FERC approves BostonGen sale

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - EBG Holdings, the parent of Boston Generating, LLC BostonGen announced that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission FERC issued an order recently approving the sale of the CompanyÂ’s assets to Constellation Energy for approximately $1.1 billion.

All necessary regulatory approvals required for completion of the transaction have been issued and the closing of the sale has now occurred.

Under terms of the agreement, Constellation acquired BostonGenÂ’s five power plants located in the Boston area: four natural gas fired plants, including Mystic 8 and 9 1,580 megawatts, Fore River 787 megawatts, Mystic 7 574 megawatts and a fuel oil plant, Mystic Jet 9 megawatts.

As part of its Chapter 11 sale process previously announced on August 18, 2010, BostonGen entered into an asset purchase agreement with "stalking horse" bidder Constellation for the 2,950 MW fleet, the third largest power generating portfolio in the New England region. On November 24, 2010 Judge Shelley C. Chapman of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York approved the sale of the CompanyÂ’s assets under Section 363 of the United States Bankruptcy code to Constellation.

“The completion of the sale of the assets to Constellation brings us one step closer to closure in the BostonGen bankruptcy proceedings,” Said Mark Sudbey, Chief Executive Officer of US Power Generating Company, EBG Holdings’ parent company.
