Dear Mr. Smith,

We did not receive your February 28, 2017 fax, regarding a Right To Know Law request, concerning WhiteWave Foods Co. and Danone SA.

Upon receipt of your confirmation to this e-mail, we would be happy to begin processing your request.

In addition, if you have a more legible copy of your full request, it would be greatly appreciated and would assist us in processing.

Kind regards,
PA Office of Attorney General, Right to Know Law Office

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any public documents referencing, regarding, or in concern of the planned sale of WhiteWave Foods Co. to Danone SA. This could include but is not limited to communications from within the AG's office; memos from within the office; reports; findings; or public statements. It necessarily includes any evaluation (or summary of an evaluation) as to whether to open an investigation or intervene in the case. If an investigation or intervention was undertaken by your office, it includes any investigative work or summaries/reports of work, if that investigation has concluded. If any document is deemed to contain a trade secret by either of these businesses, I request that the secret be redacted individually and that the document not be withheld in full.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Hi Ms. Rogers. Feel free to call me about either of my requests out to your office -- the one asking for the last 10 requests about antitrust and the one about a particular merger. I can be reached at 202-813-1032 ext. 120 during normal EST business hours. I try to return my calls promptly if I am unavailable.

Talk soon,
Brandon Smith

From: Brandon Smith

Hi Ms. Rogers,

Did we speak about these two outstanding FOIA requests? Do you still need my input?

Best,
Brandon Smith

From: Rogers, Sharon K.

We are responding to both of these requests. The one regarding the last 10 requests about antitrust is due to you on April 3, 2017. In the one regarding the WhiteWave Foods, we owe you a response by April 24, 2017. Hopefully that answers your question.
Thanks,

Sharon

From: Brandon Smith
