Moss Bros Group

Holding in Company

Moss Bros Group PLC
5 December 2001


The Company was advised on 30 November 2001 that as at 29 November 2001, under 
Section 198 of the Companies Act 1985 ('the Act'), that Cantor Fitzgerald had an
interest in 4,466,932 ordinary shares of 5 pence each ('the shares') in the 
Company.

The Company subsequently received notification on the evening of 3 December 2001
from Legendary Investments Plc under Sections 198-208 of the Act that as at 29 
November 2001 it had an interest in 4,436,917 shares as follows:

    Legendary Investments Plc through Cantor Fitzgerald     4,366,932
    Mr S E Ahmed                                               69,985

This represents a holding of 4.87% in the issued ordinary share capital of the 
Company.

The Company is satisfied that the 4,366,932 shares disclosed by Legendary 
Investments Plc are the same shares Cantor Fitzgerald notified the Company of an
interest in on 29 November 2001.

Cantor Fitzgerald have stated that they hold the beneficial interest in the 
4,366,932 shares disclosed by Legendary Investment Plc and that Legendary 
Investment Plc control the voting rights of these shares.

As stated in its announcement of 3 December 2001, the Company considers it 
unlikely that this holding indicates a prospective credible takeover bid for the
Company.
