DIC Asset AG realizes Income of c. EUR 43.9 mn from Sale of 8% Stake in TLG Immobilien AG – Proceeds to be Invested in the Company’s Own Business

(Frankfurt, 29.04.2019)

DIC Asset AG, one of Germany's leading listed property companies, sold most of its equity interest in TLG Immobilien AG by transferring a stake of 8% to the Bedrock group. The sale that was already contractually agreed upon in December 2018 results in an income of c. EUR 43.9 million. The proceeds amounting to EUR 214.8 million will be reinvested into the company's own growth. Previously, in March 2019, DIC had reported the execution of the sale of a 6% stake of the stock to Ouram Holding S. à. r. l.

The income resulting from the transaction with Bedrock is directly recognised in net retained profits without having any effect on the income statement. Out of the total, c. EUR 36.1 million were already recognised in the reserves as of 31 December 2018. The execution of the transaction raises the shareholders' equity of DIC Asset AG as of the transaction date by another EUR 6.9 million compared to the year-end total.

"Today, we are pleased to report that the disposal of our equity stake in TLG Immobilien AG announced in December was successfully concluded, generating c. EUR 376 million in total proceeds for DIC Asset AG. We intend to invest this money in our own business and to keep pursuing the growth path we chose to follow," said Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG, as she commented on the transaction.
