Update to Recommended Cash Acquisition by Scheme of Arrangement and Go-Shop

Jersey, 10 September 2019 - Following the announcements made by Atrium European
Real Estate Limited (VSE/Euronext: ATRS) ("Atrium" or the "Company"), on 23 July
and 29 August 2019, the Independent Committee of the Board of Directors of
Atrium (the "Independent Committee") recognised that minority shareholders would
wish to express their opinions in relation to the recommended all cash
acquisition (the "Acquisition") and retained leading advisory firm Boudicca
Proxy Consultants ("Boudicca") to evaluate the views of shareholders.

Boudicca has been proactively engaging with minority shareholders of Atrium
since the beginning of August and has identified, contacted and spoken with over
92% of the minorities. Boudicca has received encouraging feedback from investors
spoken with thus far.

Boudicca is aware that a relatively small component of the minority shareholder
base has publicly voiced concerns regarding, amongst others, the Gazit offer

However, Boudicca is also aware that most of the minority shareholder base are
not able to publicly announce their support for the Gazit offer.

To provide the broader minority shareholder base with a public voice, Boudicca
has been conducting an anonymised survey since Wednesday 4 September. Thus far,
Boudicca has already obtained indicative responses to date from shareholders
representing 19.79% of the Free Float. Of this group of respondents, 92% have
indicated that, in the absence of a superior offer during the Go-shop period,
they would support the Gazit Offer, or that they are finalising their decision
to this effect.

The Independent Committee welcomes additional investor responses to the
Company's anonymous survey and, should investors have any questions, please
contact Boudicca on +44 (0) 207 099 2075. Boudicca's lead contacts - Sheryl
Cuisia, Managing Director of Boudicca; Scott Fulton, IR Consultant; and Jonathan
Harker, Director of Stewardship - are available between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m.
(London time) Monday to Friday. Alternatively, enquiries can be emailed to [].
