DEAG Deutsche Entertainment AG is expanding its involvement in the family and crooner segment and strengthening its local event business in the Frankfurt/Rhine-Main metropolitan region

Berlin, February 13, 2017 – DEAG Deutsche Entertainment AG (DEAG), Berlin, listed on the Prime Standard (ISIN: DE000A0Z23G6, WKN: A0Z23G), has sold its stake in the Würzburg-based Manfred Hertlein Veranstaltungs GmbH, which it held through Gold Entertainment GmbH, the company it co-operated together with Sony Music.

In addition, DEAG intends to increase its shares in Gold Entertainment GmbH to 100%. The company will thus increase its control in its family entertainment and crooner segment and drive the development in this area. These measures will make it possible to utilize DEAG’s own formats, such as Disney On Ice and others, more efficiently in this area.

Furthermore, the DEAG Group will hold more events in the Frankfurt/Rhine-Main metropolitan region that it produces itself in the future.

“We have achieved a great deal together with Manfred Hertlein and his team since 2010, and we will realize certain productions together in the future. Nevertheless, this step was important in order to be able to take better advantage of our opportunities in this segment,” commented Christian Diekmann, COO/CDO of DEAG.
