AES Announces Pricing Of $750 Million Of Senior Notes In Public Offering

The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) announced that it has priced $750 million aggregate principal amount of 5.500% senior notes due 2024 (the “Notes”). AES intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes, as well as, if necessary, other available funds, to fund concurrent tender offers to purchase for cash certain series of AES’s outstanding senior notes and to pay certain related fees and expenses. If any net proceeds from the offering remain after completion of the tender offers, AES intends to use such proceeds to retire certain outstanding indebtedness and for general corporate purposes. The closing of the offering of the Notes is expected to occur, subject to certain customary conditions, on March 7, 2014.

An effective shelf registration statement related to the Notes has previously been filed by AES with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
