Axel Springer Verlag – interest in T-Online? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! – Süddeutsche.de
- In an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung has Axel-Apringer CEO Mathias Döpfner the accusation, from the publisher make a service company want to.
- He also made it clear that no Springer takeover of T-Online Internet platform plane. Last week the Telekom had for the first time publicly acknowledged that the portal up for sale.
- “We are interested in at present particularly the English-speaking world,” says Döpfner the SZ.
From Varinia Bernau and Caspar Busse
In the 18th floor of the Axel Springer tower in Berlin was vigorously rebuilt. CEO Mathias Döpfner, 52, and his fellow board members have now only eleven square small individual offices behind a glass wall. Is discretion demand, they can at least draw a thin white curtain. Döpfner are gladly demonstratively open and modern. He opens his smartphone the techno music and explains how he wants to reinvent the traditional publisher new
Axel Springer has set in recent years a lot of money in Internet portals where you -. Such as StepStone – looking for a new job or – can compare prices – as in Idealo. And the group has broken up with newspapers. This has Döpfner, is introduced for 14 years CEO reputation to turn the publisher a services company
An accusation is unjustified in his opinion -. Because at Springer, as he emphasizes, even in the analog days only one-third of the crew was in charge of journalism, and the remainder allowed to sell ads that newspapers and magazines only. “If we want to emancipate the idea of the newspaper from the paper, we have to go this route. Other no longer believe in journalism and invest in IT start-ups or e-commerce. This is rescuing a company by changing the business purpose,” says Döpfner in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung . “This is precisely the way we do not go.”
“A takeover of T-Online’s very unlikely”
Also, why was Axel Springer recently as one of the most promising buyers traded for T-Online. The Internet site where you can read news, but can log for an email service that reaches so many people like no other in Germany. But Döpfner now granted the maneuver a rejection – even if it still remains open one last option. “A takeover of T-Online’s very unlikely,” says Döpfner.
So far, T-Online is one of Deutsche Telekom. In the past week but had Tim Höttges, CEO of Telekom, the first time publicly acknowledged that the portal up for sale. The group have already initiated talks with potential buyers, he said at the meeting in Cologne. The business behind the website on which you can read news, but can log for an email service that have outlived their usefulness.
Höttges who leads the Telekom since one and a half years, attaches great importance to that the company focuses on its strengths – namely the provision of networks. Out of business with another of its portals, Scout 24, the Telekom withdrew in November-2013. The Group has 70 percent of its shares in the company that had grown up with the Internet classifieds, transferred to an American financial investor – and it pocketed 1.7 billion euros. That was more than many industry observers had thought possible. Recently it was said that a takeover of T-Online by Springer hinauszögere because both companies have different price expectations.
“Our priorities are different”
Mathias Döpfner now set clear, however, flirting with other acquisitions. “Our priorities are different,” he said. “We currently interested especially the English-speaking world.” The group, many companies look at. “If you knew how many projects we consider you would be quite nervous as a journalist. But 90 percent of things not be realized just because we do not want to pay the asking price, because the company is not yet so attractive, because we from Management are not convinced “

It is not a good year for German Rail: Even after the continuous labor dispute has with GDL and ECG to an end, there is more bad news. Whether the web can still save in the black, is uncertain.
- Damage due to strikes is higher than annual profits
- train has 17 billion euros of debt
- Group urgently needs reforms
as a result of nine waves of strikes by train drivers union GDL has the German Railways (DB) in 2015 are afraid to slip into the red. “The strike by train drivers’ union GDL have previously cost us already since last autumn more than 300 million euros,” said railway CFO Richard Lutz of “world”.
In other words, the damage caused by the labor dispute with the train drivers’ union is already larger than the net profit last year. “With regard to profit, this year is a real challenge for us,” Lutz.
17 billion euros of debt
The railway had in March for the past year said earnings before taxes announced and interest (EBIT) of 2.1 billion euros. Of this you have to deduct EUR 800 million for interest payments. The Group’s debt of around 17 billion euros. In addition, 200 million euros income taxes and € 700 million dividend to the federal government have to be paid. There are also other loads. “At the end of stay in 2014, when we deduct all costs and expenses, EUR 288 million at the box office,” reckoned Lutz before.
In order to prevent the group from sliding into the red, would Bahn CEO Rüdiger Grube reduce costs, increase revenues and lead to huge transport more efficient. Among other things, would have to go as far in the second half a lot more trains with more passengers. However, a significant increase is unlikely

Pull strike ” like a train behind us “
” After such a series of strikes, the people do not rise just as before in the trains. The people organize themselves differently, go back by car or bike, carpool. Much of it will be held until the first snow comes.
We like pulling a train behind us, “said a railway manager. The collective agreement with the rail union ECG and a possible conclusion to the GDL on the other hand will continue to drive up costs.
This threatens not only a loss year, but significant delay in the ambitions of the train. The Board intends to invest in the coming years on a large scale, so that the Group can grow strongly in the passenger and goods transport around the world.
train needs more investment
The last 288 million euros, the the results remain after deducting all costs and burdens at the box office, “are not sufficient to fund annually planned by us growth investments of around one billion euros,” said Chief Financial Officer Lutz.
Actually should the investment over sharp rise in revenue to finance. But the board is at least for the time being only to make new debt – not a satisfactory condition for the DB executive. “From 2017 we will be investing on their own, so they can lift out of cash flow. At least that is our aim. In the long run no one can finance investments through debt, “says Chief Financial Officer Lutz

