DB AG originally planned to take its subsidiary DB ML AG public in October 2008. However, in view of the extreme uncertainties in the financial markets resulting from the financial crisis, and the need to set an issue price appropriate to the value of the company, Deutsche Bahn AG and its owner, the German government, decided to postpone taking DB Mobility Logistics AG public.
