DIC Asset AG has now sold a retail property situated in a top location in
the centre of Flensburg for some EUR 29 million to an international
institutional investor. The group of buildings, which has a let-table area
of some 7,000 sqm, is nearly fully let. The transaction was brokered by
Jones Lang LaSalle. DIC Asset acquired the property in 2007 with the
purchase of a portfolio.

With the sale of this property, DIC has realised EUR 107 million from
property transactions since the beginning of the year. In total it has sold
25 properties offering lettable space of 56,000 sqm since the start of
2010. As a result, it has already significantly exceeded its transaction
target, which was set in August 2010, of at least EUR 80 million. At the
end of the first half of 2010, sales stood at EUR 36 million.

Ulrich Höller, CEO of DIC Asset AG: 'This deal is a further indication of
the significant firming in the investment market since the middle of the
year. Following the small-volume sales of the last two years, which were
forced upon us by the crisis, larger-scale transactions on reasonable terms
are now possible once more.'
