FRANKFURT (Reuters) - E.ON (EONGn.DE) on Wednesday said it would seek to delay two key votes at the annual general meeting of Uniper (UN01.DE), evading a decision on whether to support a motion brought by activist Elliott to appoint a special auditor.

The proposal to delay that decision as well as the vote on whether to endorse management, which is a standard procedure at AGMs in Germany, was brought forth by Guntram Wuerzberg, E.ON’s general counsel.

Sources had told Reuters on Tuesday that E.ON would likely file such a motion.
