17:36 EDTDGIcahn reduces stake in Family Dollar, citing 'better' return potential elsewhere
Carl Icahn, who reported reducing his stake in Family Dollar (FDO) to 6.03% from 9.39%, said in a regulatory filing that he sold shares in the company after "concluding that better returns can be achieved by deploying capital elsewhere rather than waiting either for the Dollar Tree (DLTR) transaction to close or for the possibility of a higher offer to emerge." Icahn intends to continue studying the situation and may determine to dispose of or acquire additional shares in the future, depending on their views as to the probability of a higher bid, market conditions and other factors. Note that Bloomberg reported yesterday that Dollar General (DG) rejected the chance to bid on Family Dollar.

14:45 EDTDGFamily Dollar bid as high as $87 could make sense, Reuters says
The relatively low level of cost savings synergies identified by Family Dollar (FDO) and Dollar Tree (DLTR) may leave room for another suitor, such as Dollar General (DG), to step in with a higher bid that would still make financial sense, according to Reuters Breakingviews columnist Kevin Allison. If an alternate buyer could find $500M of annual savings, that would justify paying roughly $87 per share, or about double the current premium, for Family Dollar, Allison calculates. Reference Link
13:23 EDTDGIcahn 'pleased' with Family Dollar deal, 'hopeful' alternate deal may surface
Carl Icahn released the following statement regarding Family Dollar Stores (FDO): "While we continue to believe there are a handful of potential buyers who could realize greater synergies through a combination with Family Dollar and are hopeful that one or more of them will surface as a result of today’s announcement, we are extremely pleased with Dollar Tree’s (DLTR) intention to acquire Family Dollar in a transaction that values the company at $74.50 per share. This is a big win for all shareholders of Family Dollar and yet another validation of the activist investment philosophy in general." Another company in the space, Dollar General (DG), has previously been speculated as an alternative partner for Family Dollar and Wal-Mart (WMT) is seen as a competitor to dollar store operators.
