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.

Frankfurt am Main / Berlin, January 15, 2013 - Today, the management board of Deutsche Wohnen AG, with approval from the supervisory board, resolved on a capital increase in the amount of 10% of the current share capital against cash contributions and under exclusion of shareholders' subscription rights. The Company's share capital will be increased from EUR 146,142,858 to EUR 160,757,143, through the exercise of part of the new authorized capital in the amount of EUR 14,614,285, which was resolved upon by the shareholders' meeting on December 4, 2012. For this purpose, 14,614,285 new no-par value ordinary bearer shares will be issued by the Company. The new shares carry full dividend rights as of January 1, 2012.
The proceeds from the last two capital increases in November 2011 and June 2012, amounting to approximately EUR 620 million in total, were invested almost entirely over the course of the year as a result of the acquisitions in Dusseldorf, of the BauBeCon portfolio, as well as additional acquisitions in the greater Berlin area and of another portfolio comprised of approximately 5,100 residential units. Furthermore, additional acquisitions in Berlin (approximately 5,200 residential units and nursing homes with a total of 425 places) were signed by the end of 2012. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this offering to finance its recently signed transactions and selective future acquisitions, as well as for general corporate purposes.

The Company confirms its FFO guidance for the full financial year 2012 of at least EUR 65 million (without disposals). Given the most recent acquisitions, the management board of Deutsche Wohnen AG expects a recurring FFO (without disposals) of approximately EUR 100 million, after taxes, for the current financial year 2013.

The new shares shall be admitted to trading on the regulated market (regulierter Markt) without a prospectus 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. The new shares shall be offered to institutional investors for purchase by way of an accelerated bookbuilding. BofA Merrill Lynch and UBS Investment Bank will be acting as Joint Bookrunners for the transaction.
