Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft Key Developments

Deutsche Bahn to Spend EUR 1 billion on Tunnel Modernization over Five Years

Deutsche Bahn will spend around EUR 1 billion (USD 1.1 billion) on tunnel reconstruction over the next five years. The railway company plans to modernize around 18 historic tunnels by 2019. Further 36 tunnels will be overhauled by 2024. The project will be financed by the EUR 28 billion modernization programme of the government. A total of EUR 8 billion will be spent on maintenance and repair works.

Germany Shelves Idea Of Deutsche Bahn Privatization

The German government has quietly scrapped plans to look into partly privatizing Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft. Under pressure from the Social Democrats (SPD), who has always been wary of selling off one of the country's biggest companies, the coalition changed the wording in a report on state assets that had previously described such a step as an "option" for the future. The revised report approved by the cabinet on Wednesday now reads: "The conditions for a partial privatization of the transport and logistics divisions (of Deutsche Bahn) are currently not right."

Deutsche Post And Telekom To Be Sold

The German government intends to sell stakes in Deutsche Post AG (XTRA:DPW) and Deutsche Telekom AG (DB:DTE). A finance ministry document seen by Reuters, which is due to be approved by Chancellor Angela Merkel's cabinet on November 12, 2014, has plans for the stake holding of the government in a range of companies. Sale of shares of Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft is also an option. Any sale now would depend on market conditions, the document said. Deutsche Telekom shares were up 1.88% at €12.5.
