NOTICE OF PENDENCY AND PARTIAL SETTLEMENT OF CLASS ACTIO N TO : (1) ALL PERSONS WHO PURCHASED OR ACQUIRED PUBLICLY TRADED EQUITY OR DEBT SECURITIES OF ENRON CORPORATION (INCLUDING ALL SECURITIES ISSUED BY ENRON-RELATED ENTITIES, THE VALUE OR REPAYMENT OF WHICH WAS DEPENDENT ON THE CREDIT, FINANCIAL CONDITION, ORABILITYTO PAY OF ENRON CORPORATION) ("PUBLICLY TRADED SECURITIES"AS FURTHER DEFINED BELOW) DURING THE PERIOD FROM OCTOBER 19, 1998 THROUGH AND INCLUDING NOVEMBER27, 2001 ; AND (2)ALL STATES OR POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS THEREOF OR STATE PENSION PLANS THAT PURCHASED FROM DEFENDANTS ENRON' S 6 .40 % NOTES DUE 7/15/06 OR 6 .95% NOTES DUE 7/15/28 AND THAT AUTHORIZE THE PROSECUTION OF THEIR CLAIMS PURSUANT TO THE TEXAS SECURITIES AC T This Notice of Pendency and Partial Settlement of Class Action (the "Notice ") is given pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to inform you of the proposed partial settlement of these Actions (the "Settlement") and the hearing (the "Settlement Hearing") to be held by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas (the "Court") to consider thefairness, reasonableness and adequacy of the Settlement as set forth in the Stipulation of Settlement among the Representative Plaintiffs and BofA (as further defined below), dated as of October28 , 2004 ( the "Stipulation"), on file with the Court . All capitalized terms not defined prior to their use in this Notice have the meanings set forth in Section VIII, below.
I . STATEMENT OF PLAINTIFFS' RECOVER Y The Settlement will result in the creation of a cash settlement fund in the aggregate principal amount of Sixty-Nine Million Dollars ($69,000,000) plus any interest that may accrue thereon (the "Gross Settlement Fund"), which, subject to deduction fqr costs of notice and administration and certain taxes and tax related expenses and for attorneys' fees, costs and expenses as approved by the Court, will be available for distribution to Settlement Class Members (as defined below) . As described more fully below, the amount of any distribution to Settlement Class Members on a per share basis will depend on future Court proceedings and it is therefore not possible to estimate the amount of any such distribution at the present time . See Section Xl .
II . STATEMENT OF POTENTIAL OUTCOM E
Representative Plaintiffs and BofA do not agree on the average amount of damages per share that would have been recoverable from BofA if Representative Plaintiffs were to have prevailed on each claim asserted . The issues on which the parties disagree include : (1) whether BofA engaged in conduct that would give rise to any liability to the Settlement Class under the federal securities laws, Texas common law, or any other laws ; (2) whether BofA has valid defenses to any such claims of liability ; (3) the appropriate economic model for determining the amount by which the PubliclyTraded Securitieswere allegedly artificially inflated (if at all) during the Settlement Class Period ; (4) the amount by which the Publicly Traded Securities were allegedly artificially inflated (if at all) during the Settlement Class Period ; (5) the effect of various marketforces influencing the trading price of Publicly Traded Securities at various times during the Settlement Class Period ; (6)the extent to which external factors, such as general market conditions, influenced the trading price of Publicly Traded Securities atvarious times during the Settlement Class Period ; (7) the extent to which the various matters that Representative Plaintiffs alleged were materially false or misleading influenced (if at all) the trading price of Publicly Traded Securities at various times during the Settlement Class Period ; (8) the extent to which the various allegedly adverse material facts that Representative Plaintiffs alleged were omitted influenced (if at all) the trading price of the Publicly Traded Securities at various times during the Settlement Class Period ; (9) whether the statements made or facts allegedly omitted were false, material or otherwise actionable under the federal securities or other laws .
