Our corporate segment includes our nonoperating business units. AGL Services Company is a service company we established to provide certain centralized shared services to our operating segments. We allocate substantially all of AGL Services Company’s operating expenses and interest costs to our operating segments in accordance with state regulations. AGL Capital, our wholly owned finance subsidiary, provides for our ongoing financing needs through a commercial paper program, the issuance of various debt and hybrid securities, and other financing arrangements. Our corporate segment also includes intercompany eliminations for transactions between our operating business segments.
