The highest prime shopping centre rents during Q1 2010 in Europe were achieved in the United Kingdom at ?1,900 per sq m per annum, followed by France (?1,700). The third most expensive rents were recorded in Russia (?1,500) followed by the rest of Western Europe. Due to the limited availability of prime retail space in many shopping centres across Europe, the outlook for prime rents in most European markets is stable despite the inevitable slowing of demand from occupiers over the last 18 months
M.video retail sales increased by 3.2% to 83 billion Russian rubles (RUB) with VAT in FY 2009.

The Russian real estate market has been deeply affected by the recession. An 8 percent contraction in the economy during 2009 severely affected corporate occupier demand and also dented confidence among investors who were used to double-digit returns. Developers and owners became increasingly flexible, initiating a very sharp contraction in real estate prices to reflect the new market reality; prime office values fell by over 70 percent in Moscow between mid 2008 and mid 2009, among the highest corrections in the world. Despite the improvements, the markets remain vulnerable, and any faltering in economic growth could derail the recovery
