16:26 EDTJWNNordstrom sees Trunk Club acquisition dilutive to FY14 EPS by 3%-5%
On July 31, Nordstrom announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire Trunk Club, a personalized clothing service for men. Trunk Club is a high-growth company and expects to achieve operational profitability and more than double its annual sales to over $100M. The company believes this acquisition represents a natural extension of its core business, aligns with its strategic priorities around a relevant customer experience and accelerates entry into this fast-growing market. The company will acquire Trunk Club for $350M in Nordstrom stock, a portion of which is retention-based and subject to future vesting. In addition, the transaction includes a long-term management incentive plan of up to $100M subject to Trunk Club's performance. The transaction is expected to be dilutive to earnings per diluted share for the next several years primarily due to share issuance, performance incentives and amortization of intangibles. The company estimates the acquisition, including Trunk Club’s projected operating performance, will reduce earnings per diluted share in FY14 by 3%-5%. Trunk Club will operate as an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary and will be managed by its current leadership. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter, subject to closing conditions including customary regulatory and shareholder approvals.
