ADLER Real Estate AG included into FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index

- Inclusion in the index effective from 23 March 2015

- Eleventh German real estate company in the index

Hamburg, Germany, 9. March 2015. ADLER Real Estate AG, Frankfurt/M., Germany, (ISIN DE0005008007), will be included in the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index Series with effect from 23 March 2015. The decision was taken by the committee which is responsible for the composition of the index at its quarterly revision meeting. There are currently ten other German listed real estate companies included in the index, therefore ADLER will be the eleventh German one to be included. For a company's listed securities to be included into the index important criteria needs to be met. This includes, but is not limited to, company size, market capitalization, liquidity in the stock's trading, trading volumes, the companies' free float as well as revenue and EBITDA growth of the individual issuer.

FTSE EPRA Global Real Estate Index is an internationally used index series developed by European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) in Brussels, Belgium, in cooperation with FTSE and National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), Washington, D.C., USA. FTSE Group, London, UK, is specialized on the provision of different financial indices. Important share indices are e.g. the FTSE 100 Index ("Footsie") or the FTSE 250 Index. FTSE EPRA Global Real Estate Index reflects the global development of the most important real estate companies. It currently comprises 534 stocks. Especially institutional investors or funds use the index as a guidance for their investment decisions in special investment products as well as derivatives or Exchange Traded Funds.

"We are pleased by the inclusion into this important index and we are glad our capital market orientation as well as ADLER's very strong and successful growth is thereby honoured", says Axel Harloff, CEO of ADLER Real Estate AG. "The inclusion into the index will result in a significantly growing attention also from international investors. We expect ADLER to become increasingly attractive for the portfolios of special funds and investors. Therefore our share price should positively reflect the company's growth at any time." Following the takeover of WESTGRUND AG, Berlin, Germany, ADLER will hold approx. 52,000 residential units at mid-year, thereby almost seven times as much as at the end of 2013.
