Press release

Peach Property Group expands portfolio by 397 apartments to just over 1,900
apartments

-Purchase agreement for a real estate company in North Rhine-Westphalia
notarised

-Number of apartments in the portfolio increases to over 1,900

-Annual rental income to rise by around CHF 2.6 million

-Closing of the transaction expected by April 2016

Zurich, 8 March 2016 - Peach Property Group, an investor in residential real
estate, today announced a further expansion of its investment portfolio. The
respective purchase agreement for the acquisition of a real estate company was
notarised yesterday. Peach Property Group thus acquires a portfolio of around 30
buildings with 397 residential and 36 commercial units in Düsseldorf and the
surrounding area. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The
closing of the transaction is expected to take place no later than April 2016.

The acquisition will rise the number of apartments in Peach Property Group's
portfolio to over 1,900 units. The lettable residential floor area increases by
roughly 24.000 square metres to a total of close to 130.000 square metres. After
the recent sales, rent from residential properties now accounts for more than 80
percent of Peach Property Group's overall rental income. The acquisition
increases annual rental income by around CHF 2.6 million (EUR 2.4 million).
Overall, the annual target rent thus remains at more than CHF 10 million despite
the recently announced sales of the Gretag site and the Erkrath Retail property.

Peach Property Group intends to increase the current occupancy rate of 86
percent in the short term through active asset management and specific
investments in the properties. The properties require only minor modernisation
work because the buildings are in good structural condition.

Dr. Thomas Wolfensberger, CEO of Peach Property Group, comments: "The
acquisition has enabled us to further expand our residential portfolio in
Germany by adding properties that provide an attractive yield. We also see
interesting value enhancing opportunities through active asset management. We
firmly believe in the locations of the new portfolio. Additionally the
acquisition will further rise our profile as a holder of residential property
with a focus on Germany."
