    FirstEnergy to deactivate coal-fired plant in West Virginia, affecting 190 employees

    FirstEnergy Corp. said Friday it plans to deactivate the coal-fired Pleasants Power Station in Willow Island, West Virgina, affecting about 190 employees. The stock was up 0.6% in morning trade. The company said the decision was made after the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rejected last month FirstEnergy subsidiary Mon Power's plan to buy Pleasants. The company said the Public Service Commission of West Virginia had approved the sale, subject to a number of "significant conditions," which combined with the FERC rejection made the proposed deal "unworkable." FirstEnergy said the plant deactivation is subject to regulatory review for reliability impacts. "We will continue to pursue opportunities to sell the plant while planning for deactivation," said Chief Executive Charles Jones. The stock has gained 7.7% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has climbed 17%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    FirstEnergy shares surge 9% on news of $2.5 billion equity investment

    FirstEnergy Corp. shares surged 8% Monday, after the company said it is getting a $2.5 billion equity investment from a group led by Elliott Management Corp. The investment includes $1.62 billion of mandatory convertible preferred equity and $850 million of common equity. The preferred equity has an initial conversion price of $27.42 per shares and will receive dividends payable on FirstEnergy common stock on an as-converted basis and be mostly non-voting. The common equity was priced at $28.22 a share. The proceeds of the deal will be used to reduce debt, for the pension fund and general corporate purposes. FirstEnergy had said it would issue at least $1.5 billion of common equity through 2019, but no longer needs to do so. The company will form a restructuring working group to work to transform the company into a fully regulated utility. Shares have gained 6.5% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 24%.
