(NYSE: PEP) announced today that in connection with the tender offers for all outstanding ordinary shares and American Depositary Shares (ADSs) of Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods OJSC (NYSE: WBD) that will follow as a result of PepsiCo's previously announced purchase of a 66% stake in WBD, the offer prices will equal 3,883.70 Russian rubles per ordinary share and 970.925 Russian rubles per ADS (without interest and less any fees, conversion expenses and applicable taxes).  The ADS tender price will be converted to U.S. dollars at the spot market rate on or about the date that PepsiCo pays for the ADSs tendered in the ADS tender offer.

Important Additional Information

In connection with the Russian offer, PepsiCo will file a mandatory tender offer document with the Russian Federal Service for the Financial Markets (FSFM).  Wimm-Bill-Dann will distribute the Russian mandatory tender offer document, together with recommendations of its board of directors and related Russian offer acceptance materials, to holders of Wimm-Bill-Dann's shares.  Copies of the Russian offer documents will also be available by contacting Orient Capital, the information agent for the Russian offer, at +44 207 776 7574 or at the website maintained by Wimm-Bill-Dann at www.wbd.ru.

In addition, the tender offer statement, the solicitation/recommendation statement, and related materials will be available free of charge by contacting PepsiCo's information agent for the U.S. offer, Innisfree M&A Incorporated, toll-free at 877-750-9496 (for ADS holders in the U.S. and Canada) or 412-232-3651 (for ADS holders in other countries).  ADS holders in the EU may also call Innisfree's wholly-owned subsidiary Lake Isle M&A Incorporated, free-phone at 00 800-7710-9971.
