Berlin, 3 April 2019 - ADLER Real Estate AG ("ADLER") today successfully placed EUR 400 million fixed rate senior unsecured notes (the "Notes") with a 3-year maturity and a 1.5% fixed coupon. The Notes were placed with institutional investors across Europe with the new issue order book at pricing being more than 4 times oversubscribed.
The proceeds of the issue of the Notes will be used to refinance the outstanding EUR 300 million 4.75% 2020 notes which are callable at par from April 2019, as well as the refinancing of other debt.
ADLER has a corporate rating of BB (stable) with S&P. The Notes are expected to be rated BB+ with S&P, driven by the strong recovery rating of the bonds, and reflecting ADLER's valuable asset base.
"The successful placement will allow us to reduce our interest payment by c. EUR 12 million over the next rolling 12 months adding to our FFO, and significantly improving our ICR, a key metric for our expected positive re-rating in 2019.", comments Tomas de Vargas Machuca, Co-CEO of ADLER.
"Our WACD will improve and we are already able, on a see-through basis to meet our Guidance target of below 2.1 percent.", comments Maximilian Rienecker, Co-CEO of ADLER.
The Notes have a denomination of EUR 100,000 each and will be listed at the regulated market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. J.P. Morgan acted as Sole Global Coordinator and J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley acted as Active Bookrunners on the transaction in addition to Unicredit as Passive Bookrunner.

The offer referred to herein when made in member states of the European Economic Area ("EEA") which have implemented the Prospectus Directive (each, a "relevant member state"), is only addressed to and directed at persons who are "qualified investors" as defined in the Prospectus Directive ("Qualified Investors"). For these purposes, the expression "Prospectus Directive" means Directive 2003/71/EC (and amendments thereto, including the 2010 PD Amending Directive, to the extent implemented in a relevant member state), and includes any relevant implementing measure in the relevant member state and the expression "2010 PD Amending Directive" means Directive 2010/73/EU.
Solely for the purposes of each manufacturer's product approval process, the target market assessment in respect of the Notes has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market for the Notes is eligible counterparties and professional clients only, each as defined in Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, "MiFID II"); and (ii) all channels for distribution of the Notes to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate.
The Notes are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the EEA. For these purposes, a "Retail Investor" means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of MIFID II; (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive 2002/92/EC ("IMD"), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of article 4(1) of MIFID II; or (iii) not a Qualified Investor as defined in the Prospectus Directive. Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (the "PRIIPs Regulation") for offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.
