- Philipp Kreibohm leaves the Management Board with effect from 31 March 2019 and stands for election to the Supervisory Board at the Annual General Meeting on 19 June 2019

Berlin, 11 February 2019 - At its meeting today, the Supervisory Board of home24 SE ("home24", "the Company") prematurely extended the appointment of Management Board member Johannes Schaback by a further two years. Johannes Schaback joined the home24 Management Board last year and has since been responsible for the Tech, Product and Data divisions.

Founder and member of the Management Board Philipp Kreibohm plans to join the Company's Supervisory Board and will therefore leave the Management Board with effect from 31 March 2019. After a shortened cooling-off period, Philipp Kreibohm will stand for election to the Supervisory Board at the Company's Annual General Meeting on 19 June 2019, which will be supported by major shareholder Rocket Internet, among others. His current responsibilities for Human Resources, Legal Affairs and Business Development will be split between the three Co-CEOs Marc Appelhoff, Christoph Cordes and Johannes Schaback.

"Philipp Kreibohm has been a major driving force behind home24's development into the leading online platform for home & living in continental Europe and Brazil right from the start. For this he deserves great recognition and, above all, our special thanks" says Lothar Lanz, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of home24. "Philipp Kreibohm has played a decisive role in shaping the Company through his expertise and entrepreneurial spirit. We are delighted that he is standing for election to the Supervisory Board at the Annual General Meeting and would very much welcome it if his extensive expertise were to remain with the Company in this way. We see this change as a sign of the maturation of the Company, which has been listed on the stock exchange since last year. We are also delighted to be able to continue our extremely successful collaboration with Johannes Schaback. Johannes Schaback will continue to advance home24 as one of the leading tech experts and entrepreneurs".

For personal reasons, Alexander Samwer will not stand for re-election to the Supervisory Board after his current term of office has expired. Christian Senitz has left the Supervisory Board of home24 at the end of January due to an upcoming professional reorientation.

Following the departure of Christian Senitz, the Supervisory Board of home24 now has five members. The Supervisory Board does not intend to fill the sixth seat, but will propose to the Annual General Meeting in June that the Supervisory Board be reduced to five members. Lothar Lanz remains Chairman of the Supervisory Board; the other members are Magnus Agervald, Verena Mohaupt, Francesco Danesi, and - until the Annual General Meeting - Alexander Samwer.

"We would like to express our special thanks to Alexander Samwer and Christian Senitz for their long, trusting and successful cooperation," says Lothar Lanz, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of home24. "Both have provided home24 with significant support through their constructive contributions and have always shared their experience and expertise in dialogue with the Supervisory Board and Management Board."
