On September 21, 2011, an ad-hoc group of bondholders (the Plaintiffs) of Dynegy Holdings, LLC (DH) filed a complaint in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, captioned Avenue Investments, L.P. et al v. Dynegy Inc., Dynegy Holdings, LLC, Dynegy Gas Investments, LLC, Clint C. Freeland, Kevin T. Howell and Robert C. Flexon (Index No. 652599/11). Plaintiffs challenge the recent transfer of Dynegy Coal Holdco, LLC by Dynegy Gas Investments, LLC (DGI) to Dynegy Inc. (Dynegy), alleging that the challenged transfer constituted a fraudulent conveyance under New York law or, in the alternative, an unlawful dividend from a subsidiary to its parent. Plaintiffs assert claims of (i) intentional fraudulent conveyance and constructive fraudulent conveyance against Dynegy, DH, and DGI, (ii) unlawful distribution under section 18-607(a) of the Delaware Limited Liability Act against Dynegy and the individual director defendants, (iii) unlawful dividend under sections 160, 173 and 174 of the Delaware Chancery Code against Dynegy and the individual director defendants, (iv) alter ego or corporate veil piercing against DH and DGI, and (v) breach of fiduciary duties against the individual director defendants. Plaintiffs seek a judgment setting aside and annulling the challenged transfer and related transactions or awarding damages. Dynegy, DH, DGI and the individual director defendants believe that Plaintiffs allegations are without merit and intend to vigorously defend the lawsuit.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
