E.ON agrees to acquire Innogy from RWE in €43bn deal

E.ON agrees to acquire Innogy from RWE in €43bn deal

Two bankers who have worked on previous Innogy deals put the chances of a rival bid for the German energy company as "very low" to "zero", since RWE has already explored alternative deals with other candidates.

RWE would, in turn, gain an effective participation of 16.67 percent in E.ON.

The big six pair both shrugged off fears that a complex deal between German energy giants RWE and Eon, which emerged over the weekend, would derail their plans to create Britain's second largest energy supplier. As a result, it does not believe the E.ON deal with RWE will affect its own merger. One source said Australia's Macquarie MQG.AX had also been in the race. "The CEOs of the energy companies could get nervous with this deal", the person said, adding that the deal would also potentially open up opportunities to snap up assets that RWE and E.ON have to sell to get regulatory clearance for their deal.

Eon would transfer to RWE most of its renewables business and minority interests now held by Eon's subsidiary PreussenElektra in the RWE-operated nuclear power plants Emsland and Gundremmingen.

The asset swap deal by Germany's top utilities to divide assets of renewable energy provider Innogy could make the sector more competitive, Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries said on Monday, signaling Berlin's support for the agreement. Today it reported 2017 results, saying its adjusted net profit grew by 9% to more than Euro 1.22 billion.
