The index performance was beset by concerns about the development of the global economy – especially the trend in China – and possible interest rate rises by central banks. The DAX 30 and the Dow Jones Euro STOXX 50© more or less stagnated and closed the third quarter down 1.5 percent and up 0.5 percent respectively. The Nikkei fared similarly, closing the first nine months down 0.4 percent. The trend in the United States was much weaker, with the Dow Jones recording a decrease of 8.6 percent. Against this background telecommunications securities, which are classi­- fied as less cyclical, performed well. The Dow Jones Europe STOXX 600 Telecommunications© increased by 6.5 percent in the first three quarters of 2015. Once again, the Deutsche Telekom share clearly outperformed the already relatively strong telecommunications stocks as a whole. As of September 30, 2015, growth stood at 23.6 percent on a total return basis. HIGHLIGHTS IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2015 CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS On August 12/13, 2015, we concluded an agreement with Ströer on the sale of our online platform and our digital marketing company InteractiveMedia.ThetransactiontooktheformofacapitalincreaseofStröer in return for the non-cash contribution of the two companies. In return, we received newly issued shares in Ströer worth around EUR 0.3 billion. This corresponds to a stake of around 11.6 percent, allowing us to continue profiting from any growth in value. The transaction was completed on November 2, 2015 following approval by the Federal Cartel Office and the fulfillment of additional closing conditions. INVESTMENTS IN NETWORKS AND SPECTRUM Since the start of September 2015, we are represented with 4G/LTE in all our European mobile markets: Telekom Albania kicked off with the market launch of 4G+ with speeds of up to 225 Mbit/s, initially in seven major cities. For the launch of LTE services, Telekom Albania acquired frequencies of two lots of 20 MHz in the 2.6 GHz range for around EUR 3 million in May 2015. EXPANSION OF BRAND PRESENCE Our subsidiaries in the F.Y.R.O. Macedonia, Makedonski Telekom and T-Mobile Macedonia, became one company as of July 1, 2015. For this purpose, T-Mobile Macedonia was merged into Makedonski Telekom. Furthermore, our Albanian subsidiary Albanian Mobile Communications (AMC) was renamed Telekom Albania in July 2015. With Albania, the 12th country in our European footprint has now turned “magenta” and taken on the identity and values of the Deutsche Telekom brand – innovation, competence and simplicity.
