Hamburg, 5 March 2014 - With approval of the Supervisory Board of the
company, the Management Board of FAST Casualwear AG has resolved on
carrying out a second capital increase in the current financial year. The
capital increase will be carried out against cash contribution using the
authorized capital to issue 600,000 new shares at a par value of one Euro
and at a price of EUR 1.60 per share. Once today's capital increase as well
as the capital increase of February 2014 have been registered in the trade
register, the share capital will increase to EUR 13,300,000.00. The capital
increase is carried out excluding the right of subscription of the
shareholders and is subscribed solely by an unrelated individual investor.

FAST Casualwear plans to use the gross proceeds of the capital increase
amounting to EUR 960,000 to support the overall working capital and to
finance OEM orders of the company. Furthermore, the transaction will
broaden the company's shareholder base.
