WHEREAS, on February 28, 2014, Atmos filed with the ACSC Cities an application, hereinafter referred to as the 2014 RRM filing, to adjust rates pursuant to Rider RRM - Rate Review Mechanism, which were subsequently consolidated into GUD No. 10359 at the Railroad Commission of Texas; and WHEREAS, on February 27, 2015, Atmos filed with the ACSC Cities an application, hereinafter referred to as the 2015 RRM filing, to adjust rates pursuant to Rider RRM - Rate Review Mechanism; and WHEREAS, the Settlement Agreement resolves all issues between Atmos and ACSC ("the Signatories") regarding the 2014 RRM filing, which is currently pending before the Commission, and the 2015 RRM filing, which is currently pending before the ACSC Cities, in a manner that the Signatories believe is consistent with the public interest, and the Signatories represent diverse interests; and WHEREAS, the Signatories believe that the resolution of the issues raised in the 2014 RRM filing and the 2015 RRM filing can best be accomplished by each ACSC City approving this Settlement Agreement and the rates, terms and conditions reflected in the tariffs attached to this Settlement Agreement as Exhibit A; NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements and covenants established herein, the Signatories, through their undersigned representatives, agree to the 1 Ordinance 749 Attachment A following Settlement Terms as a means of fully resolving all issues between Atmos and the ACSC Cities involving the 2014 RRM filing and 2015 RRM filing: Settlement Terms 1. Upon the execution of this Settlement Agreement, the ACSC Cities will approve an ordinance or resolution to approve the Settlement Agreement and implement the rates, terms and conditions reflected in the tariffs attached to the Settlement Agreement as Exhibit A. (Attachment A to the Ordinance ratifying the Agreement). Said tariffs should allow Atmos to recover annually an additional $65.7 million in revenue over the amount allowed under currently approved rates by implementation of rates shown in the proof of revenues attached as Exhibit B. (Attachment B to the Ordinance ratifying this Agreement). The uniform implementation of gas rates, terms and conditions established by the Settlement Agreement shall be effective for bills rendered on or after June 1, 2015. Consistent with the City's authority under Section 103.001 of the Texas Utilities Code, the Settlement Agreement represents a comprehensive settlement of gas utility rate issues affecting the rates, operations and services offered by Atmos within the municipal limits of the ACSC Cities arising from Atmos' 2014 RRM filing and 2015 RRM filing. No refunds of charges billed to customers by Atmos under the RRM in past periods shall be owed or owing. 2. In an effort to streamline the regulatory review process, Atmos and the ACSC Cities have agreed to renew the Rate Review Mechanism ("Rider RRM") for a period commencing with the Company's March 1, 2016 filing under this mechanism for the calendar year 2015, effective June 1, 2016, and continuing thereafter until such time as either the ACSC Cities issue an ordinance stating a desire to discontinue the operation of the tariff or Atmos files a Statement of Intent. Atmos and the ACSC Cities further agree that the RRM tariff shall remain in effect until such time as new, final rates are established for Atmos. Upon approval of this Settlement Agreement by the ACSC Cities, Atmos shall file an updated RRM Tariff with each city reflecting the provisions of this agreement. 3. Atmos and the ACSC Cities agree that rate base as of December 31, 2014 in the amount of$1,955,948,256 is just and reasonable and shall be recovered in rates. 4. Atmos and the ACSC Cities agree that a pension and other postemployment benefits balance as of December 31, 2014 in the amount of$18,284,949 is just and reasonable and shall be used as the beginning balance for purposes of determining pension and other postemployment benefits to be recovered in the next RRM filing (Attachment D to the Ordinance ratifying the Agreement). 5. With regard to the treatment of Atmos' Rule 8.209 regulatory asset under the RRM, Atmos and the ACSC Cities agree to the following with respect to any pending and future RRM filings: a. the capital investment in the Rule 8.209 regulatory asset in the 2014 RRM filing and 2015 RRM filing is reasonable and consistent with the requirements of Rule 8.209; 2 Attachment A b. the classification of projects included in the Rule 8.209 regulatory asset in the 2014 RRM filing and 2015 RRM filing is reasonable and consistent with the requirements of Rule 8.209 and shall serve as a basis for classification of projects in future RRM filings; c. the treatment of blanket replacement projects, system upgrades, relocations, and transmission line replacements in the Rule 8.209 regulatory asset in the 2014 RRM filing and 2015 RRM filing is reasonable and consistent with the requirements of Rule 8.209 and shall be included in future RRM filings. d. the incurred expenses included in the Rule 8.209 regulatory asset in the 2014 RRM and the 2015 RRM are reasonable and consistent with the requirements of Rule 8.209 and shall be included in future RRM filings; e. interest on the Rule 8.209 regulatory asset account shall be calculated using the pre-tax cost of capital most recently approved by the Commission. The use of the pre-tax cost of capital is consistent with Rule 8.209. A return on Rule 8.209 capital investment is only earned once the investment is included in rate base. No change in the Company's calculation of the interest component in its Rule 8.209 regulatory asset accounts is warranted through the period ended May 31, 2015. Beginning June 1,2015, interest expense shall be calculated monthly using simple interest(i.e. 11.49%divided by 12, or approximately 0.96%per month) applied to the total value of the Rule 8.209 asset investment (exclusive of interest)until such time the Rule 8.209 regulatory asset is approved for inclusion in the Company's rate base. f. While Atmos and the ACSC Cities agree to apply the treatments and methodologies set forth in this paragraph, subsections (a) — (e) in all future RRM filings, the regulatory authority retains its right to disallow any capital investment that is not shown to be prudently incurred, and any expense not shown to be reasonable and necessary, in future RRM filings. g. Atmos and the ACSC Cities acknowledge that their agreement regarding the treatment and methodologies applicable to Rule 8.209 capital investments under the RRM tariff shall not prejudice the right of either party to argue for different treatments or methodologies in a future statement of intent proceeding. 