III . STATEMENT OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND EXPENSES SOUGH T
At a future date, upon further notice to the Settlement Class, counsel for the Representative Plaintiffs will apply to the Court for an award of attorneys' fees from the Gross Settlement Fund . No attorneys' fees are being sought at this time . However, the Stipulation provides for the allocation of Six Million Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars ($6,900,000) (the "Expense Fund") of the Gross Settlement Fund for reimbursement of expenses incurred and expected to be incurred by Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel in prosecuting the Actions . The Court will be asked to approve the establishment of the Expense Fund at the Settlement Hearing . IV. REASONS FOR SETTLEMENT The Representative Plaintiffs and their counsel believe that this Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate to the Members of the Settlement Class . The Representative Plaintiffs and their counsel have reached this conclusion after investigating and considering, among other things, the strengths and weaknesses of the Representative Plaintiffs' claims against BofA and BofA's defenses to those claims, the fact that BofA has been dismissed from certain of the Actions by Court Order dated December 20, 2002, the uncertainties of this complex litigation, and the benefit provided by the Settlement to the Members of the Settlement Class . See Section VII . V. IDENTIFICATION OF ATTORNEYS' REPRESENTATIVE S Any questions regarding the Settlement should be directed to Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel or their staff : RICK NELSO N LERACH COUGHLIN STOIA GELLER RUDMAN & ROBBINS LLP 401 B Street, Suite 160 0

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY . THIS NOTICE RELATES TOA PROPOSED PARTIAL SETTLEMENT OF THESE ACTIONS AND, IF YOU AREA SETTLEMENT CLASS MEMBER, CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION AS TO YOUR RIGHTS CONCERNING THE SETTLEMENT AS FURTHER DESCRIBED BELOW . EXCLUSION DEADLINE : REQUESTS FOR EXCLUSION MUST BE FILED SO AS TO BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN MARCH 28, 2005 . SECURITIES BROKERS AND OTHER NOMINEES : PLEASE SEE THE INSTRUCTIONS ON PAGE 7 BELOW .
VI . BACKGROUND OF THE LITIGATIO N BofA has been named as a defendant in the Newby Action . BofA moved to dismiss the Newby Action on the ground that the complaint failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted because plaintiffs failed to allege facts that would sustain a claim that BofA engaged in any actionable conduct . On December 20, 2002, the Court granted BofA's motion to dismiss all claims asserted against it under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "1934 Act") . BofA contends that this ruling necessarily requires dismissal of any 1934 Act claims that might be pursued against BofA in the Actions or in any of the other consolidated and coordinated actions .
VII. BACKGROUND OF THE SETTLEMEN T
Counsel for the Representative Plaintiffs have conducted an investigation relating to the claims and underlying events alleged in the complaints . Counsel for the Representative Plaintiffs also have conducted considerable formal and informal discovery in the Actions and in related litigation and have analyzed the evidence obtained therein, and have researched the applicable law with respect to the claims alleged in the complaints and the potential defenses thereto .
The Representative Plaintiffs, by their counsel, have conducted arm's-length negotiations with counsel for BofA with a view toward settling the issues in dispute and achieving the best result possible consistent with the interests of the Settlement Class .
