AES Announces Tender Offers For Up To A Total Of $300 Million Of Its 7.75% Senior Notes Due 2015, 9.75% Senior Notes Due 2016 And 8.00% Senior Notes Due 2017

The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) announced today the commencement of tender offers to purchase (each offer a “Tender Offer” and collectively, the “Tender Offers”) for cash, subject to certain terms and conditions, up to a total of $300 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 7.75% senior notes due 2015 (the “2015 Notes”), 9.75% senior notes due 2016 (the “2016 Notes”), and 8.00% senior notes due 2017 (the “2017 Notes” and, together with the 2015 Notes and the 2016 Notes, the “Securities”).

The Tender Offers are scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 14, 2014 (the “Expiration Date”), unless extended or earlier terminated by AES. The Tender Offers are being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase dated February 14, 2014 and a related Letter of Transmittal dated February 14, 2014 (together, the “Tender Offer Materials”), which set forth a more detailed description of the Tender Offers. Holders of the Securities are urged to carefully read the Tender Offer Materials before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offers.

The principal amount of the Securities that may be purchased pursuant to the Tender Offers will not exceed $300,000,000 (the “Tender Cap Amount”), subject to the acceptance priority level set forth in the table below (the “Acceptance Priority Level”). As discussed in more detail in the Tender Offer Materials, AES reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase or decrease the Tender Cap Amount, at any time, subject to compliance with applicable law.
