Leipzig, 28.12.2020 – The Supervisory Board of PREOS Global Office Real Estate & Technology AG ("PREOS", ISIN DE000A2LQ850, m:access) and Thomas Olek, CEO of publity AG, have agreed today to postpone negotiations on Olek assuming the position of CEO of PREOS. For the time being, Olek will assume the function of advisor for the entire publity Group as of 1 January 2021. In doing so, he will focus on strengthening the areas of big data real estate analysis and internationalisation, which have been identified as key success factors for the further growth of the companies in the publity Group.

Meanwhile, the PREOS Group has expanded its Executive Board team: By resolution of 16.11.2020, the Supervisory Board appointed the lawyer Stephan Noetzel as a further member of the PREOS Executive Board alongside Frederik Mehlitz. Noetzel has assumed the position of Chief Operating Officer (COO) on the Executive Board as of 01.12.2020. Previously, he was Head of NPL Services at publity AG.

Regardless of recent developments, Olek's demands connected to his commitment to PREOS are to be maintained. Instead of a cash dividend for the 2020 financial year, a resolution is to be proposed to the Shareholders' Meeting in 2021 again to issue bonus shares. Additionally, the 10% cash capital increase under consideration is to be maintained. However, this is not expected to be in January 2021, but at a later date in 2021. For the long term, PREOS still plans to develop its share into a dividend stock with a target of 5% of the share price.
