(Official Notice)
On 24 July 2018 the board of directors of the Company declared an interim dividend of 11.1 pence per share (?Dividend?) for the six month period ended 30 June 2018. The Dividend is payable on Monday, 8 October 2018 to shareholders on the register at the close of business on Friday, 31 August 2018.



The Dividend will be subject to a 20% UK withholding tax unless exemptions apply and will be treated as a Property Income Distribution (?PID?). The Dividend Reinvestment Plan (?DRIP?) will be available for those shareholders who wish to receive the Dividend in the form of shares. The Dividend should be regarded as a ?foreign dividend? for SA income and SA dividend tax purposes.



Shareholders receiving the Dividend in cash

The Company confirms that the South African Rand exchange rate for the Dividend will be ZAR18.8005 to GBP1 calculated at the close of business on Monday, 20 August 2018. The Dividend is payable in South African Rand to SA Shareholders. Shareholders who do not elect the DRIP will be paid as follows:



UK Shareholders (GBP pence) - SA Shareholders (ZAR cents)

* Gross amount of PID: 11.10 - 208.68555

* Less 20% UK withholding tax/20% SA dividends tax: 2.22 - 41.73711

* Net PID dividend payable: 8.88 - 166.94844



Shareholders electing the DRIP

SA Shareholders electing the DRIP should note that, in respect of fractional entitlements that may arise, all allocations of shares will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, and any residual amounts that are not used to reinvest in shares (as a result of rounding down) will be paid out to these SA Shareholders in cash.



It is the Company?s understanding that the residual cash paid to SA Shareholders who have made DRIP elections would already have been taxed prior to the calculation of the number of shares and any residual cash owing to such SA Shareholders. Accordingly, no further tax should be payable on the cash paid to SA Shareholders as a result of any fractional entitlements.

On 18 April 2018, the Board of Hammerson announced the withdrawal of its recommendation to Hammerson shareholders to vote in favour of the previously announced all-share offer for Intu Properties plc (?Intu?) (the ?Intu Acquisition?) and detailed the reasons for its withdrawal.



Without the recommendation of the Hammerson Board, the Company believes it is unlikely that Hammerson shareholders would support the Intu Acquisition, which is a condition to completion of the transaction. In addition, Hammerson confirms that it will not exercise any rights it may have to implement the Intu Acquisition by way of a contractual takeover offer.



On 25 April 2018, the Board of Intu announced:

1. its withdrawal of its recommendation of the Intu Acquisition;

2. that it will not proceed with the scheme of arrangement; and

3. that it has consented to the release of Hammerson from its obligation to proceed with the Intu Acquisition.



Further to that announcement and the release of this announcement, the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (the ?Panel?) has confirmed that: (a) Hammerson will be released from its obligations under Rule 2.7(b) and Rule 24.1 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the ?Code?) to proceed with the Intu Acquisition; and (b) the offer period has now ended and the Intu Acquisition has lapsed. As a result, Hammerson will not be convening a Hammerson shareholder meeting to consider the Intu Acquisition. Hammerson will, except with the consent of the Panel, be bound by the restrictions contained in Rule 35 of the Code for a period of 12 months from the date of this Announcement.

(Official Notice)
The Board of Hammerson notes the announcement made by Kl?pierre that it does not intend to make an offer for Hammerson and that it is consequently bound by the restrictions under Rule 2.8 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code").



The Board of Hammerson welcomes the clarification provided by the announcement. The Board continues to believe that Kl?pierre's proposal, which the Board carefully considered following a meeting between David Tyler and Jean-Marc Jestin, very significantly undervalued Hammerson.



Following the announcement of the Company?s 2017 results, the approach by Kl?pierre, and the Q1 2018 Business Update, Hammerson has engaged intensively with its shareholders and will continue to do so.
11-Apr-2018
(Official Notice)
The Board of Hammerson announces that the Company has received a revised proposal from Kl?pierre relating to a possible acquisition of the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Hammerson (the ?Revised Proposal?). The Revised Proposal is 635 pence per Hammerson share, comprising 50% in new Kl?pierre shares and 50% in cash.



The Revised Proposal was conveyed in a meeting between David Tyler, Chairman of Hammerson, and the Chairman of the Executive Board of Kl?pierre, Jean-Marc Jestin, on the evening of 9 April 2018.



