German uitlities E.ON, RWE in energy market shakeup

Shares in Innogy were up 13.8 percent to 39.28 euros at 1025 GMT after Sunday's proposed deal from RWE and E.ON, which plans to offer Innogy's minority shareholders 40 euros per share, or 5.2 billion euros, a 16 percent premium to Friday's close.
