ADLER Real Estate evaluates financing opportunities for further real estate portfolios

- Company sees interesting possibilities for acquisition of residential real estate portfolios for further profitable growth

- Possible financing measures can include loans as well as another corporate bond

Hamburg, 14 March 2014 - ADLER Real Estate AG, Frankfurt/M., (ISIN DE0005008007), currently evaluates financing opportunities for further investment options, which are assessed as attractive, in residential portfolios for a continuation of the growth strategy. ADLER's investments are focused on residential properties especially in B- or peripheral locations of congested areas in Germany which after deduction of all costs generate positive cash flows from their ongoing management.

"Our strategy has been proven successfully already in business year 2013, as evidenced by the preliminary results of ADLER Group", comments CEO Axel Harloff. According to these preliminary figures, which have been disclosed last Tuesday, ADLER's consolidated earnings according to IFRS increased to EUR 46.9 million (previous year: EUR 0.5 million). The significant rise in earnings mainly results from revaluations of the acquired shares in residential real estate portfolios according to IFRS standards such as from disposals of several properties and shareholdings.

"Currently we are evaluating our entry into further portfolios, primarily consisting of residential properties, for further growth of our operating business such as the available financing opportunities. In addition to ordinary bank loans we are furthermore evaluation the possibilities for issuing another corporate bond. We are expecting strong growth perspectives for ADLER Real Estate for residential real estate and focused our strategy on this area", Mr. Harloff continues.

Over the past year and at the start of the current year ADLER acquired majority participations at residential real estate portfolios of altogether more than 10,000 units. These acquisitions were partially financed by a five-year corporate bond with a volume of originally EUR 20 million and after an increase EUR 35 million.
