Completata l’incorporazione di innogy in E.ON

03/06/2020 - E.ON: conclusa l’acquisizione di innogy da parte di E.ON, in seguito all’iscrizione nel Registro delle Imprese dell'operazione di squeeze-out (conferimento delle azioni residuali).

“Siamo molto lieti di aver completato oggi l'ultimo grande passo nella completa acquisizione e integrazione di innogy. Nei mesi a venire, ci concentreremo sull'integrazione di tutte le attività di innogy nel nostro Gruppo. Durante tutto questo processo, faremo in modo che gli interessi dei nostri clienti continuino ad avere sempre la priorità”, ha dichiarato Johannes Teyssen, CEO di E.ON.

Teyssen ha sottolineato che da oggi in poi E.ON realizzerà la piena integrazione di innogy con la stessa rapidità che ha caratterizzato tutte le fasi precedenti della transazione. “Finora abbiamo sempre rispettato le tempistiche programmate per l'integrazione di innogy, e continueremo a farlo", ha aggiunto.

La nuova struttura e il nuovo management di E.ON sono già pronti. "Ora possiamo e vogliamo procedere ancora più rapidamente con l'implementazione operativa dell'integrazione. I rappresentanti dei dipendenti saranno naturalmente coinvolti direttamente" ha concluso Teyssen.

La nuova E.ON

In seguito all’acquisizione di innogy, E.ON è uno dei maggiori operatori europei nell’ambito delle reti energetiche e delle infrastrutture per l'energia e un fornitore di soluzioni innovative per circa 50 milioni di clienti, attivo in 15 paesi con circa 75.000 dipendenti. L'azienda intende collaborare con i propri clienti per promuovere la transizione energetica in Europa.

Comunicato in inglese

• Entry into Commercial Register carried out • Cash compensation to be paid shortly • innogy’s full integration into E.ON Group on schedule

The merger squeeze-out was today entered into the Commercial Register – this concludes the final step in E.ON’s takeover of innogy. “We’re very pleased that today we completed the final major step in the full takeover and integration of innogy. In the months ahead, we’ll focus on the practical integration of all former innogy operations into our Group. Throughout this process, we’ll ensure that our customers’ interests will continue to always have priority,” E.ON CEO Johannes Teyssen said. The specified cash compensation will be paid in the coming days. Pursuant to the requirements of stock corporation law, a court-appointed auditor confirmed that the specified cash compensation of €42.82 per share is appropriate. innogy SE shares are likely to be delisted this week. Any trading that takes place on the stock exchange until this time is trading only in the cash compensation claims of minority shareholders. When the transfer resolution takes effect, innogy shares still shown in minority shareholders’ equity accounts will only represent the before mentioned cash compensation claims.

Together with RWE, in March 2018 E.ON announced its intention to acquire RWE’s innogy shares as part of a larger transaction. In mid-September 2019 the European Commission gave its green light to the transaction. In March 2020 the innogy General Meeting passed a resolution to transfer minority shareholders’ remaining shares to E.ON in exchange for appropriate cash compensation as part of a merger squeeze-out. The final steps of the transaction with RWE, i.e. the transfer of the innogy renewables business, gas storage and the participation in KELAG to RWE is now intended to be implemented at the end of June 2020.

Teyssen: “Thanks to our careful preparation, all of the transaction’s major steps have been on schedule. We achieved our goal of going from announcement to the final legal step in just over two years.

Considering the size of the transaction—Germany’s corporate history has seen nothing comparable in recent decades—it’s something to be proud of. All the more reason for me to thank the E.ON and innogy colleagues involved for making this moment in both companies’ history possible.”

Teyssen emphasized that from today forward E.ON will carry out the full integration of innogy as rapidly as all previous phases of the transaction. “So far we’ve always stayed on schedule and will continue to do so, in integrating innogy”, he added, the company can draw on its extensive preparations. The new E.ON’s structure and leadership team are already set. Teyssen: “We now can and will move forward even more swiftly with the operational implementation of the integration. Employee representatives will of course be closely involved.”

The new E.ON

The new E.ON will be one of Europe’s largest operators of energy networks and energy-related infrastructure and a provider of innovative customer solutions for about 50 million customers. Going forward, E.ON will have around 75,000 employees and be active in 15 countries. The company intends to partner with its customers to propel the energy transition in Europe.
