Item 2.01.                      Completion of Acquisition of Assets

On February 3, 2011, PepsiCo, Inc. (“PepsiCo”) announced that it had completed the previously announced acquisition of ordinary shares (“Shares”), American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), and Global Depositary Shares (“GDSs”) of Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods OJSC, a company incorporated in the Russian Federation (“WBD”), which represent in the aggregate approximately 66% of WBD’s outstanding Shares, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement dated December 1, 2010 (the “Purchase Agreement”) between PepsiCo and certain selling shareholders of WBD for approximately $3.8 billion.  The acquisition increased PepsiCo’s total ownership of WBD to approximately 77%.

PepsiCo expects to make an offer in Russia (the “Russian Offer”) on or before March 11, 2011 to acquire all of the remaining Shares, in accordance with the mandatory tender offer rules of the Russian Federation.  The price to be paid in the Russian Offer will be 3,883.70 Russian rubles per Share.  This price is $132, which is the highest amount PepsiCo paid to the selling shareholders pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, converted to Russian rubles at the highest Central Bank of Russia exchange rate established for February 3, 2011 and all subsequent days on which the Shares purchased under the Purchase Agreement were transferred to PepsiCo.  WBD will distribute information materials relating to the Russian Offer on or about March 26, 2011, pursuant to Russian law.  Concurrently with the Russian Offer, PepsiCo expects to make an offer (the “U.S. Offer” and together with the Russian Offer, the “Offers”) to all holders of ADSs at a price per ADS equal to 970.925 Russian rubles (which is one-fourth of 3,883.70 Russian rubles since each ADS represents one-fourth of a Share), without interest and less any fees, conversion expenses and applicable taxes.  This amount will be converted to U.S. dollars at the spot market rate on or about the date that PepsiCo pays for the ADSs tendered in the U.S. Offer.  Information concerning the U.S. Offer will be distributed to holders of ADSs and will be filed by PepsiCo with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on or about March 11, 2011.  PepsiCo expects that the Offers will remain open for approximately 70 calendar days, expiring in the second half of May, although the U.S. Offer is expected to expire several business days before the expiration of the Russian Offer.

After expiration of the Offers, and assuming the applicable requirements are met, PepsiCo plans to cause WBD to delist the ADSs from the New York Stock Exchange, terminate the registration of the ADSs and Shares under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, terminate the ADS deposit agreement and delist the Shares from the Russian Trading System.  In addition, if after consummation of the Offers, PepsiCo owns Shares of WBD representing more than 95% of the outstanding Shares, PepsiCo intends to purchase any Shares (and ADSs) not owned by PepsiCo at a price determined by Russian law.

Attached as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 and incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01 are copies of PepsiCo’s press release announcing the acquisition of 66% of WBD dated February 3, 2011, and PepsiCo’s press release announcing the pricing for the Offers dated February 3, 2011, respectively.

Important Additional Information

This release is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell Shares, ADSs, GDSs, or other WBD securities.

In connection with the Russian Offer, PepsiCo will file a mandatory tender offer document with the Russian Federal Service for the Financial Markets (“FSFM”).  Wimm-Bill-Dann will distribute the Russian mandatory tender offer document, together with recommendations of its board of directors and related Russian offer acceptance materials, to holders of Shares.  Copies of the Russian Offer documents will also be available by contacting Orient Capital, the information agent for the Russian Offer, at +44 207 776 7574 or at the website maintained by Wimm-Bill-Dann at www.wbd.ru.

In connection with the U.S. Offer, a tender offer statement and related materials will be filed by PepsiCo with the SEC and WBD’s solicitation/recommendation statement relating to the offer will be filed by WBD with the SEC.  PepsiCo will mail these materials for the U.S. Offer to ADS holders.  Investors and security holders will also be able to obtain a copy of these statements and other documents filed by PepsiCo and WBD free of charge at the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov. In addition, the tender offer statement, the solicitation/recommendation statement, and related materials will be available free of charge by contacting PepsiCo’s information agent for the U.S. Offer, Innisfree M&A Incorporated, toll-free at 877-750-9496 (for ADS holders in the U.S. and Canada) or 412-232-3651 (for ADS holders in other countries).  ADS holders in the EU may also call Innisfree’s wholly-owned subsidiary Lake Isle M&A Incorporated, free-phone at 00 800-7710-9971.

Investors and security holders are urged to carefully read the tender offer statements and any other documents relating to the Offers filed by PepsiCo with the SEC and FSFM when they become available, as well as any amendments and supplements to those documents, because they will contain important information.
