Jersey, 5 December 2018. Atrium European Real Estate Limited (VSE/ Euronext:

Warsaw, Poland, which was acquired for EUR301.5 million in October.

Atrium has taken a EUR170 million secured loan with a tenor of eight years to
replace the existing bridge loan taken in October 2018. The Group's average
maturity following the refinancing is extended to 5.5 years and its cost of debt
is reduced to 3.1%.

"Wars Sawa Junior is one of the best retail assets in Poland and the acquisition
has further enhanced the quality of our portfolio and income. The loan extends
our Group maturity and decreases our overall cost of debt as we continue with
the deployment of our portfolio strategy and pro-active optimization of our
balance sheet."
