AEP Emphasizes Core Utility Operations

LCG, Jan. 24, 2002--American Electric Power Co. (AEP) announced that following a fourth-quarter loss of $837 million, it will sell domestic and overseas non-utility assets, many of which have recently fallen in value, and reduce its workforce by 1,300, or about 5%.

The company is reducing its dividend to 35 cents a share from 60 cents in order to improve liquidity and reduce borrowing costs. "The once flourishing wholesale market is no longer the promising business we contemplated three years ago," said AEP chairman, chief executive and president, E. Linn Draper Jr. The company, which has most of its power generation assets in the Midwest, has already reduced its trading operations, like many other energy companies hurt by a loss of investor confidence.

Draper noted that the company would be operating according to the "traditional model" of the regulated utility. While AEP has written off $1 billion in asset value this quarter in recognition of poor market conditions, it plans to sell subsidiaries such as AEP Coal at the best prices possible, without rushing to turn them into cash.
