18:04 EDTEXCExelon expects to record a 1Q13 non cash charge to earnings of $270M
Exelon announed in a regulatory filing that as previously dislosed in 1999, Commonwealth Edison Company deferred $1.2B of gain on the sale of its fossil generating facilities by acquiring like-kind property via a purchase leaseback transaction. The IRS has asserted that the Exelon Corporation purchase leaseback transaction is substantially similar to a leasing transaction known as a sale-in, lease-out transaction SILO. A SILO is a “listed transaction” that the IRS has identified as a potentially abusive tax shelter under guidance issued in 2005. Exelon continues to believe that its like-kind exchange transaction is not the same as or substantially similar to a SILO. Exelon expects to initiate litigation in 2013 to contest the IRS’s disallowance of the like-kind exchange position. As of March 31, 2013, in the event of a fully successful IRS challenge to Exelon’s like-kind exchange position, the potential tax and after-tax interest, exclusive of penalties, that could become currently payable may be as much as $860 million, of which approximately $260 million would be attributable to ComEd and the remainder to Exelon

14:32 EDTEXCPepco says request filed for stay of MPSC order related to merger
In a regulatory filing, Pepco Holdings (POM) disclosed that on July 21, the Maryland Office of People’s Counsel filed a Motion in the Circuit Court for Queen Anne’s County, Maryland, requesting a stay of the MPSC Order and to conduct additional discovery and present additional evidence in light of an alleged conflict of interest on the part of a former MPSC Commissioner. "Pepco Holdings believes the motion is without merit and intends to vigorously oppose it and any other attempts to impede the effectiveness of the MPSC Order or delay the closing of the merger," the company said.
