With reference to the ad hoc releases of 29 April 2014 and 30 April 2014, S IMMO AG (Bloomberg: SPI:AV, Reuters: SIAG.VI; ISIN: AT0000652250) announces that, after establishment of all prerequisites for the implementation, its offer to exchange the S IMMO INVEST participating certificates (ISIN: AT0000795737 and ISIN: AT0000630694) listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange for a bond will open on 21 May 2014.
The exchange offer applies to up to 1,140,000 of the 2,280,797 S IMMO INVEST participating certificates at present outstanding, i.e. approximately half of the outstanding total.

The offer closes on 06 June 2014. The increase in the exchange rate from EUR 78.88 to EUR 79.11 per participating certificate is attributable to the postponement of the implementation of the exchange offer.
