The industry service horizon reported, citing sale documents, “with which the DuMont media group and the Goetz partners Corporate Finance GmbH, Munich,” I instructed. The company itself wanted to relate, therefore, “to rumors basically no position”.
according to The report, the sale of regional media of DuMont is planned. For this purpose, the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger and Express, the Berliner Zeitung and the Berliner Kurier, Hamburger Morgenpost, as well as the mitteldeutsche Zeitung in Halle. In addition, all printing works, Central Services, and display sheets of the media group are affected by the plans. So only the two fields of business, Marketing, Technology and Business Information remained of the tradition.
What are the price expectations of the shareholders have not, according to the report, the documents of Goetzpartners. Potential buyers had been invited to submit a non-binding offer. According to the horizon media group has sent the documents relating to the sale of the regional media, however, already a while ago – although managing Director Christoph Bauer announced the beginning of the year, the successful implementation of a programme for the future. This should include “the introduction of Paid Content, strategic alliances and the further digitisation”.
