The issue took place on commission (best effort basis) as part of a subscription offer in Switzerland. No subscription rights were traded during the subscription period. With a subscription ratio of three (3) to one (1) (three subscription rights equate to the purchase of one new fund unit), the maximum amount of 1 000 000 units was distributed for an issue price of EUR 104.00 per unit. The payment under subscription for the new units will be made on 11 July 2019, from which date there will thus be
4 000 000 units in circulation.

The new capital will be used for the acquisition of properties and the repayment of short-term debt financing. The fund currently owns 12 properties in eight European countries with a total market value of around EUR 409 million. The additional capital serves to further pursue the fund’s successful growth strategy and the diversification of its portfolio.
