DEMIRE AG: 2016 Annual General Meeting

- All proposed resolutions approved with a clear majority

- All Supervisory Board members were re-elected

- Prof. Dr. Hermann Wagner continues to serve as Supervisory Board Chairman

- Process initiated for upcoming switch to Prime Standard segment

Frankfurt/Main, July 5, 2016 - Shareholders approved the resolutions proposed at the Annual General Meeting of DEMIRE Deutsche Mittelstand Real Estate AG on June 30, 2016, with a clear majority.

The authorised capital and conditional capital were newly created, adjusted for the increase in the share capital. All of the Supervisory Board members were re-elected, and the annual compensation of each member was set to EUR 30,000.00 with the commencement of the 2017 financial year. In the constituent meeting following the Annual General Meeting, Prof. Dr. Wagner was re-elected as chairman of the Supervisory Board and Dr. Peter Maser was re-elected as deputy chairman.

In his comments on the Executive Board's report, Hon.-Prof. Andreas Steyer, CEO of the DEMIRE Group, stated: "Following the strong growth experienced in the past two years, the DEMIRE Group's larger size and enhanced equity position will help us to refinance our high-yield financial liabilities at significantly lower interest rates in order to strengthen our operating result".

In order to increase the Company's capital market visibility, DEMIRE will switch to the Prime Standard segment as early as this month (July 2016). The Prime Standard is the segment with the most stringent transparency requirements.

About DEMIRE - First in secondary locations

DEMIRE Deutsche Mittelstand Real Estate AG has commercial real estate holdings in mid-sized cities and up and coming areas bordering German metropolitan areas. As at March 31, 2016, DEMIRE held real estate consisting of 180 properties with a market value of EUR 971 million. As at the reporting date, contractual rents had been firmly agreed upon in the amount of EUR 74.2 million (at an occupancy rate of 87.0 %) for a term of 5.5 years.

DEMIRE aims to maintain its corporate organisation as lean as possible, although it still believes that economies of scale and portfolio optimisation are best achieved by having its own in-house asset, property and facility management. This safeguards the Company's business expertise and, equally important, allows the Company to maintain direct contact with the customer.

The shares of DEMIRE Deutsche Mittelstand Real Estate AG are listed on the regulated market (General Standard Segment) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
