Bear Sterns to Acquire Interests in AEP Plants

LCG, Mar. 10, 2004--An agreement has been reached by American Electric Power and indirect subsidiaries of The Bear Stearns Companies Inc. that partial interests in four independent power plants will be sold by AEP for $156 million overall.

According to AEP's chairman, president and chief executive officer, Michael G. Morris, the plants are not part of the company's "core utilities" and do not represent an important part of its geographic strategy. Before the deal can be completed, it will require approval from partners and lenders as well as regulatory review.

The plants, all of which are gas-fired combined-cycle cogeneration facilities, include the 68-megawatt Brush II in Brush, Colo.; Thermo, a 272-megawatt plant in Ft. Lupton, Colo; Mulberry, a 120-megawatt plant in Bartow, Fla; and Orange, a 103-megawatt plant in Bartlow, Fla. AEP came to retain partial interests of between 40 and 50 per cent in each of the plants, which are qualifying facilities, when it merged with Central and South West Corp.
