PRINCETON, NJ; February 22, 2011—

NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NRG) today reported 2010 full year adjusted EBITDA of $2,514 million; 4% lower than a record 2009 EBITDA of $2,618 million while 2010 full year net income totaled $476 million, or $1.84 per diluted common share, compared to $941 million, or $3.44 per diluted common share, for 2009. Reliant Energy contributed $711 million of adjusted EBITDA in 2010 which marked its first full year of ownership as compared to $642 million in 2009 during which NRG owned Reliant Energy for eight months. Wholesale adjusted EBITDA was lower by $173 million in 2010 as compared to 2009, mostly due to lower hedge prices and increased fuel costs in the Northeast and Texas regions, respectively. Partially offsetting the decline were contributions from newly acquired assets including Green Mountain Energy Company, Cottonwood, Northwind Phoenix, and South Trent as well as a full year of operation of the Blythe solar project.

 

Fourth quarter 2010 adjusted EBITDA totaled $444 million, $45 million lower than 2009 fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA of $489 million, while fourth quarter 2010 reflects a net loss of $15 million, or ($0.07) per diluted common share, compared to net income of $33 million, or $0.11 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter last year. Wholesale adjusted EBITDA was $58 million lower at $327 million driven by a decline in energy margins resulting from lower hedge prices and increased fuel costs. Partially offsetting the lower wholesale results were the acquisition of assets and a $13 million increase at Reliant Energy which benefited from an improvement in customer retention and customer payment patterns.

 

“In 2010, NRG was able to post near record results while successfully repositioning the Company to take advantage of the enormous opportunities which we expect to arise in the months and years to come as the electricity and transportation sectors, and society at large, trend toward sustainability,” commented David Crane, NRG President and Chief Executive Officer. “NRG’s acquisition of Green Mountain Energy and South Trent Wind, and the considerable success we have had in advancing our solar development pipeline will over time enhance our financial performance, reduce our environmental exposure, and establish NRG as the premier new energy company for the 21st century.”
