Jena, Germany, 13 February, 2017 - Intershop Communications AG (ISIN: DE000A0EPUH1), a leading provider of e-commerce solutions, today announced changes to its Management Board. As of April 9, 2018, Markus Klahn will join the current Management Board of Dr. Jochen Wiechen and Axel Köhler as COO (Chief Operating Officer). As such, Mr. Klahn will be responsible for the Company's services portfolio.

Intershop customers are increasingly realizing their digitization projects on the basis of a cloud solution and related services. Accordingly, the further development of this segment is to be driven forward. This includes both the range of services offered and the adaptation of business processes for a cloud-driven business model.

Christian Oecking, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Intershop Communications AG, comments: "In addition to the further development of Intershop's leading commerce platform and the support of digitization projects for customers worldwide, Intershop is currently undergoing a systematic transformation towards cloud business. The strengthening of the Management Board in this respect not only reflects the growing importance of the cloud business, but will also continue to support the Company's own transformation process ".

Dr. Jochen Wiechen, Intershop's Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are pleased to have the support we need, both in quickly bringing new customers onto the Azure platform and in adapting processes for a cloud-driven business model. Both will help to build on and accelerate the success we have achieved."

Axel Köhler, CSO (Chief Sales Officer) will focus on developing new and existing customer business in order to achieve the Company's ambitious objectives in terms of growth. He will be responsible for sales and marketing, driving forward the positioning of the cloud offering in the market.

With Markus Klahn, Intershop has gained an experienced sales and market expert for the management, particularly in terms of the market positioning of software solutions. As such, he will complement the Management Board team with his experience from previous management positions in medium-sized software companies. Prior to joining Intershop Communications AG, he was a member of senior management at Proalpha, an ERP provider, and most recently at Jaggaer, a pure SaaS provider in the procurement sector.

Aves One AG: kursziel deutlich angehoben

Die Aves One AG ist im Geschäftsjahr 2017 abermals dynamisch gewachsen. Der Umsatz stieg um fast 90 % auf über 53 Mio. EUR an. Der jetzt gemeldete Erwerb von umfangreichen Rail-Assets (VTG/Nacco-Deal) soll zu weiteren Steigerungen beitragen. Wir erwarten weiteres Wachstum von über 40% im laufenden Jahr sowie einen dynamischen Anstieg in den Folgejahren. Das Ziel von 1 Mrd. Assets und Managment könnte bereits 2019 und damit ein Jahr früher erreicht werden. Unsere Analysten sind vom VTG/Nacco-Deal überzeugt und haben das Kursziel deutlich auf 12,10 Euro erhöht (bisher 9,10 Euro).
