Talen Energy sells gas-fired power plant in Pennsylvania

gas plant ELP

Talen Energy Corp. completed on Monday the sale of Talen Ironwood Holdings, which through its units owns and operates the Ironwood combined-cycle, natural gas-fired power plant in Lebanon County, Pa., to a unit of TransCanada Corp.

The total purchase price, after estimated adjustments for net working capital, was $657 million. In connection with the transaction, Talen Energy repaid about $41 million in debt, plus a customary pre-payment premium, associated with the power plant. Talen Energy expects to use transaction proceeds to retire pre-payable and maturing debt, and for other general corporate purposes.

Sale of the 704 MW plant supports mitigation measures required by a December 2014 Federal Energy Regulatory Commission order that approved the transactions that formed Talen Energy. Other previously announced mitigation sales in specified regions of the PJM Interconnection are expected to close in the first quarter of 2016, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Credit Suisse served as financial advisor to Talen Energy for the Ironwood transaction. Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as transaction counsel.
