AES Announces Pricing Of $775 Million Of Floating Rate Notes In Public Offering

Stocks in this article: AES

The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) announced that it has priced $775 million aggregate principal amount of floating rate notes due 2019 (the “Notes”). The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 3.0% above three-month LIBOR, reset quarterly. AES intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to repay substantially all of the outstanding term loans under its senior secured term loan facility, after which AES expects approximately $30 million would remain outstanding. The remaining terms loans outstanding under the senior secured term loan facility are expected to be repaid following the receipt of proceeds from a previously announced sale of assets in Cameroon. The closing of the offering of the Notes is expected to occur, subject to certain customary conditions, on May 20, 2014 (T + 3).

In the Preliminary Prospectus Supplement, dated May 15, 2014, AES disclosed that, following the pricing of this offering, it intended to seek amendments to its senior secured term loan facility. AES believes that this offering will result in net proceeds sufficient to repay substantially all of the senior secured term loan facility and, as such, no longer intends to seek any amendments to such facility following the pricing of this offering.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor does it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. An effective shelf registration statement related to the Notes has previously been filed by AES with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The offering and sale of the Notes are being made only by means of a prospectus supplement dated May 15, 2014 and an accompanying base prospectus dated February 27, 2013 related to the offering. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus and the preliminary prospectus supplement in that registration statement and other documents the issuer has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the issuer and this offering. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
