RECOMMENDED CASH OFFER

for

MOSS BROS GROUP PLC

by

BRIGADIER ACQUISITION COMPANY LIMITED

Scheme becomes Effective

On 12 March 2020, the Board of Moss Bros Group PLC ("Moss Bros") and the Board of Brigadier Acquisition Company Limited ("Bidco") announced under Rule 2.7 of the Code that they had reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer to be made by Bidco to acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Moss Bros (the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition is being implemented by means of a Court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement between Moss Bros and the Scheme Shareholders under Part 26 of the Companies Act (the "Scheme"). Full details of the Acquisition are set out in the Scheme Document.

On 8 June 2020, Moss Bros and Bidco announced that the High Court of Justice in England and Wales had sanctioned the Scheme at the Court Hearing held earlier that day.

Moss Bros and Bidco are pleased to announce that, following delivery of the Court Order sanctioning the Scheme to the Registrar of Companies yesterday, the Scheme has now become Effective in accordance with its terms and conditions, and the entire issued share capital of Moss Bros is now owned by Bidco.

Under the terms of the Scheme, holders of Scheme Shares on the register of members of Moss Bros at the Scheme Record Time (6:00 p.m. (London time) on 9 June 2020) will be entitled to receive twenty two pence for each Scheme Share held. Settlement of the consideration to which any Scheme Shareholder is entitled will be effected by way of the despatch of cheques or the crediting of CREST accounts (for Scheme Shareholders holding Scheme Shares in certificated form and in uncertificated form, respectively) as soon as practicable and in any event not later than 14 days after today's date (25 June 2020).

Dealings in Moss Bros Shares were suspended with effect from 7:30 a.m. (London time) yesterday. Applications have been made to the FCA and the London Stock Exchange in relation to the delisting of Moss Bros Shares from the Official List and the cancellation of the admission to trading of Moss Bros Shares on the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange, which are expected to take place at 8:00 a.m. (London time) on 12 June 2020.

As the Scheme has now become Effective, Moss Bros announces that its Chairman, Colin Porter and non-executive directors, Alex Gersh, Maurice Helfgott, Gareth Jones and Avis Darzins respectively, have tendered their resignations and will step down from the Board of Moss Bros effective from today's date.

Moss Bros is no longer in an "offer period" as defined in the Code and accordingly the dealing disclosure requirements previously notified to Moss Bros Shareholders no longer apply.
