    San Francisco/Hamburg (ots Ad hoc-Service) - Intershop Communications AG (NASDAQ: ISHP; Neuer Markt: ISH), a leading provider of e-business software, today announced the first phase of a global reorganization, effective immediately, with the elimination of approximately 80 positions within its US-based organization. This number represents approximately 30 percent of the company's U.S.- based workforce.
