Deutsche Bahn AG Key Developments

Arcelormittal and Deutsche Bahn Sign Contracts for Delivery of Rails

ArcelorMittal and Deutsche Bahn signed contracts for delivery of rails for another year. Tracks will be delivered from Dabrowa Gornicza, among others. Both companies plan to jointly develop new products for the railway sector.

At the beginning of September, the production plant in Dabrowa Gornicza launched deliveries of 120-metre long tracks to be used for modernization of 20-kilometre long section of track bed between Rostock and Wismar in eastern Germany.

Deutsche Bahn Reportedly Mulls Listing Of DB Schenker And Arriva

Deutsche Bahn AG is planning to get its units listed. The company is looking to get Schenker AG (DB Schenker) floated on the stock market. According to media report, Deutsche Bahn AG will select the lead banks to organize an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of the unit, in June 2016.The news report added that Deutsche Bahn is expected to sell up to 40% of Schenker, currently valued at around €5 billion, on the Frankfurt stock exchange and the potential listing is most likely in 2018. The proceeds may be used to finance its restructuring and pay down debt, the report added. The company is also looking to get Arriva plc listed on the London stock exchange in 2017.

Deutsche Bahn Mulls To Sell Stake In DB Schenker

Deutsche Bahn AG has announced plans to move forward with the sale of a stake in its DB Schenker Rail AG forwarding and logistics business. An official statement indicated that the Deutsche Bahn management board will develop an implementation plan for a third-party minority holding in DB Schenker, as well as its international train and buses arm, Arriva plc. Deutsche Bahn supervisory board chairman, Utz-Hellmuth Felcht said the action would help resolve a growing debt crisis at Deutsche Bahn, "If we don't take action, the group's debt will increase substantially by 2020. A third-party equity interest limits the level of debt and creates the financial scope necessary to continue the quality and investment campaign in Germany." A final decision on the matter is planned for this coming autumn said the company.
