Item 8.01. Other Events

On May 19, 2017, Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana – South
(Vectren), announced that, along with the Indiana Office of the
Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC) and a coalition of industrial
customers, a settlement had been reached regarding Vectrens
seven-year improvement plan to enhance reliability and modernize
its electric infrastructure, which was filed in February of 2017.
The settlement agreement was filed yesterday with the Indiana
Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) and completes a
collaborative effort among Vectren, the industrial group and the
OUCC. The IURC is expected to rule on the settlement no later
than September. The original plan featured more than 800 projects
and was estimated to cost $514 million over the plans seven-year
period. The settlement agreement reduces the plan spend to $446
million. The majority of the $68 million reduction relates to the
removal of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI or digital
meters) from this plan. However, deferral of the costs for AMI
was agreed upon in the settlement whereby the company can move
forward with deployment in the near-term. In removing it from the
plan, the request for cost recovery for the project will not
occur until the next base rate review proceeding, which will
begin in 2023. The press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
