RWE AG: Ad-hoc-disclosure according to Art. 17 MAR - Divestment of RWE Dea to be Completed on the Basis of an Enterprise Value of ca. EUR 5.0bn by early March 2015 at the Latest

RWE and LetterOne-Group have agreed to complete the divestment of RWE Dea by early March 2015 at the latest. The agreement is subject only to the non-occurrence of a material adverse change at RWE Dea and the approval by the supervisory board of RWE AG. The purchase price is decreased to reflect developments relating to certain exploration and production licenses. Converted into EUR, as of today’s exchange rate, the decrease results in an Enterprise Value of ca. EUR 5.0 bn. Furthermore, the parties have agreed on a structure to ensure the going concern of the UK business of RWE Dea in the event that sanctions on LetterOne or its owners were imposed. Should such situation materialize during the first year post completion, RWE will have to re-purchase the UK business, as part of such structure, on the basis of a pre-determined purchase price formula in order to carry out an on-sale to an independent third party buyer.
