“We herewith notify pursuant to sec. 25a para. 1 WpHG that on 15 June 2012 by aggregating

  • voting rights from common shares, we are enabled under certain circumstances to indirectly acquire on the basis of a directly held instrument pursuant to sec. 25a para. 1 sentence 1 WpHG, and
  • voting rights held by us pursuant to sec. 21 WpHG

we held/would have held a voting rights proportion of 65.93% (equals: 46,413,470 voting rights) in HUGO BOSS AG calculated from the total amount of voting rights in HUGO BOSS AG in the amount of 70,400,000. As per this date we would have fallen below the threshold of 75% of voting rights.

In detail,

  • our voting rights proportion pursuant to sec. 21 WpHG amounts to 0.37% (equals: 257,158 voting rights), and
  • our voting rights proportion indirectly acquirable on the basis of a directly held in-strument pursuant to sec. 25a para. 1 sentence 1 WpHG amounts to 65.56% (equals: 46,156,312 voting rights).

The instrument held by us relates to a right of first offer (Recht zur Abgabe eines ersten An-gebots) contained in a Shareholders Agreement, which was signed in 2007 and ends on 02 August 2017, between our company and ZETA FINANCE S.A. as minority shareholders and Red & Black Holdco S.à r.l. and Red & Black Holdco 2 S.à r.l. as majority shareholders of the holding company Red & Black Topco S.à r.l. ("Topco").

The right of first offer does not directly relate to shares in HUGO BOSS AG but does only enable us – subject to the majority shareholders of Topco intending to sell their controlling stake in Topco or its immediate subsidiary and under certain other conditions and only in certain limited circumstances – to make an offer and, if the majority shareholders accept such offer, to acquire the majority of the shares in Topco or such subsidiary which in turn – among other assets – currently indirectly holds a voting rights proportion of 65.56% (equals: 46,156,312 voting rights).”
