                PUMA's CEO to step down at the end of March 2013

Herzogenaurach, Germany, 12 December 2012 - The Administrative Board of PUMA  SE
announced today that, by mutual agreement, Franz Koch will step  down  from  his
position as CEO of PUMA and member of the Group Executive Committee of  PPR  SA,

the main shareholder of PUMA SE, at the end of March 2013.

Jochen Zeitz' resignation as Administrative Board Chairman  as  of  December  1,
2012 marks the end of  a  chapter  in  the  history  of  PUMA.  The  company  is
therefore entering a new phase in  its  development  and  is  changing  its  top
management structure to take on those challenges.

Franz Koch will remain CEO of PUMA until the end of March,  and  work  in  close
collaboration with the new Chairman of the Administrative  Board,  Jean-François
Palus, also PPR Group Managing Director, in  order  to  secure  PUMA's  on-going
operational transformation and generate profitable growth.
