Vienna, 2 August 2010. After the end of the first acceptance period for the voluntary takeover offer by conwert Immobilien Invest SE on 30 July at 17:00 local time in Vienna, conwert confirmed in an ad hoc press release that the offer was accepted by the holders of 21,236,065 ECO shares, i.e. approx. 62.3% of all ECO shares admitted for trading on the Vienna Stock Exchange that were not owned by the bidder or by a party acting in concert with the bidder at the time of the takeover offer. The required acceptance threshold of 50% plus one share has therefore been reached. Taking into account the ECO shares that conwert held prior to the takeover offer, conwert now owns 29,726,965 ECO shares (roughly 87.2% of share capital).

The acceptance period will now be extended for a further three months in accordance with § 19 (3) of the Austrian Takeover Act, ending 3 November 2010, 17:00 local time in Vienna. During this time the remaining shareholders can decide to accept the offer and file a declaration of acceptance with their depository bank.

conwert has received the approval of the Austrian and German cartel authorities for the planned takeover of ECO Business-Immobilien AG. A key condition precedent of the purchase agreement has consequently been fulfilled.
