(Thomson Reuters ONE) -

Klövern and the Nordic shopping centre company Citycon have signed a letter of
intent for joint development of the shopping centre Globen Shopping, located
just south of Stockholm''s inner city. The aim is to contribute to the
realisation of the City of Stockholm''s vision for Söderstaden - a versatile and
urban city district filled with experiences.

The letter of intent encompasses the creation of a joint venture that intends to
acquire the shopping centre part of the property Arenan 2 from Klövern. The
division of ownership in the jointly owned company will be 55 per cent Citycon
and 45 per cent Klövern. Citycon will develop and implement the commercial
concept for Globen Shopping in close co-operation with Klövern and the City of
Stockholm. According to the current development plan the parties estimate a
total investment, including acquisition of part of the property Arenan 2, of SEK
2.5 - 2.8 billion.

The development of Globen Shopping is expected to mean more than doubling the
size from the present approximately 20,000 sq.m., including an increased share
of service and culture. The objective of Citycon''s and Klövern''s development
project is to transform Globen Shopping and Arenavägen from the current status
as a withdrawn backside to a bustling and vibrant street serving the local
community and visitors to the many sporting and cultural events taking place in
the adjacent arenas.

The shopping centre has the potential to become a local hub for the new district
which is to be developed in the Meatpacking District with development plans for
around 4,000 homes and 10,000 workplaces. Already today there is a wide range of
public transport options, such as metro, trams and several bus routes connecting
southern Stockholm with the inner city.

"This partnership follows Citycon''s on-going strategy to develop, own and manage

urban community shopping centres in growing cities. The development project will
bring us a unique position in one of the hottest emerging areas in Stockholm.
The goal is to create a local centre and we will use the same successful concept
as Liljeholmstorget Galleria, taking it to the next level. We are planning an
exciting mix of chains, local stores, daily services, upgraded restaurants and
cafés.  We are delighted to be partnered with such an established and successful
company as Klövern in delivering this modern and ambitious concept in a growing
area of Stockholm," explains Marcel Kokkeel, CEO of Citycon.

"Klövern looks forward to actively contributing to the development of a cohesive
urban district around one of Stockholm''s strongest brand names: Globen (The
Globe). We are happy to have found a partner - Citycon - with passion for, and
strong track record of developing attractive district centres. As a long-term
owner of office properties we are convinced that the development of Globen
Shopping will contribute to Klövern''s clear objective of meeting strong demand
for office space in the area, both existing and newly created space", says
Rutger Arnhult, CEO of Klövern.
