Financial Management
Liability Management

The reduction, if not elimination, of NPC’s financial obligations primarily hinges on the success of the privatization of NPC assets, including the efficient collection of the proceeds, and PSALM’s effective implementation of its liability management program. The completion of the privatization program will also help PSALM in avoiding operational losses from expensive power plants and IPP contracts.
