Dynegy Inc. Research Report

Dynegy announced its acquisition of five coal-fired power plants from Ameren,
which will double its generation capacity in the state of Illinois, for zero
cash this week. The unit will come with $825 million of non-recourse debt and
includes Ameren's retail and marketing assets in the state. Meanwhile, Ameren
will spend at least $133 million to buy back three natural gas-fueled plants
from the subsidiary it's selling. Ameren's management says the deal will
reduce its business risk and improve the predictability of its future earnings
and cash flows. Meanwhile, Dynegy released its Q4 and full year 2012 results

operations of $1.13 per share and revenue of $312 million for the quarter. The

Great Plains Energy Incorporated Research Report

Great Plains Energy recently posted its Q4 2012 results, where its revenue and
earnings per share both beat analyst expectations driven by a 5-cent decrease
in interest expense from recently matured senior notes and lower interest
rates on the refinanced debt underlying the Equity Units. Revenue came in at
$480.4 million, down from $486.3 million from the same quarter in 2011, while
earnings came in at 3 cents per share, up from 1 cent per share year over
year. In comparison, analysts polled by S&P Capital IQ expected revenue of
$477 million and earnings per share of 2 cents. For the full year 2012,
earnings came in at $198.3 million or $1.35 per share, up from $172.8 million
or $1.25 per share posted in 2011, attributed to new retail rates that became
effective in 2011 and favorable weather. The Full Research Report on Great
