Ad hoc: Celesio AG: Celesio AG acquires majority stake in DocMorris

Thursday, 26. April 2007 10:20

Stuttgart, 26 April 2007 - Today the Supervisory Board of Celesio AG
has approved the share purchase agreement on the acquisition of circa
90% of the share capital of WWMW e-commerce international GmbH, the
holding company of the DocMorris-group. The remaining circa 10% of
the share capital are being held by the management of DocMorris.
Through this acquisition Celesio gets hold of the only pharmacy brand
which is known all over Germany. By doing so, Celesio sets a clear
signal against discounters and both national and international
interested parties without a traditional relation to the pharmacy
business. At the same time, Celesio establishes the basis for
strengthening the market position of the customers of its German
subsidiary GEHE. DocMorris will remain legally independent within the
Celesio-group. The acquisition is subject to clearance by the German
Competition Council (Bundeskartellamt).
