AES Reports 22% Increase In Adjusted Earnings Per Share To $1.24 For Full Year 2012; Announces 2013 Adjusted Earnings Per Share Guidance Of $1.24 To $1.32

Proportional Free Cash Flow is expected to be $750 to $1,050 million, reflecting a decline due to increased environmental capital expenditures at AES Gener and IPL, which will help drive future earnings growth, and lower operating performance at DPL, primarily driven by lower PJM capacity prices and an expected transition to the market. Consolidated Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities is also expected to decline, due to higher working capital requirements in Brazil.
