Kraft Foods Inc. will complete the spin-off of Kraft Foods Group, Inc. (which will hold the North American grocery business) at 5 p.m. EDT on Oct. 1, 2012 (the "distribution date") through a pro rata dividend of all outstanding shares of Kraft Foods Group common stock it owns to its shareholders of record as of the close of business on Sept. 19, 2012 (the "record date"). On the distribution date, each Kraft Foods Inc. shareholder will receive one share of Kraft Foods Group common stock for every three shares of Kraft Foods Inc. common stock held by such shareholder on the record date.  Trades made in the ex-distribution market of Mondelez International, Inc. (under the ticker symbol "MDLZV") will not carry rights to receive shares of Kraft Foods Group in the spin-off.

Kraft Foods Group is expected to begin "regular-way" trading on The NASDAQ Global Select Market on Oct. 2, 2012, under the ticker symbol "KRFT."  Kraft Foods Inc. will be renamed Mondelez International, Inc. and will start "regular-way" trading on Oct. 2, 2012, on The NASDAQ Global Select Market under the ticker symbol "MDLZ." The current ticker symbol, "KFT," will be retired. 

The distribution of Kraft Foods Group common stock is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions.  Kraft Foods Inc. and Kraft Foods Group currently expect that all conditions to the spin-off will be satisfied on or before the distribution date.
