The Hand We Were Dealt

You have to play the cards you are dealt – that’s true. And many cards are dealt purely by chance. Exceptional market volatility, falling commodity prices and one of the worst economic downturns since the Great Depression – those were among the chance cards dealt in 2009. Those external conditions created tremendous operational and financial challenges for Entergy throughout 2009, yet were not without opportunities.

However, there are other cards – trump cards – that are not acquired by chance. At Entergy, we are adaptable in our pursuit of growth and relentless in our drive to safely deliver clean, reliable and affordable power to our customers. These are among the strengths of our organization.

In this report, we present Entergy’s distinctive strengths and outline how we deliberately apply these strengths to overcome external challenges and advance steadily toward our long-term aspirations.
