Item 2.06. Material Impairments.

In March 2018, Exelon Generation Company, LLC (Generation) notified independent system operator New England Inc. (ISO-NE) of its plans to early retire, among other assets, the Mystic Generating Station's Units 8 and 9 (Mystic Generating Station assets) absent regulatory reforms to properly value reliability and regional fuel security.

Thereafter, ISO-NE identified Mystic 8 and 9 as being needed to ensure fuel security for the region and entered into a cost of service agreement with these two units for the period between June 1, 2022 - May 31, 2024. The agreement was approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in December 2018.

On June 12, 2020, Generation filed a complaint with FERC against ISO-NE stating that ISO-NE failed to follow its tariff with respect to its evaluation of Mystic Generating Station assets for transmission security for the 2024 to 2025 Capacity Commitment Period (FCA 15) and that the modifications ISO-NE made to its unfiled planning procedures to avoid retaining the Mystic Generating Station assets should have been filed with FERC for approval. On August 17, 2020, FERC issued an order denying the complaint.

As a result, on August 20, 2020, Exelon Corporation (Exelon) determined that Generation will permanently cease generation operations at Mystic Generating Station assets on or about May 31, 2024.

Generation will perform an impairment assessment and Exelon and Generation expect to record a non-cash impairment charge for the difference between the book value and the fair value of the New England asset group in their financial results for the third quarter of 2020. The impairment charge is currently expected to be in the range of $350 million to $550 million on a pre-tax basis, which will be excluded from Exelon's and Generation's adjusted (non-GAAP) operating earnings.

Estimated one-time charges and estimated cash expenditures related to the one-time charges as a result of the decision to retire the Mystic Generating Station assets, are not expected to be material. In addition, there will be annual financial impacts stemming from shortening the expected economic useful life of the Mystic Generating Station assets primarily related to accelerated depreciation of plant assets. The estimated amount of expected incremental non-cash pre-tax expense as a result of the early retirement decision, after recognition of the impairment referenced above, is $75 million to $125 million annually for a 12-month period, through the retirement of the Mystic Generating Station assets in 2024, which will also be excluded from Exelon's and Generation's adjusted (non-GAAP) operating earnings.
