McDONALD'S ANNOUNCES A COMMISSION-FREE PROGRAM FOR SHAREHOLDERS WHO OWN LESS THAN 50 SHARES

 McDONALD'S ANNOUNCES A COMMISSION-FREE
 PROGRAM FOR SHAREHOLDERS WHO OWN LESS THAN 50 SHARES
 OAK BROOK, Ill., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD) today announced a program through which shareholders who own less than 50 shares can conveniently and cost-effectively either purchase additional shares of McDonald's stock, donate shares to selected charities, or sell shares without paying any brokerage commissions. The initial offering period will be 30 days. McDonald's Corporation will also make matching donations equivalent to the value of all shares donated, up to a combined maximum of $100,000.
 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael R. Quinlan said, "McDonald's is very interested in attracting and retaining individual investors. Many of our shareholders follow a long-term investment strategy and are interested in increasing their investments over time. On the other hand, we realize that some shareholders may have no interest in building their investments, perhaps because they acquired their shares as gifts or in some other indirect manner. These shareholders may prefer to sell their shares but have not yet found a convenient and cost-effective way to do so. We have designed this program to meet the needs of both of these audiences."
 McDonald's is the world's leading foodservice organization, with more than 12,400 restaurants in 62 countries. About 80 percent of McDonald's restaurant businesses are locally owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs.
