Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, October 22, 2015.

The family trust Hornbach Familien-Treuhandgesellschaft mbH, Annweiler,
today decided to place one million non-par ordinary bearer shares in

the principal shareholder in the KGaA today.

The private placement of 6.25% of the share capital in Hornbach Holding AG

this transaction, the family trust is selling half of the two million
shares it bought back from the former strategic partner Kingfisher plc at
the end of March 2014. It was further announced that the family trust had
undertaken within the private placement to comply with a customary market
lock-up period of three months. Upon completion of the secondary placement,
the family will hold 43.75% of the share capital of Euro 48 million in the
KGaA, which is divided into 16 million listed non-par ordinary bearer
