Management Board have now made substantial own investments in shares of Wolford
AG, acquiring a total of 11,860 shares in the company. The weighted average
value of the share amounts to EUR 21.08 per share. In order to underline the
close ties to the Wolford Group and the long term nature of these investments,
the Management Board team is also committed to holding these shares at least
until and including April 30, 2018. The purchase price, determined in line with
the Report of the Supervisory Board to the Annual General Meeting held on
September 17, 2015, corresponded to the average share price during the period

Management Board of the Wolford Group is committed to a sustainably oriented
corporate development. With this in mind, the Management Board team resolutely
continued the transformation process at Wolford over the past months,
