Deutsche Bahn eyes sale of Ar­riva sub­sidiary

EME Outlook - - N Ew S -

Ger­many’s state-owned rail op­er­a­tor Deutsche Bahn is con­sid­er­ing the sale of its Ar­riva in­ter­na­tional sub­sidiary.

There are thought to be dif­fer­ing opin­ions within both com­pany lead­er­ship and po­lit­i­cal cir­cles as to how to plug a multi­bil­lion-dol­lar fi­nan­cial gap, with the sale of Ar­riva said to be among the op­tions.

Deutsche Bahn has been un­der in­tense scru­tiny re­cently fol­low­ing a trou­bling pe­riod of fail­ing punc­tu­al­ity.

It is thought that, if sold, UK- head­quar­tered Ar­riva could raise around $4.5 bil­lion. How­ever, value estimates are cur­rently dif­fi­cult to pro­duce due to on­go­ing uncer­tainty over Bri­tain’s de­par­ture from the Euro­pean Union.
