CMS Energy's CEO Hosts Investor Meeting (Transcript)

Stocks in this article: CMS

(Video Presentation)

(That's the way) give up after launch gives you a good perspective of the company, Tom Webb and Dave Mengebier put that together for us. I wanted to start out with something that was kind of our history, to have the proud moment of what we have actually done through the years and what we deliver for you as investors. What we want to do today and what I'll start out with is to give you an overview of our strategy, the way our strategy works, they way we have accomplished the strategy and what we'll be looking at our priorities going forward. I also agree with what Tom said we want you to have an interaction and time to talk to our executives, because it isn’t me that makes this happen, it’s them. And this is a chance for them to come see you, they'll answer your questions, they'll all be here to talk to you, and these are the people that really make it happen, which I do want to give them credit for.

Let's start with our strategy. I think, most of you are familiar with it. This is our growing forward strategy. It served us well through time and supports our vision, the vision to be best-in-class provide the best value to our shareholders and our customers and to ensure that our employees are proud to wear the colors. The foundation, as you can see here, is built on safe and excellent operations. If we do that well we can make the utility investments, which drive customer value, which in the end will get fair and timely regulation, which drives the consistent performance. The thing what about this strategy that served us so well is that it's durable, it's flexible, and it's balanced.

And as you can see in the video, it served us well for 10 years and that will serve us the same for the next 5 to 10 years going forward, but the key to success of any strategy is its execution. And this is something I haven’t talked to you much about is how did we get to where we are today and we had a chance over launch to talk to some of you about, some of the history we've had at CMS. And there were some legacy issues that we had overcome, but the key to any successful strategy, I believe is to ensure that the company focuses on the execution of the strategy in everything that we do. And I want to show you how we have done that over the past several years.
