Real estate share initiative

The Real Estate Share Initiative has two main objectives: on the one hand, to promote an understanding of indirect investments in real estate via listed real estate companies and REITs as well as to improve their public perception, and, on the other, to stimulate a regular exchange of experiences and information with national and international organisations and interest groups.

The association, of which Deutsche EuroShop is a founding member, organises the annual conference “Real Estate Share Initiative” together with its members. As an established platform, the Real Estate Share Initiative not only provides information at first hand, but, during its annual event, also offers an opportunity for personal discussions. Workshops, podium discussions and company presentations provide information on the latest trends and developments in relation to real estate shares.

The 10th Conference of the Real Estate Share Initiative was held on 19 October 2010 in Frankfurt am Main. Deutsche EuroShop’s Executive Board and Investor Relations team conducted numerous background discussions with analysts, investors and journalists and cultivated contacts.

In 2011 the specialist conference of the Real Estate Share Initiative will take place on 19 October in Frankfurt.

Exchange convention

The Exchange Convention is an event organised by Börsen AG Hamburg-Hannover and the Hanseatischer Börsenkreis of the University of Hamburg, in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce and Finanzplatz Hamburg e.V. It has already become a compulsory part of the annual programme of events for many private investors. It was held for the sixteenth time on 6 November 2010.

Last year, northern Germany’s largest finance trade show offered approximately 6,500 visitors around 70 lectures on a variety of subjects ranging from federal government securities to share and fund investments and including presentations by listed companies. Around 100 exhibitors presented at the accompanying trade show. At this time of economic crisis, private investors appeared to have a particularly great need for information on the subjects of investment and pensions.

Deutsche EuroShop participated in the Exchange Convention for the sixth time, and once again we were delighted with the considerable interest shown and the numerous visits to our stand. A large number of shareholders and interested parties took away flyers and annual reports and asked plenty of detailed questions about issues including the recent additions to our portfolio. The large trading hall provided a magnificent backdrop and gave those present a chance to breathe in some genuine trading-floor air.

Deutsche EuroShop will once again have a stand at the 2011 Exchange Convention, which will be held on 5 November. Admission is free, as always, and visitors do not need to register.

Annual general meeting

The Annual General Meeting of Deutsche EuroShop was held on 17 June 2010 in the historic rooms of the Handwerkskammer Hamburg.

In his speech, Claus-Matthias Böge, spokesman for the Executive Board, gave the 280 or so shareholders present a detailed report on the events of the past financial year, also covering current events such as the measures to increase capital and the acquisition of the A10 Center in Wildau near Berlin.

A recording of the speech was already available as a videocast shortly after the event at the website address given below. Here, interested parties will also find an extensive archive containing presentations, speeches and information relating to our recent Annual General Meetings.

Items on the agenda included the creation of new authorised capital and the amendment of the Articles of Association in line with the Gesetz zur Umsetzung der Aktionärsrechterichtlinie (ARUG – German Law on the Implementation of Shareholders’ Rights). With an attendance rate of 61.5% at the time of the vote, all items on the agenda were approved.

As is customary at our Annual General Meetings, the Executive Board and employees were available before and after the event for an exchange of information. Taking advantage of the pleasant summer weather, after the meeting many shareholders enjoyed a walk in Hamburg’s “Planten un Blomen” park situated directly opposite the Handwerkskammer.

The Annual General Meeting for the 2010 financial year will be held on 16 June 2011, once again at Handwerkskammer Hamburg.
