RWE AG: Ad-hoc-disclosure according to Art. 17 MAR - Equity capital measure

Essen, 06 December 2011


RWE sets offer price and subscription price of capital measure

RWE Aktiengesellschaft has determined the offer price for the accelerated bookbuilding of shares from the capital measure decided upon yesterday and the subscription price at €26.00.

All shares offered were placed with institutional investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding procedure. 52,340,499 new shares were allocated excluding shareholders’ subscription rights. 28,105,327 treasury shares were placed with institutional investors subject to the exercise of subscription rights by existing shareholders (“claw-back”).

As a result of the capital measure, RWE will receive gross issuing proceeds of around €2.1 billion. The placement is an important part of an overall package to strengthen the capital base and thus create leeway for future growth.

Delivery to investors of the 52,340,499 new shares issued as part of the accelerated placement is expected to take place on 8 December 2011. The 28,105,327 treasury shares purchased in the subscription offer and placed subject to potential claw-back are expected to be delivered on 23 December 2011.

Further information will be published in accordance with legal requirements.
