On July 25, 2013, Calpine Corporation (Calpine) reported Q2 2013 financial
results. The Company's Q2 2013 operating revenues were approximately $1.6
billion, up 78.8% YoY. Net loss stood at $70 million, or $0.16 per diluted

EBITDA was down 14.9% YoY to $343 million. Commenting on the results, Jack
Fusco, CEO of Calpine, said, "We remain steadfastly focused on positioning
Calpine to take advantage of the secular shift in the US power generation
industry to clean, efficient, and dispatchable combined-cycle gas turbines."
He continued, "Our second quarter and year-to-date results reflect milder
weather this year, as well as the sale of two contracted power plants late
last year. We expect these headwinds to be offset during the balance of the
year by higher regulatory capacity revenues in PJM, the commencement of
operations at our two new contracted plants in California and the acquisition
of Bosque Energy Center in Texas." The Full Research Report on Calpine
