Press Release

Bastei Lübbe AG: Unplanned write-down at subsidiary oolipo AG burdens the result in the second quarter

Cologne, 7 November 2017. Bastei Lübbe AG (ISIN DE000A1X3YY0) announces that - oolipo - the streaming platform for reading content, developed with considerable financial efforts, has far from reached the expected and necessary user numbers until the present day. At the same time, the search for new investors to drive forward the needed further development of the platform has been unsuccessful up to now. Upon agreement with the Supervisory Board, the Management Board of Bastei Lübbe AG, therefore, decided not to invest any further funds into the project and to undertake an unscheduled write-down.

The non-cash write-down on the intangible assets of its subsidiary oolipo AG will extraordinarily impact the consolidated EBIT of the Group in the second quarter of the current financial year in the amount of approximately EUR 3 million. Over the next months, the Management Board will consider the possibility of differently using or exploiting the developed technology.

The Management Board team of Bastei Lübbe AG, led by CEO Carel Halff, will consider the strategic direction of the Group in detail over the coming months, focusing on operational opportunities and risks, and adapt or refine the business strategy in close agreement with the Supervisory Board.
