M2 EQUITYBITES-May 12, 2017-US Utility Operators AEP, Dynegy Close Ownership Transfer for Co-Owned Plants


12 May 2017 - US-based electric utility operator American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) has completed the sale of AEP's 330mw share of the Zimmer Plant to US-based electric company Dynegy and the purchase of Dynegy's 312mw share of Conesville Plant, the company said.

The transaction has no material impact on AEP earnings.

AEP already operates Conesville Plant and Dynegy operates Zimmer Plant so there will be no employment impact from the transaction.

Dayton Power and Light owns the remaining 129mw of Conesville Unit 4.

AEP's other competitive generation assets in Ohio include 595mw of Cardinal Plant, 603mw of Stuart Plant and the 48mw Racine Plant. Stuart Plant is expected to be retired by 1 June 2018.
