Edison International Research Report

On October 1, 2013, Edison International reported that its subsidiary,
Southern California Edison (SCE), has criticized Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
(Mitsubishi) for being uncooperative, while also publicizing its demand that
Mitsubishi should reimburse SCE for expenses incurred in responding to the
fundamental defects in the San Onofre replacement steam generators (RSGs) that
were designed and manufactured by Mitsubishi. The Company in its letter to
Mitsubishi - dated September 27, 2013, stated, "Edison spent over $140 million
investigating the cause of excessive tube wear in the RSGs following a tube
leak in one of the Unit 3 RSGs, plugging damaged tubes in all four RSGs, and
attempting to restart Unit 2 after both Units were shut down due to the RSG
defects. Mitsubishi's actions have made it clear that no reasonable level of
documentation will ever be sufficient to support payment in its view. We are
therefore unwilling to engage in yet another time-consuming effort, only to
face continued stonewalling by Mitsubishi." The Full Research Report on Edison
International - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price
targets - is available to download free of charge at:
