Arriva plc Key Developments

Jesmond Bus Depot Up For Sale

Arriva plc's two-acre freehold site has been put up for sale. Sanderson Weatherall has been appointed to sell the site. Kevin McGorie, partner in Sanderson Weatherall's agency department, said: "Jesmond is one of the most desirable areas in Newcastle, attracting young professionals as well as the city's student population. It is very unusual for a plot of this size to become available in this area, so I expect that a lot of developers will be looking to secure the site."

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.
