AEG Retained to Run Process for Mid-Sized Retail Electricity Provider Selling Its Retail Energy Business


AEG Affiliated Energy Group has been retained by a retail electricity provider (Energy Service Company, or “ESCO”), seeking a well capitalized purchaser of its business, customer portfolio and certain related assets. AEG specializes in energy-related mergers and acquisitions, due diligence services, and energy procurement.

“This deal, which is not a distress deal, presents an efficient opportunity to enter or expand into the mass market retail electricity space with an attractive customer portfolio,” said AEG's Chad Price. “Our client has a creditworthy portfolio of both residential and commercial customers, with bad debt historically below one percent. Our client wishes to complete the deal by year's end, after which our client believes long term capital gains tax rates may substantially change in the wrong direction,” noted Price.

AEG Affiliated Energy Group's Team has closed three mergers and acquisition deals specifically in the retail energy space in roughly the past year. AEG's Team expects to close two additional M&A deals as well as a substantially sized debt/financing deal (both specifically involving the retail electricity market) by year's end, with several more deals in the pipeline.

With clients ranging from regional privately held ventures to multinational publicly traded utilities and conglomerates, AEG is the preeminent mergers and acquisitions advisor within deregulated energy markets. AEG also provides financial and advisory services specializing in wholesale and retail energy procurement and advisory services relating to wholesale supply facilities.