Dusseldorf. On June 1 important rules come into force in favor of tenants: The rental price brake and rules for broker commission. NRW will dampen rents along the Rhine. Show Exclusive figures how much prices rise. By Reinhard Kovalevsky and Thomas Reisener
Should the Federal Government their promise. In its coalition agreement the CDU and SPD announced in 2013 easier for the nearly 36 million tenants in Germany – Monday will the new regulations in force
The “buyer” principle does away with the hated broker commission, the tenant will have to pay almost inevitably in metropolitan areas to get to attractive apartments. In future must pay the broker, who commissioned him – usually so well the landlord. Furthermore, to prevent “the rental Brake” that only the wealthy can afford good neighborhood: If an apartment free, the landlord may require the new tenant at most ten percent more than the customary rent that holds any city in the so-called rent index. “This will lead to a strong cap on new rentals,” says Thomas Abraham, market expert at the Research Institute Empirica, “because the offer price of many rental apartments are significantly higher than the rent index in prestigious cities.”
Example Dusseldorf: The square meter in homes built between 1961-1976, according to cost rent index 5.95 Euro to 7.75 Euro in the middle range. But for new leases total calls, according to a calculation of the Institute Empirica for our newspaper every other landlord at least 9.09 euros per square meter, sometimes even more.
But it will take until the “Rent brake” act now is , Because “authorized” the new federal law, the only countries to their implementation. For this they need to define areas where the new Mietdämpfer should apply itself. In any case, does not apply the “Rent brake” for new buildings.
So far Berlin is the only country where the rental rate brake engages at the earliest on 1 June. According to the Ministry apartment it is introduced in NRW earliest to July 1, 2015. And “in the communities in which a tense housing market exists,” said a ministry spokesman. A corresponding report is NRW-Minister of Housing Michael Groschek (SPD) before he considers it, however, still a secret. Only should decide the Cabinet in June. When asked where the introduction of the rent brake is most likely, the spokesman said: “In the well-known metropolitan areas, for example on the Rhine”. Groschek in particular the rent levels in Dusseldorf publicly criticized in the past. In many districts of Cologne, Bonn and Münster the situation
is considered tense. Even when “ordering principle” there are hooks. It’s an idea from NRW: 2012 demanded Groschek in this newspaper: “Who ordered the broker who also paid him. That’s a fair principle” through the Bundesrat exercised NRW print in Berlin and sat down by – the “buyer principle” becomes law. Nevertheless, tenants associations warn of pitfalls. What will change?
brokers may continue to request up to two net rents plus VAT. Theoretically could broker their money always also the owner charged – but that was possible at best in bad-to-place apartments. Future have to pay the broker, who instructed him. Quite possible that the landlord prefer to take the business therefore again in the future into their own hands. The protest of two brokers who therefore saw their existence in danger, the Federal Constitutional Court dismissed this week.
tenants protectors warn that landlords could the brokerage costs retrieve now over rent increases again. The market will tell if this experiment works. Landlords who renounce this trick, have a competitive advantage. The second option is to high transfer fees for furniture or other furnishings. Should this usurious prices are charged, the tenant can retrieve the money by commencing an action. Prices that exceed the value by half are considered vulnerable
Reported was already of the following stitch:. Agents submit a commission-free apartment, which is then already taken and provide interested parties an alternative to. So might still an accommodation request load of the tenant caused. However, most brokers just invent their profession again. According to a survey of the portal “Real world” want to retire now about 15 percent of brokers from the rental business. A third wants to specialize in rich clients, which the commission is indifferent
It was a promising start to the year, but now loses the job market momentum. According to economists, this trend will continue in the coming month well.
After growing skepticism in labor market researchers now go even economists of major German banks only by a low dynamic on the German labor market , Although they expected this year to continue with falling unemployment, but no longer with the pace as the beginning of the year, they reported in a survey by the German Press Agency. Last week the Nuremberg Institute for Employment Research (IAB) had forecast a stagnation for the coming months.
For the economists of May of a decline in unemployment by around 80,000 to 2.763 million from. This would be about 120,000 fewer than a year ago, the experts reported, citing its own calculations. Similarly strong the May unemployment had fallen on average over the past three year. The official unemployment figures will announce the Federal Employment Agency (BA) this Tuesday (June 2nd) in Nuremberg.
“We still expect that the unemployment decreased slightly, but less as at the beginning, “says the German Bank economist Heiko Peters. In addition to the somewhat weaker economy in the first quarter this probably also play a role of mild winters. “As a result, the labor market development was oversubscribed positive at the beginning,” says the economist. After deducting seasonal factors, the number of unemployed would have fallen by only 5,000 in May.
Meanwhile crystallize after observations of economists gradually the impact of the new minimum wage regulations out. According to Allianz economist Rolf Schneider is distinguished now from clear that the minimum wage has led to the elimination of marginal employment, particularly in eastern Germany especially. It as not only the mini-job statistics out, but also for some months stagnant seasonally adjusted number of employed persons. “We have had no employment growth in the last three months.”
