AES Announces Pricing For 20 Million Share Repurchase And Secondary Offering Of 40 Million Shares Of Common Stock By A Subsidiary Of CIC

The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) announced today pricing for the repurchase of 20 million shares of its common stock (the “Repurchase”) from Terrific Investment Corporation (the “Selling Stockholder”), a subsidiary controlled by China Investment Corporation (“CIC”), for approximately $258 million at $12.912 per share. Additionally, the Company’s previously announced secondary public offering of 40 million shares of its common stock (the “Offering”), offered to the public by the Selling Stockholder, priced at $13.45 per share. AES will not receive any of the proceeds from the Offering. The Selling Stockholder has granted to the underwriters an option to purchase up to 6 million additional shares at the public offering price, less the underwriting discount, to cover over-allotments, if any, for a period of 30 days from December 12, 2013. The Offering and the Repurchase are expected to close on or about December 18, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. The closing of the Repurchase is contingent on the closing of the Offering and the satisfaction of certain other customary conditions. The closing of the Offering is not contingent on the closing of the Repurchase.

Barclays, J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley are acting as joint book-running managers of the Offering. BofA Merrill Lynch, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey and UBS Investment Bank are acting as co-managers of the Offering. Barclays acted as financial advisor to the Company’s Board of Directors in connection with the Repurchase.

AES has filed an effective shelf registration statement (including a prospectus) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for the Offering to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that registration statement, the prospectus supplement to which the Offering relates and the other documents incorporated by reference therein, which AES has filed with the SEC for more complete information about AES and the Offering.
