Arriva became DB's largest ever acquisition when the Euros 1.9 billion
takeover of the British bus and train operator was agreed last year.
However, the EC ruled last August that DB would have to sell Arriva's
German rail and bus businesses to a third party in order to maintain
competition in these markets.

The value of the Arriva Germany transaction has not been disclosed, but
it means FS and Cube have become the country's third-largest regional
rail operator.
