09:04 EDTSOSouthern Company subsidiary acquires interest in Desert Stateline Facility
Southern Company (SO) subsidiary Southern Power announced the acquisition of a controlling interest in the company's largest solar asset - the 300-megawatt Desert Stateline Facility in California - from First Solar (FSLR), which will retain the remaining interest in the project. This project represents Southern Power's and First Solar's fourth shared acquisition. Southern Power's seventh solar acquisition in California, the Desert Stateline Facility, will be located on 1,685 acres of federally managed public land in San Bernardino County and is expected to consist of approximately 3.2 million of First Solar's thin-film photovoltaic solar modules mounted on fixed-tilt tables. Once operational, the Desert Stateline Facility is expected to be capable of generating enough electricity to help meet the energy needs of nearly 100,000 average homes. First Solar is building and will operate and maintain the Desert Stateline Facility. Construction of the plant began in October 2014 and is expected to be completed in phases. The plant is slated to be fully operational in the third quarter of 2016.

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.
