TAG Immobilien AG has already exceeded 30% threshold for share capital and voting rights in Colonia Real Estate AG

- Offer price per CRE share to remain at EUR 5.55

- Offer period runs through 18 January 2011

Hamburg (5 January 2011) - The management of TAG Immobilien AG ('TAG' in the following) announces that further shareholders of Colonia Real Estate AG ('CRE' in the following) have tendered their shares to TAG in connection with the voluntary public takeover bid. Including the shares it already held earlier, and pending the completion of the takeover process, TAG now holds more than 30% of the share capital and voting rights in CRE.

Against this backdrop, TAG has ruled out a subsequent increase of the price of EUR 5.55 per CRE share. TAG also points out that its agreement to support CRE in possibly refinancing the convertible bond that will become due in the event of a change of control and/ or in November 2011, doesn't come into force until TAG's holding exceeds 50%.

Reaching the 30% threshold means that the company is no longer required to extend a mandatory takeover offer to CRE shareholders.

The next reporting date in accordance with §23 Section 1 Sentence 1 No. 1 is 10 January 2011. TAG will publish an update on its holdings of CRE share capital and voting rights on this day. The deadline for accepting this takeover offer is midnight on 18 January 2011 (CET), provided it is not extended by the legal provisions of Germany's Takeover Act.
