The Executive Board of innogy SE acknowledges that E.ON Verwaltungs SE (bidder) has published the offer document concerning its voluntary public takeover offer to the shareholders of innogy SE for the purchase of their no-par value bearer shares in innogy SE against a cash consideration in the amount of €36.76 per innogy share. According to the offer document, it is also intended for the innogy shareholders to participate in the value of the dividend for fiscal year 2018 of innogy SE, which the bidder expects to amount to €1.64 per innogy share. The dividend for fiscal year 2017, which is mentioned in this context in the offer document as well, has been paid today to the shareholders. Therefore, this dividend does not increase the value of the offer.
The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of innogy SE will carefully review the presented offer to issue a reasoned statement on it as required by law. The Executive Board expressly asks all innogy shareholders to refrain from taking any action and especially from selling their shares until it has delivered this so-called reasoned statement.
