Strong operational results maintained amid continued rapid growth

Aroundtown (the 'Company' or 'AT') exceeded in the first nine months of 2017 its full year profit for 2016 with a net profit of EUR1.1 billion, demonstrating the Company's strong value generation abilities. The operational profits increased by 44% with an FFO I of EUR204 million. Including the annualized effect of the portfolio held at the end of September 2017 and with acquisitions after the reporting period, the FFO I increased further to EUR339 million on a monthly annualized basis as of December 2017, equivalent to EUR0.36 per share and reflecting a strong FFO yield of 6% and a dividend yield of 3.9%.

Milestones and achievements continue to highlight AT's successful growth
In tandem with the strong and growing financial results, Aroundtown was able to achieve several notable milestones in the first nine months of 2017. Following the uplisting to the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in June and the re-domiciliation of the corporate seat to Luxembourg in September, AT was included in the SDAX index of the Deutsche Börse as well as the the Stoxx 600 index in October resulting in greater market visibility. At the same time, AT's strategic investment GCP was added to the MDAX index, further affirming its position among the top residential real estate companies in Germany.

Aroundtown's continuing efforts on the sustainability front also yielded strong results: in August the Company was ranked in the 88th percentile among nearly 300 global peers for its ESG efforts, also ranking as Outperformer in all sub-categories. Additionally, Aroundtown was awarded the EPRA BPR Gold award in September, the highest award for financial reporting standards.

After reporting date, in October 2017, Aroundtown issued EUR450 million equity, strengthening the equity structure and increasing the EPRA NAV incl perpetual notes to EUR7.4 billion on a pro forma basis, and the equity to EUR6.9 billion.

Aroundtown raised during 2017 in the global capital markets EUR4.1 billion of equity and long term bonds, thus being the largest real estate issuer in 2016-2017 YTD in Europe.
