(AP) The publisher of the Financial Times' German offshoot says production will be stopped shortly and some 320 employees will lose their jobs.


The Financial Times Deutschland, which has a circulation of about 100,000, was launched at the height of the Internet boom in 2000 but was never profitable.


Hamburg-based publisher Gruner + Jahr said in a statement Friday it sees no way to continue publishing the loss-making paper beyond Dec. 7 amid further falling advertisement revenues.


The paper's journalists first reported that the daily is about to be stopped after a board meeting Wednesday.


The publisher of the English-language Financial Times, Pearson PLC, sold its stake in the German paper in 2008, but it continued to appear on the same distinctive salmon-colored paper.
