Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation (NYSE: RL) today announced that it has commenced an underwritten secondary public offering of Class A common stock pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission on behalf of its principal stockholder, Mr. Ralph Lauren. Mr. Lauren is offering 9.0 million shares of Class A common stock and will grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1.35 million shares of Class A common stock to cover over-allotments, if any. The Company will not be selling any shares in the offering nor will it receive any proceeds from the offering.

The Company has also agreed to purchase an additional 1.0 million shares of Class A common stock from Mr. Lauren at the per share price of the public offering. All of the Class A common stock to be sold by Mr. Lauren will consist of shares received upon the conversion of an equal number of shares of Class B common stock.

Mr. Lauren is selling these shares as part of his individual asset diversification plan. Following the offering, Mr. Lauren and his family will continue to maintain a significant controlling interest in the Company. Mr. Lauren's role remains unchanged as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation.

J.P. Morgan and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are acting as joint book-runners and Deutsche Bank Securities and UBS Investment Bank are acting as co-managers for the offering. The offering will be made only by means of a prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus. Interested persons may obtain copies of the prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus from J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., Attn: Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, New York 11717, telephone: 1-866-803-9204; or Goldman, Sachs & Co., Prospectus Department, 200 West Street, New York, NY 10282, telephone: 1-866-471-2526, facsimile: 212-902-9316 or email: [email protected].

The shelf registration statement relating to the foregoing was effective upon filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor will there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
