Exhibit 99.01

OGE Energy Corp. reports earnings for 2018 and outlook for 2019
Company achieves record-breaking safety performance
Customer rates lower in 2019 than 2011 following more than $5 billion of investment
Strategic investment drives emissions reductions to among the best in industry
Company improves on already high customer satisfaction and reliability results


OKLAHOMA CITY - OGE Energy Corp. (NYSE: OGE), the parent company of Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company ("OG&E"), and holder of 25.6 percent limited partner interest and 50 percent general partner interest in Enable Midstream Partners LP, today reported earnings of $2.12 per average diluted share in 2018, compared with earnings of $3.10 per average diluted share in 2017. Consolidated earnings per average diluted share for 2017 include a $1.18 per share gain due to the remeasurement of deferred taxes as a result of 2017 tax reform at its unregulated midstream investment.

In 2018, OG&E, a regulated electric utility, reported net income of $328 million and contributed $1.64 per diluted share, compared with $306 million, or $1.53 per diluted share in 2017. OGE Energy Holdings, which is primarily Natural Gas Midstream Operations, received cash distributions from Enable Midstream of approximately $141 million and contributed earnings of $109 million, or $0.54 per diluted share in 2018, compared to earnings of $324 million, or $1.62 per diluted share in 2017. The holding company posted a loss of $12 million or $0.06 per diluted share in 2018, compared to $11 million or $0.05 per diluted share in 2017. Federal tax reform legislation passed in December of 2017 increased Enable Midstream earnings by $245 million or $1.23 per diluted share and decreased earnings at the holding company $11 million or $0.05 per diluted share due to the remeasurement of deferred taxes.

"2018 may well be regarded as the best year in our company's history," said OGE Energy Chairman, President and CEO Sean Trauschke. "I'm most proud of our record-breaking safety performance. It was among the best in the industry. Not only were employees setting safety records, they were busy completing critical, complex, yet very beneficial, projects for our customers. They delivered more renewables, added state-of-the art power generation, significantly reduced our emissions footprint, improved reliability and customer satisfaction, and kept customer rates 31 percent below the national average. These are once-in-a-generation accomplishments made possible by the hard work and dedication of every member of the OGE team."

Fourth Quarter results
For the three months ended December 31, 2018, OGE Energy reported earnings of $0.27 per diluted share compared with $1.48 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2017 which included $1.18 per diluted share resulting from tax reform. Excluding the impact of tax reform, the decrease is primarily due to lower earnings from the utility partially offset by higher earnings from the Enable Midstream business.

Discussion of 2018 results

OG&E reported net income of $328 million in 2018 compared to $306 million in 2017. Gross margin (see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below) was $1.378 billion in 2018, which was approximately $14 million higher than 2017. The increase in gross margin for the year was due in part from higher revenues due to favorable weather and customer growth. Offsetting higher gross margin were higher depreciation and amortization expense as a result of the March 2017 Oklahoma rate order and new assets placed into service.

OGE Energy Holdings (primarily Natural Gas Midstream Operations) contributed earnings to OGE of approximately $109 million for 2018 compared to $324 million for 2017. Excluding tax reform, Enable earnings were higher due to increased volumes primarily in the gathering and processing segment.

2019 Outlook
OG&E is projected to earn $1.55 to $1.62 per average diluted share. The Company projects the earnings contribution from its ownership interest in Enable Midstream to be approximately $0.52 to $0.58 per average diluted share and up to a $0.02 loss per average diluted share at the holding company. Additionally, OGE Energy consolidated earnings guidance for 2019 is $2.05 to $2.20 per average diluted share. The guidance assumes approximately 201 million average diluted shares outstanding and normal weather for the year. More information regarding the Company’s 2019 earnings guidance and the Company’s 2018 financial results is contained in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.




Exhibit 99.01

Conference Call Webcast
OGE Energy will host a live webcast for discussion of the results of 2018 and the 2019 outlook on Thursday, February 21, at 8 a.m. CST. The conference will be available through www.ogeenergy.com. OGE Energy Corp. is the parent company of OG&E, a regulated electric utility with approximately 850,000 customers in Oklahoma and western Arkansas. In addition, OGE holds a 25.6 percent limited partner interest and a 50 percent general partner interest of Enable Midstream Partners LP, created by the merger of OGE's Enogex LLC midstream subsidiary and the pipeline and field services businesses of Houston-based CenterPoint Energy.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
OG&E has included in this release the non-GAAP financial measure Gross Margin. Gross Margin is defined by OG&E as operating revenues less cost of sales. Cost of sales, as reflected on the income statement, includes fuel, purchased power and certain transmission expenses. Gross margin is a non-GAAP financial measure because it excludes depreciation and amortization, and other operation and maintenance expenses. Expenses for fuel and purchased power are recovered through fuel adjustment clauses and as a result changes in these expenses are offset in operating revenues with no impact on net income. OG&E believes gross margin provides a more meaningful basis for evaluating its operations across periods than operating revenues because gross margin excludes the revenue effect of fluctuations in these expenses. Gross margin is used internally to measure performance against budget and in reports for management and the Board of Directors. OG&E's definition of gross margin may be different from similar terms used by other companies. Further, gross margin is not intended to replace operating revenues as determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of operating performance.
