E.ON to sell US Power and Gas Business to PPL Corporation

E.ON is to sell its power and gas business in the US to PPL Corporation, Allentown, Pennsylvania (PPL). The two companies signed contracts and agreed the purchase price of 7.6 billion US-Dollar, a price that is very attractive for E.ON AG. With this disposal E.ON has already surpassed its target to realize at least 10 billion Euro from the divestment of assets by the end of 2010. The transaction is subject to the approval of U.S. cartel and regulatory bodies. E.ON US will be treated as discontinued operations for the whole of 2010. This technically reduces Adjusted EBIT by approximately 400 million Euro and Adjusted Net Income by approximately 260 million Euro, but has no effect on net income attributable to shareholders. Accordingly there is also no change to the 2010 Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted Net Income outlook on a pro-forma basis. As part of the transaction, E.ON will record a goodwill impairment of approximately 0.9 billion Euro in the first quarter of 2010. This figure is based on the not finally ascertained and approved interim financial statement and might therefore be subject to change.
