13:12 EDTDUKDuke Energy initiates process to exit Midwest commercial generation business
Duke Energy has initiated a strategic process to exit its Midwest commercial generation business, which includes ownership interests in 13 power plants. The Midwest generation business includes 13 power plants with a total capacity of approximately 6,600 megawatts. These plants are owned or partially owned by Duke Energy Ohio and reported in the company's Commercial Businesses unit. Redeployment of any Midwest generation sale proceeds is expected to be accretive. As a result of this announcement, the company will take an estimated pre-tax impairment charge of $1B to $2B in the first quarter of 2014. This impairment will be treated as a special item and excluded from Duke Energy's adjusted diluted earnings per share results.
