Realignment of the B2B telecom­munications business in the Germany operating segment

Our B2B telecommunications business was realigned with effect from July 1, 2020. A new B2B entity was created in the Germany operating segment, and the assets and liabilities previously assigned to the Systems Solutions, Europe, and Group Headquarters & Group Services segments have been transferred to the new entity. Prior-year comparatives in these segments (development of operations, customer development, headcount development, and order entry) were adjusted retrospectively.

For further information on the realignment of the B2B telecommunications business and on the different consummation dates required under company law, please refer to the section “Group organization.”
