Use of Insider Information
ONE Gas employees, officers and board members must exercise care not to use insider information in trading securities.
It is illegal to buy or sell securities (including, for example, stock, bonds or options) of a company including company securities at a time when you are aware of “material, non-public information” or “insider information.”
Communicating insider information to someone who may buy or sell company securities is also prohibited. The prohibition on insider trading applies to the company’s securities and to securities of other companies if the employee, officer or board member learns of material non-public information about those other public companies in the course of his or her duties for the company. This prohibition also extends to certain non-employees who may learn about material non-public information about the company, such as spouses, relatives and close friends of employees, officers and board members.
