Vienna and Warsaw, 24 January 2007

Warimpex Finanz- und Beteiligungs AG priced its Initial Public Offering  today. The shares will be listed and traded on the Vienna and Warsaw  Stock  Exchanges, the offer price having been  set  at EUR  11.00  (PLN  42.83)  per  share.  The offering of 10 million shares - (including greenshoe) - was significantly  over- subscribed, with both strong retail and institutional demand from  investors  in Austria  and  Poland  as  well  as  institutional  demand throughout    Europe. Approximately 33 percent of the offering was placed in Poland. The issued  share capital following the IPO will be 36 million shares, corresponding to  a  market capitalisation of approx. EUR 396 mn. With the exercise of  the  greenshoe,  the free float will be 27.8 %.

Warimpex Finanz- und Beteiligungs AG, headquartered in Vienna, is a real  estate development and investment company with a special focus on hotel  properties  in Central and Eastern Europe. 6 million new shares plus 3 million existing  shares owned by the founding shareholders were offered  to  investors  in  Austria  and Poland through a public offering, and to institutional investors  in  Europe by way of a private placement. The greenshoe comprised a further 1 million  shares. The settlement date for the completion of the offer is 26  January;  trading  on the Prime Market in Vienna is scheduled to start on 26 January and in Warsaw  on 29  January  2007.  Warimpex intends  to  use  the  fresh  influx  of    capital (approximately EUR  58.5  million  net  proceeds)  primarily  to  finance    its continued growth strategy.

The transaction was handled by CA  IB  /  Bank  Austria Creditanstalt  as  lead manager and bookrunner with Raiffeisen Centrobank as co-lead manager.
