DGAP-Adhoc: Peach Property Group AG announces profit for 2013

 DGAP-Adhoc: Peach Property Group AG announces profit for 2013   Peach Property Group AG   / Key word(s): Final Results  28.02.2014 18:19  Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 KR ---------------------------------------------------------------------------  Press release   Peach Property Group AG announces profit for 2013   Zurich, 28 February 2014 - Peach Property Group AG, a leading property investor and developer of high-quality residential real estate in the German-speaking region of Europe, today announced that, contrary to original estimates, it expects to have recorded a profit in the 2013 financial year. Despite one-off extraordinary charges amounting to more than CHF 13 million, earnings before taxes will be just under CHF 2.9 million, which is more than in the previous year when the company posted earnings before taxes of CHF 1.9 million. This means that earnings will surpass expectations and the preliminary figures announced on 31 January 2014.  The Company today has a different view on a planned portfolio transaction and hence maintains the balance sheet structure of its property assets unchanged from the previous year - a decision that was taken in close coordination with its auditors. In addition to facilitating comparability with the previous year, this has the effect that earnings are higher than originally estimated. All other income and expense items remain unaffected by this and have not changed significantly compared with the previously announced figures.  Peach Property Group AG will publish final figures for the 2013 financial year and further details regarding its annual result on 13 March 2014 and provide additional explanations during a media conference in Zurich on that date.
