MVV Energie to cut personnel and material costs

Mannheim, 17 December 2010. By enhancing its efficiency, the Mannheim-based energy company MVV Energie AG aims to cut its material and personnel costs by between Euro 20 million and Euro 30 million per annum by the 2012/13 financial year. This necessitates a provision requirement of around Euro 31 million in the current 2010/11 financial year. These restructuring expenses have no impact on the company´s adjusted EBIT. Alongside the reductions in material costs, it is also planned to cut around 450 jobs at the Group in a socially responsible manner by 2020. With these efficiency enhancement measures, the company is laying foundations consistent with its strategic focuses, involving investments in renewable energies, environmentally-friendly district heating, in its energy-related services and environmental energy business fields, and in expanding its nationwide sales activities.
