Mr. Lay,

I hope this note finds you in good health. I wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year.

I am currently working with a group of former Enron employees negotiating with several entities to join one of their organizations to trade various commodities (excluding power and gas). A couple of the entities have shown definitive interest in hiring the group, but our employment at Enron and employment contracts have created significant issues. In order for us to continue with the discussions and the possibility of employment, we have been asked to provide a letter from Enron representing that we have been released from the obligations of our various employment contracts, specifically the non-compete provision.

I know you very interested in assisting former Enron employees in succeeding with their lives and careers. I would very much appreciate your personal help and support in this matter.

I spoke with Rosalee yesterday (January 10th) and she suggested I email this note to you with the names of the other members of this group that may have issues with their employment contracts. The individuals other than myself are Bryan Burnett, Jeff Ader and Mark Bernstein.

Timing as always is important, I will follow up with Rosalee Monday afternoon to determine a time that I can go the office to pick up the letters.

I know you have tremendous demands on your time during this difficult period, I sincerely appreciate your attention and support. As before, if there is anything I can do for you or family, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Edward Ondarza
