Telefónica Deutschland grants network access to Drillisch in view of the E-Plus acquisition Munich, June 25, 2014 - Today, Telefónica Deutschland signed an agreement with Drillisch, according to which Drillisch agreed to acquire, in addition to the capacity necessary to provide services to its existing customers hosted on Telefónica Deutschland's or E-Plus' networks, 20 % of the capacity of all mobile networks that will be under the control of Telefónica Deutschland following the consummation of the proposed acquisition of E-Plus Group. The 20 % will be reached via a glide path mechanism over a period of 5 years. In addition, Drillisch shall have the right to acquire up to 10% additional capacity of those networks. Telefónica Deutschland will grant Drillisch, via a Mobile Bitstream Access model, access to the future joint network of Telefónica Deutschland and E-Plus, as well as to the existing and future technology developments on that network, which Drillisch may offer to its customers. The agreement has been entered into with a view to the pending decision by the European Commission in the merger control proceeding relating to the acquisition of E-Plus by Telefónica Deutschland, which is expected in the near future. By means of the agreement certain remedies shall be implemented, which Telefónica Deutschland offered during merger control proceedings in order to remove competition concerns of the European Commission. The Agreement with Drillisch will become effective only if the European Commission conditionally clears the acquisition of E-Plus and confirms that the Agreement with Drillisch complies with the conditions and obligations possibly attached to the approval of the proposed transaction. The decision by the European Commission with respect to the merger is expected for July. Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG entered into an agreement relating to the acquisition of E-Plus Group from Koninklijke KPN N.V., Den Haag, on July 23, 2013. 25.06.2014 DGAP's Distribution Services include Regulatory Announcements, Financial/Corporate News and Press Releases.
