Zurich, 4 April 2017 - Peach Property Group AG has resolved to perform a capital
increase to reinforce its institutional investor base and to finance the further
expansion of the Group. 422,554 new registered shares of Peach Property Group AG
will be issued from the authorised capital, each with a nominal value of CHF
1.00, while excluding shareholders' subscription rights, as part of a private
placement. The issue price corresponds to the volume-weighted average of Peach
Property Group AG's share price in the past 60 trading days.

All of the 422,554 new registered shares have been subscribed by Kreissparkasse
Biberach. The gross proceeds from the issue totals CHF 6.9 million. Peach
Property Group AG's General Meeting in May 2015 resolved to create authorised
capital in the amount of 2,000,000 shares. The company is planning to issue
these shares from this authorised capital; the other shares from the authorised
capital will expire on 8 May 2017. The funds from the capital increase are to be
used to further expand the portfolio of residential properties, focusing on
B-locations in Germany. The Group was able to increase its portfolio of
residential properties by more than one third to 4,243 units at the start of
March 2017, thus increasing its annualized target rental income to CHF around 22
million.

Kreissparkasse Biberach will acquire an interest of 7.8% in Peach Property Group
AG and thus become the company's second largest shareholder after its CEO Dr.
Thomas Wolfensberger. Kreissparkasse Biberach plans to hold a long-term interest
in Peach Property Group AG as part of its investment strategy.

This placement increases Peach Property Group AG's share capital from CHF
4,991,923 to CHF 5,414,477. This corresponds to an increase in the previous
share capital of around 8.5%. The first day of trading of new shares on SIX
Swiss Exchange is 7 April 2017.

Dr. Thomas Wolfsberger, Peach Property Group's CEO, commented: "Acquiring
Kreissparkasse Biberach as an anchor investor is a key milestone for our
company, and we are very proud of this. This investment anchors our company even
more strongly in the institutional investor segment, and highlights our profile
as a residential property owner. We will use the funds accruing to our company
from this transaction to acquire residential properties in Germany and to thus
accelerate our further growth."
