Vistra and Dynegy to Combine?

Vistra Energy may be in talks to take over Dynegy, another Texas-based generator. On 5/18/17, SeekingAlpha reported that “Vistra Energy (NYSE:VST) has made a takeover approach to rival Texas-based power producer Dynegy (NYSE:DYN), WSJ reports. Vistra operates Luminant, which produces and sells power on the open market, and retail electricity provider TXU Energy, which serves ~1.7M Texas residential and business customers; adding DYN’s 50 power stations in 12 states would broaden VST’s footprint to the Midwest and other parts of the U.S. Dynegy has a hefty debt load of ~$9B, which has become a burden, as the company has lost money in recent quarters amid low wholesale power prices; VST had ~$4.5B in debt at the end of Q1.”
