FACTUAL BACKGROUND

A. Con Edison NY's Energ Busines

19. At the time of the RoCa3 Investment, Con Edison NY was a widely-held and

publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. It owned 100% of Consolidated

Edison Development, Inc. ("Con Edson Development"), which in turn owned 100% of

Consolidated Edson Leasing, Inc. ("Con Edson Leasing"). Con Edison NY has since become a

wholly owned subsidiar of Consolidated Edison, Inc. ("CEI"), which also owns Con Edison

Development as welI. Like Con Edson NY before it, CEI is widely-held and publicly-trade on

the New York Stock Exchange.

20. Con Edison NY is one of the nation's oldest and largest investor-owned energy

companies with approximately $21 billon in assets. It is a regulated public utility that was

incorporated in 1884 and currntly delivers electric service to almost all of New York City and

most of Westchester County - a service ara having a population of approximately 9 millon.

Con Edison NY also supplies gas in pars of New York City and Westchester County. Con

Edison NY also owns and operates the largest distrct stear system in the world, providing

steam service in most of Manhattn..

21. Pror to the 1990s, Con Edson NY, as was the case with most electrc utilties,

offered electric service in a "bundled" format. In other words. Con Edison NY owned and

operated the generation plants that produced electrcity as well as the trnsmission and

distribution systems that delivered the electrcity to its customers. Con Edison NY owned gas-

fired. oi I-fire, and nuclear-powered plants with a total electrc-generating capacity of 8,300

megawatts. As a regulated public utilty. all of Con Edison NY's operations were subject to

regulation by the New York Public Service Commission ("PSC").
