German stock market authorities had announced the return of Fielmann to the MDAX index of mid-cap companies, which was reduced from 70 to 40 values at the end of March, but they subsequently said that the German optical retail giant would remain in the SDAX. Fielmann was going to replace Buderus, which has been taken over by Bosch, but the stock will continue to trade as 5 percent of it is still floating. Fielmann could make it back into the MDAX soon. As a consolation, Günther Fielmann, nicknamed GüFi by insiders, went under the big media spotlights a few days ago in receiving the ?German founder's prize,? given annually to successful entrepreneurs by the ZDF television channel, Stern magazine, McKinsey & Co. and other sponsors.
