09:37 EDTDLTR, FDODollar Tree says Family Dollar merger could close as soon as March
Dollar Tree (DLTR) commented on the outcome of the shareholder vote of Family Dollar Stores (FDO) to approve the pending merger with Dollar Tree. It said, "Today’s vote of approval by Family Dollar shareholders represents a crucial step toward combining Dollar Tree, North America’s leading fixed-price point discount retailer, with Family Dollar, a leading multi-price point retailer with a 50+ year history of serving low and middle income customers By adding Family Dollar to our portfolio of brands, Dollar Tree will soon operate more than 13,000 stores in 48 states and five Canadian provinces with annual sales exceeding $18 billion. This merger enhances our geographic footprint and diversifies our business model. We intend to operate and grow both banners." Dollar Tree added that "several steps" need to take place to facilitate the successful completion of the acquisition. By the end of January, Dollar Tree expects to reach a preliminary agreement with the FTC staff on the list of substantially all of the stores to be divested. Dollar Tree then plans to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected buyers, to address any concerns of the investigating state attorneys general, and to execute a consent order with the FTC’s Bureau of Competition. Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have agreed to provide the FTC with four weeks’ notice prior to closing. Dollar Tree expects to initiate this four-week notice period after Dollar Tree executes a consent decree with the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, which should enable the closing of the merger as soon as March 2015.
