ADLER Real Estate AG included in the German share index for Small-caps (SDAX)

- Admission to the SDAX with effect from 22 June 2015

- Exchange of WESTGRUND's shares for the tendered share class of WESTGRUND effective from 8 June 2015

Hamburg, 5 June 2015. ADLER Real Estate AG, Frankfurt am Main (ISIN DE0005008007), according to the Deutsche Börse AG, Frankfurt am Main, will be included in the share index for Small-caps (SDAX) following the regular review of the German share indeces for Small-caps (SDAX). The inclusion will take effect on the 22 June 2015. "We are glad about the inclusion to the SDAX, as it allows us to continue to pursue our aim of becoming more investable to institutional investors from Germany and abroad", says Axel Harloff, CEO of ADLER Real Estate.

The inclusion of ADLER to the SDAX is the result of a substantial increase of the liquidity of the share. From the end of March, 2014 till the end of May, 2015 the free float of ADLER increased from 41.77 percent to 52.83 percent. The number of the shares of ADLER increased from 16.66 million shares to 31.99 million shares. The traded value over the last 12 months rose by 12 times, to circa EUR 310 million, compared with circa EUR 25 million in the previous 12-month period. "Due to ADLER's inclusion to the SDAX we expect a further recognition in the capital market which will help us to continue to grow", according to Harloff.

Since 23 March 2015 ADLER is one of only a few German real estate companies to be listed in the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index Series. The FTSE EPRA Global Real Estate Index is an internationally used index row which is provided by the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) in Brussels in cooperation with FTSE and the Nationwide Association of Real Estate Investment Trust (NAREIT), Washington, USA. The FTSE EPRA Global Real Estate Index illustrates the worldwide development of the most important real estate companies and presently includes more than 500 stocks.

During ADLER's takeover of WESTGRUND AG, Berlin whose shares are already listed in the SDAX, Deutsche Börse AG has also decided to implement an unscheduled adjustment in the SDAX. As a result of the acquisition by ADLER Real Estate, the Westrgund AG current share class (ISIN DE000A0HN4T3) in SDAX will be replaced with the tendered share class of WESTGRUND AG (ISIN DE000A14KCW5). According to the Index Guide, this Index change is implemented with two trading days' notice once the acceptance of at least 50 percent has been reached by the end of the initial tender period, or at any time throughout the extended period. At the end of the acceptance period of the 28 May 2015, 24:00 (CET) a total of 87.75 percent of the capital and voting rights to WESTGRUND had accepted the takeover offer. The total number of WESTGRUND shares for which the takeover offer has been accepted on 28 May 2015, plus the number of WESTGRUND shares in respect of shareholders of WESTGRUND which have announced irrevocable undertakings to accept the tender offer, equivalent to approx. 93.58 % of share capital and voting rights of WESTGRUND AG.
The additional acceptance period for the takeover offer runs until 16 June 2015 24:00 (CET).
