Press release

Peach Property Group places hybrid bond with a volume of around CHF 25 million

-Good demand from institutional and private investors

-Trading on the SIX Swiss Exchange to commence on 16 December 2015

-Proceeds to be used for refinancing and further expansion


Zurich, 11 December 2015 - Peach Property Group AG, an investor in the
residential and commercial real estate sectors, today announced that it achieved
an issue volume of around CHF 25 million by issuing a subordinated bond ("hybrid
bond", ISIN CH0305711647). A total of around 25,000 bonds at a face value of EUR
1,000 each were sold by way of a public offer in Switzerland as well as by
private placements with selected European investors.

Herewith the Company has placed the target volume as communicated at beginning
of the subscription period. The Company could not utilise its option to increase
the target volume for the hybrid bond to up to CHF 50 million yet due to timely
and regulatory restrictions occurring shortly before the end of the subscription
period. Investors however have shown interest to which Peach Property Group can
get back at a later point in time.

The hybrid bond has an unlimited term and may be terminated by Peach Property
Group AG no earlier than after three years, i.e. effective 15 December 2018. Up
until that date, the bond will have a coupon of 5.00 percent p.a.; after that,
the annual interest rate will be equivalent to the 3-month LIBOR rate plus 9.25
percent.

Peach Property Group will use the proceeds to refinance its liabilities and to
expand its portfolio of investment properties, primarily in Germany. The Company
will leverage the currently favourable market opportunities in Germany to
increase its focus on investment properties in line with its strategy. The
mid-term goal is to increase the portion of investment properties to 75 percent
of its overall portfolio. Peach Property Group's focus is on attractive and
high-yield properties in the German states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower
Saxony and Hesse.

Dr Thomas Wolfensberger, CEO of Peach Property Group AG, commented: "The volume
achieved with the hybrid bond has met our expectations and gives us additional
financial leeway for repaying our liabilities and for further growth. The placed
volume qualifies as equity under IFRS. Therefore the equity ratio improves as
well."
