Ad-hoc reports

According to Article 17 of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 (Market Abuse Regulation - MAR) domestic issuers of financial instruments are obliged to immediately publish insider information that concerns them directly.

The purpose of the ad-hoc disclosure requirement is to ensure full and proper market transparency, which is a prerequisite for trading for all economic actors in integrated financial markets and which is essential to avoid insider dealing and ensure that investors are not misled.

The regulation has been in force since 3 July 2016. Older notifications are based on § 15 WpHG (German Securities Trading Act) that applied before.

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 am Main / Berlin, November 14, 2011 - Today, the management board of Deutsche Wohnen AG, with the approval of the supervisory board, resolved on a capital increase against cash contributions with shareholders' subscription rights. The Company's share capital shall be increased through the exercise of the previously authorized capital from EUR81,840,000 by up to EUR20,460,000 to up to EUR102,300,000 against contribution in cash through the issue of up to 20,460,000 new no par value bearer shares. The new shares carry full dividend rights as of January 1, 2011.
The new shares will be offered to shareholders for indirect subscription at a ratio of 4:1 at a subscription price for each new share yet to be determined. Four existing shares of Deutsche Wohnen entitle the holders to subscribe for one new share. Subject to the approval of the prospectus by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht - BaFin) and the publication of the approved prospectus, the subscription period is expected to begin on November 15, 2011 and end on November 28, 2011. Any new share not subscribed for by the end of the subscription period will be offered by way of a private placement. The management board, with the approval of the supervisory board, will determine the subscription price of the new shares of the subscription offer, the offer price of the new shares of a possible private placement as well as the final issue volume by way of separate resolutions.
The subscription price per new share is expected to be set after the close of trading on November 24, 2011, taking into account the volume-weighted average price for one bearer share of Deutsche Wohnen AG on the electronic trading system XETRA on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange from the beginning of the subscription period on November 15, 2011, until close of trading on November 24, 2011, less a discount to be determined by the management board of the Company with the approval of the supervisory board of the Company. The size of the discount will take into consideration an estimate of the volatility of the price of the Company's shares at the time of pricing, as well as market risks specific to the Company. The Company reserves the right, in particular in the event of unfavorable market developments, to terminate the subscription offer.

The Company is targeting to receive gross proceeds from the capital increase of up to EUR200 million. The net proceeds are to be used for selective acquisitions in our existing core regions or in German metropolitan areas. A EUR130 million portion of the net proceeds will be used in the short-term for the repayment of credit lines utilized in past portfolio acquisitions and the financing of already signed acquisitions. After the repayment the credit lines will be available for further potential acquisitions. Subject to a continued favorable market environment for acquisitions, we expect to invest the total net proceeds within the next 12 to 15 months.

Subject to the approval and publication of the prospectus, the subscription rights (ISIN DE000A1K03C7/WKN A1K03C) for the new shares will be traded during the period from November 15, 2011, up to and including November 24, 2011, on the regulated market (regulierter Markt) (XETRA and XETRA Frankfurt Specialist) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The Company's existing shares will be quoted as ex-subscription rights (ex Bezugsrecht) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange; such quotation is expected to commence on November 15, 2011.

The new shares are expected to be included in the existing quotation for the Company's listed shares in the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligation (Prime Standard) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on December 1, 2011.

Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley and UBS Investment Bank act as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners for the capital increase.
