SECTION 1 – REGISTRANT'S BUSINESS AND OPERATIONS

 

Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On December 11, 2006, Mirant Corporation (the “Corporation”) entered into a definitive purchase and sale agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) which provides for the sale of Mirant Asia-Pacific Limited (“MAPL”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Corporation, to a consortium of The Tokyo Electric Power Company, Incorporated (“TEPCO”) and Marubeni Corporation (“Marubeni”) (the “Transaction”).  The aggregate purchase price for the Transaction is $3.424 billion, subject to a working capital adjustment at the closing.  After the payment of related debt, estimated to be $642 million at the closing, the net proceeds to the Corporation are expected to be $3.152 billion.

Under the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, Mirant Asia-Pacific Ventures, Inc. and Mirant Asia-Pacific Holdings, Inc. (together, “Sellers”), both indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Corporation, agreed to sell all of their ordinary shares in MAPL to Tokyo Crimson Energy Holdings Corporation (“Buyer”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TEPCO and Marubeni.  In connection with the Transaction, the Corporation has agreed to provide a guaranty of the payment obligations of Sellers (the “Seller Guaranty”), and each of TEPCO and Marubeni has agreed to guarantee certain payment obligations of Buyer (the "Buyer Guarantees"). 

The preceding description of the Purchase Agreement, the Seller Guaranty and the Buyer Guarantees does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements.  A copy of the Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.  A copy of the Seller Guaranty is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.  Copies of the Buyer Guarantees made by TEPCO and Marubeni are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

The Transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2007.  The Transaction is conditioned upon, among other things, the consent of the Bermuda Monetary Authority under the Exchange Control Act 1972 of Bermuda (as amended) (and regulations made thereunder) and the Sual plant being operational.
