• History



96,061,016 freenet AG bearer shares with no par value were traded from 5 March 2007 under the securities identification number A0EAMM in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.


On 2 March 2007, freenet AG was created from the merger between mobilcom AG and freenet.de AG. On registration of the merger of the two companies in the trade register emerged one of the leading telecommunications groups in the German market offering all major communication products in the areas of internet, landline telephony and mobile communications, all from one source: broadband and narrowband access to the web including appropriate services, innovative internet telephony, mobile communications and traditional landline telephony, a comprehensive portal business as well as high-quality B2B solutions.

About mobilcom AG

The mobilcom Group began its business activity as a mobile service provider in the German D-network, and marketed mobile communications services under its own name and for its own account. In March 1997, mobilcom shares were admitted to trading on the New Market. On 24 March 2003, they were included in the TecDAX. In 1998, mobilcom extended its business activities to the landline and internet business. In the period between 1997 and 2000, mobilcom’s business grew through a series of acquisitions. At the beginning of April 2003, MobilCom Holding GmbH sold the entire landline business to freenet.de AG.

About freenet.de AG

In October 1999, all internet activities of the mobilcom Group were bundled into freenet.de AG. In December 1999, freenet.de AG shares were admitted to trading, initially on the New Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange; on 23 September 2003, they were included in the TecDAX. In the years that followed, freenet.de AG developed from a pure online service to an internet telecommunications provider. Important steps on this route were particularly the acquisition of the entire landline business of mobilcom in 2003 and, also in 2003, the entrance into the DSL business. In early 2004, freenet.de AG offered DSL users, for the first time, domestic and international internet telephony with its freenet iPhone. Furthermore, freenet.de AG acquired numerous companies and holdings in order to develop its individual businesses.
