Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Frankfurt (Main) / Berlin, 26 April 2013. Today, Deutsche Wohnen AG announced that it entered into a purchase agreement for the acquisition of a residential real estate portfolio comprising approximately 6,900 residential units that is held by various companies.
The purchase price for the acquisition of the residential real estate portfolio consists of a cash component amounting to EUR 260 million, as well as a share component of 8,150,000 new no-par value ordinary bearer shares of Deutsche Wohnen AG.

Today, in order to fulfill the required/agreed share component, the Management Board of Deutsche Wohnen AG, with approval from the Supervisory Board, resolved on a capital increase in the nominal amount of approximately 5 % of the current share capital against contributions in kind and under exclusion of shareholders' subscription rights. The company's share capital shall be increased by EUR 8,150,000, from EUR 160,757,143 to EUR 168,907,143, through the partial exercise of the authorised capital 2012/II and against a contribution in kind of shares in the real estate companies. To this end, 8,150,000 new no-par value ordinary bearer shares shall be issued to the sellers, i.e. companies which are to be attributed to Blackstone Group L.P. The new shares carry full dividend rights as of 1 January 2013.

The new shares shall be admitted to trading on the regulated market (regulierter Markt) within three months following the conclusion of the transaction, and are expected to be included in the existing quotation for the company's shares in the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Today, Deutsche Wohnen AG further announced that it has also acquired an additional residential real estate portfolio, comprising roughly 900 residential units in Berlin, for a gross purchase price of approximately EUR 51 million in cash.

In total, the approximately 7,800 residential units, of which roughly 7,400 are located directly in the city of Berlin, are being purchased at an in-place rent multiple of around 14x, meaning for approximately EUR 840 per sqm. In total, the current gross rental income amounts to approximately EUR 29.7 million per year. Both portfolios are financed with approximately 55% debt and are expected to contribute a recurring FFO yield of approximately 8% pre-tax.

With this acquisition, Deutsche Wohnen will increase its existing residential real estate portfolio from approximately 82,500 residential units to 90,300 residential units, of which 54% are located in Greater Berlin. For Deutsche Wohnen, this acquisition represents yet another attractive opportunity in the consistent continuation of its value-adding growth strategy, which capitalises on economies of scale and improves the FFO profile.

Assuming general/standard purchase agreement conditions, e.g. antitrust clearance, are met, the acquisition of the real-estate portfolios, including the completion of the capital increase, will be concluded in the coming months.
