Project scope and objective

The proposed transaction is a payment facility to purchase accounts receivable for up to USD 120 million ("The Facility" or "The Transaction") that will be used to discount electricity bills issued by four (4) electricity distribution companies in El Salvador: i) Compañía de Alumbrado Eléctrico de San Salvador, SA de CV (CAESS); ii) Empresa Eléctrica de Oriente, S.A. de C.V. (EEO); (iii) AES CLESA S. en C. de C.V. (CLESA); and iv) Distribuidora Eléctrica de Usulután (DEUSEM) (hereinafter "AES El Salvador" or "the Companies"). The Companies are controlled, and majority owned by The AES Corporation. The invoices arise from Executive Decree No. 12 of the Executive Body for the Health Sector of March 21, 2020, for the deferral of payment of electricity consumers' invoices, in order to address the Companies' liquidity and working capital needs. The credit line will be available for up to three months and the deferred invoice payments shall be repaid in 24 monthly installments.
