TOM TAILOR GROUP successfully commences capital increase and generates
proceeds of EUR 29.5 million

  - Strong interest from institutional investors forms high quality order
    book

  - Discount of only 3.8 % on previous day's closing price 

  - Equity base of TOM TAILOR GROUP strengthened

Hamburg, 24 October 2013. TOM TAILOR GROUP successfully carried out its
capital increase, which was announced the previous evening. The Company
issued the new shares as part of an accelerated bookbuilding and generated
gross proceeds of about EUR 29.5 million. The shares were purchased by
institutional investors from Germany, Europe and the United States. Due to
the high demand, the order book was oversubscribed several times within
just a few hours. The issue price was EUR 16.25 per share. The resulting
discount on the XETRA closing price on 23 October 2013 (EUR 16.89) thereby
only amounted to approximately 3.8 %.

'Our cash capital increase was positively received by investors and
successfully completed in a minimum of time. We consider this to be a clear
support for our strategy to further grow with our umbrella brands TOM
TAILOR and BONITA. The gross proceeds will strengthen our equity ratio and
give us an even better basis to expand our position as leading apparell
company in the European fashion market', said Dieter Holzer, Chairman of
the Management Board (CEO) of TOM TAILOR Holding AG.

The capital increase will primarily serve to strengthen the equity ratio to
a target range of between 30% and 35% (30.09.2012: 26.1%). In addition, the
Company plans to use a proportion of the funds raised to reduce the gearing
ratio and to acquire minority shareholdings in subsidiaries.

The transaction involved the issue of 1,818,098 new no-par-value registered
shares. Shareholders' subscription rights were excluded in the process. The
share capital of TOM TAILOR Holding AG was raised from EUR 24,209,035.00 to
EUR 26,027,133.00. The capital increase is expected to be entered into the
German commercial register on 25 October 2013. The new shares are eligible
for dividends from 1 January 2013.

The new shares are estimated to be permitted for trading on the regulated
market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and to be included in the Prime
Standard, as well as for trading on the regulated market of the Hamburg
Stock Exchange on 25 October 2013. It is intended that the new shares will
be included in the current listing on 28 October 2013.

COMMERZBANK Aktiengesellschaft is acting as Sole Global Coordinator and
Sole Bookrunner in the capital increase.
