Today WhiteWave announced that they have entered in a merger with Danone under which Danone will acquire WhiteWave. It is expected that the transaction will close by the end of this year. Both companies are committed to providing consumers with great-tasting, responsibly-produced healthy foods and beverages, environmental stewardship and serving our communities. At Alpro we will continue to build on our mission and strategy and concentrate us on the further implementation thereof. Until the transaction closes, WhiteWave and Danone are seperate companies and it should be business as usual.
