ITEM 5. Other Events.

       Merrill Corporation (“Merrill”) entered into a definitive Merger Agreement with Viking Merger Sub, Inc. (“Viking”), a newly formed affiliate of DLJ Merchant Banking Partners II, L.P. providing for the merger of Viking into Merrill. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merrill shareholders will receive $22.00 per share, in cash. Including the assumption of debt and payment of transaction-related expenses, the total purchase price is approximately $520.2 million. Messrs. John Castro, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Merrill and Rick R. Atterbury, the Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Merrill are participating in the transaction and will retain an equity interest in Merrill. The transaction is structured as a cash merger and is intended to be treated as a recapitalization for accounting purposes. Subject to various fiduciary exceptions, the Merger Agreement places certain restrictions on Merrill's ability to pursue other transactions. The Board of Directors of Merrill has approved the Merger Agreement (with Messrs. Castro and Atterbury abstaining). The merger, which requires Merrill shareholder approval and Hart-Scott-Rodino clearance and is subject to funding of committed financing, is expected to close in October 1999. Viking has received financing commitments for the transaction from DLJ Merchant Banking Partners II, L.P. and certain related funds, DLJ Capital Funding, Inc. and DLJ Bridge Finance, Inc.
