PLAZA CENTERS N.V.

SALE OF RIGA PLAZA FOR EUR93.4 MILLION

Plaza Centers N.V. ("Plaza" or the "Company"), a leading emerging markets property developer, announces that one of its subsidiaries, in which it has a 50% stake, has entered into a business sale agreement with respect to the sale of Riga Plaza shopping and entertainment centre in Riga, Latvia, to a global investment fund. The agreement reflects a value for the business of circa EUR93.4 million, which is in line with the last reported book value.

The sale of Riga Plaza is consistent with the Company's stated strategy to oversee an orderly disposal of its non-core or mature assets in order to reduce Company debt levels and to bring its development projects to fruition. The asset, which is a dominant scheme in the Latvian capital comprising 50,000 sqm of GLA, is the second biggest shopping centre to have been developed by Plaza. Riga Plaza is one of the fastest growing malls in Riga, in terms of occupancy, footfall and turnover, which has been achieved out of successful asset management activity since the centre opened during very challenging times for the global and, specifically, Latvian economy in 2009.

In line with the Company's stated restructuring plan, 75% of the net cash proceeds from Plaza's share of the sale of the business, after the repayment of the bank loan (circa EUR55 million, reflecting 100%), will be distributed to Plaza's bondholders within the quarter following the closing. The closing of the transaction is subject to several conditions precedent, all of which are expected to be fulfilled in the coming months.

Dori Keren Acting CEO at Plaza Centers, said:

"Despite the very challenging timing of the development and opening phase of Riga Plaza in 2007-2009, during the course of the significant global economic downturn, which had a significant impact on the Latvian market, Riga Plaza has been a success story for Plaza over the last number of years, having been turned into the dominant fashion oriented shopping and entertainment centre that it is today. The transaction represents another solid step forward in our strategy implementation and the ongoing disposal programme, as we seek to meet the commitments of our restructuring plan and refocus the portfolio towards more resilient and higher quality income-producing properties, especially in Serbia and Romania."
