Introductory Note

This Form 8-K is being filed to reflect the effect of certain presentation changes on the previously filed financial statements of the AES Corporation (“AES” or “the Company”) in its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 24, 2012 (the “2011 Form 10-K”). The recast of financial statements presented in this Form 8-K is limited to the items described in Item 8.01 below.

Item 8.01 Other Events

On May 3, 2012, the Company filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Form 10-Q”) for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, which included the following changes in its financial statement presentation:

 

   

Red Oak and Ironwood, two generation businesses in the U.S., were presented as discontinued operations upon meeting that criteria in the quarter;

 

   

A separate consolidated statement of comprehensive income (consecutive to the consolidated statement of operations) was presented upon the adoption of the new accounting guidance on comprehensive income; and

 

   

Tietê, a 2,663 MW hydro generation business in Brazil, was determined to be a reportable segment based upon the quantitative thresholds that require separate presentation. For financial reporting purposes, this increased the number of the Company’s reportable segments from six to seven. See Note 16—Segment and Geographical Information to the Consolidated Financial Statements for further information. The Company completed the restructuring of its operational management and reporting process during the first quarter of 2012.

In order to reflect these financial statement presentation changes, the Company has attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 revised presentations of the following sections of its 2011 Form 10-K:

 

   

Item 1. Business—Overview

 

   

Item 1. Business—Our Organization and Segments

 

   

Item 6. Selected Financial Data

 

   

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

   

Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data (including a revised Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm)

 

   

Schedule I—Condensed Financial Information of Registrant, Schedule II—Valuation and Qualifying Accounts, and Exhibit 12—Calculation of Earnings to Fixed Charges in Item 15. Exhibits and Financial Statement Schedules

All other information in the 2011 Form 10-K remains unchanged. Also filed as Exhibit 23.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K is the Consent of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm.

This Current Report on Form 8-K does not reflect events or developments that occurred after February 24, 2012, and does not modify or update the disclosures in any way other than as described above and set forth in the exhibits hereto. Without limiting the foregoing, this filing does not purport to update the information contained in the 2011 Form 10-K for any information, uncertainties, transactions, risks, events or trends occurring or known to management. More current information is contained in the Company’s Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012 and other filings with the SEC. The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K should be read in conjunction with the 2011 Form 10-K, the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 and other documents filed by the Company with the SEC subsequent to February 25, 2012. Revisions to the 2011 Form 10-K included in this Current Report on Form 8-K as noted above supersede the corresponding portions of the Company’s 2011 Form 10-K.

Attached as Exhibit 101 to this report are the following financial statements from Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K formatted in XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language): (i) the Consolidated Balance Sheets at December 31, 2011 and 2010, (ii) the Consolidated Statements of Operations for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009, (iii) the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income for the years ended
