   ATRIUM EXITS ROMANIA WITH EUR95 MILLION AGREEMENT TO SELL ATRIUM MILITARI
             Sale represents a premium of 9% to year end book value

Ad hoc announcement - Jersey, 27 April 2018. Atrium European Real Estate Limited
(VSE/ Euronext: ATRS) ("Atrium" or the "Company" and together with its
subsidiaries, the "Group"), a leading owner, operator and redeveloper of
shopping centres and retail real estate in Central and Eastern Europe, announces
that it has entered into an agreement to sell Atrium Militari shopping centre in
Bucharest, Romania to MAS Real Estate Inc., for EUR95 million representing a 9%
premium to book value on 31 December 2017. The transaction is subject to the
fulfilment of certain conditions precedent, which are expected to be finalised
by the end of the third quarter of 2018.

The divestment of the Company's only shopping centre in Romania forms part of
Atrium's ongoing strategy of rebalancing its portfolio both geographically,
towards Poland and the Czech Republic, Central Europe's strongest economies, and
by asset class towards larger scale, well-established shopping centres in strong
urban locations which dominate their catchment areas.

The sale follows shortly after the Company's recent announcement that it had
sold 19 properties, which represented substantially all of its assets in Hungary
and completed its portfolio repositioning in the Czech Republic with the sale of
its stake in a shopping centre in Brno, Czech Republic. Earlier this month,
Atrium also signed an agreement for the disposal of Atrium Saratov in Slovakia
for EUR10.3 million, 9% above book value, which it expects to complete shortly.

As a result of these sales, Atrium's Polish and Czech portfolios will increase
to 81% of its total standing investments by value.

Liad Barzilai, Chief Executive Officer of Atrium Group, commented: "The disposal
of Atrium Militari, our only Romanian asset, represents another important step
in our strategy of reweighting our portfolio towards high quality retail and
leisure centres in strong urban locations at the heart of their local
communities. This sale, together with our recent sales in Hungary, leaves us
with an increased weighting towards Poland and the Czech Republic, where we have
significant critical mass, and are better placed to benefit from leveraging
efficiencies and economies of scale".
