Additional Information and Where to Find It

The tender offer described in the communication has not yet commenced and this communication is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of common stock of Frozen Food Express Industries, Inc. ("FFE"). At the time the tender offer is commenced, Duff Brothers Capital Corporation will file with the SEC a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, and FFE will file a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the tender offer. FFE stockholders and other investors are strongly advised to read the tender offer materials (including the Offer to Purchase, the related Letter of Transmittal and certain other tender offer documents) and the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement, as they may be amended from time to time, because they will contain important information which should be read carefully before any decision is made with respect to the tender offer. The Offer to Purchase, the related Letter of Transmittal and certain other offer documents, as well as the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement, will be made available to all FFE stockholders at no expense to them. The Tender Offer Statement and the Solicitation/Recommendation Statement will also be available for free at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov . Free copies of these materials and other tender offer documents will also be made available by the information agent for the tender offer.

In addition to the Offer to Purchase, the related Letter of Transmittal and certain other tender offer documents, FFE files annual, quarterly and special reports, proxy statements and other information with the SEC. You may read and copy any reports, statements or other information filed by FFE at the SEC public reference room at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549. Please call the Commission at 1-800-SEC-0330 for further information on the public reference room. FFE's filings with the SEC are also available to the public from commercial document-retrieval services and at the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov .

Forward-Looking Statements

This communication contains "forward-looking statements," within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, relating to the acquisition of FFE by Duff Brothers Capital Corporation.  All statements relating to plans, strategies, objectives, expectations and intentions, all statements identified by words such as "will", "could", "should", "believe", "expect", "intend", "plan", "schedule", "estimate", "project", and similar expressions and all statements other than historical facts included in this communication, including, but not limited to, the statements regarding the timing and the closing of the tender offer and merger transactions, the expected benefits of the transaction, any plans to operate FFE post-closing and any assumptions underlying any of the foregoing, are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current expectations of future events. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or unknown, or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could vary materially from expectations and projections. Risks and uncertainties include, among other things, uncertainties as to the timing of the tender offer and merger; uncertainties as to how many of FFE's stockholders will tender their stock in the tender offer; the possibility that various closing conditions to the tender offer and merger transactions may not be satisfied or waived, including that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay, or refuse to grant approval for the consummation of the transaction; that there is a material adverse change to FFE; any material adverse development in pending or threatened litigation involving FFE; other business effects, including effects of industry, economic or political conditions outside FFE's control; transaction costs; actual or contingent liabilities; as well as other cautionary statements contained elsewhere herein and in FFE's periodic reports filed with the SEC including current reports on Form 8-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and annual reports on Form 10-K. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date of this communication. FFE expressly disclaims any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements except as required by law. Additional information about FFE is available at www.ffeinc.com .
