ADLER Real Estate AG welcomes clarification of speculations and rumours

- Full and proactive transparency by ADLER vis-à-vis the Takeover Commission and Financial Markets Authority in Austria

- Statement clarifying the requests for information by the Austrian authorities

Frankfurt/Main, 9 March 2016. Prior to the EGM of conwert Immobilien Invest SE, Vienna, which is scheduled for 17 March 2016, ADLER Real Estate AG, Frankfurt/M., (ISIN DE0005008007) had already been in contact with the Austrian Takeover Commission since mid-February 2016. ADLER's aim has been and remains that of proactively contradicting in advance, the speculative nature of the various rumours currently circulating in order to invalidate all incorrect information which was apparently deliberately released in the market, as well to ensure full and complete transparency vis-à-vis the Takeover Commission.

Yesterday, ADLER was informed by the Austrian authorities of the initiation of investigation proceedings regarding the relevant participation thresholds and if they were exceeded. In particular, it will be investigated whether ADLER Real Estate AG and further parties are to be qualified as parties acting in concert in relation to conwert Immobilien Invest SE, Vienna.

In this context, ADLER confirms that neither ADLER nor MountainPeak Trading Ltd., the subsidiary holding 22.37% of the shares in conwert, have entered into agreements or have made any arrangements with Petrus Advisers LLP or other parties with respect to conwert. From ADLER's perspective, it is undisputed that there is no acting in concert. ADLER will answer all questions asked by the Austrian authorities which may be helpful to bring clarity to this case, and will continue to act in the best interest of conwert and its shareholders.
