Capital measures/Company Information

Subtitle: - Issue of up to 3,525,000 new ordinary shares - Gross issue proceeds of up to EUR 31.7 million - Fresh equity to mainly serve financing of potential pipeline in "Student Living" business area - Uplisting into Prime Standard planned for July 2011

Frankfurt am Main (euro adhoc) - Frankfurt am Main, May 9, 2011 - The Management Board of YOUNIQ AG has today launched the investor roadshow for the company's planned capital increase. A total of 3,525,000 new ordinary bearer shares of YOUNIQ AG are to be offered for subscription as part of the public offering. To these are to be added up to 500,000 further shares that are held by the two major shareholders GOETHE INVESTMENTS S.à r.l. and Rabano PROPERTIES S.à r.l. YOUNIQ AG's share capital will increase by 50%, from EUR 7,050,000 to up to EUR 10,575,000, once the new shares have been successfully placed.

As part of a bookbuilding process, the new shares are to be offered to institutional investors in Germany and selected European countries as part of a pre-placing. This is possible because the two major shareholders are refraining from exercising their subscription rights. The pre-placing is to be conducted in the period between May 11, 2011 and May 13, 2011 inclusive. The price range for the bookbuilding is to be published prospectively on May 10, 2011 by way of an ad hoc announcement. The maximum subscription price will be EUR 9 per share. Shareholders comprising the free float - which currently amounts to approximately 2% - can exercise their subscription rights according to the 2:1 subscription ratio within the statutory subscription period between May 19, 2011 and June 3, 2011 inclusive. A successful placing at the upper end of the bookbuilding range would consequently generate gross issue proceeds of up to EUR 31.7 million. These proceeds are to primarily serve the realisation of the possible pipeline of up to 3,500 residential units for students.

Once the new shares and the additional 500,000 secondary shares have been fully placed, the interests of GOETHE INVESTMENTS and Rabano PROPERTIES would reduce from currently around 98.0% to as little as 60.7%. The free float would increase from around 2% to up to 39.4% accordingly.

Rainer Nonnengässer, CEO of YOUNIQ AG, regards the "Student Living" core business, in particular, as being further strengthened as a result of the planned transaction: "We are significantly improving our financing base with the targeted issue proceeds and the restructuring of the shareholder loan. This will allow us to realise our potential pipeline of up to 3,500 residential units across Germany, and to expand our earnings base. At the same time, we are making an important contribution to increasingly establishing the "student accommodation" asset class in Germany."

Once the transaction has been successfully concluded, the company will apply for admission of the shares to trading in the Prime Standard prospectively in July 2011. The securities prospectus for the public offering that has been approved by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) can be downloaded from YOUNIQ AG's website at, within the Investor Relations area.
