Edison Mission Energy (EME) filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a Second Modified Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization and Second Amended Disclosure Statement. According to the Disclosure Statement, “The Plan provides for a sale (the ‘NRG Transaction’) of substantially all of EME’s assets, including its direct and indirect equity interests in the Debtor Subsidiaries and the Non-Debtor Subsidiaries (other than any Homer City Debtor and any subsidiary of any Homer City Debtor), to NRG Energy Holdings Inc. (‘Purchaser’ or ‘NRG’), a subsidiary of NRG Energy, Inc. (‘Parent,’ together with Purchaser, the ‘Purchaser Parties’), a Fortune 500 company and the largest competitive power generation company in the U.S., with approximately 47,000 MW of fossil, nuclear, solar, and wind generation capacity. In exchange for this transfer, Purchaser will provide EME’s estate with the Sale Proceeds of $2,635 million (comprised of $2,285 million payable in cash and $350 million payable in Parent Common Stock) to be distributed by the Debtors in accordance with the Plan and assume certain liabilities of the Debtors, including the leveraged leases for Debtor Midwest Generation, LLC’s Powerton and Joliet facilities. The Debtors, the Purchaser Parties, the Committee, the Supporting Noteholders, and the PoJo Parties entered into the Plan Sponsor Agreement, which was approved by the Bankruptcy Court on October 24, 2013, to implement the NRG Transaction pursuant to the Plan.” The Plan further contemplates that, as a general matter, holders of intercompany claims against EME, intercompany claims against subsidiary Debtors, subordinated claims against EME, subordinated claims against subsidiary Debtors and subordinated claims against Homer City Debtors shall receive no distribution on account of their claims.
