North Carolina Approves CP&L-Florida Progress

LCG, Aug. 23, 2000--The North Carolina Utilities Commission yesterday approved CP&L Energy Corp.s pending acquisition of Florida Progress Corp. leaving only the Securities and Exchange Commission approval needed to complete the transaction.

The commission extracted some concessions from CP&L before giving the merger the green light. As part of the approval order, CP&L will provide a total of $29.5 million in rate reductions for its North Carolina customers. The reductions include rate cuts totaling $19.5 million over years 2002 to 2005 and a one-time reduction of $10 million in fuel costs to settle the fuel case for this year.

The commission also included a series of conditions designed to protect North Carolina customers from any adverse effects of combination of the two companies.

"The combination of CP&L and Florida Progress will benefit both customers and shareholders," predicted CP&L chief executive William Cavanaugh.

The companies expect to close the deal this fall.
