Dollar Tree (DLTR) announced that it has certified substantial compliance with the Request for Additional Information and Documentary Materials issued by the FTC on September 8, regarding its proposed acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). Family Dollar previously certified substantial compliance with the FTC on October 21. In order to facilitate the FTC’s review, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have agreed not to close the Proposed Merger prior to December 30, unless the FTC completes its review of the Proposed Merger and terminates the waiting period at an earlier date. The FTC staff has indicated that it is examining whether prices would increase if the parties no longer had to compete with each other, and an important factor in this examination is how prices would change under either of the merging parties’ current pricing policies. The FTC staff has also focused on the similarity and differences between the parties’ stores and other competing retail chains. The concerns and competitive theories articulated by the FTC staff would require divestitures in connection with the Proposed Merger. As Dollar Tree remains confident that it will obtain antitrust approval to consummate the Proposed Merger reasonably promptly. Dollar Tree is committed to cooperating with the FTC’s investigation of the Proposed Merger, and providing all of the necessary information for the FTC to advance its review as promptly as practicable. The special meeting of Family Dollar shareholders to vote on the Proposed Merger is currently scheduled for December 11.
