Dissemination of a Post-admission Duties announcement according to Article 50 Para. 1, No. 1 WpHG transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.


The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.



On May 3, 2019 the annual general meeting and the preferred shareholder
meeting of RWE Aktiengesellschaft, Essen, resolved that all non-voting
preferred shares shall be converted to voting bearer common shares. The
corresponding amendments of the company"s Articles of Incorporation were
entered into the Company"s commercial register at the District Court
(Amtsgericht) Essen on June 28, 2019 and thereby became effective.

Following the entry of the amendments of the Company"s Articles of
Incorporation all previous non-voting bearer preferred shares have been
converted into voting bearer common shares abolishing the preferred
dividend stipulated in Article 4, Paragraph 4 of the previous version of
the Articles of Incorporation.

The conversion of preferred shares to common shares does not affect the
amount of the Company"s capital stock. It still remains EUR
1,573,748,477.44. However, henceforth, the capital stock consists of
614,745,499 non-par value voting bearer common shares. The share of each
shareholder in the Company"s capital stock thus remains unchanged.

The conversion of the preferred shares into common shares requires a
conversion of the stock market listing. The depositary banks will adjust
the holdings of their customers in preferred shares of RWE
Aktiengesellschaft to common shares of the Company at a ratio of 1:1 and
change the previous securities identification numbers from ISIN
DE0007037145 and WKN 703714 to ISIN DE0007037129 and WKN 703712. The
conversion of the preferred shares is solely conducted via the collective
security deposit system. No actions are required by the shareholders
themselves.

All of the 39,000,000 voting bearer common shares created by the conversion
of the 39,000,000 non-voting bearer preferred shares shall be admitted upon
application to the trading on the regulated market on the Frankfurt Stock
Exchange and on the section of the regulated market with additional post
admission obligations (Prime Standard) as well as on the regulated market
on the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange on June 28, 2019. Commencement of trading
and listing is scheduled for July 1, 2019.
