessary to stand on our own in the first year. Not only was this accomplished, but we did it with time to spare and on budget.
