ACCENTRO Real Estate AG: Background to the notification of the orders for audit by BaFin

Berlin, 8 July 2024 – Germany's federal financial Supervisory Authority (“BaFin”) announced in decisions dated 13 and 25 June
2024 that it had ordered an examination for cause pursuant to section
107, paragraph
1, sentence
1, German Securities Trading Act, towards ACCENTRO Real Estate AG (“Company”) and reported on this on its homepage today. The orders for audit concern exclusively the Company's accounting for the reversal of the acquisition of DIM
Holding
AG (“DIM transaction”) in the disclosed annual and consolidated financial statements dated 31
December 2021 and 31
December 2022 along with the related combined management reports for the 2021 and 2022 financial years.

The reason for the order were indications suggesting that the Company's claim to repayment of the purchase price including interest in the amount of EUR
15.8 million as of 31
December 2021 (31
December 2022: EUR
16.5 million) and the loan granted to DIM Holding AG including interest in the amount of EUR
3.1 million as of 31
December 2021 (31
December 2022: EUR
3.3 million) might have had to be adjusted in the respective financial years.

As a result of the orders for audit, BaFin will audit the Company's accounting separately in relation to the DIM transaction during the 2021 and 2022 financial years. Other than that, the Company's financial reports for the 2021 and 2022 financial years are not subject to any further auditing by BaFin.

The Company maintains close communication with BaFin to further clarify the past facts and to bring the examinations for cause to an amicable conclusion in a constructive dialog.

Independently of this, the new Management Board has already made a value adjustment of EUR 13.3 million as of 30 September 2023 due to ongoing developments in connection with the enforcement of the claim and to the very distressed situation on the real estate market, which was reported in detail in the respective opportunity and risk report (page 10 of the interim financial statement for Q3
2023). The residual receivable from the DIM transaction has therefore only amounted to EUR
4.4 million since 30
September
2023. In this respect, the Management Board does not expect any relevant disadvantages for the Company.
