Press release

Peach Property Group considers issuing a corporate bond before year end

-Bond to be issued by German Peach subsidiary

-Listing in Entry Standard segment planned

-Funds to be used for repayment of existing 2011/2016 bond as well as further
expansion of German investment portfolio

Zurich/ Cologne, 26 October 2015 - Peach Property Group AG, an investor in
residential and commercial real estate, today announced that it is considering
issuing a new corporate bond before the end of the year, depending on the
capital market environment. Its German subsidiary, Peach Property Group
(Deutschland) AG, would act as the issuer. The Swiss parent company, Peach
Property Group AG, would fully guarantee this bond and the payment obligations
arising from it. Peach Property Group aims to market the bond by way of a public
offer in Germany and Luxembourg as well as by private placements with
institutional investors. The issuing prospectus is expected to be approved today
by the financial supervisory authority in Luxembourg (Commission de Surveillance
du Secteur Financier) and will be available later today on the Company's website
at The plan is to list the bond in the Entry Standard
segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Bankhaus Lampe KG will serve as Sole
Lead Manager of the transaction.

Peach Property Group intends to use the planned proceeds to refinance its
existing 2011/2016 bond (ISIN DE000A1KQ8K4), which was issued by Peach Property
Group (Deutschland) AG in July 2011 and has an outstanding volume of EUR 46
million. The issue proceeds shall further be used for expanding the Group's
investment portfolio by adding high-yield properties in Germany, thus further
boosting current revenue through rental income. In the recent months, the Group
has advanced its strategy of strengthening its focus on investment properties by
making several acquisitions, thus further increasing rental income.

Cologne-based Peach Property Group (Deutschland) AG and its subsidiaries
primarily own residential properties as well as selected retail and office
properties in Germany located in medium-sized cities ("B" and "C" cities),
mainly in the vicinity of major urban agglomerations. Furthermore, the Group
this year successfully developed "Living 108", a property project comprising of
128 residential units in Berlin-Mitte. Almost all of the units were handed over
in the first half of 2015. However, going forward the Groups's focus will be
solely on investment properties and the further expansion of its investment
portfolio. In the first six months of 2015, Peach Property Group (Deutschland)
AG and its subsidiaries generated earnings after taxes of approx. EUR 7.4
million, clearly surpassing the profit of EUR 0.35 million recorded in the
prior-year period. Equity almost doubled compared with the end of 2014, reaching
EUR 15.5 million as of 30 June 2015.

The Swiss ultimate parent company, Peach Property Group AG, which will act as
guarantor of the corporate bond, is a property investor focused on residential
properties in Germany and Switzerland. The Peach Property Groups's business
emphasizes investment properties, which in terms of value comprise more than 60
percent of the total portfolio. The investment properties in Germany are
indirectly held through the 100% subsidiary Peach Property Group (Deutschland)
AG. The Group also owns investment properties around Zurich. The second pillar
of Peach Property Group's business is the development of properties with
up-market specifications and amenities in prime locations, which provides the
Group with a steady cash flow coupled with attractive yields. The plan is to
expand the share of investment properties continually to at least 75 percent in
the long term.

Bernd Hasse, Managing Director Germany of Peach Property Group, said: "Our
company has made great strides and has evolved into a successful holder of
investment properties. While we want to use the funds generated by the planned
bond primarily for repaying the existing bond, we also plan to acquire
additional attractive, mainly residential properties in Germany. In doing so, we
will focus first and foremost on high-yield properties in B- and C-cities near
major population centres."

Dr Thomas Wolfensberger, CEO of Peach Property Group, commented: "We are
confident as regards the potential of our German subsidiary and therefore
willing to fully guarantee another bond. This guarantee is based on a solid
foundation: as of the end of the first half of 2015, our property portfolio had
a market value of around CHF 335 million. We are profitable and generated a
profit of around CHF 3.4 million in the first six months of 2015. Our equity
ratio at market value is a solid 27.3 percent and our NAV at market value per
share is CHF 20.37."
