DEMIRE acquires Kurfürstengalerie in Kassel 

Frankfurt/Main, 9 July 2015 - Today, the Executive Board of DEMIRE Deutsche
Mittelstand Real Estate AG ("DEMIRE", ISIN DE000A0XFSF0) concluded a
contract to purchase a 94.9% interest in Kurfürster Galerie GmbH, the owner
of the Kurfürsten Galerie in Kassel. The retail property, located directly
across from the "City-Point Kassel Einkaufszentrums" in the centre of
Hesse's third largest city, has a total rental space of approximately
21,000 m². The property includes the largest parking garage in the northern
inner city of Kassel with approximately 600 parking spaces. The commercial
property, which was Kassel's first shopping centre in 1991, has a net rent,
excluding utilities, of around EUR 3.9 million. DEMIRE aims to reduce the
current vacancy rate of 6% by carrying out investments. The tenants include
a hotel, casino, retail and office space as well as doctors' practices. By
acquiring the GmbH, DEMIRE also intends to assume the existing long-term
loans at attractive interest conditions, which are below DEMIRE's average
refinancing costs. With this transaction, DEMIRE will acquire its first
retail project and thus extend the focus of its overall portfolio to
include a third asset class next to office and logistics properties. In
addition, DEMIRE gains access to a management unit specialised in centre
management. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price or any
additional details. The closing of the contract is subject to the consent
of DEMIRE's Supervisory Board and the approval of the bank financing
Kurfürster Immobilien GmbH, among others.