Based upon their investigation, counsel for the Representative Plaintiffs have concluded that the terms of the Settlement as set forth in the Stipulation are fair, reasonable, and adequate to the Representative Plaintiffs and the Settlement Class, and in the best interest of the Representative Plaintiffs and the Settlement Class, and have agreed to settle the Actions as to BofA pursuant to the terms and provisions of the Stipulation, after considering (1) the benefits that the Representative Plaintiffs and the Settlement Class will receive from the Settlement ; (ii) the attendant risks of litigation ; and (iii) the desirability of permitting the Settlement to be consummated as provided by the terms of the Stipulation . BofA has denied and continues to deny each and all of the claims and allegations of wrongdoing made by the Representative Plaintiffs in the Actions and maintains furthermore that it has meritorious defenses . BofA has expressly denied and continues to deny all charges of wrongdoing or liability against it arising out of any of the conduct, statements, acts or omissions alleged, or that could have been alleged, in the Actions, and BofA vigorously contends that many of the factual allegations of the complaints relating to BofA were materially inaccurate . BofA also has denied and continues to deny, inter alia, the allegations that the Representative Plaintiffs or the Settlement Class Members were harmed by BofA's conduct alleged in the Actions. Pursuant to the terms of the Stipulation, the Stipulation shall in no event be construed or deemed to be evidence of or an admission or concession by BofA with respect to any claim of any fault or liability or wrongdoing or damage whatsoever . Nonetheless, BofA has concluded that further conduct of the Actions would be protracted and expensive, and that it is desirable that the Actions be fully and finally settled in the manner and upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Stipulation . BofA also has taken into account the uncertainty and risks inherent in any litigation, especially in complex cases like the Actions. BofA has, therefore, determined that it is desirable and beneficial to it that the Actions be settled in the manner and upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Stipulation . THIS NOTICE IS NOT INTENDED TO BE, AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS, AN EXPRESSION OF ANY OPINION BY THE COURT W ITH RESPECT TO THE TRUTH OF THE ALLEGATIONS IN THE ACTIONS OR THE MERITS OF THE CLAIMS OR DEFENSES ASSERTED . THIS NOTICE IS SOLELY TO ADVISE YOU OF THE PENDENCY OF THE ACTION AND THE PROPOSED PARTIAL SETTLEMENT THEREOF AND OF YOUR RIGHTS IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.

The Stipulation provides for the establishment of an Expense Fund in the amount of Six Million Nine Hundred Thousand Dollars ($6,900,000), which shall be paid from, and not in addition to, the Gross Settlement Fund . At the Settlement Hearing, the Court will be asked to approve the establishment of the Expense Fund . The Expense Fund will be used, subject to the Court's approval(s), to reimburse Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel for the expenses that they have incurred and expect to incur in the prosecution of the Actions . A portion of the Gross Settlement Fund will also be used to pay for this Notice as well as taxes and tax return preparation expenses regarding the interest earned on the Gross Settlement Fund . After further notice to the Settlement Class and an opportunity to be heard, Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel will seek approval by the Court of a Plan of Allocation that will govern the calculation of Settlement Class Members' claims against the Gross Settlement Fund . In the future, Settlement Class Members will be sent a Proof of Claim and Release form to establish their claims against the Gross Settlement Fund . Because of the aggregate amount of damages that Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel assert were suffered by Settlement Class Members, it is not economically feasible to distribute the Gross Settlement Fund to Settlement Class Members at this time . Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel anticipate that such distributions will occur in connection with additional recoveries against the remaining Defendants in the Actions .
B . Release s If the proposed Settlement is approved by the Court, the Court will enter an order (the "Order of Final Judgment and Dismissal") that will dismiss the Actions with prejudice as to BofA . In addition, upon the Effective Date, the Representative Plaintiffs and each of the Settlement Class Members, on behalf of themselves, their successors and assigns, and any other Person claiming (now or in the future) through or on behalf of them, and regardless of whether any such Representative Plaintiff or Settlement Class Member ever seeks or obtains by any means, including, without limitation, by submitting a Proof of Claim and Release, any distribution from the Gross Settlement Fund, shall be deemed to have, and by operation of the Judgment shall have, fully, finally, and forever released, relinquished, and discharged all Released Claims against BofA and shall have covenanted not to sue BofA with respect to all such Released Claims, and shall be permanently barred and enjoined from instituting, commencing, or prosecuting any such Released Claim against BofA . In addition, subjectto certain limitations set forth in the Stipulation, BofA will release the Representative Plaintiffs, the Settlement Class Members and Plaintiffs' Settlement Counsel from any claims relating to the prosecution of the Actions . The Court shall retain jurisdiction over these Actions, including, without limitation, all matters with respect to implementation and enforcement of the terms of the Stipulation .
