DELAY IN MOR-FLO MERGER TRANSACTION

 DELAY IN MOR-FLO MERGER TRANSACTION
 CLEVELAND, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Mor-Flo Industries, Inc.


(NASDAQ: MORF) announced today that its proposed merger with SABH is still under review by the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Mor-Flo stated that the Justice Department's decision whether or not to challenge the merger had originally been expected by mid-December, but had been delayed due to ongoing negotiations with the Justice Department. Mor-Flo noted that under the terms of the Merger Agreement signed May 10, 1991, either party has the right to terminate the merger transaction if a closing does not occur by Dec. 31, 1991. Mor-Flo noted further that termination of the Merger Agreement is not automatic and must be initiated by either Mor-Flo or SABH. Mor-Flo stated that its decision whether or not to terminate the Merger Agreement after Dec. 31, 1991 will primarily depend upon the progress of the ongoing Justice Department negotiations. Mor-Flo estimated that such negotiations would probably be concluded during January 1992.
