Commenting on the results, Rachel Lavine, CEO of Atrium European Real Estate,
said:  "Against a continued backdrop of economic uncertainty we performed well,
posting 6.9% growth in like-for-like net rental income growth as well as
increased profitability; driven primarily by the impact of our 2011 acquisitions
and a strong performance in Russia.  These results underpin our confidence in
our ability to create value, although the ongoing issues in the Eurozone and
their resultant impact on our areas of operation mean that we must continue to
exercise caution when implementing our strategy for growth both in terms of
acquisition and development."
