MPC Capital expands student housing platform and launches joint venture
with Sparinvest

Hamburg, 9 July 2014 - MPC Capital has set up a joint venture with the
Danish property investor Sparinvest for which multiple student housing
facilities will be developed in Germany. After the MPC Deutschland 11
retail fund launched in 2011, which invested in four student housing
facilities run by a third-party operator, the Hamburg investment and asset
manager MPC Capital is now establishing its own development and operating

The joint venture will invest in properties at various attractive
university locations in Germany. The property specialists from MPC Capital
will handle the project development and management themselves. Rainer
Nonnengässer, a proven expert for student housing in Germany, is heading
the platform.

MPC Capital discovered the appeal of the market for student housing at an
early stage and in 2011 set up a fund for private investors that invested
in student housing at several locations in Germany. In light of rising
participation in education and growing internationalisation, the forecasts
for long-term development in student figures are positive; around 2.5
million students in Germany are projected for 2025. At the same time, there
is growing demand - which will already exceed supply for some time - for
small-scale living space on account of the trend towards living alone.

"Our concept is built on convenient, efficient and affordable living space
- and therefore satisfies the requirement structure for broad student
groups," explained Rainer Nonnengässer.

 "We are happy to form a student housing platform with Sparinvest, where
both parties are significant investors" said Director of Products and
Sales, Dr. Roman Rocke, of the transaction. "Sparinvest acknowledged our
team's specialisation in this niche sector in which we offer the full value
chain from a single source, from structuring and project development to the
operation and sale of the properties. The investment decision was preceded
by extensive due diligence by Sparinvest."

Sparinvest invests on behalf of their third global fund, Sparinvest
Property Fund III, which has just announced a final close of EUR 317
million in total committed capital from a group of leading pension funds,
foundations and family offices.
