Coca-Cola FEMSA and The Coca-Cola Company sign an exclusivity agreement to evaluate the potential acquisition of a controlling stake of the Philippines bottling operations

Mexico City, Mexico – February 20, 2012 – Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:

KOFL; NYSE: KOF) (“Coca-Cola FEMSA” or the “Company”), the largest public bottler of

Coca-Cola products in the world, announces that it has entered into a 12 month exclusivity

agreement with The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) to evaluate the potential acquisition of a

controlling ownership stake in the bottling operations owned by The Coca-Cola Company in

the Philippines.

Both parties believe that KOF’s expertise and successful track record operating in fragmented

markets and emerging economies can be effectively deployed in this territory and contribute

significantly towards expanding the penetration of, and consumer preference for, The Coca-

Cola Company’s brands in this market.

This agreement does not require either party to enter into a transaction, and there can be no

assurances that a definitive agreement will be executed.
