06:18 EDTFDOFamily Dollar sends letter to stockholders on proposed merger with Dollar Tree
Family Dollar (FDO), in a letter to its stockholders, explains the recommendation of the board that stockholders vote "FOR" the merger with Dollar Tree (DLTR). In the letter, Family Dollar CEO Howard Levine said, "I wanted to provide complete transparency to you regarding the most recent feedback that we have received from the FTC staff, which reaffirms the statements that we have been making for several months now about the inability of the Dollar General proposal to be consummated on the terms proposed by Dollar General and the certainty of the Dollar Tree merger... This existing economic analysis by the FTC will be refined in certain respects, but we see no basis to believe that, taken together, these refinements will result in a final divestiture number anywhere near the 1,500 stores that Dollar General has offered to divest. Importantly, the 3,500 to 4,000 store range does not include many additional divestitures that likely will be triggered by the well over 1,000 additional new or planned Dollar General and Family Dollar stores. The FTC staff plans to incorporate these stores into the same economic analysis, which will create new overlaps and exacerbate existing overlaps that have not yet created presumptions of requirements to divest. Going in the other direction, the FTC will incorporate into its economic analysis a modest number of competitorsí additional new or planned stores. We expect that the net impact of these two changes will be an increase in the store count... With respect to timing, in light of the thousands of stores at issue, we expect that the definitive number of divestitures that the FTC will actually require is not likely to be known by Family Dollar or Dollar General for several months... We expect Dollar Tree to continue to make rapid progress in completing the antitrust clearance process pursuant to its binding undertakings in the merger agreement, including its covenant to divest as many stores as necessary or advisable to obtain such clearance. In sum, antitrust clearance of the Dollar Tree merger on its terms and in a timely manner is a virtual certainty."
