(DGAP-Media / 03.01.2013 / 11:25) HAMBORNER REIT AG - Starting the new year with growth - Transfer of ownership for office property 'NUOffice' in Munich - Property in Karlsruhe already added to portfolio on 30 November 2012 - Portfolio growth of approximately EUR77 million in total Duisburg, 3 January 2013 - HAMBORNER REIT AG has already enjoyed a good start to the new year. The 'NUOffice', a new office property constructed in Parkstadt Schwabing in Munich over the last two years, was added to the company portfolio yesterday. In the next few months, the approximately 12,000 m² building with an investment volume of approximately EUR40 million is expected to receive LEED platinum certification and will therefore be one of the first properties in Germany in this top category. This pioneering property was developed and sold by a real estate company owned by Hubert Haupt Immobilien Holding from Grünwald near Munich. In addition, at the end of November 2012 - and thus somewhat earlier than expected - HAMBORNER added the office and retail property at Rüppurrer Strasse 1 in Karlsruhe to it books. The contract for the property, whose core tenant is EDEKA, was signed only a short time before in October 2012. The purchase price for this property is approximately EUR37 million. 'We are pleased that with the properties in Munich and Karlsruhe we now have a further two attractive properties in our portfolio. It is especially pleasing that these now already contribute to the rents for all of 2013 and thus are of course also FFO effective,' commented the members of HAMBORNER's Managing Board Dr. Rüdiger Mrotzek and Hans Richard Schmitz.
