KGaA</org> has taken note of the <org>Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure&apos;s</org> unilateral termination of the contract (with effect from <chron>30 September 2019</chron>) with the operating company to levy the infrastructure charge. Together with our joint venture partner Kapsch TrafficCom AG, we are now reviewing the reasons for the termination, and its implications. The contracts concluded with the Federal Government contain protective provisions intended to prevent pecuniary damages for the operating company and its shareholders. This also applies in the event that the infrastructure charge is not introduced.</p> <p><i><b>About CTS EVENTIM</b><br/> CTS EVENTIM is one of the leading international providers of <org>Ticketing and Live Entertainment</org>.
