("Atrium")

DECLARATION OF SPECIAL DIVIDEND

Ad hoc announcement - Jersey, 15 September 2016. Atrium European Real Estate
Limited (VSE/ Euronext: ATRS) (the "Company" and together with its subsidiaries,
the "Group"), a leading owner, operator and developer 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 14 euro cents per ordinary share  representing a return
of an aggregate EUR52.7 million to shareholders ("Shareholders") of the Company.


The payment of the Special Dividend reflects the Board's continuing confidence
in the prospects of the Group, and, following the sale of non-core assets in the
year to date 2016, the Company's strong cash position and low leverage.
Following the payment of the Special Dividend the Company will still have
sufficient cash 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 on 30 September 2016 to Shareholders on the
register as at 23 September 2016, with an ex-dividend date of 22 September 2016.
The final payments of the 2016 regular dividend are scheduled to be paid in
September and December this year, as approved in November 2015.  As usual, the
terms of the regular annual dividend for 2017 will be reviewed by the Board in
November 2016 and announced with the Company's third quarter results.
