15:52 EDTEXC, POMExelon, Pepco Holdings file with FERC for approval of proposed merger
Exelon (EXC) and Pepco Holdings (POM) filed an application for approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the proposed transaction announced by the companies on April 30. The combination of the companies brings together Exelon’s three electric and gas utilities – BGE, ComEd and PECO – and Pepco Holdings’ three electric and gas utilities – Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and Pepco – to create the leading Mid-Atlantic electric and gas utility. The transaction does not raise any adverse competition issues, because PHI owns only a minimal amount of electricity generation. It also satisfies the other criteria used by FERC to evaluate whether a transaction is in the public interest, because it will have no adverse impact on customers’ rates and no impact on regulation by FERC or any state utility commission. Because of the lack of competitive generation overlap, the companies have requested that FERC review the transaction and issue an order within 90 days. In addition to their filing with FERC, Exelon and PHI will make other filings in support of their proposed combination. The companies also will make transaction-related filings with the District of Columbia Public Service Commission, the Delaware Public Service Commission, the Maryland Public Service Commission, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and the Virginia State Corporation Commission. The transaction is also subject to the notification and reporting requirements under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and other customary closing conditions. The transaction requires the approval of the stockholders of PHI. The companies anticipate closing in the second or third quarter of 2015.

08:06 EDTEXCExelon plans to raise dividend 2.5% each year for next three year
"Despite a challenging year for the sector, strong operating performance at both our utilities and our generation business enabled us to deliver strong earnings. We will provide stable growth, sustainable earnings and an attractive dividend through a combination of regulated and contracted investments and return of capital. Consistent with this strategy, we plan to grow our dividend 2.5 percent each year over the next three years," said Exelon President and CEO Christopher Crane. Exelon's board declared a first quarter dividend of 31c per share and approved a revised dividend policy. The approved policy would raise its dividend 2.5% each year for the next three years, beginning with the June 2016 dividend. The board will take formal action to declare the next dividend in the second quarter, the company said.
