Telegraaf Media Groep (TMG) plans to acquire the 40 percent interest in Jaap.nl owned by DSB Bank. DSB Bank, a small privately owned mortgage and loans bank, went bust Oct. 19 after clients emptied their accounts when rumors hit the newspapers that DSB was on the brink of bankruptcy.
TMG currently owns 50 percent of Jaap.nl and has declared it wants to continue to run Jaap.nl “but not at any cost.”
At this stage it is unclear if the curators are indeed doing business with TMG or if other parties are interested to purchase a minority share in Jaap.nl. Hans Voorn of Jaap.nl is confident in both cases his real estate site will survive the DSB bankruptcy.
