AGL Resources to Change NYSE Ticker Symbol to AGL

    ATLANTA, Feb. 5 /CNW/ -- AGL Resources Inc. announced today it will
change the ticker symbol for its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange
to "AGL" from "ATG."  The change will become effective at the start of trading
on Monday, Feb. 9, 2009.

    "When our holding company was formed in 1996, the ticker symbol 'AGL' was
not available.  Now that it has become available, it makes sense for us to
align our ticker symbol more closely with our corporate name," said John W.
Somerhalder II, chairman, president and chief executive officer of AGL
