DUFF & PHELPS: MISSISSIPPI POWER COMPANY $35 MILLION FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS RATED 'A+'

 CHICAGO, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Duff & Phelps Credit Rating Co. has assigned a rating of `A+' (Single-A-Plus) to Mississippi Power Company's $35 million issuance of first mortgage bonds due June 1, 2023.
 A settlement in early 1993 regarding Mississippi Power's performance-based ratemaking plan (PEP) reduces uncertainty created by the legality of the PEP approved by the Mississippi Public Service Commission in 1986. The settlement will not have a significant impact on the company, and no refund was required.
 Mississippi Power's construction expenditures are expected to increase significantly in the next few years from a continuation of customer growth. The highest growth is expected in the commercial sector due to the legalization of casino gambling on the Gulf Coast. Approximately 25 percent of construction expenditures will be for compliance with Clean Air Act requirements. Internal funds should cover approximately three-quarters of the construction budget.
 Mississippi Power is dedicated to controlling costs and strengthening its capital structure. Mississippi Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, provides electric service to over 176,000 customers is southeast Mississippi.
