Back to all newsroom
Friday, 14 September 2001

FRANKLIN PARK, Ill., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ — Dean Foods Company
(NYSE: DF) announced that its shareholders approved the proposed merger
between Dean Foods and Suiza Foods at a special meeting held today.
Approximately 63% of the shares outstanding as of the record date were voted
in favor of the merger transaction. Of the total shares voted, over 96% of
the votes approved the merger.

Suiza Foods has scheduled its meeting of shareholders to vote on the
merger on September 21, 2001. The closing of the merger remains subject to
certain conditions included in the merger agreement, including clearance by
the Department of Justice. The merger is expected to be completed by the end
of the year.

Dean Foods is one of the nation’s leading dairy processors and
distributors producing a full line of branded and private label products,
including fluid milk, ice cream and extended shelf life products, which are
sold under the Dean’s and other strong regional brand names. Dean Foods is
the industry leader in other food products including pickles, powdered
non-dairy coffee creamers, aseptically packaged foodservice products, and
refrigerated dips and salad dressings.

Some of the statements in this press release are “forward-looking” and are
made pursuant to the safe harbor provision of the Securities Litigation Reform
Act of 1995. These statements involve certain risks and uncertainties that
may cause actual results to differ materially from expectations as of the date
of this press release. These risks include, but are not limited to, the
ability to integrate acquisitions, adverse weather conditions resulting in
poor harvest conditions, raw milk, resin and fuel costs, interest rate
fluctuations, the level of promotional spending, competitive pricing
pressures, the effectiveness of marketing and cost management programs, and
shifts in market demand and the other risks discussed in Dean Foods’ Annual
Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended May 27, 2001. In addition, the
exact timing of the merger, and of the intermediate steps that Dean Foods and
Suiza Foods will take in connection with the completion of the merger, will
depend on how quickly the companies obtain the necessary approvals for the
transaction.
