Frankfurt 01/08/2019 - publity AG (Scale, ISIN DE0006972508) is planning a joint real estate fund with the Luxembourg real estate investor and fund provider Greenfinch Capital Management S.A. ("Greenfinch") with a volume of 1 billion euros for investments in German office properties. This subfund will be launched under the umbrella of the existing Greenfinch Global Invest Fund S.C.A. SICAV-FIS ("Greenfinch Fund") in the fourth quarter of 2019 under Luxembourg law. A Letter of Intent (LOI) has now been signed by the future partners. Further joint real estate subfunds are to follow in the future. In addition, following an approach by the Managing Director of Greenfinch, a major investor of the Greenfinch fund has invested 3.0 percent of publity's shares as a strategic investor. The shares required for this were provided by publity's major shareholder. The latter is also planning a strategic investment in Greenfinch Capital Management S.A. in order to strengthen the planned partnership. The cooperation was initiated by a direct exchange between Mr Kindy Fritsch as Managing Director of the fund manager Greenfinch Capital Management S.A. and Mr Thomas Olek as CEO of the asset manager publity AG.

The new subfund is to be designed as a closed-end real estate fund and is aimed exclusively at institutional investors. Provisions are made that Greenfinch will manage the fund and publity will be responsible for the purchase of real estate and asset management. The planned structure provides for publity to receive a finder's fee for the purchase of the property, to be remunerated for the asset management and to partake in the profitable sale of the property.

Thomas Olek, CEO of publity AG: "The planned cooperation with Greenfinch is another major milestone in our successful business development and should have a significant positive impact on the further expansion of our company and the development of our remuneration as asset managers. Currently, our Assets under Management amount to approximately 5 billion Euro, as is generally known. We also see the planned cooperation as a model for further joint investment activities."

Kindy Fritsch, Managing Director of the fund manager Greenfinch Capital Management S.A.: "The Value-Add Investment strategies of publity AG and the Greenfinch Fund provide a good basis for joint high-yielding investment activities in stable economies. These attractive investments are to be made available to international institutional investors via regulated vehicles with significant volumes. As the second largest real estate fund location in the world, Luxembourg offers a solid starting point."
