NRG, GenOn complete merger

NRG Energy Inc. and GenOn Energy Inc. completed their merger effective today, creating the largest competitive power generator in the U.S.

NRG now has a diverse fleet of almost 100 generation assets with a total capacity of about 47,000 MW concentrated in three domestic regions: East, Gulf Coast and West.

In connection with the consummation of the merger, GenOn Energy stockholders will receive a fixed ratio of 0.1216 shares of NRG common stock for each share of GenOn common stock, except that cash will be paid in lieu of fractional shares.

GenOn common stock will cease being traded prior to the market opening December 17, and will no longer be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

With the merger completed, NRG is now dual headquartered, with financial and commercial headquarters in Princeton and operational headquarters in Houston. The combined fleet of conventional and renewable power generation facilities produced more than 104 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity in 2011 and can supply nearly 40 million homes.
