First Quarter Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.24, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.23
Reporting Segments Realigned to Increase Focus on Value-Added Growth and Transformation
Expects Q2 Adjusted Diluted EPS of $0.23-$0.28, Suspends Full Year Guidance
Accelerating and Expanding Cost Reduction Efforts to Combat Pricing Pressures

DALLAS, May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ –Dean Foods Company (NYSE: DF) today announced that for the first quarter 2010, the Company earned $0.24 per diluted share, as compared to first quarter 2009 earnings of $0.48 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis, first quarter diluted earnings per share were $0.23, compared to $0.52 per diluted share earned in the prior year’s first quarter.

For the first quarter of 2010, net income attributable to Dean Foods totaled $43 million, compared with $76 million in the prior year’s first quarter. Adjusted net income for the first quarter was $42 million, compared to adjusted net income of $83 million in the first quarter of 2009.

“We entered 2010 facing substantial margin pressure in our milk business as retailers compressed private label margins to attract value conscious consumers,” said Gregg Engles, Chairman and CEO. “Despite a very strong performance at WhiteWave-Alpro, these very low private label retails drained the profit pool of our regional brands, and led to consolidated results that were below our expectations.”

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Consolidated net sales for the first quarter totaled $2.97 billion, compared to $2.70 billion of consolidated net sales in the first quarter of 2009. Consolidated net sales increased in the quarter due to the pass-through of higher overall dairy commodity costs at Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar, the acquisition of Alpro and solid net sales growth among the value-added brands at WhiteWave-Alpro.


     Summary of Dean Foods First Quarter 2010 Operating Results
     ----------------------------------------------------------

    Consolidated Adjusted Operating
     Income:                                           $123              -40%

    Interest Expense:                                   $58              -15%

    Consolidated Adjusted Net
     Income                                           $42              -49%

    Adjusted Diluted Earnings per
     Share:                                         $0.23              -56%


Consolidated operating income in the first quarter totaled $119 million, compared to $193 million in the first quarter of 2009. First quarter consolidated adjusted operating income totaled $123 million, compared to $205 million in the first quarter of 2009. The decline in first quarter consolidated adjusted operating income is due to significantly lower operating income in the traditional dairy business at Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar offset by strong growth in operating income in the value-added, branded WhiteWave-Alpro segment.

Total adjusted operating costs, including distribution, selling, marketing, and general and administrative costs, increased $74 million over the first quarter of 2009. Of this, approximately 60% of the increase in costs is attributable to three acquisitions completed in 2009. The remaining expense growth was primarily driven by transformation initiative support, higher fuel and freight costs at Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar and increased marketing support at WhiteWave-Alpro.

REPORTING SEGMENTS

In conjunction with today’s earnings report, the Company announced a realignment of its reporting segments. This change, which reflects the evolution of the Company’s business strategy, creates two segments: aligning the traditional dairy business under Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar and the value-added, branded businesses under WhiteWave-Alpro.

The two segments differ in their development, strategies and objectives. WhiteWave-Alpro, with $1.8 billion in annual sales, is a more highly developed business platform, focused on growth through value-added brands. This segment’s mission is to drive profitable growth through effective marketing and consumer resonant innovation. Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar, with $9.5 billion in annual sales, is focused on traditional dairy products sold under private labels and regional brands, where low cost is the critical factor to success. This segment is in the midst of a multi-year transformation initiative to significantly lower costs while increasing organizational capability.

The revised alignment will offer investors greater clarity into the relative performance of the businesses within the two operating segments, which is especially important given the recent acquisition of Alpro in mid-2009. Accordingly, selected recast segment financial information from 2009 is included below.

FRESH DAIRY DIRECT-MORNINGSTAR

Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar fluid milk volumes increased by 3.2% in the first quarter, compared to the balance of the industry that experienced approximately a 2% volume decline on a year over year basis*. Volume growth and the pass-through of higher average dairy commodity costs in the quarter resulted in Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar net sales of $2.5 billion, a 6% increase from $2.3 billion in net sales for the first quarter of 2009. The first quarter average Class I Mover was $14.74 per hundred-weight during the first quarter, 13% below the previous quarter, but 23% higher than the first quarter of 2009.

                                        ---------      ------

    Fluid Milk Volume                          --         +3.2%

    Operating Income                       $127.0          -41%

    Class I Mover                     $14.74/cwt.          +23%

    Class II Butterfat                  $1.48/lb.          +31%


Across the balance of the Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar portfolio, the ice cream, cultured and creamer businesses experienced modest volume declines in the quarter, while ice cream mix volumes increased high single digits. Class II butterfat, a primary input for cultured products at Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar, averaged $1.48 per pound in the first quarter, 3% above the previous quarter and 31% above the year earlier period.

Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar operating income in the first quarter was $127 million, a decrease of 41% from $215 million reported in the first quarter of 2009. The fluid milk category continues to be highly challenging as retail pricing for private label milk remains well below historical levels, widening price gaps between branded and private label offerings beyond sustainable levels. The resulting consumer trade-down to lower-margin private label products remains a meaningful impediment to operating results. Additionally, retailers continue to pressure the highly competitive dairy processing industry for price concessions, creating an additional challenge to the business. The business was also impacted in the quarter by general volume weakness across the balance of the Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar portfolio and pricing in creamer and cultured products that did not keep pace with commodity inflation.

WHITEWAVE-ALPRO

For the first quarter of 2010, the WhiteWave-Alpro segment reported net sales of $485 million, 35% higher than first quarter 2009 net sales of $360 million due to the benefits of the Alpro acquisition and strong volume driven net sales growth across the WhiteWave portfolio.

