Uwe Tigges, chief executive officer at innogy, said it would be commenting on announcements from RWE and E.On "in due course".
Following completion of the transaction, RWE would combine ownership of the renewables businesses of E.ON and innogy to create a leading European utility for renewables and security of supply with a broadly diversified portfolio of renewable and conventional generation assets, which would be linked via our existing trading business.
RWE, which owns 76.8 percent of Innogy, saw its shares gain as much as 14 percent and E.ON was up 6 percent.
"It was a competitive process", one of the sources said, adding that RWE had chose to strike the deal with E.ON after considering proposals from peers.
Innogy is understood to have been caught off-guard by the agreement struck by its parent company RWE over the weekend, but sources believe the company may already be developing contingency plans to steady the deal with SSE.
Trump botches the election scorecard again
He said his unprecedented meeting could go two very different ways: "We may leave fast" or strike one of history's greatest deals. And, always the showman, he dropped a bit of news, revealing the slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign: Keep America Great.
It would leave E.ON operating primarily as an energy networks and retail specialist, with RWE significantly strengthening its position in the renewables and clean energy generation markets.
Germany's power companies are reshaping as they look to boost green energy output, shift away from fossil fuels and prepare for Germany's exit from nuclear power in 2022. Further, RWE will receive the minority interests now held by E.ON's subsidiary PreussenElektra in the RWE-operated nuclear power plants Gundremmingen and Emsland.
And the deal could see the creation of a new European renewables giant.
RWE is being advised by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Citi on the deal, E.ON has hired Perella Weinberg Partners and BNP.
The planned large-scale asset swap went down well with shareholders. Today it reported 2017 results, saying its adjusted net profit grew by 9% to more than Euro 1.22 billion.

Characters zip from one planet to the next with little connective tissue, and we must accept each narrative jolt at face value. Even when working with a major studio and a major property, she has made a movie that's completely her own, flaws and all.
