Hamburg, 30 October 2015. ADLER Real Estate AG ("ADLER Real Estate," ISIN: DE0005008007 / WKN: 500800), Frankfurt am Main, Germany continues to take the necessary actions to improve its key financial metrics. The corporate bond 2015/2020 (ISIN: XS1211417362) which was successfully issued in April 2015 in a nominal volume of EUR 300 million was increased by EUR 50 million to EUR 350 Mio. The offer was made in a private placement only and exclusively with qualified investors outside the United States of America. The increase is expected to further improve the liquidity of the instrument. The use of proceeds will go towards primarily the refinancing and further growth.

"We are committed to both growing the Company by way of acquisitions and improving our key financial metrics", says Axel Harloff CEO of Adler Real Estate AG. "Between FY14 and H115 we were able to reduce our WACD from c.4.70% to c.4.15%. The refinancing of some of our existing debt will further improve our WACD as we continue to align ourselves with industry peers." Given the nature of the use of proceeds, the issuance is not expected to change the Company's LTV ratio nor its Interest Coverage Ratio.

The placement was managed by ODDO SEYDLER BANK AG, Frankfurt am Main, as the Sole Global Coordinator together with ODDO & CIE., Paris, as the Joint Bookrunner.
