ATRIUM COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF ARKÁDY PANKRÁC SHOPPING CENTRE IN PRAGUE FOR
EUR162 MILLION 

Ad hoc announcement - Jersey, 30 June 2015: Further to its announcement on 22
January 2015, Atrium European Real Estate Limited ("Atrium") (VSE/Euronext:
ATRS), a leading owner, operator and developer of shopping centres and retail
real estate in Central and Eastern Europe, announces that the Atrium Group has
completed the acquisition of a 75% interest in the Arkády Pankrác shopping
centre (the "Centre") in Prague, the Czech Republic for a consideration of
c.EUR162 million.  The 75% stake was acquired from Unibail-Rodamco S.E. and it
will be held in a joint venture with the Otto family, which continues to own the
remaining 25%. The transaction has been financed using existing cash resources.

Arkády Pankrác, which is well located in Prague 4, a high density residential
area that is also evolving as a business location, opened in 2008 and is a prime
modern shopping centre comprising 38,200 sqm of retail GLA, along with parking
for c.1,100 cars. With footfall increasing every year since opening and reaching
over 11 million in 2013, the Centre is well established as one of the principal
shopping centres in Prague.

The Centre is 99.5% occupied and has a weighted average lease term of over six
years. It is occupied by c.120 retail tenants comprising a strong mix of mid to
upper segment retail brands including Albert hypermarket, Inditex and LPP Group
fashion brands, a Datart electronics store, as well as H&M, New Yorker, Humanic
and Peek & Cloppenburg.

ECE will continue to manage the Centre, working closely alongside Atrium Group's
in-house team of retail experts. 

Commenting on the acquisition, Josip Kardun, CEO of Atrium Group, said: "This
acquisition marks another step towards our goal of becoming the dominant owner,
operator and developer of shopping centres and retail real estate in our core
markets within Central and Eastern Europe. With this acquisition and Palac
Pardubice we acquired in November last year, we have now added EUR245 million of
high quality retail property to our Czech income producing portfolio and,
alongside the disposal of 72 smaller retail assets, have efficiently turned
around our income profile in this target geography."
