The spin-off of Hanesbrands from Sara Lee Corporation is expected to be completed by early September, 2006, subject to market conditions and regulatory approvals.

In addition to Chaden and Noll, the director designees include two former Chief Executive Officers who led public company spin-offs, as well as executives with in-depth operational experience in Southeast Asia, worldwide logistics, global trade, brand building, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions.

"Each designee for the board of directors has been selected for his or her relevant business experience and working knowledge of corporate governance," said Chaden. "Their talents will help guide the evolution of Hanesbrands as it builds upon its leading position in the US apparel essentials industry and expands through global growth."
