Frankfurt (Main) / Berlin, October 24, 2012. Today, Deutsche Wohnen AG informed its shareholders of an extraordinary general meeting it has called for December 4, 2012 in Frankfurt (Main). The management board, with the support of the supervisory board, intends to create a new authorized capital in an amount of 50% of the current share capital at the extraordinary shareholders meeting.

The reasoning behind this proposal is Deutsche Wohnen's belief that large volume portfolios and a number of smaller portfolios are currently on the market or will be in the near future. These present excellent acquisition opportunities for Deutsche Wohnen to make use of the favorable circumstances in the consolidation of the German residential real-estate market.

The authorized capital approved by the general meeting in June 2012 has almost completely been utilized for the capital increase in June 2012. Within one year, the proceeds of the last two rights issues in November 2011 and June 2012 of around EUR 620 million have almost completely been invested in the Dusseldorf portfolio (1,160 units), the BauBeCon portfolio (more than 23,000 units), acquisitions in greater Berlin (around 1,500 units), and a further acquisition of about 5,100 units which has been notarized. Deutsche Wohnen aims to obtain new authorized capital, amounting to 50% of the current share capital already, in order to be fast and flexible in transaction processes.
