European Hydro Power: No Resentment Between VERBUND and E.ON

2/6/2002Wien

VERBUND wishes to make clear that - contrary to claims spread by an Austrian daily - there is no resentment between E.ON Energie AG and VERBUND.

Neither did E.ON call the economic leadership position of VERBUND in European Hydro Power GmbH (EHP) into question nor Salzburg as head office of the company.
