annual report/annual result

Subtitle: • Consolidated net income up 109% year-on-year to EUR 4.6 million 
(previous year: EUR 2.2 million) 
• Funds from operations (FFO) recorded at EUR 5.5 million (previous year: 
EUR 5.8 million)

München (euro adhoc) - March 29, 2012 - According to its final figures, Fair
Value REIT-AG achieved total revenue of EUR 13.3 million for the financial year
2011 (previous year: EUR 14.4 million). Net rental income for the Group came in
at EUR 8.8 million (previous year: EUR 9.5 million). The operating result (EBIT)
rose by around EUR 3.8 million to EUR 6.7 million and was therefore around 130%
up on the previous year figure of EUR 2.9 million. This rise in earnings is
attributable to the considerably improved valuation result year-on-year for the
Group's real estate portfolio.

Income from participations at associated companies came in at EUR 3.3 million,
around EUR 0.6 million down on the previous year figure of EUR 3.9 million. This
was due to the valuation loss on the real estate at these companies, which came
on the back of write-downs on some buildings with soon-to-expire lease
agreements. 

During the reporting period, the company was able to substantially boost its
consolidated net income by 109% to EUR 4.6 million (previous year: EUR 2.2
million). Earnings per share were up EUR 0.25 per share to EUR 0.49 per share,
compared with EUR 0.24 in the previous year. 

Consolidated net income adjusted for changes in market value and other one-off
effects (in accordance with EPRA), which is also funds from operations (FFO),
totalled EUR 5.5 million or 
EUR 0.59 per share. This was in line with the full-year forecast revised upwards
in November 2011, with only slight rounding differences. The minor fall in EPRA
earnings (FFO) compared to the previous year figure of EUR 5.8 million came on
the back of the disposal real estate, individual renewal agreements at lower
market rents as well as the premature release from a lease agreement following
the receipt of a compensation payment.

On the balance sheet date, consolidated equity came in at EUR 77.5 million
(December 31, 2010: 
EUR 74.6 million). As a result, the balance sheet net asset value increased by
4% from EUR 8.00 to EUR 8.31 per share in circulation. Taking into consideration
the minority interests in subsidiaries, the equity ratio pursuant to § 15 of the
REIT Act rose to 51.0% of immovable assets (December 31, 2010: 49.6%). 

Retained earnings reported in the non-consolidated financial statements of Fair
Value REIT-AG under the German Commercial Code (HGB) reached EUR 0.8 million
(previous year: EUR 1.0 million). This fall was due to income from
participations falling short of expectations during the financial year 2011. The
Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose a dividend payment of EUR
0.08 per share for 2011 at the Annual General Meeting on May 14, 2012. This
represents a pay-out ratio of 97.6% of retained earnings.

Frank Schaich, CEO of Fair Value REIT-AG, commented on the Group's business
development: "Since Fair Value REIT-AG went public in 2007, we have been able to
report stable operating earnings every year. Constantly high occupancy rates of
around 95%, a solid equity base averaging 50% of our real estate portfolio,
falling interest expenses for variable interest loans as well as high repayment
volumes were and remain the basis for our stability even in uncertain times."

FFO of EUR 4.8 million or EUR 0.52 per share is anticipated for 2012, with
forecasts suggesting an adjusted consolidated net income figure of EUR 5.8
million or EUR 0.62 per share for Fair Value in 2013. Based on the five-year
forecast published for the first time this year, the Management Board
anticipates FFO growth rates averaging 10% p.a. for the current real estate
portfolio in the years 2014 to 2016.

"The forecast increases in FFO results from 2013 are largely due to falling
interest expenses. In 2012 and 2013, around 62% of the Group's financial
liabilities are due for renegotiating interest conditions, and this figure is
around 75% at the associated companies. Given the current historically low
interest rate levels, we are anticipating substantial potential savings despite
generally increasing bank margins," continued Schaich.

With respect to the non-consolidated financial statements of Fair Value REIT-AG
under the German Commercial Code, the forecast for net income from operating
activities from 2013 onwards would allow a dividend payment of at least EUR 0.10
per share in the years ahead. With regard to 2012, not yet secured income of EUR
0.9 million, including cost cutting measures, is required for a dividend
distribution on this level, however the Management Board believes that this can
be achieved.
