Montabaur United Internet boss Ralph Dommermuth has, as expected, increased his stake in the Internet company to over 50 percent. The Ralph Dommermuth GmbH & Co. KG Beteiligungsgesellschaft, which he controls, has concluded purchase agreements for the acquisition of 15.2 million shares in United Internet AG, United Internet announced on Wednesday evening. That corresponds to a stake of 7.4 percent of the shares in United Internet AG. With the completion, Dommermuth’s controlled stake in the company will increase to around 50.1 percent.
Due to these package acquisitions, the manager is waiving a previously considered voluntary purchase offer for 17 million shares in United Internet AG.
