Macmillan is itself owned by German-based, family run company Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH. "To defend its leading position in the profitable market for business information Holtzbrinck partnered with long-term American affiliate Dow Jones & Company to plan a new weekly business title. In 1994 Verlagsgruppe Handelsblatt and Dow Jones had taken over German business news agency Vereinigte Wirtschaftsdienste (VWD) and Czech publisher Economia. Since November 1995 the two companies had coordinated their strategies and cooperated in marketing of advertising and their electronic databases Genios and Dow Jones News Retrieval.

While both periodicals were expected to stay independent, an intensification of the exchange of content, and cooperation in ad sales and distribution was planned."
