Essen/Germany, 12 August 2009. The Arcandor Management Board will end its search for a new anchor investor for Arcandor AG on 15 August 2009. Due to most recent developments and a difficult market environment the prospects for attracting an anchor investor allowing the Group to continue as a going concern are by now considered to be extremely low. The Management Board is now particularly focussing on finding investors for the Group's retail segments, Karstadt and Primondo.
