Hengeler Mueller advises Deutsche Telekom on all stages of T-Online reintegration

12. June 2006

The merger of T-Online into Deutsche Telekom AG took effect on 6 June 2006 through entry of the merger into the commercial register of Deutsche Telekom. The merger was preceded by a voluntary tender purchase offer made by Deutsche Telekom to all T-Online shareholders. The merger, against which some T-Online shareholders had filed lawsuits, was cleared by the Appellate Court Frankfurt am Main in February 2006. Appeals filed against this decision were dismissed by the Federal Court of Justice at the end of May 2006. In October 2004 Deutsche Telekom had announced its decision to pursue the reintegration of T-Online.

Hengeler Mueller advised Deutsche Telekom AG on all stages of the transaction. Advice was provided by partner Rainer Krause, counsel Claudia Junker, partners Daniel Wilm and Klaus-Dieter Stephan in addition to associates Fabian Siegler and Björn Hürten.
