Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.
The SDAX-listed real estate company DIC Asset AG (WKN 509840 / ISIN DE0005098404) has decided in principle to issue a five-year corporate bond with a volume of up to EUR 100 million. The debt securities are intended for private and institutional investors in Germany and Austria within the framework of a public offer. It is set to be available for subscription from early May 2011 onwards in denominations of EUR 1,000. The company is planning to admit the bond in the Segment Entry Standard for bonds of Deutsche Börse AG.
DIC Asset AG is therefore the first listed real estate company in Germany to offer such a large-volume corporate bond to the capital market. Issuing a corporate bond also gives the company an additional flexible and attractive option for debt financing in addition to the classic mortgage loan.
Further details about the bond are expected to be announced in late April 2011. The prospectus necessary for the public offer is also set to be published in late April 2011 on the website of DIC Asset AG. The company has commissioned Berenberg Bank as the global coordinator and bookrunner for placing the bond.

The prospectus will be available for download on the website of the company (www.dic-asset.de/investor-relations), and on the website of Deutsche Börse AG. This securities prospectus will be the exclusive controlling document for purposes of the proposed offer and will contain the information legally required to be provided to investors. Printed copies of the prospectus will also be available from the company.
