The Management Board confirmed the forecast for 2014:

  - continued growth in earnings through further portfolio optimisation and
    the expansion of the fund business (planned fund acquisitions on the
    order of EUR 150 - 200 million).

  - The elevated sales volume of approximately EUR 150 million will play a
    definitive role in the ongoing effort to bring down the loan-to-value
    ratio.

  - The rental income is expected to amount to between EUR 145 million and
    EUR 147 million.
