Polish investment fund BPH TFI holds over 5% of Warimpex shares

(lifePR) (Vienna, ) Warimpex Finanz- und Beteiligungs AG has received an announcement concerning a change in the number of Warimpex shares owned by the Polish investment fund BPH Towarzystwo Funduszy Inwestycyjnych SA (BPH Investment Fund Company, or BPH TFI). As of 19 April 2010, BPH TFI reported a holding of 1,986,520 shares, or 5.02% of Warimpex Finanz- und Beteiligungs AG's issued share capital (39,599,999 shares). BPH TFI (www.bphtfi.pl/en/) has been operating on the Polish capital market since 1998. It is owned by General Electric Company.

"This investment reflects the confidence of the Polish investment fund in our company and highlights the importance of our listing on the Warsaw Stock Exchange," said Warimpex CEO Franz Jurkowitsch. The positive development of the Polish market, even during challenging times such as these, has proven that Warimpex's strategy of focusing on hotel operations and development projects in Poland is successful. Generating 37% of Warimpex's business, Poland has now become Warimpex's core market.

Generally, the Polish capital market has received a boost from the activities of investment funds such as BPH TFI and pension funds. One of the main reasons behind the Polish capital market's significance - not only for Warimpex - lies in the Polish retirement system, which is based on two main pillars: a public system and a private investment programme. Polish retirement funds have to invest a significant part of their capital in shares that are listed in Poland, which is an important driver for the Polish capital market. This factor was essential in Warimpex's decision to go public in Warsaw in 2007.

Warimpex's shareholder structure as of 22 April 2010

- 19.10% Franz Jurkowitsch
- 19.20% Georg Folian
- 14.40% Amber Privatstiftung
- 14.40% Bocca Privatstiftung
- 5.02% BPH Towarzystwo Funduszy Inwestycyjnych SA
- 27.88% free float
