The company recently announced it will cut 10,000 jobs worldwide, citing a loss of revenue stemming from the decision of the government of German Chancellor Angela Merkel to phase out nuclear energy. Germany has 17 nuclear power reactors, eight of which are operated by E.ON, that are scheduled to be phased out of operation by 2022. (Photo by Mathis Wienand/Getty Images)
