TAG Immobilien AG successfully placed EUR 470 million convertible bonds

Hamburg, August 20, 2020 - TAG Immobilien AG (the "Company") placed new convertible bonds maturing in 2026 with an aggregate principal amount of EUR 470 million, divided into 4,700 bonds with a nominal amount of EUR 100,000 each (the "New Convertible Bonds"). The New Convertible Bonds are convertible into new or existing ordinary bearer shares of the Company with no par value (the "Ordinary Shares") representing approx. 9.9 % of the Company's share capital or may be repaid in cash.

The New Convertible Bonds have a term of six years and were placed at 100% of their principal amount and with a coupon of 0.625% p.a. The conversion premium has been set at 35.0%. The initial conversion price will be based on the reference share price (being the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Ordinary Shares on XETRA on August 20 and 21, 2020 plus the conversion premium). The New Convertible Bonds have been placed solely to institutional investors in certain jurisdictions (other than the United States, Australia, Canada and Japan) via a private placement under exclusion of the Company's shareholders' pre-emptive rights.

The settlement of the New Convertible Bonds is expected to take place on or about August 27, 2020. The Company intends to apply for inclusion of the New Convertible Bonds to trading on the Open Market (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse) subsequent to the settlement.

The Company has agreed to a lock-up period of 90 days after the settlement date which is subject to certain customary exceptions.

The Company will have the option to redeem the New Convertible Bonds at their principal amount (plus accrued but unpaid interest) in accordance with the terms and conditions of the New Convertible Bonds at any time (i) on or after August 27, 2024, if the price of the Ordinary Shares is equal to or exceeds 130% of the then prevailing conversion price over a specified period, or (ii) if 20% or less of the aggregate principal amount of the New Convertible Bonds remains outstanding.

The net proceeds from the issue of the New Convertible Bonds will be used (i) to finance acquisitions in Germany of more than c. 4,200 units with a total purchase price of c. EUR 163 million, (ii) to reduce dilution effects for shareholders from the Outstanding Convertible Bonds, and (iii) for general corporate purposes, including further acquisitions in Germany and Poland or the early repayment of debt.

'We are very pleased with the confidence given to us from the capital market with regard to the successful placement of the convertible bonds' says Martin Thiel, CFO of TAG Immobilien AG. 'Through this transaction, TAG has once again demonstrated its commitment to pursue a disciplined, reliable use-of-capital strategy providing high visibility to our investors.'

Goldman Sachs International and Jefferies acted as Joint Global Coordinators and, together with Société Générale, as Joint Bookrunner on this transaction. VICTORIAPARTNERS acted as Financial Advisor to the Company.
