E.ON SE to tender its 170,720,340 Uniper SE shares into Fortum’s public takeover offer

ESPOO, 09-Jan-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — E.ON SE has today (08 January 2018) announced that it has decided to tender its 170,720,340 Uniper SE shares, corresponding to 46.65% of shares and voting rights, into Fortum’s public takeover offer. Furthermore, E.ON announced that the members of the E.ON Board of Management who have until now held Uniper shares privately will also tender all of their shares to Fortum under the voluntary public takeover offer. Fortum’s public takeover offer to Uniper shareholders (including E.ON) is a cash offer that carries a total value of EUR 22 per share.

“We welcome E.ON’s decision to accept our offer, which we believe is a fair reflection of Uniper’s value and performance since its spinoff from E.ON. I am convinced that investment in Uniper will deliver an attractive return and support us in accelerating the transition to a clean and secure energy future,” says Fortum’s President and CEO Pekka Lundmark.

The acceptance period for Fortum’s offer ends on 16 January 2018 at 24:00 CET. The additional acceptance period will presumably begin on 20 January 2018 and end on 2 February 2018 pursuant to the statutory provisions of the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act (WpÜG).
