ECO Business-Immobilien AG completes capital increase

Vienna, June 29, 2007.  ECO Business-Immobilien AG (Vienna Stock Exchange/Prime Market: ECO, Reuters: EBIV.VI, Bloomberg: ECO AV) has completed its capital increase and placed a total volume of 9.1 million new shares despite a difficult capital market environment for real estate companies. The subscription and offer price was set at EUR 11.00 per new share.

The company will use the gross proceeds of EUR 100.1 million from the capital increase as an equity basis for further expansion. ECO intends to invest in the most attractive real estate projects from the opportunities it had identified in its core markets, Austria and Germany, and the CEE region. On the basis of its usual financing structure, ECO expects to be in a position to expand its real estate portfolio to approximately EUR 1 billion in the near future.

The new shares were placed primarily with existing retail and institutional investors, partly through the exercise of their subscription rights and partly through an increase in their shareholdings.

conwert Immobilien Invest AG is expected to increase its stake in ECO from less than 20% to up to 25% in the capital increase.  In addition, ECO Management GmbH will acquire approximately 800,000 shares of ECO in the capital increase.

The first day of trading in the new shares is expected to be July 2, 2007 and closing/settlement is expected to take place on July 3, 2007. After registration of the capital increase in the commercial register, ECO will have increased its nominal share capital from EUR 250 million to EUR 341 million. After the capital increase, the total number of shares will be 34.1 million shares.

Merrill Lynch International, Erste Bank der oesterreichischen Sparkassen AG and Wiener Privatbank Immobilieninvest AG acted as Joint Bookrunners in the offering.
