•The Board of Directors recommends shareholders not to accept the offer from Procastor.

•Strong belief in the company as a stand-alone alternative creating shareholder value through existing business model.

•Multiple growth opportunities expected to secure strong long term growth in profits and cash flow.

•New financial target stating that EBIT shall amount to at least SEK 450 million in 2010 (SEK 242 million in 2006) and increase at an average annual rate of at least 15 percent in the following five-year period.

•New dividend policy to distribute at least 75 per cent of net income to shareholders.

Statement from Lennart Björk, Chairman of the Board: “The Board of Directors believes strongly in the future development of Gant as a stand alone company. The current business model, using franchisees in the establishment of new and the development of existing markets, has proven itself again and again."

"Gant's track record in delivering profits, cash flow and shareholder returns, in combination with exciting growth prospects are the basis for our recommendation to shareholders to say no to Procastor's offer and support Gant as an independent company delivering value to all shareholders.”
