On December 11, 2003, the Board of Directors of Edison International declared a common stock dividend of 20 cents

Edison Mission Energy Developments

On December 11, 2003, Mission Energy Holdings International, Inc. (which is an indirect subsidiary of Edison
International and a direct subsidiary of Edison Mission Energy) received funding under a three-year, $800 million
secured loan from Citigroup, Credit Suisse First Boston, JPMorgan Chase Bank, and Lehman Brothers.  Interest on
this secured loan is based on LIBOR (with a LIBOR floor of 2%) plus 5%.  Net proceeds from this financing, after
payment of transaction expenses, were used to make an equity contribution of $550 million to Edison Mission
Midwest Holdings which, together with cash on hand, was used to repay Edison Mission Midwest Holdings' $781
million indebtedness due December 11, 2003.  The remaining net proceeds from this financing were used to make a
deposit of cash collateral of approximately $67 million under the new letter of credit facility described below
and to repay approximately $160 million of indebtedness of a foreign subsidiary under the Coal and CapEx facility
guaranteed by Edison Mission Energy.  Mission Energy Holdings International owns substantially all of Edison
Mission Energy's international operations through its subsidiary, MEC International B.V.

On December 11, 2003, Edison Mission Energy's subsidiary, Midwest Generation EME, LLC, entered into a three-year,
$100 million letter of credit facility with Citibank, N.A., as Issuing Bank.  Under the terms of this letter of
credit facility, Midwest Generation EME is required to deposit cash in a bank account in order to cash
collateralize any letters of credit that may be outstanding under it.  The bank account is pledged to the Issuing
Bank.  On December 11, 2003, EME canceled $67 million of the commitment under its existing line of credit and was
relieved of its reimbursement obligations with respect to the same amount of letters of credit issued under it.
Concurrently therewith, such letters of credit were issued under Midwest Generation EME's new letter of credit
facility, and Midwest Generation EME made a deposit of cash collateral in

the amount of $67 million for this purpose.  The funds for this deposit were obtained as part of the financing
referred to above.  After giving effect to the commitment cancellation described above, EME's availability under
its line of credit is approximately $145 million, none of which is currently drawn.  Midwest Generation EME owns
100% of Edison Mission Midwest Holdings, which in turn owns 100% of Midwest Generation LLC.
