Earnings Forecast/9-month report

Subtitle: IFRS consolidated net income up by 10% to EUR 4.5 million (previous
year: EUR 4.1 million) / Adjusted consolidated net income (EPRA earnings) at EUR
4.2 million, slightly ahead of previous year's EUR 4.1 million / FY 2011
consolidated net income forecast upgraded to EUR 5.6 million (+12%)

Munich (euro adhoc) - November 15, 2011 - Fair Value REIT-AG generated around
EUR 4.5 million of consolidated net income in the first nine months of the
current financial year, thereby exceeding the previous year's figure of EUR 4.1
million by 10%. The rise compared to the previous year is primarily the result
of an earnings-effective market value increase in cash flow hedges in the
associated companies. Consolidated earnings adjusted for market value changes
(EPRA earnings) amounted to around EUR 4.2 million, and were therefore slightly
higher than the previous-year mark of approximately EUR 4.1 million.

Operating earnings (EBIT) of EUR 4.2 million were in line with expectations and
were 21% lower than the previous year's figure of around EUR 5.3 million, mainly
because of expenses related to re-letting. In contrast, the results of the
associated companies rose substantially, up by EUR 1.1 million, or 33%, to EUR
4.5 million. Of the increase in earnings from participations, around 40% is due
to lower interest expenses, including after the successful refinancing of
mortgage loans in the second quarter of 2011, and around 60% is attributable to
an improvement in the valuation of interest-rate hedges. 

The group's equity amounted to EUR 77.6 million on the balance sheet date
(December 31, 2010: EUR 74.6 million). The balance sheet net asset value (NAV)
per share in circulation increased by 4% to EUR 8.32 as a consequence (December
31, 2010: EUR 8.00). Taking into account the minority holdings in the
subsidiaries, the equity ratio as defined in Section 15 of the German REIT Act
(REITG) increased to 50.7% of immovable assets (December 31, 2010: 49.6%). 

Frank Schaich, the company's CEO, commented on further reasons for the Fair
Value Group's positive business trend, and the upgrade to the forecast: "The
rental ratio for our proportional overall portfolio at 94.4% represents a slight
increase on the previous year's level of 93.6%. In terms of costs, we achieved
significant savings on interest expenses and on rental-related costs. These are
the main factors that prompted us to boost our earnings expectations for the
2011 financial year. Instead of consolidated net income of previously EUR 5.0
million (EUR 0.54 per share), we now anticipate EUR 5.6 million, or EUR 0.60 per

The Management Board is still aiming to distribute a dividend of at least EUR
0.10 per share for 2011, although the requisite German commercial law results
and liquidity inflows for this have not yet been secured.  
The interim report for the first nine months of 2011, which will be available in
the course of today on the company's website at within the
Investor Relations area, provides a full overview of current business trends.
