    Bonn (ots Ad hoc-Service) -          Deutsche Telekom AG and DaimlerChrysler AG are entering into a strategic partnership in the field of information technology. As such, Deutsche Telekom will hold 50.1 percent and thus the management control of debis Systemhaus GmbH from DaimlerChrysler. This transaction is still subject to the approval of the cartel authorities and the DaimlerChrysler Supervisory Board. "This shareholding in debis Systemhaus is a major step for us toward becoming a global telematics service provider. This acquisition will make Deutsche Telekom the second largest systems company in Europe, generating considerable synergies in our home market", said the Chairman of the Board of Management, Dr. Ron Sommer. In addition, debis has a worldwide data network. This will make a major contribution to accelerating and reducing the cost of the expansion of Deutsche Telekom's global networks.

    Deutsche Telekom has defined systems business as one of its four strategic growth areas, along with mobile communications, online and network access. To date, Deutsche Telekom has been particularly active in this field with DeTeSystem.
