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.


Deutsche Wohnen AG: Half-Year Results 2007

Deutsche Wohnen AG / Half Year Results

Release 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.

For the first half of 2007 Deutsche Wohnen shows within Groups income statement a loss of EUR 4.4 million for profit before tax and a loss of EUR 5.3 million for profit after tax.

Information and Explaination of the Issuer to this News:

Above mentioned results as at 30 June 2007 were primarily influenced by the following issues:

- Profit from Deutsche Wohnen’s core business of residential property management rose by a substantial EUR 3.1 million to EUR 26.2 million, due to the consolidation of DB Immobilienfonds 14.

- The number of privatized apartments also rose in Q2 2007 but remained below the prior-year level (272 sales recognized on the balance sheet as against 345 in H1 2006). The segment result for the housing privatization segment declined by EUR 2.0 million to EUR 0.9 million.
- The net increase in employee expenses of approximately EUR 0.5 million resulted from a severance payment made to a member of the Management Board who left the Company.

- Resulting interest expenses of EUR 1.4 million based on again tendered limited partnership interests in DB 14 and a compounding of the liabilities to fund limited partners.

- The impairment loss of EUR 2.2 million charged on a receivable was already explained in Q1 2007.

We are maintaining our full-year 2007 forecast for consolidated profit before tax of EUR 1 million that we released on July 3, 2007. This forecast includes both the merger with the GEHAG Group and the change in real estate accounting policies to the fair value model.
