interpreted its voting rights disclosure obligations under German law,
BlackRock entities are filing today a statement representing their holdings
as at the settlement date of 25 September 2014 in adidas AG.

The statement does not reflect a change in BlackRock's current holdings of
voting rights. The statement simply updates information currently in the
market regarding BlackRock's holdings in adidas AG. Further, the statement
does not signify any change in investment strategies pursued.

Also, BlackRock issues a press release detailing the BlackRock group
entities and their respective voting rights applicable to adidas AG and
other relevant German issuers on
