PANTALEON Entertainment AG:
Best Launch 2016 for "The Most Beautiful Day"

- First German film at No. 1 in the cinema in 2016

- First No. 1 for writer-director-star Florian David Fitz

- Sixth Number 1 hit in a row for Matthias Schweighöfer and PANTALEON

Kronberg im Taunus / München, 01.03.2016 - "The Most Beautiful Day", the latest hit film from PANTALEON Entertainment AG
(XETRA: PAL, ISIN: DE000A12UPJ7), has fulfilled the high expectations put in it, launching at No. 1 on German box-office
charts. The PANTALEON production, written and directed by star Florian David Fitz and distributed by Warner Bros., sold
340 000 tickets on 650 screens in Germany, more than any other film this weekend. Adding in previews, the film has
already been seen by almost 400 000 movie-goers in the first days of release. The PANTALEON production is the first
German film to top the box-office charts this year.

"The Most Beautiful Day" is also the first number 1 hit for Florian David Fitz, who wrote, directed and co-starred in
the film for PANTALEON. For his co-star Matthias Schweighöfer, it is the sixth PANTALEON production in a row, to debut
at No. 1.

"The Most Beautiful Day" managed to take the top spot despite strong competition from Marvel Comics adaptation
"Deadpool" starring Ryan Reynolds, which it dethroned from No. 1 in its third week in release. "Deadpool" is the most
successful release for 20th Century Fox since "Avatar" in December 2009, and continued to be the most successful film in
the United States and several other major markets worldwide. In Germany, however, the superhero blockbuster had to take
second place to PANTALEON's production.

"We're very proud of this No. 1 hit, which we see as a clear confirmation of our successful strategy," says PANTALEON
Entertainment AG CEO Dan Maag. "Clear concepts, a clear focus on the target group and a wide and aggressive marketing
campaign together with our longstanding partner Warner Bros. even allows us to break the global dominance of a major
worldwide Hollywood blockbuster."

With its hit debut, "The Most Beautiful Day" launches another long-term revenue stream for PANTALEON Entertainment AG,
over all steps of the exploitation chain, including Home Entertainment and Video-on-Demand, Pay-TV and Free-TV.
PANTALEON owns a majority stake of "The Most Beautiful Day" with 61 percent, thus participating in a majority of the
film's profits, as well.