    Operating Income
    ----------------
    WhiteWave-Alpro                      $44          +54%


Among the key brands at WhiteWave-Alpro, International Delight(R) Coffee Creamer net sales grew more than 25% on continued strength behind new innovation. Land O’Lakes(R) brand creamers increased sales in the high-single digits The organic milk category returned to positive growth in the quarter and Horizon Organic(R) milk sales outpaced the market to report mid-single digit net sales growth. Silk(R) brand sales also increased in the mid-single digits and Alpro sales increased in the high-single digits in the quarter on a constant currency basis.

Segment operating income in the first quarter for WhiteWave-Alpro was $44 million, an increase of 54% from $29 million in the first quarter of 2009. Solid net sales growth across the portfolio and expense control led to strong profit flow through at WhiteWave. Alpro also reported a solid profit quarter, contributing to the strong result.

Additionally, the WhiteWave-Alpro segment operating income includes a $2 million loss related to the Company’s Hero/WhiteWave joint venture.

RESTRUCTURING

To accelerate its cost reduction and capability building efforts, the Company is increasing the scale and scope of its efforts to reduce costs to every area of its business including business segments, supply chain and corporate functions. Today, the Company’s largest segment, Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar, announced a plan to eliminate 350-400 positions in addition to the approximately 150 positions that have already been eliminated so far in 2010. The action announced today will be rolled out over the balance of the year and is expected to result in approximately $25 million in annualized savings. The Company will share its plans going forward as it makes additional decisions regarding future cost reduction efforts over the balance of the year.

“The cost reduction strategy we have been pursuing is our single most important area of focus,” continued Engles. “We have discussed goals of $90 million in cost savings in 2010 and $300 million over three to five years. It’s now clear that we have to be much more aggressive in both the timing and magnitude of our efforts. Going forward, these efforts will include an increase in the scale of the initiatives we currently have underway, as well as an increase in the scope of those efforts across the business. We are developing plans to accelerate productivity across our entire cost structure, including production, distribution, sales, administration and corporate expenditures.”

CORPORATE EXPENSE

First quarter 2010 corporate expense totaled $48 million, compared to $39 million in the first quarter of 2009. The Company expects very limited year over year growth in corporate expense through the balance of the year.

CASH FLOW

Net cash provided by continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2010 totaled $71 million, compared to $185 million in the first quarter of 2009. Free cash flow provided by operations, which is defined as net cash provided by continuing operations less net capital expenditures, totaled $28 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared to $146 million in the first quarter of 2009. A reconciliation between net cash provided by continuing operations and free cash flow provided by continuing operations is provided below.

Net capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2010 totaled $43 million, compared to $38 million in the same period of 2009.

Total debt at March 31, 2010, net of $48 million in cash on hand, was approximately $4.16 billion. The Company’s funded debt to EBITDA ratio, as defined by its credit agreements, was 4.43x as of the end of the first quarter, compared to a current covenant of 5.0x and an end of year step down in the covenant to 4.5x. The Company continues to focus on reducing overall leverage.

“Given the continuing challenges in the business, we are not on pace against our goals of deleveraging the balance sheet to approximately 3.5x funded debt to EBITDA by mid-2011,” stated Jack Callahan, Chief Financial Officer. “Therefore, we continue to closely monitor the capital markets and may choose to address our refinancing needs sooner than we’d previously anticipated. Both the bank and high yield financing markets have significantly improved over the past year, affording us multiple debt financing options to consider.”

FORWARD OUTLOOK

“Looking ahead at WhiteWave-Alpro we are on a solid path of volume, sales and profit growth that we expect to continue throughout 2010,” stated Engles. “Our branded business is very strong with significant momentum. We expect to continue to drive volume-led top-line growth through effective innovation and marketing, and to leverage this growth into another year of strong operating income growth.

“At Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar, the road ahead appears rocky, with a retail price environment that appears unsustainable, but has not yet abated. That makes it difficult to provide accurate guidance beyond the immediate quarter. The current pressures on FDD-Morningstar had a significant impact on Q1 results and could impact balance of year operating profits by up to $100 million if retailers continue to pursue a strategy of aggressive price promotion in private label milk. Additionally, dairy commodity prices are now expected to trend higher through the balance of the year, which could further pressure results.

“For the time being, we are going to provide specific guidance only for the next quarter, where our visibility is better. In this case, we expect adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter to be $0.23-$0.28, essentially in-line with Q1 results. While we hope to see a more positive environment in the back half of the year, the uncertainty surrounding whether or when that will occur leads us to suspend our full year guidance for the present time.”

For the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, the adjusted results and certain other non-GAAP financial measures differ from the Company’s results under GAAP by excluding the following:

(a) In accordance with the change in generally accepted accounting principles, effective January 1, 2009 all transaction-related fees on acquisitions are expensed as incurred. The adjustment reflects the elimination of transaction-related fees on acquisitions that have closed or are expected to close.

(b) The adjustment reflects the elimination of charges related to announced facility closings and reorganization costs.

(c) Effective January 1, 2009 the results of operations for the Hero/WhiteWave joint venture have been consolidated for financial reporting purposes. The adjustment reflects the operating loss attributable to the 50% interest in the Hero/WhiteWave joint venture that we do not own.

(d) The adjustment reflects the income tax impact for income from continuing operations before income taxes adjustments (a) through (c).

(e) The adjustment reflects the net income (loss) associated with previously reported discontinued operations.
