E.ON SE secured a five-year, €3.5 billion syndicated credit facility with credit margins linked to its environmental, social and governance ratings.
The facility has two options to extend the maturity by one year each, E.ON said in an Oct. 24 news release. E.ON can increase the volume by €750 million. The facility replaces two syndicated credit facilities of €2.75 billion of E.ON and €2 billion of innogy SE.
The company said the loan will help in the financial integration of innogy as it moves forward with the complex asset exchange deal with RWE AG.
The transaction was placed with a group of 21 banks from the existing banking group of E.ON and innogy. Commerzbank and UniCredit acted as coordinators.
