Reed, former chief executive officer of Keebler Foods Company, who will serve as chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the new company.

Following the distribution, Dean Foods will not own any shares of TreeHouse, and TreeHouse will be an independent, publicly traded company listed under the symbol "THS" on the New York Stock Exchange. 

Dean Foods will distribute to the holders of Dean Foods common stock one share of TreeHouse common stock for every five shares of Dean Foods common stock outstanding on 20 June 2005, the record date for the distribution. The distribution will be on or about 27 June 2005.
