Investment properties in Winterthur-Neuhegi sold to Intershop - Implenia
focuses on development property in line with strategy | Projects in Neuhegi
and on the Sulzer site well underway

Dietlikon, 20 December 2012 - Implenia is selling its investment properties in
Winterthur-Neuhegi to real estate company Intershop. The package includes a
137,000 square metre plot of land in the industrial zone, as well as several
offices and industrial buildings totalling 50,000 square metres. The
investment properties are part of the portfolio that Implenia acquired when it
bought Sulzer Immobilien AG in 2010. This brings a successful conclusion to a
process in which Implenia has sold several investment properties not in line
with its strategy.

By doing this, Implenia is rigorously putting into practice the strategy for
Winterthur that it announced right at the start - one that allows the company
to focus more strongly on its core competence of project development in the
future. Implenia is currently contributing to the sustainable development of
Neuhegi through several residential and commercial property projects,
including the "roy" housing development. On the Sulzer site ("Sulzerareal") in
the middle of town, the development plan for "Werk1" is well under way. The
new ZHAW library being created in the former City Hall will form the heart of
the future "Education Mile" on the site. Implenia is pleased to be
contributing to the sustainable development of Winterthur with these projects
