TLG IMMOBILIEN continues to optimise its portfolio - office complex acquired in Bonn and 29 small retail properties sold

- A fully occupied office complex in Bonn has been acquired, around EUR 88.8 m gross investment

- A portfolio of 29 retail properties in various locations has been sold for around EUR 118 m

Berlin/Bonn, 20 March 2019 - TLG IMMOBILIEN (DE000A12B8Z4) continues to optimise the structure of its commercial property portfolio: a small portfolio of retail properties in various locations throughout Germany has been sold as part of the active portfolio management of the company. The company was also able to acquire a large office complex in Bonn. Both transactions underline the company's increased focus on operations since late 2018. The strategy is to remove non-strategic or work-intensive properties from the portfolio and generate sustainable value through active asset and property management and strategic investments in the portfolio, as well as by seizing opportunities for acquisitions that arise.

'These two transactions will reduce the amount of management work required by our portfolio and lead to our portfolio being concentrated in promising locations', says Jürgen Overath, COO of TLG IMMOBILIEN. 'We will reinvest some of the proceeds from the sales in the acquisition in line with our strategy of generating value.'

ACQUISITION OF 'WESTSIDE OFFICE BONN'
The office complex 'Westside Office' in the Weststadt district of Bonn was purchased from a US family office for a net purchase price of EUR 81.5 m on 28 February 2019 (Google Maps: Am Propsthof 49, 51, 53121 Bonn). Completed in 2001, the building is set to transfer to the portfolio of TLG IMMOBILIEN in April 2019. In total, the two-parts office complex features around 33,600 sqm of lettable office space and 579 parking spaces and enjoys optimal public transport connections. Westside Office is in good structural condition and is fully occupied. The main tenants are a German publicly listed company and a public authority. The property generates an annualised in-place rent of around EUR 5.3 m per annum. The WALT of Westside Office was 6.0 years as at the acquisition date. According to data collected by Larbig & Mortag, the Bonn office market had the lowest vacancy rate of all the B-rated cities in Germany at just 1.8% by the first half of 2018, creating potential for the further development of Westside Office for TLG IMMOBILIEN. Additionally, the value of the area surrounding the property can be expected to increase due to the ongoing 'WEST.SIDE' district development project. This transaction was brokered by Colliers, Gleiss Lutz acted as legal adviser for TLG IMMOBILIEN.

DISPOSAL OF A RETAIL PORTFOLIO
The disposal of a portfolio of 29 small retail properties, the majority of which are situated in Saxony-Anhalt and Lower Saxony, was notarised in March 2019 (properties on Google Maps). These properties are expensive for TLG IMMOBILIEN to manage due to their widespread, non-strategic locations. They are set to be removed from the portfolio at the end of September 2019. The buyer is Greenman. The portfolio has been sold for around EUR 118 m. TLG IMMOBILIEN was assisted with the transaction by the law firm P+P Pöllath + Partners and Greenman was assisted by the law firm White&Case LLP.
