Deutsche Bahn AG Key Developments

DB Plans To Privatize Its Subsidiaries Are In Doubt

Deutsche Bahn AG plans for the potential part-privatisation of Deutsche Bahn arms Schenker AG and Arriva plc are in doubt, following government indications that it not pleased with the plans. DB was hoping to secured up to €4-5 billion from a sale that could be set against its debt or reinvested in the business. However, the government is said to be blocking the move pending discussions over the way the proceeds are spent. A decision was expected at an extraordinary general meeting of DB supervisory board which was pencilled in for February 8, 2016, but this is said to have been postponed with a decision not now expected at least until March 2016. A decision may be taken at a scheduled supervisory board meeting on March 15, 2016.

Deutsche Bahn To Decide Asset Sales In February At Earliest

Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft will decide on a partial sale of Arriva plc and Schenker AG in February at the earliest, the daily Stuttgarter Zeitung reported, citing company sources. Stuttgarter Zeitung said the supervisory board would discuss the restructuring and job cuts but not asset sales at a meeting scheduled for Wednesday. Sources told Reuters last month that talks to sell minority stakes in Arriva, which operates Deutsche Bahn's passenger transport business outside Germany, and the Schenker logistics arm had stalled due to disagreements between the government and company over how to split the proceeds. Deutsche Bahn declined to comment on supervisory board decisions.

Deutsche Bahn To Sell Minority Stake In Arriva And Schenker

Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft is looking for investors in its Arriva passenger transport business, Arriva plc and its Schenker logistics unit, Schenker AG, Ruediger Grube, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Bahn said to Welt am Sonntag. Grube said, "We will not give up majority ownership at Arriva or Schenker. Both groups will continue to be fully consolidated at Deutsche Bahn in the future." Grube adds, "The Arriva stake sale could start as early as end-2016, though finding investors for Schenker will need more time."
