Press Release 
DIC Asset AG places ESG linked promissory note of EUR 250 Million 
  . Successful placement of an unsecured promissory note ("Schuldschein") 
  . Average interest coupon of 1.78% 
  . 4.2-year average maturity 
  . ESG link underpins DIC Asset AG's sustainability strategy 
Frankfurt am Main, 21 April 2021. DIC Asset AG (ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4), one of Germany's leading listed property 
companies, concluded the issuance of the first ESG-linked promissory note ("Schuldschein") in the company's history in 
the amount of EUR 250 million. As a result of high demand, the transaction was oversubscribed several times at closing. 
The promissory note was placed with around 60 German and international institutional investors some of whom already 
manage their investor equity in accordance with ESG criteria. Its weighted average annual interest rate is 1.78%, the 
average maturity being 4.2 years and tranches ranging from three to ten years. The funds raised are used for further 
growth and the repayment of existing liabilities. 
Due to the ESG link of the Schuldschein, the interest rate on the various tranches can change by 5 basis points. 
Decisive here is the green building share in the existing property portfolio (Commercial Portfolio). That share equals 
11.6% as of 31 December 2020. It will be periodically reviewed in the years ahead: If the share rises to 20% or more at 
the end of 2023, the interest rate for subsequent tranches will decline by 5 basis points. The rate will remain 
unchanged if the share is between 15% and 20%. If it remains below 15%, the interest rate will step up by 5 basis 
points. Subsequent reviews will take place in the years 2026 and 2029. 
To qualify as a green building, a given property has to meet certain standards in terms of energy consumption, energy 
used, and building materials. Accordingly, the company's buildings should be as energy-efficient as possible. To this 
end, DIC Asset AG is adopting the specifications of the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) and the internationally 
established LEED, DGNB, BREEAM and ENERGY STAR standards for sustainable building certifications. 
"With the ESG-linked Schuldschein, we are once again assuming a pioneering role within our industry, which wants to 
step up its contribution to Germany's national climate targets. By linking the interest rates to reliably measurable 
sustainability ratios, we are defining concrete guidelines for our investment and refurbishment activities. A positive 
contribution to climate protection and simultaneously a lower finance expense for us -clearly a win-win arrangement," 
commented Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG. 
The banks facilitating the transaction were Bayerische Landesbank (BayernLB), Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW) and 
ING Deutschland.
