Highlights

* Continued progress in executing the Group's strategy to focus the portfolio
  towards prime shopping centres in Poland and the Czech Republic:
  - signed an agreement to acquire Atrium's fifth asset in Warsaw, King Cross
  shopping centre, for EUR43m with completion expected in Q2 2019. This is a
  well-connected and established retail destination with a diverse tenant mix
  including strong national and international tenants
  - monetised 13% of the land bank with the completion of a EUR28m land disposal
  in Gdansk, Poland at around book value
* 1.4% improvement in EPRA like-for-like net rental income ("NRI") excluding
  Russia or 0.2% growth across the portfolio
* Higher quality cash flow generated from acquisitions and the opening of three
  extensions in Warsaw in Q4 2018 offset the impact from disposals including the
  exit from Hungary and Romania, resulting in a 1.0% increase in NRI excluding
  Russia
* EBITDA stable at EUR41m while the EBITDA margin remained strong at 89% (Q1
  2018: 88%)
* LFL NRI in Russia decreased by 2.9% mainly as a result of specific tenants
  exiting the market and subsequent retenanting initiatives
* Balance sheet well positioned to support growth with EUR54m cash and
  equivalents, EUR257m unutilized revolving credit facility and a net LTV of
  37.6%.

Liad Barzilai, Chief Executive Officer of Atrium Group, commented:
"During the first quarter we began to see the new high quality income flowing
through from the extensions we opened at Atrium's three prime retail
destinations in Warsaw at the end of last year which, coupled with the income
from acquisitions, helped to offset the loss of income from our disposal
programme. We have also made further significant progress with our portfolio
repositioning by monetising 13% of the Company's land bank through the sale of a
land parcel in Gdansk and by agreeing to the acquisition of a well located local
shopping centre in Warsaw. We continue to work on strengthening our portfolio
through redevelopments and asset rotation and have a strong balance sheet to
support the execution of our strategy."
