During the blackout period and for a two-year period thereafter, information about the actual beginning and ending dates of the blackout period may be obtained, without charge, by contacting Spectra Energy Corp, Attention: Charlotte Wayland, Vice President, Executive and US Benefits, 5400 Westheimer Ct., Houston, TX 77056-5310 (telephone (713) 627-5400).
