Southern Company (SO) and AGL Resources (GAS) announced that the boards of directors of both companies have approved a definitive merger agreement to create America's leading U.S. electric and gas utility company. Pursuant to the agreement, AGL Resources will become a new wholly owned subsidiary of Southern Company in a transaction with an enterprise value of approximately $12B, including a total equity value of approximately $8B. For Southern Company, this transaction is anticipated to be accretive to earnings per share in the first full year following the close of the transaction, accelerate expected long-term EPS growth to 4%-5%, preserve its strong financial profile and further support investment in the company's diversified energy platform, and enhance the ability to increase the growth rate of its dividend, subject to board of directors' approval. Under the terms of the agreement, AGL Resources' shareholders will be entitled to receive $66 in cash for each share of AGL Resources common stock. This represents a premium of 36.3% to the volume-weighted average stock price of AGL Resources over the last 20 trading days ended Aug. 21, 2015. After closing, AGL Resources will continue to maintain its own management team and board of directors, and, as is the case with Southern Company's other operating subsidiaries, AGL Resources will continue to maintain its own corporate headquarters, which for AGL Resources is in Atlanta. Customers will continue to be served by their current gas and electric utility companies. Until the transaction has received all necessary approvals and has closed, the companies will continue to operate as separate entities. Completion of the transaction is conditioned upon, among other things, the approval of the AGL Resources shareholders and certain state utility and other regulatory commissions. The transaction is also subject to the notification and clearance and reporting requirements under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976. The companies expect to complete the transaction in the second half of 2016.

10:01 EDTDUKDuke Energy seeks proposals for solar in South Carolina
Duke Energy issued a request for proposals for about 53 megawatts of utility-scale solar capacity to be in-service in its South Carolina service areas by the end of 2016. In a separate RFP, the company seeks up to 5 megawatts of solar capacity for its Shared Solar Program, an innovative offer that will allow multiple customers to subscribe to the output of a specific solar facility and share in the economic benefits of the power produced. Projects should be greater than 250 kilowatts and no more than 1 megawatt of capacity. The company anticipates the Shared Solar Program will be particularly attractive to customers who want to receive the benefits of renewable energy but may not be able to install solar on their premises, such as renters or those who live in multi-family housing.
