Munich / Planegg, 12 September 2013 - telegate AG today announced that the
action brought by Deutsche Telekom AG against the company (ref. no.: OLG DD
VI U 27/12), in which the former monopolist was seeking payment of data
costs of EUR 5.54 million for the years 2005 to 2008, has been dismissed by
the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court. The case had already been dismissed
by the Bonn Regional Court in April 2011. Deutsche Telekom had lodged an
appeal against this decision. Now, the claim has also been rejected in the
next higher instance by the competent higher regional court. A further
appeal is not permitted, which means that Deutsche Telekom cannot challenge
the judgement again. The ruling gives telegate legal certainty for the
period in question; at the same time, Deutsche Telekom is required to
refund the company legal expenses and court fees of close to a six-figure
sum.

The action brought by Deutsche Telekom against telegate AG was one of
several lawsuits in which the two parties have been embroiled for several
years, disputing the costs for the provision of subscriber data. The recent
decision marks a further success for telegate AG in this legal tug of war,
at the same time providing a positive basis for ongoing suits, in which a
total of over EUR 100 million is still in dispute. In 2012, following final
rulings by the Federal Court of Justice in three court cases, Deutsche
Telekom was required to repay telegate AG around EUR 100 million.
