Form Announcement

Jersey - 6 May 2009.  Atrium  European  Real  Estate  (ATX:  ATR),   one  of  the leading real estate companies focused on shopping centre investment,  management and  development  in  Central  and  Eastern   Europe,  announces  that    it    has repurchased EUR60 million of the subordinated  convertible  bonds  issued  by the Company on  1   August  2008  for  an  aggregate  consideration  of EUR58,350,000, representing an approximate 11.6% yield to maturity.

The repurchases were completed on 6 May 2009 and their acquisition   is  in  line with the Company's stated strategy of  purchasing  its   own  debt  in  order  to provide Atrium with a more efficient capitalisation.    The  repurchase  of  this debt  also  removes  a   significant  proportion  of  a  potential  future  stock overhang.

The convertible bonds were repurchased by the Company from Meinl   bank  AG (EUR40 million face value) and JP Morgan Chase Bank, National  Association, acting  as escrow agent for Meinl Bank AG (EUR20 million face value).
