MEXICO: Pepsi-Gemex Files Request to Make Cash Tender Offer
Pepsi-Gemex expects to have the support of EMVASA's principle shareholders and has received the full support of PepsiCo, Inc. The all-cash tender, to be made in Mexican pesos, is valued at approximately $81,000,000 (USD), plus assumption of EMVASA's indebtedness.
The tender offer is conditioned on numerous approvals, including Mexican government authorities (the CNBV, the Competition and Antitrust Commission and the Foreign Investment Commission and others), as well as other conditions. There can be no assurance that the required approvals will be granted or that this transaction will close.
Pepsi-Gemex is the largest Pepsi bottler exclusively outside the United States and sole anchor bottler for Pepsi-Cola in Mexico. The Company's current operations encompass the Mexico City metropolitan area, and portions of the adjacent states of Mexico and Hidalgo, the southwestern states of Guerrero and Morelos, the southeastern states of Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo and the central states of Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, Durango and San Luis Potosi.

Since January 1999, the financial results of the Northeast Bottling Group have been consolidated into those of Pepsi-Gemex.
