Further to the Amanzoe acquisition, the seller and the purchasers agreed that Amanzoe will

undertake to purchase an area that includes 20 prime plots in Kilada Hills project of DCI for a

consideration of €10 million to build holiday homes and facilities destined for the exclusive

servicing of Amanzoe customers and villa owners. The consideration will be paid subject to

completion of customary diligence on the plots and commencement of the development

works of Jack Nicklaus Signature 18-holes golf course with Golf Club and Beach Club. Namely

half of the consideration will be paid by the start of construction works and the rest in

tranches, in line with the construction phases of the golf course.

The Chief Executive Officer of Grivalia Properties REIC and Chairman of the Board of

Directors of Grivalia Hospitality, George Chryssikos stated:

"Following the recent new successful 60 million-euro capital increase in Grivalia Hospitality,

the acquisition of such an iconic project, the 4th in Greece and the 2nd fully operational,

reiterates our commitment to our goal of making Grivalia Hospitality the no1 investment

platform in high quality touristic real estate properties in Greece.

Amanzoe's growth strategy will focus on one hand, on further developing and selling villas

and on the other hand, on expanding the hotel's season for the entire year, taking advantage

of the synergies that will be created also with the Kilada Hills golf course".

Miltos Kambourides, founder and CEO of Dolphin Capital, stated:

"Amanzoe has been the last 6 years a landmark for high quality tourism not only for Greece

but also for the entire Mediterranean. We are excited to be cooperating with Grivalia and we

are confident that both Amanzoe and the development of Kilada Hills will continue to serve

as a benchmark for their aesthetic approach and offered services".
