Mega Deal announced in German Domain Trade

European Market Leader for Online Tyre Sales Secures Coveted German Domain: www.reifen.de

Hanover, 13.02.2003 The acquisition of the most popular Internet domain in the German tyre industry www.reifen.de underlines the headstart of the European market leader in online tyre trading, Delticom. Starting immediately, the German online shop of the Hanover-based tyre dealer, accessible by means of the brand name www.reifendirekt.de, will now also be available via the new domain. "In this way, the domain and the shop name are equivalent to the classic search term used by tyre customers. In future we will be found even easier", explained Delticom Managing Director Rainer Binder.

The seller is a domain trader that would like to remain anonymous. Both sides have agreed to maintain silence regarding the exact selling price amounting to " a six figure sum in Euros". "This deal belongs to the biggest ever carried out in Germany", explained Tim Schumacher, CEO of sedo.de, Germany's largest domain dealer. Delticom is confident, that the investment will be worth it. "At last, you can buy tyres at reifen.de ", said Andreas Prüfer, the Managing Director responsible for E-Commerce. Delticom is confident that tyres will establish themselves as a product, besides books and CDs, that is bought via the Internet. Prüfer explained: "We're going to make tyres fit for the Internet."
