Business Overview – Principal Activities and Principal Markets
In the early years, innogy Finance B.V. (at that time named RWE Finance B.V.) had been an issuer under RWE's Debt Issuance Programme. In December 2015 innogy Finance B.V. including its senior capital market debt was sold to innogy group.
From 2017 until the acquisition of innogy Group by E.ON, innogy Finance B.V. acted to facilitate the financing of innogy Group under innogy’s Debt Issuance Programme. The external funding of innogy group was inter alia carried out by innogy Finance B.V. under guarantee by innogy SE, and the funds were then on-lent within the former innogy Group.
Bonds of innogy Finance B.V. are guaranteed by innogy SE but not by E.ON SE.
innogy Finance B.V. is a wholly owned (indirect) subsidiary of E.ON SE and has no subsidiaries of its own.
Bond transfer to E.ON
Holders of innogy bonds had been offered E.ON SE as new debtor or guarantor. In a complex, multi-step process, 17 bonds were transferred on the basis of the German Bond Act while two bonds underwent exchange offers. An outstanding 99.95 percent of the total principle has ultimately been transferred. All bonds transferred now fully benefit from E.ON’s credit ratings and transparent group financial reporting. In turn, all innogy rating contracts have been terminated.
