MAGNAT sees inflow of EUR 5 million from sale  from the Turkish YKB

  - The 'Boronkay' property is sold with an area of 23,765 m²

  - Selling price is 3.5 times the purchase price

  - Sale will be recognised on cash flow statement for the third quarter;
    significant strengthening of the Company's liquidity

Frankfurt am Main, 17 November 2009 - MAGNAT Real Estate Opportunities GmbH
& Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0XFSF0) is able to announce the successful sale of
the 'Boronkay' property, which is part of the YKB portfolio and covers
23,765 m². MAGNAT holds a 33.3% stake in this YKB portfolio and will
receive EUR 5 million from the sale.

The 'Boronkay' property was acquired in July 2007 as part of the overall
portfolio and is located in Istanbul. The Turkish capital is marked by
rapid population growth and therefore it was possible to achieve a
respectable appreciation in value. Originally acquired for EUR 4.5 million
and evaluated at EUR 7.3 million, the selling price of EUR 15.7 million
means a return on investment amounting to 250%.

MAGNAT has held a 33.3% stake in the YKB portfolio since July 2007 and
originally invested some EUR 21 million in equity. Re-marketing of the YKB
portfolio has been very positive and therefore a total of EUR 8.5 million
has flowed back into the Company from this portfolio. Further inflows are
expected in the coming months.

Jan Oliver Rüster, CEO of MAGNAT, comments: 'The successful sale of that
part of our YKB project portfolio is very pleasing. To MAGNAT, the cash
inflow of EUR 5 million means a significant strengthening of liquidity.
However, more importantly we underpin the sustainability of our strategy
with this sale. This is a path that we are pursuing intensively and
consistently in the interest of our shareholders.'
