Zurich, 15 March 2017 - Peach Property Group has increased its real estate
portfolio by more than one third to a total of 4,243 residential units by
acquiring 1,114 apartments in North Rhine-Westphalia. The rentable residential
space in the group's entire real estate portfolio has thus increased by around
73,000 square meters to approx. 283,500 square meters. Annual target rental
income for Peach Property Group has increased by CHF 5.7 million to CHF 22
million as a result of the purchase. The corresponding purchase agreement was
certified by the notary yesterday, and closing is scheduled for the first half
of 2017. The properties are being sold by a major German real estate company; it
has been agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The new portfolio, which also includes 679 parking bays, is mostly located in
the district Alt-Oberhausen of Oberhausen, close to Essen and Düsseldorf. 47
apartments are located in nearby Duisburg. The buildings are in excellent
condition, which means that no major renovation work is required. Around 95
percent of the units have been let and the portfolio currently generates annual
rent of CHF 5.4 million (EUR 5.0 million).

The new portfolio includes the largest connected group of so-called
"Zechenhäuser" (renovated, former colliery houses) available for rent in the
Ruhr region. These account for around 40 percent of the annual basic net rent in
the new portfolio. The colliery houses are very popular with tenants as they
have single-family house character with large gardens. The vacancy rate is
correspondingly low for these 385 residential units at just 1.9 percent.

This portfolio which Peach Property Group is now acquiring also includes 100
apartments suitable for old-age residences, for which Caritas offers support for
the residents. The portfolio also includes several multi-family dwellings, which
mostly stem from Germany's "Gründerzeit" and also offer attractive residential
space. The majority of these properties were renovated at the end of the 1980s
and at the start of the 1990s.

Oberhausen is migrating from an industrial to a service location. Shopping and
leisure facilities represent important elements of the economy. The CentrO in
Oberhausen, for example, is one of Europe's largest shopping and leisure centers
with more than 830,000 square meters of operating space and 220 shops. There are
also a number of tourist attractions in Oberhausen, such as the Legoland
Discovery Center, the Sea-Life Aquarium, the König Pilsner Arena or the Metronom
Theater. At the end of 2016, more than 212,000 people were living in Oberhausen.

Dr. Thomas Wolfensberger, Peach Property Group's CEO, commented: "We are
re-dimensioning thanks to this purchase, and have grown our real estate
portfolio to around 4,250 units. This means that we are a major step closer to
our goal of reaching around 5,000 apartments over the short to medium term.
Thanks to our active asset management which clearly focuses on tenants, we also
want to grow the value of these new apartments, further reduce vacancies and
increase rental income. The acquisition of this portfolio has already increased
our current rental income by almost 40 percent, and target rental has increased
by around one third per year."
