To: All Ford and Lincoln Mercury Dealers
Subject: Mercury Brand Media Speculation

Many of you are aware that several media outlets on Thursday published stories speculating on the future of the Mercury brand. Understandably, this has caused some confusion and frustration within the dealer network, and we have received phone calls and e-mails requesting answers.

As we reinforced in the media, like any good business, we always are assessing our business portfolio and product plans. However, we have nothing new to announce at this time.

Our commitment is to maintain a collaborative relationship with our dealer partners. As remains our practice, we will not announce major business decisions without first communicating with you. If you have questions about the business, please continue to reach out to your Regional Sales Manager.

In addition, the Direct Impact (DI) public relations agency that we established a few years ago to help the entire dealer network with local media engagement and community outreach is available. If you receive local media inquiries or simply need communications support now or at any time, please take advantage of Direct Impact's experience and expertise.

This will help ensure a consistent message and accurate reporting of the situation and help all of us reassure current Mercury customers of our continued commitment to them.


As always, our pledge is to continue working with you and to keep the lines of communication open on all matters that affect our collective business.

Thank you for your continued support and business.

Regards,

Kenneth M. Czubay
Vice President, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service
Ford Motor Company

Then I recieved this today

To: All Ford and Lincoln Mercury Dealers
Subject: A MESSAGE FROM MARK FIELDS: FORD TO EXPAND LINCOLN LINEUP AND BRAND EMPHASIS


Today marks another important milestone in our company's transformation as we solidify plans to further grow our Ford brand while accelerating Lincoln.

As noted in the attached press release, today we are announcing plans to introduce seven new or significantly upgraded Lincoln vehicles in the next four years, including our first-ever C-segment vehicle.

We also are announcing that we will end production of Mercury vehicles in the fourth quarter of this year. While Mercury served us well in the past, it now is time to fully devote our resources and attention to growing Lincoln just as we have been doing so successfully with the Ford brand.

We are meeting today with members of the Dealer Council, the news media and other key stakeholders to ensure everyone understands our plan. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with details of today's announcement. Additional information is also available FMCDealer.com, as well as @Ford Online.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mark Fields
