AES Achieves Commercial Operation of 1,240 MW Mong Duong 2 Plant in Vietnam

The AES Corporation announced that it has achieved commercial operation of its 1,240 MW coal-fired Mong Duong 2 power plant in Vietnam six months ahead of schedule. The plant was built under a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) agreement and has a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN), a state-owned utility, as well as 25-year coal supply agreement with Vinacomin. The PPA includes a capacity payment denominated in U.S. Dollars and a fuel pass-through that protects the project from fluctuations in coal prices. AES has a 51% equity interest in the $1.95 billion power plant, while PSC Energy Global Co. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of POSCO Power Corp., and Stable Investment Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Investment Corporation, own 30% and 19%, respectively. Mong Duong 2 was financed with $1.5 billion in non-recourse debt. The plant is the large private sector power project in Vietnam and is the country’s first new private sector power plant to be commissioned in the last ten years.

The AES Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Reports Asset Impairment Expense for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

The AES Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total revenue of $3,984 million compared to $4,262 million a year ago. Interest income was $90 million compared to $63 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $254 million compared to $89 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $142 million or $0.20 per basic and diluted share compared to net loss attributable to the company of $58 million or $0.08 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $437 million compared to $221 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $619 million compared to $399 million a year ago. Free cash flow was $279 million compared to $73 million a year ago. First quarter 2015 proportional free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $265 million, an increase of $136 million from first quarter 2014, primarily driven by working capital improvements at the company's United States and Brazilian utilities and higher collections at Maritza in Bulgaria. Adjusted EPS increased $0.01, as improved operating performance contributed $0.01 and the company's capital allocation decisions contributed $0.03. These positive drivers were largely offset by the $0.02 impact of a stronger US Dollar and a $0.01 impact from a slightly higher adjusted effective tax rate. The company reported asset impairment expense of $8 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015 compared to $12 million a year ago. The company provided earnings guidance for the year 2015. For the year, the company expects adjusted earnings per share of $1.25 to $1.35, net cash provided by operating activities of $1,900 million to $2,700 million, and maintenance capital expenditures of $650 million to $950 million. The company is reaffirming proportional free cash flow guidance of $1 billion to $1.35 billion.
