Mirant's Debt Rating Lowered to Junk

LCG, October 22, 2002-In line with the state of numerous energy companies lately, Mirant Corporation saw its debt rating lowered to junk status late yesterday by Standard & Poor's Ratings Services.

Mirant, which has outstanding debt of $10.7 billion, went from a unsecured debt rating of BB to BBB-minus.

On October 10, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the company's debt to near junk, at which point Mirant spokespeople made a point of the company's devotion to "strengthen liquidity and reduce trading and marketing activity," as was stated by company chief financial officer Ray Hill.

Mirant owns or controls 17,000 megawatts worth of electric capacity in the United States.
