      Mr. Arun Banskota reports


      American Electric Power and Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. subsidiary Liberty Utilities Co. have entered into an amendment to the stock purchase agreement dated Oct. 26, 2021, pursuant to which Liberty agreed to purchase Kentucky Power Company and AEP Kentucky Transmission Company Inc. All amounts are shown in United States dollars unless otherwise indicated.

      The amendment provides a path to complete the transaction at a revised purchase price of $2.646-billion, including the assumption of approximately $1.221-billion in debt. The transaction remains subject to approval of the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and is expected to close in January, 2023, if such approval has been received.

      "We look forward to welcoming the employees of Kentucky Power into the Algonquin-Liberty family," said Arun Banskota, president and chief executive officer of Algonquin Power. "We are excited about the Kentucky Power acquisition and adding to our regulated footprint in the United States, as well as leveraging our operational experience for the customers and communities of Kentucky."

      The transaction is aligned with the company's disciplined growth in its regulated services group, given the compelling valuation and opportunities to deliver customer benefits and work with stakeholders on the energy transition in Kentucky. The company plans to utilize its local customer-centric operational model and expertise at Kentucky Power.
