The Bonds are being issued pursuant to Laclede Gas' registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-190388-01) (the "Registration Statement"), which became effective upon filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the related prospectus dated August 6, 2013 and prospectus supplement dated August 6, 2013.
