  • Initial cash-flow guidance for full-year 2017 raised to at least €2.45 from €2.35–2.40 range.

Jean-Marc Jestin, Chairman of the Klépierre Executive Board, commented, “During this first half of the year, we continued to deliver strong cash flow growth, significantly exceeding our initial forecast, as we leveraged improved economic conditions in Europe with the highest level of consumer confidence in a decade. Our leasing activity was marked by strong deal flow with top international retailers, which demonstrates the attractiveness of our pan-European portfolio. This translated into improved key operational performance indicators, in particular high reversion on new leases and relets, and occupancy increase. We are also very proud to have delivered with great success two exceptional openings in Utrecht at Hoog Catharijne and in Paris at Val d’Europe. All these achievements led us to raise our guidance for 2017. Further down the road, in March 2018, we will deliver Prado in Marseille. Its iconic architecture and high-end retail mix are another illustration of our ambition to ensure that the future of retail happen in our malls.”
