proportional method. For comparison purposes,  please refer to the  "Financial

3. Major events

a. Tenant sales

Q1-2013 saw  a  deterioration  in the  macro-economic  environment  in  Europe 
characterized by the impact of austerity measures, rising unemployment and low
consumer confidence.
Whereas tenant sales in  Unibail-Rodamco's shopping centres^(2) contracted  by 
-1.8% in the first three months of 2013 compared to Q1-2012, the decrease  was 
limited to -0.9% for  large shopping centres (more  than 6 million visits  per 
annum) which represent the core of  the Group's strategy. Tenant sales in  the 
Group's shopping centres continued  to outperform national sales  indices^(3), 
with a spread of +250 bps through February 2013.
In addition to the unfavourable economic climate, tenant sales were negatively
impacted by a reduced number of shopping days (no February 29 in 2013,  Easter 
in April  in  2012)  and  the exceptionally  cold  weather  throughout  Europe 
affecting fashion sales.

b. Gross Rental Income^(1) as of March 31, 2013

Gross Rental Income (GRI) of the  shopping centre division amounted to  €288.3 
Mn for the first three  months of 2013, an increase  of +6.0% compared to  the 
same period in  2012. The growth  is driven by  the Group's leasing  activity, 
shopping centre deliveries (notably Confluence, El Faro and So Ouest in  2012) 
and acquisitions net of disposals completed by the Group.

In the office sector, the GRI decreased by -5.1% compared to 2012 to €42.6  Mn 
due to divestments completed in 2012 and assets under renovation.

GRI of the Convention Exhibition and Hotels sector decreased by -9.6% to €52.8
Mn due to the traditional seasonal nature of the activity.

c. Other events

Unibail-Rodamco successfully  opened  on  March  21,  2013  the  extension  of 
shopping centre  Centrum  Cerny Most  in  Prague, Czech  Republic.  The  fully 
renovated and extended 81,340 m² GLA mall saw its footfall increase by +63% in
the first month following the extension  opening, compared to the same  period 
last year.

On February 18, 2013, the Group successfully placed a €750 Mn bond maturing in
February 2021. The 8-year bond offers a fixed coupon of 2.375%. With an  order 
book reaching over €1.9  Bn, the placement was  2.5 times oversubscribed.  Net 
proceeds of this bond were used for general corporate purposes.

d. Outlook

Despite the challenging economic environment,  in light of the Group's  strong 
fundamentals, Unibail-Rodamco confirms its  confidence in achieving  recurring 
earnings per share growth of at least 5% for 2013.
