Changes to conwert´s Administrative Board: Chairman Günter Kerbler resigns his mandate

Vienna, September 30, 2010. conwert Immobilien Invest SE announced today that Günter Kerbler, Chairman of the Administrative Board, will leave the Administrative Board effective at the end of the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on October 11, 2010. Günter Kerbler is resigning his position on the Administrative Board for personal reasons and of his own accord. However, Günter Kerbler will continue to be available to serve the company in an advisory capacity. The real estate and finance expert Franz Pruckner and Johannes Meran have been nominated as candidates for election to the Administrative Board.

"A company such as conwert which has so successfully overcome the turbulences affecting the business world in the last two years is well managed and rightly positioned on the marketplace", said Administrative Board Chairman Günter Kerbler. "We have continually increased our clout to meet the challenges of the future. Today conwert features a strong management team and high caliber employees, an absolutely top-notch real estate portfolio, which will enable a further rise in earnings and value enhancement as well as a core shareholder supporting the implementation of our growth strategy. It was not an easy decision at all for me. However, after 30 years of work helping to build the foundations for the company´s success, I believe it is now time to resign my position on the Administrative Board with a clear conscience towards all shareholders. I always planned to retire from all management and supervisory functions in the company at the age of 55. I have full confidence in the ability of my current colleagues on the Administrative Board and those who have to be elected to successfully shape the future of conwert. I am pleased to have the opportunity to serve as a consultant for individual projects should the need arise", he added. Günter Kerbler will continue to be an indirect shareholder in conwert by means of his investment in the consortium led by Petrus Advisers. "I am looking forward to the new era and a good cooperation", Günter Kerbler concluded.

The Administrative Board and Executive Board regretfully accepted the resignation of Günter Kerbler. CEO Johann Kowar said: "We would like to thank sincerely Günter Kerbler for his longstanding and extremely successfully work as a member of the Executive Board, Member of the Supervisory Board and Chairman of the Administrative Board. Under his leadership, the company succeeded in making the transformation to an international and modern residential property group which is optimally prepared for the future".

Johannes Meran and Franz Pruckner have been nominated as candidates for election to the Administrative Board at the Extraordinary General Meeting scheduled for October 11, 2010. Johannes Meran is a founding partner of Petrus Advisers LLP. Franz Pruckner is Chairman of the Management Board of the bank Sparkasse Waldviertel-Mitte Bank AG.
