Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2009 excludes $19.3 million of pre-tax interest expense related to a debt tender offer and net unrealized pre-tax losses of $18.3 million on economic hedges that do not qualify for hedge accounting. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2008 excludes $4.0 million of unrealized pre-tax losses on economic hedges.

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure. For information on the calculation of adjusted net income for all periods, see the attached reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

“Adjusted earnings grew in the third quarter due to improved results in our regulated delivery and transmission business,” said Paul J. Evanson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allegheny Energy. “However, the weak economy and low power prices reduced earnings in our generation business. We recently completed several financings which improved our liquidity and financial flexibility, and we continue to focus on cost control. We believe Allegheny is well-positioned to benefit from an economic recovery.”

The following information was filed by Allegheny Energy, Inc (AYE) on Thursday, October 29, 2009 as an 8K 2.02 statement, which is an earnings press release pertaining to results of operations and financial condition.
