Subtitle: Purchase of a 9,800 m² property in Düsseldorf / Planned construction
of 292 student apartments near to the university and city centre / Investment
volume of around EUR 26 million

Frankfurt am Main (euro adhoc) - July 17, 2012 - YOUNIQ AG is continuing to
pursue its expansion strategy in its core "student housing" business segment
with the acquisition of its first project in the most populous federal state of
North Rhine-Westphalia. A total of 292 student apartments are to be built in
Düsseldorf's Witzelstraße from the start of 2013. The investment volume stands
at around EUR 26 million. Provided the construction work begins and progresses
to schedule, the company anticipates that the project will be completed in time
for the start of the 2014 summer semester. The new project takes the number of
YOUNIQ AG apartments under management or construction to a total of 3,770 units.

The federal state capital Düsseldorf, the second-largest city in North
Rhine-Westphalia in terms of population, enjoys an excellent reputation as a
university location with a high standard of living and quality of life. The
University of Düsseldorf performed outstandingly well in the highly regarded CHE
university rankings last conducted in November 2011, including in the
disciplines of business administration and law. The university obtained top
marks for admission requirements in particular. Around 17,000 students are
currently studying on the campus of the local university. The city centre and
campus are around a kilometre away from the site as the crow flies and the
university hospital can be reached within a few minutes by foot. Local amenities
and public transport are available in the direct vicinity. 

Rainer Nonnengässer, Chief Executive Officer of YOUNIQ AG, was delighted: "We
have been monitoring the highly attractive market in North Rhine-Westphalia for
some time and are therefore extremely pleased to embark upon our first project
in Düsseldorf. Düsseldorf already has a good reputation as a university
location. It is ambitious and will achieve growth over the medium to long term.
The location therefore fits in perfectly with our business strategy."
