Item 1.01. Entry Into Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 8, 2022, The Williams Companies, Inc. (the “Company”) completed a registered offering (the “Offering”) of $1.00 billion aggregate principal amount of 4.650% Senior Notes due 2032 (the “2032 Notes”) and $750 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.300% Senior Notes due 2052 (the “2052 Notes” and, together with the 2032 Notes, the “Notes”). The Offering has been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-253451) of the Company (the “Registration Statement”), and the prospectus supplement dated August 3, 2022 and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Securities Act on August 5, 2022 (the “Prospectus Supplement”).

The Notes were issued pursuant to an Indenture (the “Base Indenture), dated as of December 18, 2012, between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by the Sixth Supplemental Indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture,” and together with the Base Indenture, the Indenture), dated as of August 8, 2022, between the Company and the Trustee. Each of the 2032 Notes and the 2052 Notes are represented by a global security, the applicable form of which is included as an exhibit to the Supplemental Indenture.

The 2032 Notes will pay interest semi-annually in cash in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on February 15, 2023. The 2052 Notes will pay interest semi-annually in cash in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on February 15, 2023. The Notes are the Company’s senior unsecured obligations and will rank equally in right of payment with all of its other senior indebtedness and senior to all of its future indebtedness that is expressly subordinated in right of payment to the Notes.

The Indenture contains covenants that, among other things, restrict the Company’s ability to incur liens on assets to secure certain debt and merge, consolidate or sell, assign, transfer, lease convey or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets, subject to certain qualifications and exceptions. The Indenture includes customary events of default, including payment defaults and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization.

The Company may redeem some or all of the Notes at any time or from time to time prior to May 15, 2032, in the case of the 2032 Notes, and February 15, 2052, in the case of the 2052 Notes, at a specified “make-whole” premium described in the Indenture. The Company also has the option at any time or from time to time on or after May 15, 2032, in the case of the 2032 Notes, and February 15, 2052, in the case of the 2052 Notes, to redeem the applicable Notes, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the redemption date, as more fully described in the Indenture. A copy of the Base Indenture was previously filed, and a copy of the Supplemental Indenture is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this report. The description of the terms of the Base Indenture and the Supplemental Indenture in this Item 1.01 are qualified in their entirety by reference to such exhibits.

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(d)    Exhibits.





4.1    Sixth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of August 8, 2022, between The Williams Companies, Inc. and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. as trustee.
