Kellwood Company announced that it intends to remove all impediments to the $21.00 per share cash tender offer made by an affiliate of Sun Capital Securities Group so that it can be consummated on February 12, 2008 if a majority of the shares are tendered. Sun Capital's $21.00 per share cash tender offer, under its terms, is not subject to financing or due diligence.

Prior to the expiration of Sun Capital's tender offer on February 12, 2008, Kellwood intends to rescind its debt tender offer, give the requisite approvals under Delaware law and its charter, and take action under its Shareholder Rights Plan, so that Sun Capital's $21.00 per share cash tender offer can be consummated on February 12, 2008 if a majority of the shares are tendered.

Kellwood's Board of Directors is not taking any position on whether or not stockholders should tender their shares into the offer. Stockholders may now make their own decision on whether to tender their shares.

If a majority of shares, including Sun Capital's existing holdings, are tendered on February 12, 2008, Kellwood believes that all conditions to the tender offer will have been satisfied, and Sun Capital will be obligated to close the tender.

Kellwood's Board of Directors also stated that its financial advisors, Banc of America Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated, will approach third parties who have previously contacted the Company, and other third parties, including Sun Capital, to seek an alternative transaction with a value above $21.00 per share.
