RWE does not comment on press speculation regarding a possible takeover of innogy by third parties

After yesterday’s emergence of market rumours regarding a takeover of its financial asset innogy by third parties, RWE clarifies that it does not comment on market rumours.

Furthermore, RWE clarifies that in 2015 the Supervisory Board of RWE AG decided in connection with the IPO of innogy that RWE can in principle sell innogy shares and thereby reduce its stake to 51%. There are no further corporate decisions in place in this context.
