E.ON comment in relation to updated Issues Statement published by CMA

By ScottSomerville E.ON has today (WED) taken note of the updated Issues Statement produced by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

Commenting on the publication of the material an E.ON spokesman said: “We note with interest the updated Issues Statement published today by the CMA and as is right, will now review the material in advance of responding in detail.

“When the original Issues Statement was first published we set out why we believed the original theories of harm did not apply and requested that factors such as intrusive regulation and the political climate should be considered as additional factors. We will of course consider the new publication in light of these factors and others. Additionally, with specific respect to the focus on the supply of energy, it should be highlighted that the CMA makes clear that its update is given at an earlier stage of development than other areas.

“Throughout this process and since we first called for a full market investigation in 2011, we have been open and fully supportive of the detailed and thoughtful investigative work undertaken by the CMA and we will continue to provide all necessary and relevant information.”

E.ON’s original response to the Issues Statement, published by the CMA on the 24th July 2014, can be viewed at: https://assets.digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk/media/53f1c30540f0b62d98000017/EON_response_to_IS.pdf
