Tchibo's revitalization program fails to make an impact

Tchibo's sales have continued to contract, profits are down, and the management have continued to blame the discounters. Furthermore, with more and more store closures, and one failing initiative after another, the outlook for this beleaguered retailer is bleak.

Tchibo: hoping for H2 turnaround

Germany-based retail group Tchibo Holding's first half results have suffered from the impact of hard discounters Aldi and Lidl on non-food sales. Top line sales at Tchibo declined by 4% during the half to E1.7 billion, while EBIT dropped 57%. Tchibo needs to speed up its premium repositioning to achieve an improved second half performance.

Tchibo: tensions among the board members

According to newspaper reports, a parting of the ways between Tchibo and its CEO seems increasingly likely. Suffering from the non-food assault of the hard discounters, Tchibo could combat declining sales by leveraging the significant synergy potential the Beiersdorf acquisition has given the coffee maker and retailer. This strategy change might require a new face at the top.

TeGenero Mab causes shock side-effects in UK trial

A phase I UK clinical trial of TeGenero's TGN1412 has stirred up a storm of controversy after trial participants suffered serious adverse events soon after taking the drug. While this event could have a number of implications for drug developers, it needs to be weighed against the need for new medicines, especially in chronic disorders.

TeGenero: bankruptcy beckons

German biotech firm TeGenero has filed for bankruptcy just four months after a catastrophic safety trial with its immunomodulatory drug candidate TGN1412 left six healthy volunteers fighting for their lives. However, this does not necessarily signal the end for TGN1412, which may still have a future if anyone is brave enough to take it on for further research.

Telefonica/Sonera: Quam-ing customers onboard

Quam (once Group 3G) is currently acting as an MVNO, reselling E-Plus' 2G services. Its aim is to win a customer base now, and migrate users to its own 3G services late next year. But while this is a good customer acquisition strategy, it is also certain to be expensive. It looks like Germany's 3G market will not be a good place to make money for some years.

Telefonica/Sonera: ungrouping in 3G

Telefonica and Sonera have axed their German joint venture Group 3G, which traded as Quam. But although it shows how hostile the German mobile market is to new entrants, the closure shouldn't be taken to mean that 3G is dead in Europe. For firms with large enough resources and customer bases, data services should still offer the chance to make money.

Temma: organic growth in Germany

The Temma market and deli concept store, opened in Cologne, Germany by Rewe, will retail organic and locally produced food and have a large cafe area. Although the format follows the trend of other German grocers launching organic private label ranges due to increased consumer demand for such goods, higher prices and a niche target market mean potential rollouts will need to be assessed closely.

Tengelmann: looking to dispose discount arm

After the disposal of Plus' Spanish operations to Carrefour, the core German business is reportedly also up for sale. Edeka and Rewe, the two powerhouses of German retailing, have expressed an interest in the retailer. Through the acquisition, Edeka could strengthen its neglected Netto chain, while Rewe would massively increase buying power and store portfolio of its underperforming Penny format.
