07:01 EDTDYN, DUKDynegy to acquire assets from Duke Energy and Energy Capital Partners
Dynegy (DYN) has signed two separate definitive sets of agreements to acquire the ownership interests in certain Midwest generation assets from Duke Energy (DUK) and EquiPower Resources Corp and Brayton Point Holdings, LLC from ECP. The Duke portfolio includes its retail business and ownership interests in the following plants: Killen, Stuart, Conesville, Miami Fort, Zimmer, Hanging Rock, Washington, Fayette, Lee and Dicks Creek. The ECP assets include these generating facilities: Milford, Lake Road, Dighton, Masspower, Liberty, Elwood, Richland, Stryker, Kincaid and Brayton Point. Upon closing both transactions, Dynegy will own nearly 26,000 megawatts of generating capacity nationally and provide retail electricity to residents and businesses in Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Dynegy has committed financing in place for both the liquidity facilities and the transaction purchase prices and expects to access the capital markets in advance of closing to raise the permanent financing for the transactions. Dynegy Inc. intends to issue approximately $5 billion in new unsecured bonds and $1.25 billion in equity and equity-linked securities. Included in the equity figure is $200 million of Dynegy common stock that will be issued to ECP as part of the transaction consideration at closing. To support the collateral and liquidity needs of the combined enterprise, the Company has secured two incremental corporate-level revolving credit facilities totaling $950 million, bringing total revolver capacity at Dynegy Inc. to $1.425 billion. Additionally, approximately $300 million in working capital and cash collateral postings will be transferred to Dynegy with the acquired portfolios at closing. The purchase price is $2.8 billion for Duke assets and $3.45 billion for ECP assets. The transaction’s financing structure is consistent with the Company’s focus on balance sheet management, value-creating capital allocation, and sufficient liquidity to weather changes in commodity markets. The new assets will be incorporated into Dynegy’s existing first lien structure to support the Company’s hedging and collateral management programs.

07:19 EDTDUKDuke Energy considers potential sale involving International Energy segment
Duke Energy announced it is considering the sale of all or a portion of its International Energy business segment. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Duke Energy International owns power plants in Central and South America. The company's preparations are at a preliminary stage and no binding or non-binding offers have been requested or submitted. No assurance can be given that any process, if ultimately started, will result in a transaction. Duke Energy International facilities include approximately 4,400 megawatts of capacity in power plants in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala and Peru. Two-thirds of the power plant portfolio is hydro and half are located in Brazil. The majority of the power generated by the plants is either contracted or receiving a capacity payment. Duke Energy's 25-percent equity investment in National Methanol Company, a Saudi Arabian regional producer of methanol and methyl tertiary butyl ether, a gasoline additive, will not be included in this potential transaction.
