St Helier Jersey / Channel Islands – Atrium European Real Estate Limited
(“Atrium”)

DECLARATION OF SPECIAL DIVIDEND

Ad hoc announcement – Jersey, 9. June 2017. Atrium European Real Estate Limited (VSE/ Euronext: ATRS) (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, is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has approved the payment of a special dividend (the “Special Dividend”) of EUR0.14 per ordinary share, representing an aggregate return to shareholders of the Company of approx. EUR52.8 million.

The payment of the Special Dividend reflects the Board’s continuing confidence in the Group’s prospects, strong cash position and low leverage. Following the payment of the Special Dividend the Company retains adequate liquidity and financial flexibility to complete its current anticipated redevelopment and asset improvement programme and to make selective acquisitions, should they arise.

The Special Dividend will be paid (as a capital repayment) on 30 June 2017 to shareholders on the register as at 23 June 2017, with an ex-dividend date of 22 June 2017, at the same time as and in addition to the regular quarterly dividend.

The final payments of the 2017 regular dividend are scheduled to be paid in September and December this year, as approved in November 2016. As usual, the terms of the regular annual dividend for 2018 will be reviewed by the Board in November 2017 and announced with the Company’s third quarter trading update.
