Deutsche Telekom AG - Interim Group report - January 1 to March 31, 2011

69 To Deutsche Telekom AG We have reviewed the condensed consolidated interim financial statements – comprising the statement of financial position, the income statement and state- ment of comprehensive income, the statement of changes in equity, the state- ment of cash flows, and selected explanatory notes – and the interim Group management report of Deutsche Telekom AG, Bonn, for the period from Janu- ary 1 to March 31, 2011, which are part of the quarterly financial report pursuant to § 37x (3) of the German Securities Trading Act (Wertpapierhandelsgesetz – WpHG). The preparation of the condensed consolidated interim financial state- ments in accordance with the IFRSs applicable to the interim financial reporting as adopted by the EU and to the interim Group management report in accord- ance with the provisions of the German Securities Trading Act applicable to interim group management reports is the responsibility of the parent company’s board of management. Our responsibility is to issue a review report on the condensed consolidated interim financial statements and on the interim Group management report based on our review. We conducted our review of the condensed consolidated interim financial statements and the interim Group management report in accordance with German generally accepted standards for the review of financial statements promulgated by the Institut der Wirtschaftsprüfer (Institute of Public Auditors in Germany) (IDW) and additionally observed the International Standards on Review Engagements, “Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity” (ISRE 2410). Those standards require that we plan and perform the review so that we can preclude through critical evaluation, with moderate assurance, that the condensed consolidated interim financial statements have not been prepared, in all material respects, in accord- ance with the IFRSs applicable to interim financial reporting as adopted by the EU and that the interim Group management report has not been prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the provisions of the German Securi- ties Trading Act applicable to interim group management reports. A review is limited primarily to inquiries of company personnel and analytical procedures and therefore does not provide the assurance attainable in a financial state- ment audit. Since, in accordance with our engagement, we have not performed a financial statement audit, we cannot express an audit opinion. Based on our review, no matters have come to our attention that cause us to presume that the condensed consolidated interim financial statements have not been prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the IFRSs appli­ cable to interim financial reporting as adopted by the EU nor that the interim Group management report has not been prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the provisions of the German Securities Trading Act applica- ble to interim group management reports.
