Financial Times

The landmark deal between German utilities E.ON and RWE remains on track for completion next year according to RWE, reports Tobias Buck in the Financial Times. Both groups reported quarterly results that were broadly in line with market expectations and reaffirmed their full year targets. E.ON plans to take over RWE’s innogy, followed by a series of asset swaps that will leave E.ON focused on regulated energy networks and retail customers, and RWE as a leading European energy producer that will own the renewables assets of both E.ON and innogy.
