Notification pursuant to § 62 para. 3 UmwG

        Pursuant to § 62 para. 3 of the German Transformation Act (Umwandlungsgesetz, "UmwG"), it is hereby made public that a statutory merger of Deutsche Telekom AG, having its registered office in Bonn and registered in the Commercial Register of the district court (Amtsgericht) of Bonn under HRB 6794 ("Deutsche Telekom"), as transferor company, and T-Online International AG, having its registered office in Darmstadt and registered in the Commercial Register of the district court (Amtsgericht) of Darmstadt under HRB 7641 ("T-Online"), as transferee company will take place. The legal basis for the statutory merger is the Merger Agreement between Deutsche Telekom and T-Online dated 8 March 2005. The Merger Agreement was filed at the Commercial Register of Deutsche Telekom.

        By virtue of the merger, T-Online shall transfer all its assets in their entirety with all rights and obligations pertaining thereto by way of dissolution without winding up to Deutsche Telekom by way of absorption (Verschmelzung durch Aufnahme) under §§ 2 et seq. and 60 et seq. UmwG in exchange for the granting of shares in Deutsche Telekom to the shareholders of T-Online (other than Deutsche Telekom). The assumption by Deutsche Telekom of T-Online's assets shall enter into effect internally upon the expiry of 31 December 2004. As of 1 January 2005, all acts and transactions of T-Online shall be deemed to have been undertaken for the account of Deutsche Telekom ("Merger Effective Date"). The merger shall be based upon the balance sheet of T-Online dated 31 December 2004, which will serve as a closing balance sheet and which was provided with an unqualified audit opinion by PwC Deutsche Revision Aktiengesellschaft Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Frankfurt am Main. Further details are set out in the Merger Agreement dated 8 March 2005.

        The Merger Agreement will be presented to the T-Online shareholders' meeting to pass a resolution on its approval. This shareholders' meeting will be held on 28 April 2005. In the event that the end of the agenda has not been reached by the close of the meeting on that day, the meeting will be continued on the following day.

        Deutsche Telekom holds more than 90% of T-Online's share capital. Therefore, pursuant to § 62 para. 1 UmwG, a merger resolution of the Deutsche Telekom shareholders' meeting is not required. According to § 62 para. 2 UmwG, however, the shareholders of Deutsche Telekom have the right to request the convening of a shareholders' meeting to pass a resolution on the approval of the merger. If Deutsche Telekom shareholders whose shares together amount to 1/20 of the share capital of Deutsche Telekom so request, a merger resolution passed by the Deutsche Telekom shareholders' meeting will be required in derogation from § 62 para. 1 UmwG (§ 62 para. 2 UmwG). The shareholders of Deutsche Telekom are hereby notified of their right under § 62 para. 2 UmwG.
