    CHICAGO, Sept. 14 /CNW/-- Invenergy Development Company LLC ("Invenergy")
announced the successful closing and syndication of project financing for its
St. Clair, Ontario electricity generation project.  The C$479 million
financing was conducted without an underwriting; rather, Invenergy assembled a
group of financial institutions to participate in the financing, all of which
provided their funding at the financial close.  The lenders are Allied Irish
Bank, Bayern LB, GE, Helaba, Lloyds TSB, Mizuho, Natixis, Nord LB, Royal Bank
of Canada, Royal Bank of Scotland, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp. and Union
Bank of California.
    Royal Bank of Canada acted as financial advisor and will be the
administrative agent for the loan facilities.  Helaba and Natixis were named
co-documentation agents, and Bayern LB and GE were named co-syndication
agents.  James Murphy, Invenergy's Chief Financial Officer, stated "We are
very pleased to complete this unique financing.  In spite of difficult market
conditions, we were able to successfully oversubscribe this facility and
complete the transaction with competitive terms. Our self-syndication resulted
in significant savings for the Project."
    The St. Clair Project is a 584 MW combined cycle natural gas-fired power
plant located in St. Clair -- near Sarnia, Ontario.  The project has a 20-year
Clean Energy Supply Contract with the Ontario Power Authority.  The Project's
development was initiated by Invenergy in response to the Ontario Minister of
Energy's 2004 request for 2,500 MW of new, clean electricity generating
capacity in Ontario.
