Subtitle: Purchase of a land plot of around 9,000 m² in Potsdam / Creation of
388 student apartments directly next to campus

Frankfurt am Main (euro adhoc) - YOUNIQ AG, the leading provider of high-quality
student apartments in Germany, has acquired an undeveloped plot of land of
around 9,000 m² in Potsdam along with planning permission. A total of 388 new
apartments with around 7,760 m² of rentable space are to be created in the
Kiepenheuerallee directly next to the campus, entailing EUR 26 million of
investment volume.

The project is due to be completed and rented prospectively by 2013. The
apartments, which comprise 20 m² on average, are fully furnished, and are to be
rented on an all-inclusive basis, in other words, including all incidental costs
such as Internet and cable connection. Along with its favourable location, the
site also stands out due to its direct street tram link to the city centre.
YOUNIQ AG is increasing the number of apartments that it manages or is in the
process of creating to a total of 2,841 units as a result of this new project in

Potsdam is one of Germany's most attractive cities for student living according
to a survey conducted by Savills. More than 23,000 students are currently
enrolled at the University of Potsdam and at the University of Applied Sciences
Potsdam. The number of students grew by 28% over the last eight years. Since the
"Studentenwerke" (semi-governmental providers of student services) currently
meet only around 9.5% of demand for student accommodation, Rainer Nonnengässer,
the CEO of YOUNIQ AG, believes there is attractive potential scope here:
"Potsdam offers us ideal conditions to successfully implement our YOUNIQ
concept. As a result of securing this acquisition, we are now already present at
ten locations in Germany. We are optimistic that we will further extend our
leading market position with even more purchases over the coming weeks."
