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%.

Hammerson has its primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and secondary inward listings on the
Johannesburg Stock Exchange and Euronext Dublin.
