Investor site visit
Hammerson is hosting an event for investors and analysts in Dublin, Ireland over the course of Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 September.
Day 1 will include tours of Dundrum Town Centre ("Dundrum"); Pavilions, Swords and the Ilac Centre. It will also include presentations from senior management on Hammerson's strategy in Ireland, commentary on the Irish macro backdrop and the current retail property market.
Day 2 has been organised in conjunction with the Irish bank Davy and will begin with a breakfast panel discussion on the Irish retail environment, followed by an opportunity to visit Dublin's additional retail locations, including Grafton Street, the Blanchardstown Centre and the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre.
Dundrum is an award-winning super-prime European retail and leisure destination with a modern retail environment and flagship store formats producing strong retail sales growth of 5% (6 months to 30 June 2016). In July 2016, Hammerson, together with its joint venture partner Allianz Real Estate, successfully secured the ownership of Dundrum, Ireland's pre-eminent shopping and leisure destination as part of a portfolio of market-leading retail assets in Dublin.
No statement on current trading will be made in the presentations which will form part of this visit. A copy of the presentations will be made available following the event on Hammerson's website www.hammerson.com.
This announcement has also been released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE.
