Deutsche EuroShop: First half of 2014 solid and on track

  - Revenue: EUR99.7 million (+12%), EBIT: EUR88.3 million (+14%)

  - EBT: EUR57.4 million (+24%)

  - Consolidated profit: EUR46.3 million (+23%)

  - FFO: EUR1.09 per share (+16%)

Hamburg, 12 August 2014 - After generating EUR99.7 million in revenue
(previous year: EUR88.8 million) and an EBIT of EUR88.3 million (EUR77.2
million) during the first six months of 2014, the shopping center investor
Deutsche EuroShop is right on track to fulfilling its forecast for the year
as a whole.

Claus-Matthias Böge, Executive Board Spokesman of Deutsche EuroShop,
explains: "The considerable increases can largely be attributed to the
Altmarkt-Galerie Dresden, which we began to fully consolidate in May 2013
after increasing our shareholding to 100 percent."

Consolidated profit experienced an increase year-on-year of just around 23%
to EUR46.3 million. Correspondingly, earnings per share rose to EUR0.86 and
EPRA earnings per share adjusted for valuation effects were 19% higher at
EUR0.91. Funds from operations (FFO) improved by 16% from EUR0.94 to
EUR1.09 per share.

Deutsche EuroShop is standing its forecast and envisages paying a dividend
of EUR1.30 per share for financial year 2014.
