Vonovia SE: Takeover offer for Deutsche Wohnen - minimum shareholder approval of 50% not expected to be reached (news

The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. 
Takeover offer for Deutsche Wohnen - minimum shareholder approval of 50% not expected to be reached 
- Approval rate is currently 47.62 percent 
- Promise to Vonovia's tenants in Berlin still applies: limit on rent increases until 2026. In addition, focus on new 
construction and continue talks about the sale of apartments to the state of Berlin 
Bochum, 23 July 2021 - The public takeover offer from Vonovia SE ("Vonovia") for Deutsche Wohnen SE ("Deutsche Wohnen") 
is unlikely to have received the necessary approval from Deutsche Wohnen shareholders by the end of the voting period 
on 21 July 2021. At the current count (taking into account the Deutsche Wohnen shares already held by Vonovia), 
approximately 47.62% of the Deutsche Wohnen shares have been tendered. By the end of the rebooking period, today at 
6pm, there will likely not be any further significant bookings. Therefore, a key condition for the completion of the 
Offer will probably not be fulfilled. A significant proportion of Deutsche Wohnen's shareholders are currently hedge 
funds and, in addition, index funds, which are only allowed to trade once the minimum acceptance quota has been reached 
and all closing conditions have been met. The final result is expected to be published 26 July 2021. 
Rolf Buch, Chairman of the Management Board of Vonovia: "We have received broad support for our proposal to combine 
Deutsche Wohnen with Vonovia. We maintain that a combination of the two companies makes a lot of sense, both 
economically and socio-politically, and is the most effective solution to the major challenges facing the housing 
market. Unfortunately, an insufficient proportion of the current shareholders of Deutsche Wohnen have turned in their 
Vonovia continues to view the combination of the two companies as strategically compelling. "We will now carefully 
examine all options available, including for example the sale of Deutsche Wohnen shares already owned by Vonovia, the 
launch of another public offer or the purchase of additional Deutsche Wohnen shares," says Rolf Buch. 
Promise to Vonovia's tenants in Berlin still applies: limit on rent increases until 2026. 
As part of the public takeover bid and in the event of a combination, Vonovia and Deutsche Wohnen provided the state of 
Berlin a comprehensive offer. This provided for a limit on rent increases; a promise to build new apartments in Berlin, 
especially for young families; and the offer to contribute apartments from the current portfolio to expand the 
municipal housing stock. 
Rolf Buch: "As market leader, we take our social responsibility and our dependability seriously. Therefore, we will 
continue our talks with the state of Berlin, as far as this is possible on our own, even without the combination with 
Deutsche Wohnen. Our tenants can fully rely on the announced limit to rent increases until 2026. We will also continue 
to discuss the other aspects of the offer - the construction of new apartments and the offer for Berlin to be able to 
acquire housing stock - with the relevant parties."

Important information: 
This announcement is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares in Deutsche Wohnen. The 
terms and conditions of the takeover offer, as well as further provisions concerning the takeover offer, are published 
in the offer document, the publication of which has been permitted by the German Federal Financial Supervisory 
Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht). Investors and holders of shares in Deutsche Wohnen are 
strongly advised to read the offer document and all other documents regarding the takeover offer, as they contain 
important information. 
The offer relates to shares in a German company and is subject to the statutory provisions of the Federal Republic of 
Germany governing the conduct of such an offer. Deutsche Wohnen shareholders who are residents of the United States 
should note that the tender offer is being made with respect to securities of a company that is a foreign private 
issuer within the meaning of Rule 3b-4 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and 
whose shares are not registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act. 
With respect to Deutsche Wohnen shareholders in the United States the tender offer is being made on the basis of the 
so-called "Tier II" exemption. This "Tier II" exemption allows a Bidder to comply with certain material and procedural 
requirements of the Exchange Act applicable to tender offers by complying with the law or practice of its home 
jurisdiction and exempts the Bidder from compliance with certain other requirements. As a result, the tender offer is 
principally subject to disclosure requirements and other procedural requirements (e.g. with respect to withdrawal 
rights, acceptance period, settlement, and timing of payments) of the Federal Republic of Germany, which differ not 
insignificantly from the corresponding U.S. laws. 
The Bidder and its affiliates or brokers (acting as agents of the Bidder or its affiliates, if any) may, to the extent 
permitted by applicable laws or regulations, directly or indirectly acquire shares in Deutsche Wohnen or enter into 
agreements to acquire shares outside of the public tender offer before, during or after the term of the offer. This 
also applies to other securities convertible into, exchangeable for or exercisable for shares of Deutsche Wohnen. These 
purchases may be concluded via the stock exchange at market prices or outside the stock exchange on negotiated terms. 
If such purchases or agreements to purchase are made, they will be made outside the United States and will comply with 
applicable law, including, to the extent applicable, the Exchange Act. All information regarding such purchases will be 
disclosed in accordance with the laws or regulations applicable in Germany or any other relevant jurisdiction and on 
the website of the Bidder at https://en.vonovia-st.de/. To the extent that information on such purchases or purchase 
agreements is published in Germany, such information shall also be deemed to be publicly disclosed in the United 
States. In addition, the financial advisors of the Bidder may also act in the ordinary course of trading in securities 
of the Company, which may include purchases or agreements to purchase such securities. 
Shareholders of Deutsche Wohnen, domiciled or habitually resident in the United States ("U.S. Shareholders") may face 
difficulties in enforcing their rights and claims under U.S. federal securities laws because both Deutsche Wohnen and 
Vonovia are domiciled outside the United States and all of their respective directors and officers are domiciled 
outside the United States. U.S. shareholders may not be able to sue a company incorporated outside the United States or 
its directors and officers in a court outside the United States for violations of U.S. securities laws. Furthermore, 
difficulties may arise in enforcing judgments of a U.S. court against a company with its registered office outside the 
United States. 
The receipt of cash pursuant to the offer by a U.S. Shareholder may be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income 
tax purposes and under applicable state and local, as well as foreign and other tax laws. Each holder of Deutsche 
Wohnen shares is urged to consult their independent professional advisor immediately regarding the tax consequences of 
the acceptance of the offer. Neither Vonovia nor the persons acting jointly with Vonovia within the meaning of Section 
2 para. 5 WpÜG nor its or their respective directors, officers or employees assume any responsibility for any tax 
consequences or liabilities resulting from an acceptance of the offer. 
To the extent that this document contains forward-looking statements, they are not statements of fact and are
