  - R-QUADRAT companies are to be incorporated in the MAGNAT brand family

  - Commitment to transparency, clear structures and high-performance

Frankfurt am Main, 26.04.2010 - Following the successful integration of
real estate asset manager R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH, the Management of
MAGNAT Real Estate Opportunities GmbH & Co. KGaA ('MAGNAT', ISIN
DE000A0XFSF0) has now decided to standardise the brand strategy. The
R-QUADRAT companies will take on MAGNAT's umbrella brand 'MAGNAT Real
Estate' and align with the name of the MAGNAT brand family.

R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH (Vienna) will in future operate under the new
company name 'MAGNAT Asset Management GmbH'.

R-QUADRAT Immobilien GmbH (Frankfurt) will in future bear the company name
'MAGNAT Asset Management Deutschland GmbH'.

'R-QUADRAT Capital Markets GmbH' (Vienna), which is responsible for
marketing tax relief models, will in future operate under the name 'MAGNAT
Capital Markets GmbH'.

In future, all companies will be integrated under the word/figurative mark
'MAGNAT Real Estate'.

Jan Oliver Rüster, CEO of MAGNAT, comments: 'Integration of R-QUADRAT into
our umbrella brand strategy publicly documents the successful conclusion of
incorporation into the MAGNAT Group. Brand integration is a logical
consequence of our efforts to achieve transparency, clear structures and
Group performance at the highest level.'


MAGNAT Real Estate Opportunities GmbH & Co. KGaA is the first real estate
company with a focus on property development in Eastern European, Austrian
and German metropolitan areas to be listed in Frankfurt.

MAGNAT has evolved into an integrated real estate group. The company covers
the entire value chain - from acquisition across development through to the
sale of projects and land. In addition, the Group provides real estate
asset management for third parties in particular via its subsidiaries
MAGNAT Asset Management GmbH and MAGNAT Asset Management Deutschland GmbH.

The strategy of MAGNAT is designed to exploit opportunistic inefficiencies
in real estate markets. Unlike the traditional 'Buy & Hold' approach,
MAGNAT takes a 'Develop & Sell' or 'Buy & Sell' approach, which focuses on
property development supplemented by portfolio trading.

MAGNAT investors participate in development returns in Eastern Europe,
South-Eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) as well
as in Germany and Austria.
