- AES Tiete is a power generating company in Brasil that owns and operates hydroelectric dams.
- AES Tiete sells most of its power to AES Eletropaulo under a long-term contract that ends in 2015.
- The price that AES Eletropaulo pays AES Tiete for its electricity is well above market rates.
- AES Tiete is unlikely to secure a similar rate for its electricity starting in 2016.
- The lower cash flows that will ensue due to the lower rates are likely to force the company to cut its dividend.
