Eurocastle Announces Real Estate Transaction with Deutsche Bank

    London (ots/PRNewswire) - Eurocastle Investment Limited (LSE: ECT), an investment company managed by Fortress Investment Group LLC, today announced the acquisition of a portfolio of 109 properties from Deutsche Bank AG for approximately Euro 300 million. The properties predominately consist of office buildings and are largely occupied by Deutsche Bank. The bank will continue to occupy most of their current space on a medium to long-term basis.

    The properties, totaling 300,000 square meters of leasable space, are located in 90 cities and towns throughout Germany.

Edens, Eurocastle's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are excited to complete this sale leaseback transaction with Deutsche Bank, one of the leading financial service companies in the world. This investment opportunity allows us to fully deploy the capital we raised in our IPO and generate attractive risk adjusted returns for our shareholders."
