ADLER Real Estate evaluates financing opportunities for further real estate
portfolios

  - Company sees interesting possibilities for acquisition of residential
    real estate portfolios for further profitable growth

  - Possible financing measures can include loans as well as another
    corporate bond

Hamburg, 14 March 2014 - ADLER Real Estate AG, Frankfurt/M., (ISIN
DE0005008007), currently evaluates financing opportunities for further
investment options, which are assessed as attractive, in residential
portfolios for a continuation of the growth strategy. ADLER's investments
are focused on residential properties especially in B- or peripheral
locations of congested areas in Germany which after deduction of all costs
generate positive cash flows from their ongoing management.

"Our strategy has been proven successfully already in business year 2013,
as evidenced by the preliminary results of ADLER Group", comments CEO Axel
Harloff. According to these preliminary figures, which have been disclosed
last Tuesday, ADLER's consolidated earnings according to IFRS increased to
EUR 46.9 million (previous year: EUR 0.5 million). The significant rise in
earnings mainly results from revaluations of the acquired shares in
residential real estate portfolios according to IFRS standards such as from
disposals of several properties and shareholdings.

"Currently we are evaluating our entry into further portfolios, primarily
consisting of residential properties, for further growth of our operating
business such as the available financing opportunities. In addition to
ordinary bank loans we are furthermore evaluation the possibilities for
issuing another corporate bond. We are expecting strong growth perspectives
for ADLER Real Estate for residential real estate and focused our strategy
on this area", Mr. Harloff continues.

Over the past year and at the start of the current year ADLER acquired
majority participations at residential real estate portfolios of altogether
more than 10,000 units. These acquisitions were partially financed by a
five-year corporate bond with a volume of originally EUR 20 million and
after an increase EUR 35 million.
