E.ON makes use of different funding instruments. In addition to bonds, commercial papers and other opportunistic financing structures (such as promissory notes or private placements), E.ON also has access to a five-year, €2.75 billion syndicated revolving credit facility, which was concluded with 18 banks on November 13, 2017, and which includes two options to extend the facility, in each case for one year. This facility replaced the former €3.5 billion facility. This facility is undrawn on and rather serves as a reliable, ongoing general liquidity reserve for the E.ON Group. The 18 banks that were invited all participate in the credit facility and therefore constitute E.ON’s core group of banks.
At year-end 2017, E.ON's financial liabilities amount to approx. €13 bn.
These are split up as follows:
