Purchase Agreement dated as of August 10, 2005 (the "Agreement"). The Agreement
has been approved by the Board of Directors of Tupperware, and is subject to
customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. Closing is
expected in the fourth quarter of 2005. A copy of the press release announcing
the Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference

         Additionally, Tupperware hereby files a slide presentation relating to
the Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and incorporated by reference
herein in its entirety.


 Statements contained in the press release (furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1)
and presentation (furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.2) that are not historical
fact or that relate to future plans, events or performances or that use
predictive words such as "outlook" or "target" are "forward-looking" statements

statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the benefits of the
acquisition, including future financial and operating results, Tupperware's
plans, objectives, intentions and expectations, including expectation that the
acquisition will close in the fourth quarter of 2005, that are not historical
facts. Readers are cautioned that forward-looking statements are based upon the
current beliefs and expectations of Tupperware's management and by their nature
involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on
circumstances that will occur in the future. Many factors could cause actual
results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by
these forward-looking statements, including, among others, the possibility that
the acquisition will not close or will be significantly delayed. Other risks and
uncertainties that could affect Tupperware include recruiting and activity of
the Company's independent sales forces, the success of new product introductions
and promotional programs, the ability to obtain all government approvals on land
sales, the success of buyers in attracting tenants for commercial developments,
the effects of economic and political conditions generally and foreign exchange
risk in particular and other risks detailed in the Company's reports on Form 8-K
