E.ON to buy RWE subsidiary Innogy

RWE To Sell 77% Stake In Innogy To E.ON For 17% Stake In E.ON (ALLISS)

RWE goes green in mega deal to sell Innogy to E.ON

German energy company RWE has reached a preliminary agreement on the sale of its controlling stake in Innogy to German utility E.On, RWE announced on Sunday.

The in-principle agreement involving huge asset swaps is part of a major restructuring of Germany's energy market as Europe's powerhouse switches from conventional to renewable power.

Morgan Stanley analysts said the proposed deal would allow E.ON to expand its networks and retail businesses, with potential for "material" cost cuts, while RWE would gain a long-term renewables strategy and a stable dividend from E.ON.

Eon would acquire RWE's 76.8% stake in Innogy, and some other interests, with RWE taking a significant minority stake, 16.67%, in Eon's business.

Should the prospective deal go ahead - the acquisition still needs to be approved by European Union regulators and the companies' respective boards - it would represent a significant shift for both organisations and the German energy sector more generally.

The planned large-scale asset swap went down well with shareholders.
