Prime Office AG successfully completes cash capital increase

  - Gross proceeds from new shares sold in connection with the cash capital
    increase amount to about EUR 130.4 million

  - Net proceeds in the amount of EUR 126.8 million will be used to
    strengthen equity capital position and reduce leverage

Cologne, 14 February 2014. Prime Office AG, a leading office property
platform with a focus on German metropolitan regions and conurbations,
successfully completed the capital increase which has the form of cash
contributions (cash capital increase) from the approved capital with
pre-emptive rights for the shareholders of Prime Office AG.

Overall about 46.6 million new shares have been taken up or placed. The
shares offered in the private placement were allocated as well at a price
of EUR 2.80 per share. All new shares from the cash capital increase will
presumably be settled on 18 February 2014 and commence trading on the same
day.

Prime Office AG generated gross proceeds of about EUR 130.4 million from
the new shares sold in connection with the cash capital increase. After
deduction of the commissions of the syndicate banks, which will have to be
paid by the Company, as well as other costs, net proceeds will amount to
approximately EUR 126.8 million. The net proceeds will be used to
strengthen the equity capital position of Prime Office AG and to reduce its
leverage. The net proceeds also serve to cover transaction costs incurred
in connection with the merger.

'We are pleased about the success of our capital increase and the strong
interest the capital market has shown in the new Prime Office,' says
Juergen Overath, board member of Prime Office AG. 'We have now been able to
give the post-merger company a solid equity capital position and an
attractive financing structure from the start,' adds Alexander von Cramm,
board member of Prime Office AG.

Berenberg, Kempen & Co and UBS Investment Bank acted act as Global
Coordinators of the cash capital increase.
