  Arbitration ruling regarding One-Time Payment of EUR98 Million in Spain

Herzogenaurach, Germany, 17 June 2011  -  The  Sportlifestyle  company  PUMA  AG
herewith declares that the arbitration ruling  of  2  June  2010,  allowing  the
vesting of all PUMA trademark rights in Spain to PUMA in  exchange  for  a  one-
time payment of 98 million Euros, has been repealed by  the  District  Court  of
Madrid. Its  verdict  of  14  June  2011  is  a  direct  consequence  of  PUMA´s
successful appeal against the arbitration ruling.

The verdict means that PUMA is no longer bound to make the one-time  payment  of
98 million Euros to Estudio 2000 S.A., the former Spanish  licensee  and  holder
of the  remaining  rights.  PUMA  will  continue  its  efforts  in  uniting  all
remaining Spanish PUMA trademarks and is considering its next steps  to  achieve
this aim.

Pursuant to §15 WpHG PUMA herewith informs the  financial  markets  that  PUMA´s
payment obligation has been repealed. This ad hoc release  does  not  constitute
an offer to sell nor is it a solicitation to buy any securities.
