Credit Rating of Mirant Cut by Moody's

LCG, Oct. 11, 2002--Mirant's exposure to "weak power markets and a continuing lack of investor and counterparty confidence" were cited by rating service Moody's, which downgraded $6.6 billion worth of Mirant debt to a lower sub-investment grade, "Ba3", from a previously issued junk rating.

The merchant energy supplier has $2.7 billion of debt scheduled to expire in 2004. The rating agency found that the company may find it difficult to refinance the debt, although it currently "appears to have adequate liquidity" based on asset sales. Moody's also found that Mirant's cash flow will be reduced by its smaller generation portfolio, which could pose problems if its borrowing costs increase.

Much of the company's ability to shrink its debt load will depend on more asset sales.
