the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 on market abuse (market abuse regulation -
MAR) Ad-hoc: Rocket Internet SE Announces a Loss for the Period of EUR 617
Million Predominantly as a Result of Special Items Berlin, Germany, September 1, 2016 - Rocket Internet SE ('Rocket Internet'
or the 'Company') (ISIN DE000A12UKK6) announced a first half 2016
consolidated loss of EUR 617 million. The result was primarily driven by
impairments at Global Fashion Group S.A. ('GFG'). The financing round
already announced in April 2016 resulted in goodwill and intangible asset
write-offs at GFG subsidiaries. In total, GFG contributed negative EUR 383
million to Rocket Internet's half year results. The result was further
impacted by special items such as impairments, fair value adjustments and
to a lesser extent positive special items. As a result of deconsolidation
of subsidiaries, consolidated revenue decreased in the first half of 2016
to EUR 29 million from EUR 71 million in the first half of 2016. Rocket
Internet will report its results for the first half of 2016 on September
22, 2016. For further information, please reference the press release. Ends Contact Rocket Internet: [email protected] Disclaimer This document contains forward-looking statements. These statements are
