Comfort Arranges Rental Agreements

Retail specialist COMFORT has arranged two rental agreements for Leipziger Straße 101 in Halle,
with Brezelbäckerei Ditsch and with Warenhandelsgesellschaft mbH Görz to open a new Xbags shop.
The retail building in a prime location in downtown Halle was sold to a private investor last year
through COMFORT Berlin-Leipzig GmbH; the investor renovated the building and then rented it to
the two franchisers with long-term agreements, also through COMFORT Berlin-Leipzig GmbH.

Ditsch, which was founded in the historic city center of Mainz in 1919 by master baker Wilhelm
Ditsch, now has more than 180 branches throughout Germany – in prime locations, in shopping /
specialty-store centers and near transit hubs. The new Brezelbäckerei branch in Halle (Saale) will
exclusively offer counter service with about 40 square meters of sales space, and is expected to open
in the spring of 2010.

The bag specialist Xbags has rented an area of about 100 square meters in the property at Leipziger
Straße 101. The Xbags brand has been represented by Warenhandelsgesellschaft Görz mbH since
1992, and has more than 40 specialty bag companies in prime locations throughout Germany in
addition to its online shop. It is also slated to open in the spring of 2010.
