THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION

Operational and trading update

Hammerson ("the Company") today announces that, assuming no further periods of covid-related disruption in December, it now expects that FY21 adjusted earnings will be no less than £60m.  This is due to an improved outlook for net rental income, principally from stronger collections rates, and a better-than-expected performance from Value Retail.

Footfall in the UK and Ireland currently stands at c.90% of the comparable period in 2019, and France around 85%1.  Sales continue to show encouraging trends, reflecting higher spend per visit and larger basket sizes, particularly in the UK where October sales were 6% higher than 2019.

Rent collection rates continue to improve. Q4 21 collections at the end of November stood at 86% for the Group, including a significant improvement in France to 83% since our last update.  The UK is at 89% and Ireland 83%.  For FY21, the Group collection rate is currently 84%; for FY20 96%.

The announcement above has also been released on the SENS system of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and Euronext Dublin.
