LCG, Oct. 18, 2000--Reliant Energy Inc. said yesterday that its wholly owned subsidiary Reliant Resources Inc. has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the initial public offering of Reliant Resources common stock.

In the filing, Reliant said it expects to realize up to $1.3 billion in the public offering. The net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes including the development of generating facilities, acquisitions and the repayment or refinancing of indebtedness, the company said.
