E·on to Bid $13.5 Billion for Powergen Today

LCG, April 9, 2001Eon, Germany's second-largest utility, this morning said it would offer 5.1 billion ($7.2 billion U.S.) for British utility Powergen. Assumption of almost 4.5 billion in debt pushes the enterprise value placed on Powergen to 9.6 billion ($13.5 billion).

The price, 7.65 per Powergen share, represents an 8.4 premium over the British company's closing price on Friday, but is a 26 percent premium over the share price on January 16, the date Powergen announced it was engaged in negotiations with Eon.

Powergen's acquisition of U.S. utility LG&E Energy last year, the reason for much of its debt, is also in part the reason for Eon's interest. "Our goal is to achieve a leading position in the U.S.," an Eon official said.

The deal is subject to approvals from regulators in the U.S. and Europe. Eon hopes to close the transaction next spring, but left itself free to walk away from the acquisition if clearances are not received by July 2002.
