Deutsche Telekom

DT is the German incumbent telecom operator. As of YE17, the German state still owns approximately 32% of the company. The group reports 168 mn mobile subs and 27.9 mn fixed-network lines at YE17. DT is well diversified but the majority of revenue is focused in mature and well developed markets of Europe and the US. The group reports through 5 main segments: Germany (28% of FY16 net revenue), United States (47%), comprising its 65% owned publicly traded subsidiary T-Mobile US; and (other) Europe (15%) representing operations across a range of Central and Eastern European states; Systems Solutions (7%), its IT and communications solutions business for multinational corporations and public sector institutions; and the new Group Development segment (2%), comprising selected subsidiaries and/or equity investments of the group for more active management. DT is generally #1 or #2 in its markets, with the notable exception of T-Mobile US where it is the 3rd largest mobile operator. Since January 2014, Tim Hoettges has been CEO, and Thomas Dannenfeldt has been CFO. (20 Sep 2018)
