Montabaur, February 10, 2016. Via its subsidiary United Internet Ventures
AG, United Internet AG today contractually secured the acquisition of a
share package amounting to approx. 15.31% of shares in Tele Columbus AG,
Berlin, Germany. The closing of the acquisition is subject to approval by
the German anti-trust authority ("Bundeskartellamt").

If the acquisition is approved, United Internet AG would have a total
indirect shareholding - together with further shares acquired in the course
of today - of 25.11% in Tele Columbus AG.

United Internet believes that Tele Columbus AG is a well positioned company
with attractive market opportunities and will accompany the company's
ongoing development as a strategic investor and benefit from its growth in

United Internet AG does not, however, currently intend to acquire an equity
stake of 30% or more in Tele Columbus AG - which would oblige it to submit
