 BERGEN BRUNSWIG SENDS LETTER TO DURR-FILLAUER MEDICAL BOARD
 ORANGE, Calif., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Bergen Brunswig Corporation (AMEX: BBC) reported today that it has sent the following letter to the board of directors of Durr-Fillauer Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: DUFM). The letter states, among other things, that, based upon Bergen Brunswig's review of the non-public information of Durr-Fillauer previously provided to Cardinal Distribution, Inc. and Bergen Brunswig's due diligence review with certain representatives of Durr-Fillauer conducted last week, Bergen Brunswig has determined that such information supports its current valuation of Durr-Fillauer.
 Bergen Brunswig also announced that, as a result of the foregoing, its outstanding proposal to acquire Durr-Fillauer at $33 per share in cash and its outstanding cash tender offer are no longer subject to the condition that Bergen Brunswig be given such information and after reviewing it be satisfied that it supports Bergen Brunswig's current valuation of Durr-Fillauer.
 The letter follows:
 As you know, last week we received the non-public information of Durr-Fillauer that had been provided previously to Cardinal Distribution and on Thursday and Friday met with Williamson, Adair, Cotton and Smith and other Durr-Fillauer representatives to conduct our due diligence review. We were impressed, as we always have been, with the knowledge and professionalism of your senior management and wish to than all of them again for meeting with us.
 Based upon our review of such non-public information and our due diligence discussions with your management, we have determined that such information supports our current valuation of Durr-Fillauer. We are therefore pleased to inform you that the proposal in our letter dated Aug. 18, 1992 to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Durr-Fillauer at $33 per share in cash and our outstanding cash tender offer are no longer subject to the condition that we be given such information and after reviewing it be satisfied that it supports our current valuation of your company.
 In order to clarify certain aspects of our proposal, we have attached hereto a revised proposed form of merger agreement, which contains the terms, conditions and other provisions on which we are prepared to move forward with you expeditiously. In this regard, we also are enclosing forms of employment and consulting agreements for Williamson, Adair, Cotton and Smith.
 As in the past, we and our advisors are prepared to meet with you at any time to negotiate the terms of the enclosed merger agreement. We hope you will contact us promptly.
 (Signed) Robert E. Martini, chairman of the board, and chief executive officer of Bergen Brunswig Corporation.
