companies/Preliminary figures

Cologne (euro adhoc) - 23 March 2009 - InCity Immobilien AG, a group of companies specialised in planning and realising high-quality properties in central urban locations, has published today its preliminary figures for the financial year 2008. The results in accordance with IFRS underline the company's sustainable business model, even in a market environment which has significantly deteriorated.

In the financial year 2008, InCity Group achieved sales of EUR 60.2 million, an increase of 12.7% compared to the previous year (EUR 53.4 million in 2007). The operating result (EBIT) went up by 24.7% to EUR 9.1 million from EUR 7.3 million in 2007. Annual net profit came to EUR 5.1 million, exceeding the previous year's amount by 70.0% (EUR 3.0 million in 2007). The total operating performance of the group - the sum of sales and changes in inventory for work and services in progress - amounted to EUR 77.8 million in 2008, increasing by 15.4%.

Given increased financing costs in the third and fourth quarter and enhanced risk management, Managing Board member André Peto is satisfied with the results: "Our positive development in 2008 confirms that we are on the right track with our company policy. On the one hand, focussing exclusively on properties in top locations has proven to be an approach insulated against times of crisis, while on the other, the targeted expansion of our product portfolio for retail properties has enabled us to improve our flexibility. We are now able to increasingly exploit our core competencies, allowing us to take advantage of opportunities in the market." André Peto is also confident about 2009: "Given our extensive project pipeline and the substantially declining short-term interest rates since the beginning of the year we expect a further improvement of our performance."

The final figures for the financial year 2008 will be published at the beginning of April on the company's website www.incity.ag.
