Updated version of the Declaration of Conformity in accordance with Section 161 Stock Corporation Act of 11 December 2018
On 11 December 2018, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of innogy SE issued a Declaration of Conformity in accordance with section 161 of Germany’s Stock Corporation Act (AktG), which needs to be updated with regard to the following point:
In future, innogy SE will once depart from Clause 7.1.2 sentence 3 of the recommendations of the “Government Commission on the German Corporate Governance Code” as published on 24 April 2017 by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection in the official section of the Federal Gazette, insofar as the consolidated quarterly statement for Q3/2019 will not be published within the recommended period of 45 days from the end of the reporting period; instead, the Q3 statement will be published on 28 November 2019. The reason for this is as follows: On 18 September 2019, E.ON SE became the new majority shareholder of innogy SE. Due to the extra effort associated with the first-time consolidation, E.ON SE stated that the publication would be postponed until 29 November 2019. To mitigate the risk of events occurring after innogy’s balance sheet date, which would have to be disclosed within the E.ON Group and might lead to differences in reporting, innogy SE decided to publish the statement of innogy SE as close as possible to the publication date of E.ON SE.
