Paul Hanrahan, president and CEO of AES, said, “We are extremely pleased with our new partnership with CIC. Their investment in AES provides a source of capital that allows us to take full advantage of our pipeline of investment projects and to pursue select M&A transactions. Additionally, working with CIC will expand our sources of financing in Asia, where the majority of growth in electricity demand is projected to occur.”
