NRG Lures Shareholders with Renewable IPO

A new unit that will be able to operate renewable and conventional power assets and pay dividends to shareholders is attempting to raise $400 million in an initial share sale as it launches into being.

The new unit, NRG Yield Inc.—of NRG Energy Inc. filed its registration statement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission on June sixth for an initial public offering (IPO).
