The Hague -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 17, 2006 --

On March 17, 2006, Wereldhave completed the sale of an office building of 21,814 m(2) in Warwick, near Birmingham, UK. The proceeds of the sale amount to GBP 40.2 mln, which is GBP 5 mln above the book value at December 31, 2005. The office building was sold to the tenant, the British company National Grid.
