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 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.
