EANS-Adhoc: ESCADA AG has implemented further steps of financial restructuring

  ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro
  adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely
  responsible for the content of this announcement.
Munich, July 8, 2009 - The reduction of the company's share capital 
and the creation of a new Authorized Capital resolved by the Annual 
Shareholders' Meeting on April 28, 2009 have been entered into the 
Commercial Register on July 8, 2009 and are thus legally effective. 
The entry was preceded by settlements between the company and all 
those who had filed actions to set aside and nullify the resolutions 
taken by the Annual Shareholders' Meeting.
The legal validity of the capital reduction and further 
recapitalization measures cancel out the grounds for a disclosure 
pursuant to Section 92, para. 1 of the German Stock Corporation Act 
(losses in excess of half of the company's nominal share capital). 
The extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting scheduled for July 24, 2009 
has been cancelled as a result.
Together with the decision by the German Federal Financial 
Supervisory Authority ("BaFin" - Bundesanstalt für 
Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht), published on July 3, 2009, to issue a
waiver to the equity holders 'BO-DO Vermögensverwaltung GmbH' 
(shareholder: Wolfgang Herz) and 'MPS Erste Vermögensverwaltung GmbH'
(shareholder: Michael Herz), who together hold a stake of 24.9% in 
ESCADA AG's voting rights, releasing them pursuant to Sect. 37 of the
German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act (WpÜG - 
Wertpapiererwerbs- und Übernahmegesetz) from the requirement to make 
a mandatory tender offer to the other shareholders, further 
prerequisites for the implementation of the company's financial 
restructuring have been met.  The next step in the company's 
financial restructuring requires acceptance of the company's exchange
offer for the ESCADA bond 2005/2012 (which expires on July 31, 2009) 
at the predetermined acceptance ratio of 80% (referenced to the total
nominal value of the 200 million euros bond).
