London, 7 November 2013 – AFI Development today announces that it has reached binding agreement to dispose of Building 1 in the Aquamarine III office complex in Moscow (also known as Ozerkovskaya III), which consists of four separate buildings and underground parking ("the Complex").

Under the transaction, Krown Investments LLC, the subsidiary holding rights to Aquamarine III, sells premises of the first building in the Complex and part of underground premises with gross area of 10,985.8 sq.m., a terrace of 418.9 sq.m. and approximately a 15.8% share in the title to common areas of the Complex, which total 3,728.6 sq.m. (total transacted area corresponds to approximately 11,994 sq.m.), to a Russian state controlled corporation. The consideration is to be paid in cash and amounts to Russian rouble equivalent of US$91.5 million and applicable Russian VAT.

The gross asset value of the premises being disposed is US$61.3 million (as at 30 June 2013). Due to the fact that the property is not leased, there are currently no profits attributable to the disposed premises.

AFI Development expects to receive net profit on the transaction in the amount of approximately US$14.6 million.

The sale proceeds will be used by the Company primarily for partial repayment of the existing loan facility by VTB Bank JSC.

Completion of the transaction is subject to a condition that AFI Development removes the existing mortgage over the disposed premises and the land lease rights in favour of VTB Bank JSC. VTB Bank JSC has already consented to the transaction. The Company expects the transaction to be completed in December 2013.

Commenting on today's announcement, Mr Mark Groysman, Executive Director of AFI Development said: "We are very pleased to announce the disposal of the first building within our Aquamarine III office complex. We are confident that the transaction terms are beneficial for AFI Development and its shareholders. This sale is in line with our strategy of disposing of our completed developments for a favourable consideration".
