Zurich, 4 April 2017 - Peach Property Group AG has resolved to perform a capital increase to reinforce its institutional investor base and to finance the further expansion of the Group. 422,554 new registered shares of Peach Property Group AG will be issued from the authorised capital, each with a nominal value of CHF 1.00, while excluding shareholders' subscription rights, as part of a private placement. The issue price corresponds to the volume-weighted average of Peach Property Group AG's share price in the past 60 trading days.

All of the 422,554 new registered shares have been subscribed by Kreissparkasse Biberach. The gross proceeds from the issue totals CHF 6.9 million. Peach Property Group AG's General Meeting in May 2015 resolved to create authorised capital in the amount of 2,000,000 shares. The company is planning to issue these shares from this authorised capital; the other shares from the authorised capital will expire on 8 May 2017. The funds from the capital increase are to be used to further expand the portfolio of residential properties, focusing on B-locations in Germany. The Group was able to increase its portfolio of residential properties by more than one third to 4,243 units at the start of March 2017, thus increasing its annualized target rental income to CHF around 22 million.

Kreissparkasse Biberach will acquire an interest of 7.8% in Peach Property Group AG and thus become the company's second largest shareholder after its CEO Dr. Thomas Wolfensberger. Kreissparkasse Biberach plans to hold a long-term interest in Peach Property Group AG as part of its investment strategy.

This placement increases Peach Property Group AG's share capital from CHF 4,991,923 to CHF 5,414,477. This corresponds to an increase in the previous share capital of around 8.5%. The first day of trading of new shares on SIX Swiss Exchange is 7 April 2017.

Dr. Thomas Wolfsberger, Peach Property Group's CEO, commented: "Acquiring Kreissparkasse Biberach as an anchor investor is a key milestone for our company, and we are very proud of this. This investment anchors our company even more strongly in the institutional investor segment, and highlights our profile as a residential property owner. We will use the funds accruing to our company from this transaction to acquire residential properties in Germany and to thus accelerate our further growth."
