GUCCI GROUP N.V.
As a result of the completion by Pinault -Printemps-Redoute S.A. of the initial tender
(that expired at 9 AM, New York time on April 29, 2004) in connection with its offer to
purchase all of the outstanding common shares of Gucci Group, which it already did
not own, fewer than 600,000 Gucci common shares remain publicly held.
Thus, The New York Stock Exchange announced Friday that trading in the common
shares of Gucci Group N.V. – ticker symbol GUC – would be suspended.
The symbol has changed to GUCG. The ratio & CUSIP remain unchanged. The
program now trades on the OTC.
