 BERGEN BRUNSWIG ANNOUNCES MERGER AGREEMENT WITH DURR-FILLAUER
 ORANGE, Calif., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Bergen Brunswig Corporation, (AMEX: BBC) announced today a definitive merger agreement with Durr- Fillauer Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: DUFM) pursuant to which Bergen Brunswig has agreed to acquire Durr-Fillauer for $33 per share in cash. Under the terms of the agreement, following completion of the pending $33 cash tender offer by BBC Acquisition Corp. for all outstanding shares of Durr-Fillauer common stock, Durr-Fillauer will be merged with a Bergen Brunswig subsidiary, and each Durr-Fillauer common share not previously purchased in the offer will be converted in the merger into the right to receive $33 in cash.
 The board of directors of Durr-Fillauer has determined that the consideration to be paid for each common share pursuant to the offer and the merger is fair to and in the best interests of the stockholders of Durr-Fillauer and recommends that Durr-Fillauer's stockholders accept the offer and tender their shares in the offer.
 Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Bergen Brunswig, BBC Acquisition Corp. and Durr-Fillauer have agreed to immediately dismiss all legal proceedings pending between them and to release any and all claims they may have against each other.
 Prior to entering into the merger agreement with Bergen Brunswig, Durr-Fillauer terminated its previous agreement with Cardinal Distribution, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDIC), in accordance with its terms.
 Bergen Brunswig stated that its offer to purchase all outstanding shares of Durr-Fillauer common stock has been extended and is now scheduled to expire at 8 p.m., New York time, on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 1992. As set forth in the merger agreement, the offer is subject to certain conditions, including the condition that at least a majority of Durr-Fillauer's outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis have been validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the offer. Consummation of the merger is expected to occur as promptly as practicable after the offer is completed,.
 The merger agreement also provides for Durr-Fillauer's preferred stock purchase rights to be amended so that such rights will be inapplicable to the offer and will no longer be outstanding upon consummation of the merger.
 A supplement to the Bergen Brunswig offer to purchase describing the terms of the merger agreement will be distributed shortly to Durr-Fillauer stockholders.
