    Dear Sir
    Congratulations! I have rarely read such a thorough description of Axel Springer’s historical roots and future strategic aspirations. However, one fact is missing that even adds to the somehow unconventional career of Mr. Döpfner: in his early years as CEO (2007), he was responsible for an extraordinary loss of almost €600m due to the writeoff of PIN Group, a venture created to compete in the newly privatized mail delivery market (see http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/insolvenz-pin-pleite-bringt-springer-in-die-roten-zahlen-a-539040.html).
