    district 3 of the city of Vienna (Austria)

  - The property occupies a plot measuring about 1,300 m² (approx. 14,000
    square feet) in area, with building floorspace of some 1,100m² (approx.
    11,800 square feet)

  - MAGNAT is now proceeding with a second builders model entity, in
    addition to the venture in Vienna's Kastnergasse (in district 17)

Frankfurt am Main (Germany), 26th May 2010 - During the last week, the
Vienna (Austria)-based firm MAGNAT Asset Management GmbH, a subsidiary of
the listed company MAGNAT Real Estate Opportunities GmbH & Co. KGaA
(MAGNAT), has acquired a new property for a further builders model in
Vienna. After the successful positioning of the builders model
'Schumanngasse' (in district 18) and the initiation of sales relating to
the builders model 'Kastnergasse' (in district 17), the Rennweg project (in
district 3) is the third builders model entity currently being set in
motion. In the course of this endeavour, the MAGNAT Group is intensifying
the implementation of its strategy via its Austrian subsidiary MAGNAT Asset
Management GmbH, as part of a clear effort to promote its builders model

The 'Rennweg' entity concerns a plot measuring more than 1,286m² (13,800
square feet) in area. Plans envisage the construction of apartments with a
total floor area of around 1,000m² (10,700 square feet). Some ten to
thirteen TOPS apartment with a floor area of between 45m² - 90m² (approx.
480 to 970 square feet) distributed across five upper floors are planned,
along with a penthouse floor and about 13 outdoor and 17 covered parking
spaces. The plan also envisages commercial premises on the ground floor,
with a floorspace of about 62m² (approx. 660 square feet).

MAGNAT Capital Markets GmbH will be handling sales for this
project-management entity. The company has already successfully positioned
the Schumanngasse project, and is currently marketing the Kastnergasse

As MAGNAT CEO Jan Oliver Rüster puts it: 'This acquisition is the
confirmation of our declared strategy of consistently promoting our
builders model business in Vienna. The successful positioning of a
project-management entity in January 2010, which was associated with a
highly-satisfactory return on investment, shows both that our strategy is
the right one and that our market expertise is bearing fruit.'
