Special Notice to Dollar General Class Action Claimants

If you previously submitted a Proof of Claim in In re Dollar General Securities Litigation, Civil Action No. 3:01-0388 (M.D. Tenn.) (WJH), a securities class action involving Dollar General Corporation ("Dollar General Class Action"), and that claim was approved, you do not need to submit another Proof of Claim Form to participate in the SEC Fair Fund. If you would like to verify the details of the claim approved in the Dollar General Class Action, please call 1 (866) 291-4517.

However, if you engaged in, and wish to submit a claim for, additional transactions in Dollar General securities during the period from June 16, 1998 through January 14, 2002 for which a claim was not previously approved in the Dollar General Class Action, you must submit a Proof of Claim Form and all required documentation with respect to those additional transactions. You may view your approved transactions and/or submit a claim for additional transactions on the SEC Fair Fund's website.

In addition, if you are a custodian, trustee or professional investing and claiming on behalf of more than one potentially eligible claimant in a pooled investment fund or entity, you will be required to certify that any distribution you receive will be allocated for the benefit of current or former investors and not for the benefit of management. You must comply with that certification requirement even for those previously approved stock transactions for which you are not required to submit another Proof of Claim Form. See Certification Regarding Pooled Investment Distributions.

If you have additional questions regarding the above, please call 1(866) 291-4517 in the United States, or send an email to Questions@dollargeneralsecsettlement.com.
