  His Hand as a DQ® Operator

MINNEAPOLIS -- December 12, 2012

The Dairy Queen^® system, part of Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A and BRK.B),
invites Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel to add another title to his name:
Dairy Queen operator. The Texas A&M quarterback recently appeared on the “Late
Show with David Letterman,” where Letterman advised him to quit the team,
leave college and open a Dairy Queen restaurant.

“While the Dairy Queen system does not advocate quitting college, we welcome
Johnny to try his hand at working in one of our restaurants any time,” said
Barry Westrum, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen
Corporation (ADQ). “He would certainly be one of our most famous operators and
could follow in the footsteps of another sports celebrity, Dallas Mavericks
owner Mark Cuban, who managed a Coppell, Texas Dairy Queen restaurant for a
day back in 2002. He was called Johnny Football, now he’s Johnny Heisman.
We’re ready to call him Johnny DQ^®.”

There are more than 4,500 Dairy Queen restaurants located throughout the
United States, including one in College Station, Texas, where Manziel attends
college.
