Bernstein Liebhard LLP Announces Investigation of Acquisition of Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.

December 19, 2011

Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating whether the Board of Directors of Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. (“Winn-Dixie” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: WINN) breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in agreeing to sell Winn-Dixie to BI-LO, LLC.

Under the terms of the agreement, Winn-Dixie shareholders will receive $9.50 in cash for each share they own.
