WESTGRUND Aktiengesellschaft

Berlin, 11 October 2021:
ADLER Group S.A. (“ADLER”), the indirect parent company of WESTGRUND Aktiengesellschaft (“WESTGRUND”), and LEG Immobilien SE (“LEG”) today have signed a term sheet setting out the key points of a transaction regarding the sale of a total of 15,350 residential units and 185 commercial units. The proposed transaction relates to 7,230 residential units and 58 commercial units of WESTGRUND.

The transaction is based on a real estate portfolio valuation of EUR 1.485 billion. This is above the respective book values as of 30 June 2021. The value of the real estate of WESTGRUND amounts to ca. EUR 841 million. The transaction shall be executed by way of share deals and the WESTGRUND group shall retain a 10.1% participation in the relevant entities. Therefore, the cash inflow, also due to customary purchase price adjustments, will not correspond to the real estate valuation.
The closing of the transaction is subject to due diligence conducted by LEG, the conclusion of final agreements and the fulfillment of customary market conditions, in particular regulatory approvals, and is expected to take place by the end of 2021.
