Von Holtzbrinck exits Markt.Gruppe

08 Feb 2013

It was reported in the German media today (no official statement available) that the Rheinische Post Mediengruppe acquired the 50-percent stake in ProServ Medien Service held by the media group Georg von Holtzbrinck, thereby increasing its stake in Markt.Gruppe to 33.3 percent. Apparently, the German anti-trust authority already approved the deal.
