"Structured Derivatives" holds the spread options from the Eastern VPS
deals. We hedge with swaps to the power and gas books, leaving all our gamma
and vega exposure. The $43mm is a big gamma loss because of the moving power
curve and a big vega loss because of the moving gas volatility curve.

I am looking to change the loss violation reporting so we report power and
gas numbers including any movements in the spread option book. Ted Murphy

be aware of. We wanted to put several major adjustments through on the same
day. The main moves are as follows:

<Power Peaks down, off-peaks up across the whole curve. Gain o10mm

$43mm today, with power making approx $40mm to off-set. The $43mm may need
to be reported to Skilling, even though the real loss is just the gas loss of

represents the main issues to be aware of. Net on the day we are up, and
still expect to hit Q4 targets.).
