conwert sold EUR 200 million of properties at a double-digit profit margin in 2008

Vienna, 22.01.2009. Preliminary figures indicate that conwert Immobilien Invest SE (Vienna Stock Exchange: CWI, Reuters: CONW.VI, Bloomberg: CWI AV) sold properties with a total value of approx. EUR 200 million in 2008. The volume of sales exceeded EUR 90 million in the fourth quarter, despite the effects of the economic slowdown. In addition, settlement procedures are currently in progress for roughly EUR 10 million of transactions. The company has therefore met its targeted transaction volume for 2008 in spite of the difficult climate on property investment markets. During the fourth quarter of 2008 the objects sold again generated a double-digit profit margin on the latest IFRS book values. For 2008 conwert therefore recorded a double-digit IFRS profit margin and a cash profit margin of over 25% based on the acquisition price. conwert has used the proceeds generated by these sales to strengthen liquidity and in part to repay debt. The bank liabilities of EUR 113 million that were due for extension at the end of 2008 were prolonged in full. The volume of loan extensions for 2009 and 2010 amounts to EUR 55 million and EUR 50 million, respectively.
