28 August 2019.

Strong operational performance leading to high profitability and unlocking the value potential
Aroundtown (the 'Company' or 'AT') announces its results for the first half of 2019, demonstrating a strong growth in both the top-line and bottom-line results, achieved by continuous strong acquisition activities and extracting the internal potential of the portfolio. AT continues to unlock its high reversionary potential, reflected in the total like-for-like net rental income growth of 4.4%. The combined efforts led to an FFO I per share growth of 11%, which amounted to EUR0.21, EUR0.42 when annualized, representing an FFO I yield of 5.6%. Based on the dividend payout policy of 65% of the FFO I per share, this results in a dividend yield of 3.6%. EPRA NAV per share increased to EUR8.3, growing by 11% dividend adjusted and 8% net of dividend paid, showing the consistent value creation at the shareholders' level. Guidance for FY 2019E is updated based on the strong results and the strong acquisition activity, which will have a partial effect on 2019 results and only a full year impact starting 2020. Updated guidance includes additional EUR25 million FFO I (new guidance at >EUR490 million). FFO I per share guidance remains at EUR0.41- EUR0.42 (EUR0.37 - EUR0.38 after perpetual notes attribution), based on the increased number of shares from the EUR601 million equity increase in July 2019. The equity will support AT's pursuit of attractive deals generating accretive shareholder profitability.

Year-to-date signed deals of EUR2.5 billion with high reversionary rent and value-add potential
Benefitting from its large deal sourcing network and its market experience, Aroundtown signed deals year-to-date of EUR2.5 billion, of which EUR1.2 billion has been taken over in H1 2019. The year-to-date signed acquisitions are of high quality with high growth and upside potential, primarily offices and hotels, mainly located in top tier European cities Munich, Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, Frankfurt and in the Benelux. The Acquisitions are expected to be taken over in Q3 and Q4 2019.
