      Cologne (ots Ad hoc-Service) - OnVista AG (DE0005461602), the
leading provider of high-quality financial information and analysis
tools on the Internet in Germany, has acquired a 12.36 per cent
interest in ALTUS Analytics AG. This was agreed today by the two
companies in Berlin. ALTUS is a full- service streaming media group
and is specialised in the transmission of audio and video streaming.
Streaming media is a technical process linking audio and video data
with other text and graphical information and transmitting them in
real time over the Internet. The interest will be acquired through
OnVista Beteiligungs-Holding GmbH, a 100 per cent subsidiary of
OnVista AG.

  The purpose of taking this interest is a strategic co- operation between OnVista AG and ALTUS Analytics AG. The two companies are planning to present events and background information pertaining to stock markets and finance by audio and video streaming on the Internet no later than in 2001. It is planned, for instance, that General Shareholder meetings, Annual Report and IPO press conferences will be broadcast. It is also conceivable that the companies will develop their own program formats for the Internet dealing with all aspects of the stock markets. The transmission platform will be the website www.onvista.de, one of the most successful German finance portals with more than 55 million page views a month. OnVista will hereby leverage the increasing convergence between TV and the Internet, and realise first mover advantages. The technical realisation of audio and video content will be performed by ALTUS. This Berlin based company is presently the leading European producer of audio-visual streaming sports content on the Internet. Together with the German Soccer Association (DFB) and the Bundesliga teams, ALTUS manages for instance the official homepage of the German Soccer League, www.bundesliga.de.
