Share buyback October 2013

RWE AG acquired 451,750 ordinary shares of RWE AG (ISIN DE0007037129) with a value of some €12.0 million in the time period from 1 to 23 October 2013.

The shares bought back were used for the issuance of employee shares in connection with the Company’s share option programme for its employees (Belegschaftsaktienausgabe) for the year 2013.

The shares were repurchased on stock exchanges at the most favourable terms for RWE AG. The mandated bank was not allowed to determine a purchase price which exceeded the price of the last independent trade at the respective stock exchange or the highest current independent bid. The higher of both values was decisive. The bank was not allowed to acquire more than 25 % of the average daily volume of shares in one day on the stock exchange on which the purchase was carried out. The average volume of shares is based on the average daily volume of shares traded in the twenty trading days preceding the date of purchase.

27.09.2013: Admission duties to follow announcement pursuant to Art. 4 para. 2 of the Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003: RWE AG intends to acquire shares

The share buyback was finalised on 23 October 2013.
