REG-Cadbury plc: Delisting of American Depositary Shares

February 24, 2010 -- Cadbury plc Announces Delisting of Cadbury American Depositary Shares Cadbury plc ("Cadbury") announced on 5 February 2010 its intention to delist its American Depositary Shares ("Cadbury ADSs") from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"), effective, in so far as practicable, on the same date as the cancellation of the listing of Cadbury ordinary shares on the Official List and of trading on the London Stock Exchange.

Cadbury today announces that it has filed a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") today to effect the delisting. Cadbury expects the filing to be effective prior to the opening of trading of the NYSE on Monday, 8 March 2010, at which point the Cadbury ADSs will be delisted from the NYSE. This follows Kraft Foods Inc.'s final recommended offer for Cadbury being declared wholly unconditional on 2 February 2010.

Following the delisting of the Cadbury ADSs from the NYSE, and if Cadbury can certify that there are fewer than 300 record holders of Cadbury ADSs, Cadbury intends to file a Form 15 with the SEC in order to deregister from the SEC and to terminate its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Upon the filing of the Form 15, Cadbury's obligation to file periodic reports with the SEC under the Exchange Act will be suspended immediately. The deregistration will become effective 90 days after such filing, unless earlier withdrawn by Cadbury or denied by the SEC.
