today announced that it plans to hold a Kate Spade Investor Day for the
financial community on Friday, March 15, 2013. This event will be webcast.

This marks the first of three planned events for 2013, with a similar
presentation for Lucky Brand to take place near the end of the second quarter
and another planned for Juicy Couture near the end of the third quarter.
Commenting on the announcement, William L. McComb, Chief Executive Officer of
Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc. said: "This will be a great venue for current
and potential investors to meet the brand management teams and to hear the
longer term growth plans and opportunities first at kate
spade, and later at
Lucky Brand and Juicy Couture, in a more focused setting than the multi-brand
investor days we have conducted in the past. Our intent is for these sessions to
be primers on the long term potential of each business with less focus on the
past year and the past quarter."
