SC-U.S. Realty Increases Share Repurchase Programme to

SC-U.S. Realty (NYSE: RTY; Amsterdam AEX Stock Exchange ISIN-Code: LU0060100673) announced today that its Board of Directors has authorised an increase in the company's share repurchase programme to $200 million. Since announcing the initial $100 million repurchase programme on 5 May 1999, the company has repurchased 6,030,255 shares for an aggregate cost of $117,955,550, representing approximately 7.0% of the company's shares outstanding. Additional share repurchases are expected to be made in open market and privately negotiated transactions, depending on market prices and other conditions, and may be discontinued at any time. If the remaining approximately $82 million of the authorised $200 million programme were fully executed, at current market prices, the repurchase in aggregate would represent approximately 12.0% of the company's shares outstanding prior to launching the original $100 million programme. The 12.0% would include the 7.0% already repurchased.
