3 Economy 2 Poland is considered as a target market among investors. 6th largest economy in EU by population (38 million people) EU entry in May 2004: fast development of ICT and BPO sectors Diversified economy - manufacturing, light and heavy industry, automotive and increasing share of services Boost for infrastructure - Poland is to receive nearly 20% of the EUs 308 billion structural funds for the period 2007-2013 Eight cities with more than 400,000 inhabitants, 17 cities with more than 200,000 inhabitants, 39 cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants 4 Polish cities to host Euro 2012 championships – Warsaw, Poznań, Wrocław and Gdańsk In recent years the Polish economy has proved to have a strong macroeconomic base as it was relatively immune to the negative situation and instability on many European markets.

4 Poland - Macroeconomic Overview Economy in good dynamic shape 3 Source: Central Statistical Office (GUS), Oxford Economics Poland the only country within the European Union to avoid recession in 2009: Well-capitalised financial sector, low degree of openness of the economy and timely reactions from fiscal and monetary policies Strong GDP growth compared with other EU countries (4.3% y-o-y in 2011), with inflation slightly above the target Positive macroeconomic trends result mainly from growth of internal demand and large-scale infrastructure investments The Warsaw stock exchange is the largest one in Central Eastern Europe and one of the fastest growing in the world Acceptable level of public debt: 56.7% of Gross Domestic Product Due to the global macroeconomic slowdown expected in 2012, the Polish economy may also experience a decrease in GDP growth to approximately 2.5% (-0.3% for the euro area).

7 Central and Eastern Europe vs Poland Poland far more dynamic than other CEE countries. The country has proven its position as the leading market in the CEE Region * Czech Republic, Hungary, Ukraine, Slovakia Source: IVG Research/European Commission Ø Economic growth 2007 - 2011 Investment volumes* 6

8 The Polish real estate investment market 7 2.5bn of investment transactions was recorded in 2011 representing 37% increase year on year. 1,5bn transacted in the second half of 2011 contributing 60% to the total volume represents the strongest six months since the beginning of 2007. Market activity in 2012 is expected to remain polarised between core players looking for security at better price in Poland and opportunistic players targetting 17 - 25% IRRs, the latter group being more volatile to financing restrictions. Banks remain cautious but financing is available for best in class assets, including larger lot sizes via club deals. Investment Volumes Poland, 2000 – 2011 Investment Transaction Volume by sector, 2011

9 Prime Investment Yields – 2005 – 2012(f) 8 After two years of upward revision, prime yields in all sectors compressed by 25 – 50 p.p. Therefore prime office and retail yields as at the end of 2011 were at the level of approximately 6.25 and 6.00% respectively. Prime yields in the logistics property sector stood at 7.75%. DTZ expects prime yields to remain relatively stable in the first quarters of 2012. Yields for the secondary assets are traded on average 100 -125 bps higher.

10 Poland - Investment highlights Poland has not only a large domestic market but also has developed strong growth momentum as a result of its successful transition to a market economy. The prospects that the success story will continue are good, considering the moderate national public debt, essential improvements to the transportation infrastructure and the large pool of low-cost, dedicated and skilled workforce General Economy The classification of Poland as CEE country appears out-of-date, as the individual countries of Central and Eastern Europe have developed very differently in the last two decades. But also a comparison of Poland with Western Europe is not adequate, because Poland is much worse off with regard to income per capita, but better positioned in terms of economic growth and public indebtedness Poland not part of CEE The Warsaw office rental market has been experiencing a steep upswing since mid 2010, leading to a considerable reduction in the vacancy rate and a strong recovery in rent levels. The expected high demand for office space in 2012 and especially 2013 will be met by a number of potential completions Poland has a liquid, relatively transparent investment market characterised by international players and, due to its relatively short history and growth dynamics, a large supply of modern and core properties. Real Estate Market In a number of international surveys, Poland is currently ranked as one of the most attractive countries in Europe for commercial real estate investments. Reasons for this are, in addition to the broad range of investment opportunities and relatively high achievable yields, the Polish economys good position as compared to other European economies and its growth prospects, which are relatively good in spite of the sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone Poland – Investment highlights in Commercial Real Estate

13 The Polish retail market Comments Large agglomerations dominate the retail market, however over the last four-five years secondary and tertiary cities have been gaining on importance, substantially increasing their market share in the overall volume of annual retail supply. Around 59% of total modern retail supply is situated in 8 major Polish agglomerations with a population over 400,000. These are Warsaw, Krakow, Silesia, TriCity, Poznan, Wroclaw, Lodz and Szczecin. Source: DTZ Supply split by city size, 2011 Retail supply by formats, 2011 12


15 The Polish retail market Comments 50% of supply delivered in 2010 was situated in eight major Polish agglomerations with a population over 400,000. In 2011 it oscillated around 25%. New stock delivered in 2011 amounted to ca. 740,000 sq m, what indicates around 35% increase in comparison to 2010. DTZ notice growing interest of landlords in redevelopment and repositioning activities as large part of the stock is already over 10-years old Retailers are still picky when it comes to new projects, but more confident about expansion plans. Food and DIY chains, as well as established fashion brands and new entrants are very active. Source: DTZ Annual supply split by city size Vacancy rate in major cities, End of 2011 14

16 The Polish retail market: opportunities Comments Wrocław, Warsaw, Poznań and TriCity are the most developed markets in terms of operating formats. 51% out of over 6,5 million sq m located in eight major agglomerations is occupied either by large scale big boxes (food operators, DIY, electronic appliances etc.) located as stand alone projects or in shopping centres. Prime rents remain stable, while secondary properties are under strong retailers pressure. Modern Retail Space mix Prime Retail Rents 15

24 The regional office market 23 Source: DTZ Comments Office market in Poland is dominated by Warsaw with 64% share in a total stock.

28 The Polish industrial and logistic market 27 Total industrial and logistic stock in Poland at the end of Q4 2011 was estimated at 6.9 mn sq m. Approx. 40% of the stock is located within Greater Warsaw area including three zones – Warsaw Zone 1 (within the city limits), Warsaw Zone 2 (approx. 15-30 km from Warsaw centre) and Warsaw Zone 3 (approx. 30-50 km from Warsaw centre). Among the largest regionals market there are: Upper Silesia, Central Poland, Poznań Region and Lower Silesia Source: DTZ Research *numbers on the map show total stock (000 sq m) at the end of 2011 Major industrial and logistic hubs in Poland Tricity Region 140 Poznań Region 840 Greater Warsaw 2,700 920 Central Poland Lower Silesia 680 Kraków Region 1,300 150 Upper Silesia Source: DTZ Research Stock split by regions, Q4 2011

29 The Polish industrial and logistic market 28 Developers focused on pre-let and BTS projects which resulted in a substantially low level of new supply (approx. 350,000 sq m in 2011). Taking into consideration level of space under construction we expect higher level of deliveries in 2012. Record level of take-up, including new agreeements as well as renegotiations, in 2011 (1.8 million sq m) which is a 20% increase y-o-y. Constant decrease of vacancy rates – from 18.0% at the end of 2009 to 11.7% at the end of 2011 resulting from strong take-up and very low level of speculative developments Prime headline rents oscillating from 5.20 per sm per month (62 /sq m/year) in Warsaw Zone 1 to 3.8 – 4.0 per sq m per month (45.6-48 /sq m/year) in Warsaw Zone 2, Upper Silesia, Tricity Region and Krakow Region to 3.10 – 3.30 (37-40 /sq m/year) in other major regions.
