Warimpex AGM approves issue of convertible bonds and expands Supervisory Board . Issue of convertible bonds within 5 years
. Four new members appointed to Supervisory Board
. Alarich Fenyves new Chairman of Supervisory Board

Today's Annual General Meeting of Warimpex Finanz- und Beteiligungs AG in Vienna established the prerequisites for a convertible bond offering and expanded the group's Supervisory Board. Alarich Fenyves will be the new chairman of the Supervisory Board, with former chairman Heinrich Geyer as his deputy.

At today's AGM the shareholders authorised the Management Board to issue within the next five years convertible bonds granting a conversion or subscription right to up to 9 million shares, representing up to EUR 9m of the company's paid-up share capital. All further conditions together with the details of the issue and conversion procedure will be defined by the Management Board with the Supervisory Board's consent. The subscription right of shareholders was waived in order to keep the company's financing costs down and allow it to target the offering at the group of institutional investors in the capital market specialising in convertible bonds.

Changes in the Supervisory Board

Gert Hoppe, a member of the Supervisory Board since 2003, stepped down from his mandate, which will be taken over by Friedrich Grassi for the remaining term of one year. A business associate of Warimpex since as early as 1989, Grassi was the company's partner in the development of the Hotel Diplomat in Prague and numerous other joint venture projects.

In addition, four further new members were elected to the Supervisory Board:

. Alicja Kornasiewicz, member of the Management Board of CA IB Corporate Finance GmbH in Vienna and CEO of UniCredit CA IB Polska S.A.,
. Alarich Fenyves, former deputy CEO of Creditanstalt AG, partner at Roland Berger Strategy Consultants in Vienna since 2001 and member of the Supervisory Board of CA Immo International AG,
. William Henry Marie de Gelsey, Senior Advisor at CA IB Corporate Finance Ltd. since 2007,
. Wolfgang Mitterberger, member of the Management Board of Raiffeisen Wohnbaubank AG since 2000.

The mandates of the newly elected members of the Supervisory Board run until the close of the Annual General Meeting for the financial year 2011. The Warimpex Supervisory Board now numbers eight members.
