CtW Investment Group Challenges Longs' Anti-Trust Arguments (NYSE: LDG)
Date:9/29/2008

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- In a letter to Dr. Mary S. Metz, the chairwoman of the Longs (NYSE: LDG) board's Governance Committee, the CtW Investment Group questions the Longs' board's refusal to enter into negotiations with Walgreens and challenges the arguments put forward by the board regarding anti-trust risks associated with Walgreens' proposed purchase of Longs. Citing analysis prepared by expert anti-trust counsel Doyle, Barlow, and Mazard (DBM), and in stark contrast to Longs' assertion that a Walgreens merger would entail significant anti-trust-related regulatory delays, CtW argues that the proposed Walgreens merger could be approved even without a second request for information. Moreover, CtW Investment Group contends that even if regulators require a longer review period, the cost to shareholders will be much smaller than Longs has projected.

The letter to Dr. Mary S. Metz and the anti-trust analysis prepared by Doyle, Barlow, and Mazard are available at http://www.ctwinvestmentgroup.com.
