Hamburg, 21 April 2016. ADLER Real Estate AG, Frankfurt/M. (ISIN DE0005008007), is set to further improve both its operating and financial performance during 2016. The positive guidance will be partly driven by the 2015 acquisitions and their respective full year contribution to the Company's 2016 results; ranging from the significant synergies generated with the take over of Westgrund AG in June 2015 as well as from the ongoing improvements to the Company's asset management capabilities.

Gross Rental Income is expected to reach c.EUR260m by December 2016 marking a 20% increase compared to the FY 2015 (FY 2015: EUR216,6m). This result will be attributable to both a c.2% increase with the in place rent increasing from EUR4.93 sqm/m as at FY2015 to EUR5.04 sqm/m expected for December 2016, as well as a c.2% reduction in vacancy going from 11.2% as at FY2015 to 9.20% by December 2016. Occupancy is therefore anticipated to increase from 88.8% to 90.8% by December 2016.

As a result of ongoing operational improvements, in place rent, vacancy reduction and synergies, FFO I is expected to significantly increase by c.55% to c.EUR25m. "ADLER's development in recent years has been driven by substantial acquisition-based growth. In 2016, we will reap the first full benefits of income growth from our operating business and exploit initial synergy benefits by integrating our various organisations", comments Arndt Krienen, a member of ADLER's Management Board. "The underlying framework in property markets is still very strong. There is growing demand for living space, and that not only in conurbations but also in the peripheral locations where most of ADLER's housing portfolios are located." Krienen stressed that ADLER continues to review further acquisitions opportunities.

FFO II is expected to reach EUR45m in line with 2015 results and subject to one off transactions, this could substantially increase as the privatisation market evolves, especially in Berlin where c.90% of ACCENTRO Real Estate AG's Residential property portfolio is currently located.

Further improvements to the company's cost of debt are expected in 2016 with a target WACD of 3.75% or below (3.99% for FY 2015 and 4.7% for FY 2014) as ongoing refinancing measures take effect. The Company's Loan to Value ("LTV") is expected to continue to improve with an indicated LTV target of c.65% by FY 2016 ((67.96% FY2015 and 68.7% FY2014). The Company's EPRA NAV should reach c.EUR1.0bn by FY2016 increasing by more than 10% compared to FY2015 result of EUR879m.

"We expect 2016 to be a very solid financial year for ADLER, one in which we continue to seize market opportunities while working to ensure the long-term performance from our property portfolio", concludes Krienen.
