Final audit by Ernst & Young

Ernst & Young Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Steuerberatungsgesellschaft was elected again as independent auditor by the Annual General Meeting in 2009. The auditors reviewed the annual financial statements and the consolidated financial statements of Deutsche Wohnen AG, as well as the summarised management report, and provided an unqualified audit opinion on 5 March 2010.

Prior to the selection of Ernst & Young Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Steuerberatungsgesellschaft in the Annual General Meeting, the Audit Committee obtained a statement from the proposed auditors that there were no business, financial, personal, or other relationships between the auditor, its executive bodies and head auditors on the one hand and the company and members of its executive bodies on the other hand that could call its independence into question.
