Frankfurt am Main., 8 September 2009 - The General Partner of MAGNAT Real
Estate Opportunities GmbH & Co. KGaA ('MAGNAT' or 'Company')
(ISIN:DE000A0XFSF0) has today, with the approval of the Supervisory Board,
taken a decision to internalise asset management, which has hitherto been
dealt with externally by R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH (successor to R-QUADRAT
Immobilien Beratungs GmbH). To that end, a decision was taken on 8
September 2009 to utilise the authorised capital of the Company, currently
amounting to EUR 26,450,000, and increase the share capital from EUR
5,290,000 by EUR 8,604,651 to EUR 13,894,651 by issuing 8,604,651 new
bearer shares with dividend rights as of 1 April 2009 against contributions
in kind. The subscription rights of shareholders have been excluded. The
issue price of the new shares is EUR 3.44 per share, which is the weighted
average shareprice of the last three month according to German takeover law

The contribution in kind is made up of all shares of Metis Holding AG
(renamed in R-QUADRAT Holding AG) Vienna, Austria, whose sole asset is a
77.49% stake in R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH, and Altira ImmoFinanz GmbH,
whose sole asset is a 22.51% stake in R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH.

The competent district court has appointed the well-known Warth & Klein
Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Dusseldorf, as auditor of the capital

R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH, Vienna, Austria, is an asset management company
for real estate projects and real estate-based capital market products.
R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH now operates mainly in Germany, Austria and
Eastern Europe (CEE/CIS). In this respect, the priority countries are the
Ukraine, Turkey, Romania and Poland. R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH's field of
business activity comprises asset management mandates in the real estate
sector. In particular, these mandates encompass the purchase, development
or ongoing management as well as the leasing and sale of real estate on
behalf of investors. R-QUADRAT's assets under management total some EUR 500
million. Its operations are clearly profitable, which means that MAGNAT's
return on investment would be significantly positive.

Furthermore, positive strategic effects are anticipated as a result of
MAGNAT's development into an integrated real estate group. For example,
expansion to asset management for third parties is planned without delay.

The capital increase will be part of a restructuring measure, over which
the shareholders of the Company are to pass various resolutions, including
on the conversion of MAGNAT into a joint stock corporation, at the Annual
General Meeting on 29 October 2009. As a result of this conversion, the
General Partner of MAGNAT, MAGNAT Management GmbH, will resign from its

hitherto external asset management, we are planning a decisive and
consistent step towards growth and additional liquidity as well as a
significant plus in expertise. The basis for rapid and smooth integration
is given as a result of our long-standing partnership with R-QUADRAT. The

optimisation of our corporate structure. It is thus clear that we are
creating the basis for lasting added value for our shareholders.'
