Jury in California Superior Court Unanimously Found Monster Energy Drinks Do Not Cause Cardiac Arrhythmias or Cardiac Arrest

CORONA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#naca–Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ: MNST) today reported that on
Thursday, December 6th, a jury in a California Superior Court in
Riverside, California unanimously found that Monster Energy drinks do
not cause cardiac arrhythmias or cardiac arrest. The case was Bledsoe v.
Monster.

“This is the first case of this type to ever go to verdict and I am
pleased the jury listened to the medical and scientific evidence and
followed the law,” said Marc P. Miles of Shook, Hardy & Bacon. “After
years of unsupported allegations regarding the safety of energy drinks,
the jury needed only fifteen minutes to reach this finding.”

More than 100 billion energy drinks have been sold and safely consumed
worldwide for more than 27 years. More than 25 billion Monster Energy
drinks have been sold and safely consumed worldwide for more than 15
years.

Monster Energy drinks contain approximately 10 mg of caffeine per ounce
from all sources. A 16 oz. Monster Energy drink contains less than half
the caffeine contained in a same-sized coffeehouse coffee.

Monster has always been confident in the safety of its products and
stands by them. This verdict further validates what Monster has always
known – Monster Energy drinks are safe.

Monster was represented by Shook, Hardy & Bacon attorneys Marc Miles,
Kristy Schlesinger, Janet Hickson and Gabe Spooner.
