ATRIUM SELLS A LAND PLOT IN TURKEY FOR EUR47M CONSIDERATION

Ad hoc announcement - Jersey, 24 April 2014: Atrium European Real Estate Limited
("Atrium" or the "Group" ") (VSE/Euronext: ATRS), a leading owner, operator and
developer of retail real estate and shopping centres in Central and Eastern
Europe, announces the sale of its Turkish land plot situated on Istanbul's TEM
highway for a total consideration of EUR47.0m. The transaction represents a net
loss of EUR17.6m to value at 31 December 2013.

The sale is in line with Atrium's strategy of opportunistic sales of non-core
development properties, in order to both improve balance sheet efficiency and
monetise the Group's non-core landbank.

Commenting on the sale, Rachel Lavine, CEO of Atrium, said: "Today's
announcement marks further progress in our strategy of focusing the Group's
portfolio on the strongest and most stable economies in Central and Eastern
Europe and decreasing our landbank. It also improves the efficiency of Atrium's
balance sheet and helps us with our longer term aim of increasing the weighting
of our total portfolio towards income producing standing investments through
opportunistic divestment of our non-core landbank."