6. Revenues approved pursuant to Paragraph 1 of the Settlement Agreement include reimbursement of rate case expenses owed to the ACSC Cities in connection with the 2014 RRM filing. 7. The Signatories agree that each ACSC city shall approve this Settlement Agreement and adopt an ordinance or resolution to implement for the ACSC Cities the rates, terms, and conditions reflected in the tariffs attached to the Settlement Agreement as Exhibit A. Atmos and ACSC further agree that at such time as all of the ACSC Cities have passed an ordinance or resolution consistent with the Settlement and Atmos has received such ordinance or resolution,Atmos shall withdraw its appeal of the currently pending RRM filing before the Railroad Commission of Texas in connection with the 2014 RRM filing. 3 Attachment A 8. Atmos and the ACSC Cities further agree that the express terms of the Rider RRM are supplemental to the filing, notice, regulatory review, or appellate procedural process of the ratemaking provisions of Chapter 104 of the Texas Utilities Code. If the statute requires a mandatory action on behalf of the municipal regulatory authority or Atmos, the parties will follow the provisions of such statute. If the statute allows discretion on behalf of the municipal regulatory authority, the ACSC Cities agree that they shall exercise such discretion in such a way as to implement the provisions of the RRM tariff. If Atmos appeals an action or inaction of an ACSC City regarding an RRM filing to the Railroad Commission,the ACSC Cities agree that they will not oppose the implementation of interim rates or advocate the imposition of a bond by Atmos consistent with the RRM tariff. Atmos agrees that it will make no filings on behalf of its Mid-Tex Division under the provisions of Section 104.301 of the Texas Utilities code while the Rider RRM is in place. In the event that a regulatory authority fails to act or enters an adverse decision regarding the proposed annual RRM adjustment, the Railroad Commission of Texas shall have exclusive appellate jurisdiction, pursuant to the provisions of the Texas Utilities Code, to review the action or inaction of the regulatory authority exercising exclusive original jurisdiction over the RRM request. In addition, the Signatories agree that this Settlement Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of the ACSC Cities' right to initiate a show cause proceeding or the Company's right to file a Statement of Intent under the provisions of the Texas Utilities Code. 9. The Signatories agree that the terms of the Settlement Agreement are interdependent and indivisible, and that if any ACSC city enters an order that is inconsistent with this Settlement Agreement, then any Signatory may withdraw without being deemed to have waived any procedural right or to have taken any substantive position on any fact or issue by virtue of that Signatory's entry into the Settlement Agreement or its subsequent withdrawal. If any ACSC city rejects this Settlement Agreement, then this Settlement Agreement shall be void ab initio and counsel for the ACSC Cities shall thereafter only take such actions as are in accordance with the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. 10. The Signatories agree that all negotiations, discussions and conferences related to the Settlement Agreement are privileged, inadmissible, and not relevant to prove any issues associated with Atmos' 2014 RRM filing and 2015 RRM filing. 11. The Signatories agree that neither this Settlement Agreement nor any oral or written statements made during the course of settlement negotiations may be used for any purpose other than as necessary to support the entry by the ACSC Cities of an ordinance or resolution implementing this Settlement Agreement. 12. The Signatories agree that this Settlement Agreement is binding on each Signatory only for the purpose of settling the issues set forth herein and for no other purposes, and, except to the extent the Settlement Agreement governs a Signatory's rights and obligations for future periods, this Settlement Agreement shall not be binding or precedential upon a Signatory outside this proceeding. 4 Attachment A 13. The Signatories agree that this Settlement Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts and may be filed with facsimile signatures. 5 Attachment A Agreed to this 7 day of May,2015. f ATMOS ENERGY CORP.,MID-TEX DIVISION f By: JoK A.Paris President,Mid-Tex Division 9 y� q� 6 Attachment A ay Agreed to this 7-9, dof May 2015.

Computation of Weather Normalization Adjustment The Weather Normalization Adjustment Factor shall be computed to the nearest one-hundredth cent per Ccf by the following formula: (HSFi x (NDD-ADD)) WNAFi = Ri (BLi + (HSFi x ADD) } Where i = any particular Rate Schedule or billing classification within any such particular Rate Schedule that contains more than one billing classification WNAFi = Weather Normalization Adjustment Factor for the ith rate schedule or classification expressed in cents per Ccf Ri = Commodity Charge rate of temperature sensitive sales for the ith schedule or classification. HSFi = heat sensitive factor for the ith schedule or classification divided by the average bill count in that class NDD = billing cycle normal heating degree days calculated as the simple ten-year average of actual heating degree days. ADD = billing cycle actual heating degree days. Bli = base load sales for the ith schedule or classification divided by the average bill count in that class The Weather Normalization Adjustment for the jth customer in ith rate schedule is computed as: WNA;= WNAFi x q;j Where q;j is the relevant sales quantity for the jth customer in ith rate schedule.
