Initiation of Expert Procedure concerning a credit default hedge under the
"ESTATE UK-3" securitisation transaction

Munich, 13 December 2016 - Deutsche Pfandbriefbank AG ("pbb"), the legal
successor of Hypo Real Estate Bank International AG, Stuttgart, is the
issuer of credit linked notes of the "Estate UK-3" synthetic securitisation
transaction ("Credit Linked Notes"). These Credit Linked Notes hedge the
default risk from certain credit exposures of pbb, provided that the
conditions for the allocation of realised losses have been fulfilled in
accordance with the terms of the Credit Linked Notes. A default affecting
one of the hedged exposures ("Reference Claim No. 3") has caused a loss of
approximately GBP 113 million (please refer to pbb's ad-hoc announcement
dated 18 January 2016); pbb intends to allocate this loss to the Credit
Linked Notes. This loss allocation would trigger a total loss for Credit
Linked Notes Classes A2, B, C, D and E, and would reduce the nominal amount
of Class A1+ (of GBP 400,000) by approximately 0.1%.

Deloitte GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, in its capacity as trustee
of the ESTATE UK-3 transaction, today notified pbb that in their view
doubts exist as to whether the loss allocation intended by pbb is
justified, and that the Trustee will appoint an Expert, in accordance with
the terms of the ESTATE UK-3 transaction, who will decide on whether the
loss allocation is in fact justified.

In the event of the loss allocation being fully or partially unjustified,
pbb would have to bear the losses to that extent. In pbb's opinion, the
conditions for the planned allocation of losses have been met.

The prospectus for the ESTATE UK-3 transaction is available on pbb's
