Business Strategy and Outlook

| Stephen Ellis |

Williams Companies has shifted its strategy in recent years to focus on organic growth investments that improve the returns and competitive position of its legacy assets. We think this is a positive for investors, creating a more stable financial profile and more high-return growth opportunities than most of its midstream peers. Clean energy investments could become a material growth area in the next few years, with the recent Orsted partnership a particularly attractive growth engine for its Northwest portfolio.
