DIC Asset AG Starts into New Year with Acquisition for its Proprietary Portfolio - DIC Onsite senior management completed

Frankfurt am Main, 10 January 2019. DIC Asset AG, one of Germany's leading listed property companies, acquired a fully occupied multi-tenant office building located in a technology park in Bremen via an asset deal from a private seller during the first days of the year, the asset being earmarked for its proprietary holdings. The transaction thus maintains the growth trajectory in 2019 that the company pursued for its Commercial Portfolio last year.

The office complex acquired by DIC Asset AG is mainly occupied by the University of Bremen, has a lettable area of around 9,400 sqm and 136 parking spots. The average lease term (WALT) is around 4.5 years. The total investment costs equalled EUR 14.7 million. The transfer of undertakings, rights and obligations for the property is scheduled to take place before the end of the first quarter of 2019.

While Bremen is a smaller office market judging by the size of its population, it is a very stable market. Being one of Germany's city states, Bremen has successfully positioned itself as a service and industrial location in recent decades. The technology park located north-east of the inner city has attracted companies belonging in the information and communications technology sector as well as aerospace technology companies. These research-intensive industries benefit from the proximity of the university campus and university-related institutes and societies.

"The plan for 2019 is to keep expanding our proprietary holdings and to ensure the quality of our Commercial Portfolio in the long term. Assets of high value such as the property in Bremen contribute significantly to our rental income as one of the income streams of our hybrid business model," said Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG.

As previously announced at the end of last year, DIC Asset AG reshuffled the senior management of its subsidiary DIC Onsite GmbH. At the start of January, Joachim von Bredow and Marco Knopp assumed their duties. Joachim von Bredow is a highly experienced real estate specialist who has been active on behalf of DIC in various roles for a long period of time. Marco Knopp is also a proven expert in the real estate sector and has many years of experience in leading positions for institutional investors (KanAm and MEAG) as well as service providers (ReAssociates and Drees & Sommer).
