Form 8-K for EXELON CORP

Other Events


Item 8.01. Other Events

In June 2000, UII, LLC (formerly Unicom Investments, Inc.) (UII), a wholly owned subsidiary of Exelon Corporation (Exelon), entered into a transaction pursuant to which UII invested in a coal-fired generating station lease (Headlease) with the City of San Antonio, Texas, by and through the City Public Service Board of San Antonio, Texas (CPS). The generating station was leased back to CPS as part of the transaction (Lease). In connection with this transaction, CPS entered into certain credit support arrangements with third parties to support its obligations to UII under the Lease. The credit rating of one of these third parties was downgraded in 2013, triggering a requirement by CPS to either replace the credit support provider or post additional collateral. As a result of such requirement, CPS and UII entered into discussions related to the termination of the Headlease and the Lease.

On February 26, 2014, UII and CPS finalized an agreement to terminate the Headlease, the Lease, and other related agreements prior to their expiration dates (Termination Agreement). The Termination Agreement provides for UII to receive a net early termination amount of $335 million from CPS, which UII believes is a sufficient amount such that it is in Exelon's best interest to terminate the Headlease and Lease, due in part to certain economic uncertainties with respect to the end of Lease term options, including the likelihood of UII incurring significant capital expenditures and increased operational risk. The Lease provides CPS with a fixed purchase option at the end of the Lease term. If CPS does not exercise the fixed purchase option, UII has the ability to require CPS to return the leasehold interest to UII allowing UII to operate the generating station and market or use the station's output for the remaining term of the Headlease. Alternatively, UII can require CPS to arrange for a third-party to bid on a service contract for a period following the Lease term under which the third-party would purchase the station's output. At the end of the term of the service contract UII would operate the station and market or use the station's output for the remaining term of the Headlease.

The termination of the Headlease and the Lease will result in a net loss at UII, which is not material, and a tax payment of approximately $285 million by Exelon and its subsidiaries in 2014, including approximately $150 million by Commonwealth Edison Company.
