Gross investments include the acquisition of a new shopping centre, Torikeskus
in Seinäjoki, for EUR 7.1 million and EUR 7.9 million for property development

acquisition of Torikeskus in Seinäjoki, one of the foremost shopping centres in
the Southern Ostrobothnia region.

The extension to the IsoKarhu shopping centre in Pori was completed during the

quarter. The conversion work on Jyväskeskus, which is in Jyväskylä, was
completed in May, which immediately boosted rental income. The combined total of
the investments in IsoKarhu and Jyväskeskus is roughly EUR 12 million.

Lippulaiva and Espoontori shopping centres in Espoo, the Myyrmanni shopping
centre in Vantaa, and the Koskikeskus shopping centre in Tampere, as well as
starting to assess the possibilities for development at Trio in Lahti and Forum
in Jyväskylä.

The Supermarkets and Shops Division invested EUR 0.6 million during the period.

in Espoo and at shopping centres in the Hervanta district of Tampere and in
Kuopio city centre.

Shares and shareholders

Directed share offering
During the period, Citycon carried out a directed share offering of shares to
Finnish and international institutional investors. The intention of the share
offering was to expand Citycon's ownership structure to support the company's
forthcoming growth and to improve the liquidity of the company's shares. The
decision by the Board of Directors to hold the share offering was based on an
authorisation granted by the annual general meeting of 15 March 2004 to increase
the share capital by means of a new issue of shares.

New shares in the amount of 10,000,000 were offered at price EUR 2.03 for

cent to Finnish investors. The new shares were the equivalent of roughly 9.4 per
cent of Citycon's share capital and voting rights conferred by shares before the
offering, and after it they were equal to roughly 8.6 per cent. The share
offering was carried out in a bookbuilding process on 13 and 14 September 2004.
The share offering was oversubscribed by a factor of 2.4.

The share offering affected Citycon's shareholders' equity and the number of its
shares and shareholders as follows:

Citycon's Board of Directors also decided to propose to the annual general
meeting to be held in spring 2005 that the 3,784,000 treasury shares held by the

Independent Auditors' Review Report to the Board of Directors of Citycon Oyj

We have reviewed the consolidated balance sheet of Citycon Oyj as of September
30, 2004, the related consolidated statements of operations for the nine-month
period ended September 30, 2004, and the related consolidated statements of cash
flows for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2004, which are included in
the Company's interim report. These consolidated financial statements are the
responsibility of the Board of Directors and the Company's management

We conducted our review in accordance with the International Standard on
Auditing applicable to review engagements. This standard requires that we plan
and perform the review to obtain moderate assurance as to whether the financial
statements are free of material misstatement. A review is limited primarily to
inquiries of company personnel and analytical procedures applied to financial
data and thus provides less assurance than an audit. We have not performed an
audit and, accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should
be made to the consolidated financial statements referred to above for them to
be in conformity with the Accounting Act and other rules and regulations
governing the preparation of interim financial statements in Finland.
