Constellation Brands Statement Regarding Discussions with DOJ

Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ), Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD), Grupo Modelo, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: GMODELOC), and Crown Imports LLC have made substantial progress in their discussions with the U.S. Department of Justice toward resolution of the Department of Justice's litigation, relating to AB InBev's proposed acquisition of the remaining stake in Grupo Modelo it does not already own, based on the terms of the revised transaction announced on Feb. 14, 2013.

If the parties reach an agreement, they will file a proposed consent judgment and related documentation with the Court. There can be no assurance that the ongoing discussions will be successful.
