Hammerson - Investor & Analyst Site Visit


Hammerson is today hosting a site visit for investors and analysts to Bicester Village and Bullring.


The event will commence with an overview of Hammerson's investment in Value Retail, the owner of Bicester Village. Bicester Village is one of nine successful designer outlet villages operated by Value Retail, and the company will present on the trends that are driving industry-leading rental growth. At Bullring, Marty Plocica, Director of UK shopping centres, will explain how Hammerson is continually evolving and marketing the centre to grow tenants' sales and rents, and how those initiatives are being replicated across the portfolio in the UK and France.


David Atkins, Chief Executive said:


"Structural consumer trends are reshaping the retail environment. To thrive in this environment, we provide the best assets in the most compelling locations. In addition, we must manage those environments to provide an experience which encompasses a range of leisure opportunities and the most current and prestigious brands. Bicester Village and Bullring are superb examples of that strategy in action."



No material new information will be disclosed in the presentations which will form part of this visit, nor will there be any statement on current trading. Copies of all presentations will be made available on Hammerson's website:
