Our goal is to contribute to a society that is healthy, educated and productive by strengthening the communities we serve. As a power provider, our revenue growth is directly tied to the economic health of the communities we serve. Communities must have a strong education system, healthy environment and rich quality of life to attract businesses, families and individuals and grow the local economy. Our approach is focused on contributing to economic development, engaging with our communities, strategic giving and volunteerism.

Actions in response to corruption incidents

Entergy has not adopted the practice of publicly reporting on non-material breaches against our Code of Entegrity. Further, the Company has not experienced any material breaches in its corruption or bribery policy, so no public reporting has been necessary from a legal or regulatory perspective. A comprehensive report on ethical performance is reviewed by the audit committee of our Board of Directors.

Entergy did not experience any material breaches of the Code of Entegrity, including anti-corruption and bribery policies, during 2015 (and year-to-date in 2016).

Anti-Competitive Behavior

SO7

Non-competitive behavior

Fully disclosed

In September 2010, Entergy was notified that the U.S. Department of Justice had commenced a civil investigation of competitive issues concerning certain generation procurement, dispatch and transmission system practices and policies of the Utility operating companies. In November 2012 the U.S. Department of Justice issued a press release in which the U.S. Department of Justice stated, among other things, that the civil investigation concerning certain generation procurement, dispatch, and transmission system practices and policies of the Utility operating companies would remain open. The release noted, however, the intention of each of the utility operating companies to join MISO and Entergy's agreement with ITC to undertake the spin-off and merger of Entergy's transmission business. The release stated that if Entergy follows through on these matters, the U.S. Department of Justice's concerns will be resolved. The release further stated that the U.S. Department of Justice will monitor developments, and in the event that Entergy does not make meaningful progress, the U.S. Department of Justice can and will take appropriate enforcement action, if warranted.

On Dec. 13, 2013, Entergy and ITC mutually agreed to terminate the transaction following denial by the MPSC of the joint application related to the transaction. On Dec. 19, 2013, the utility operating companies successfully completed their planned integration into the MISO RTO.

The investigation was reported in the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarter-ended September 30, 2010, page 19, Form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2010, page 28, 2012 SEC Form 10-K, page 34, 2013 SEC Form 10-K, page 32, 2014 SEC Form 10-K, page 50.

Entergy did not experience any material breaches of its Antitrust Policy in 2014.
