Tenaska Reacquires Sole Ownership of Tenaska Marketing Ventures



OMAHA, Nebraska – Tenaska, Inc. (Tenaska) today announced that its repurchase of the interests in Tenaska Marketing Ventures, Tenaska Gas Storage and Tenaska Marketing Canada (collectively TMV) formerly owned by affiliates of American International Group, Inc. (AIG) has been completed.

In 2007, AIG affiliates acquired a 50 percent interest in TMV, previously wholly owned by Tenaska. Tenaska serves as the managing partner of TMV, and Tenaska’s strong corporate balance sheet, plus a five-year $1 billion revolving line of credit supports TMV’s operations.

Affiliates of AIG agreed in November 2008 to sell their interest in TMV back to Tenaska. Completion of the repurchase transaction results in Tenaska’s employee-owners again owning 100 percent of TMV. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“The combination of the outstanding team operating TMV and the strength of Tenaska’s reputation and balance sheet means TMV is positioned to continue its record of growth and success,” said Tenaska Chief Financial Officer Jerry Crouse.