The Revised Proposal represents only a marginal increase to Kl?pierre's unsolicited proposal of 615 pence made on 8 March 2018, which Hammerson's Board unanimously rejected on the basis that it very significantly undervalued Hammerson, its track record of delivery, the quality of its portfolio, its market positions, and the opportunities it has for future value creation. Accordingly, the Board of Hammerson, having assessed the Revised Proposal with its advisers, believes it is not at a price that justifies further engagement with Kl?pierre and has unanimously rejected it. The Board remains open to discuss any proposal from Kl?pierre which properly reflects the value of the Company.



Shareholders are strongly advised to take no action.

Hammerson announced that, together with its 50/50 joint venture partner Allianz, it has arranged a EUR625 million seven-year term loan (Hammerson?s share EUR312.5 million) secured on Ireland?s pre-eminent shopping and leisure destination, Dundrum Town Centre (?Dundrum?).



BNP Paribas and DekaBank acted as lead arrangers and Allianz Real Estate acted on behalf of a number of Allianz companies.



The facility is secured on Dundrum at a conservative leverage below 40%. The non-recourse facility is repayable in full at maturity in September 2024 and the interest cost is expected to be less than 2% (following fixing of the underlying reference swap rate).



Dundrum, valued at more than EUR1,500 million, is the largest asset in a portfolio which Hammerson and Allianz invested in during October 2015 as part of a long term investment strategy in Ireland. Located in the affluent and densely populated southern Dublin catchment, Dundrum is the capital city?s leading retail destination providing over 120 shops, 38 restaurants, a 12-screen cinema and 3,400 car park spaces. The 123,800 m(2) centre is 99% occupied and generates total passing rent of circa EUR66 million per annum. Dundrum is differentiated by its modern large-format flagship stores which position it to benefit from the current polarisation trends in retail and attract international brands entering Ireland.



Hammerson?s share of net proceeds will be used to reduce drawings under its revolving credit facilities and group LTV will be unchanged. The majority of Hammerson?s financing continues to be on an unsecured basis. Post completion of this facility the ratio of secured debt to net tangible assets (which includes the Group?s share of interests in Premium Outlets) will be 8%, well below the 50% covenant restriction in the Group?s unsecured debt. The Group?s percentage of fixed rate debt will increase on a pro forma basis from 76% at 30 June 2017 to 83% and the foreign exchange hedge of euro-denominated liabilities to euro-denominated assets of 80% at 30 June 2017 will remain unchanged.

Hammerson plc announces the successful syndication and signing of a GBP360 million unsecured Revolving Credit Facility (?RCF?) at an initial margin of 90 basis points with a syndicate of fourteen international banks. The facility has a maturity of five years which may be extended to a maximum of seven years.



This new facility will refinance an existing GBP175 million RCF maturing in April 2018. This existing facility featured a margin of 150 basis points, so the new facility will result in a reduced margin of 60 basis points. The existing facility will be cancelled resulting in a net increase of GBP185 million of available bank facilities and increasing total bank facilities to GBP1.2 billion. The commercial terms of the new facility are the same as Hammerson?s two other RCFs (a GBP415 million RCF signed in April 2015 and a GBP420 million RCF signed in April 2016) and include Hammerson's standard unsecured financial covenants.



This transaction is the latest in a sequence of recent transactions by Hammerson reinforcing the strong financial position of the group and extending the maturity of debt. The GBP400 million private placement funded in January and both the GBP415 million and GBP420 million RCFs were extended by one year earlier this month. The EUR1.5 billion short-term facility raised for the acquisitions in Ireland and Birmingham has now been fully repaid. This combination of transactions extends the weighted average maturity of debt from 5.5 years at 31 December 2016 to 6.4 years on a pro forma basis.



MUFG acted as Coordinator for the facility and Deutsche Bank was appointed as Facility Agent. BNP Paribas, First Commercial Bank Ltd., ICBC (London) plc, J.P.

The Record Date for both UK Shareholders and SA Shareholders is at the close of business on Friday, 17 March 2017. The Dividend should be regarded as a ?foreign dividend? for SA income and SA dividend tax purposes.



Shareholders receiving the Dividend in cash

The Company confirms that the South African Rand exchange rate for the Dividend will be ZAR 15.9120 to GBP 1. The Dividend is payable in South African Rand to SA Shareholders. Accordingly, shareholders who do not elect the DRIP will be paid as follows:

* Less 20% UK withholding tax/20% SA dividends tax: 0.98p - 1 559.3760 cents

It is the Company?s understanding that the residual cash paid to SA Shareholders who have made DRIP elections would already have been taxed prior to the calculation of the number of shares and any residual cash owing to such SA Shareholders. Accordingly, no further tax should be payable on the cash paid to SA Shareholders as a result of any fractional entitlements.
