E.ON successfully raises further €1.5 billion
- First bond issuance after the takeover of innogy well received by high investor demand
Today, E.ON issued two further bonds of €750 million each. The high level of demand enabled E.ON to secure favorable interest terms across both maturities. Following the successful inaugural Green Bond issuance in August 2019, E.ON was again able to issue a bond with a zero coupon:
- €750 million bond maturing in October 2022 with coupon of 0 percent
- €750 million bond maturing in October 2026 with coupon of 0.25 percent
The transaction was executed by an international bank consortium that supported E.ON’s acquisition financing. Barclays, MUFG, Morgan Stanley, and UniCredit served as active bookrunners.
Marc Spieker, E.ON’s CFO, emphasizes: “The high investor demand for this first bond placement following the innogy takeover is evidence of the positive reception of the new E.ON by our investors.”
