DETROIT, July 6, 2001 – DTE Energy Co. today said that it expects to realize additional cost synergies due to the recently completed merger with MCN Energy Group. A higher-than-expected employee acceptance rate of voluntary early retirement offers is expected to result in additional after-tax savings of about $10 million to $15 million in 2001. The additional savings will coincide with a one-time, after-tax restructuring charge.
