AES Reports Quarterly Loss
Arlington energy giant AES reported a loss in the first quarter after recording a charge of about $638 million from the sale of a Venezuelan subsidiary.
The company said it lost $455 million (67 cents a share) in the three months ending March 31, compared with a year ago profit of $348 million (52 cents).
AES this year sold its stake in a power plant in Caracas under pressure from President Hugo Chavez, who is pushing to nationalize the country's electricity and telecommunication industries.
