08:31 EDTFDO, DGFamily Dollar rejects revised Dollar General offer due to antitrust issues
Family Dollar Stores (FDO) that its Board of Directors has unanimously rejected the revised, non-binding proposal made by Dollar General Corporation (DG) on September 2 on the basis of antitrust regulatory considerations. Family Dollar’s merger agreement with Dollar Tree (DLTR) contains a customary provision that permits Family Dollar to enter into discussions and share information with any competing bidder, but only if the Board is able to determine that failure to do so would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties and that the unsolicited, written proposal from the competing bidder would be reasonably expected to lead to a proposal that is not only financially superior, but also “reasonably likely to be completed on the terms proposed.” Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO of