Hamburg, 26 March 2020 – The global coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions on public life associated with it will have an impact on the future net assets and the financial and earnings position of Bijou Brigitte. 
 
The duration of the pandemic and its impact on the economic development of the individual countries cannot be quantified at this time.

The magnitude of the impact largely depends on the duration of store closures in the affected countries. 
 
Based on both the positive 2019 financial year and the unforeseeable impact of the coronavirus pandemic on future business, the Management Board and Supervisory Board have decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting (planned for 23 June 2020) that a dividend of EUR 1.50 per share be paid for the 2019 financial year (previous year: EUR 3.00). This proposal is subject to possible adjustments depending on the development of the coronavirus crisis.
 
The consolidated and annual financial statements of Bijou Brigitte modische Accessoires AG for the 2019 financial year will be published in April 2020.
