Continued implementation of the new Group strategy

Vattenfall Europe AG and the German city Dresden have confirmed that EnergieVerbund Dresden GmbH (EVD) intends to acquire the 21.3% interest held by Vattenfall Europe AG in Energieversorgung Sachsen Ost AG (ENSO). The purchase contract has been signed; its effectiveness now remains subject only to approval of the Dresden city council.
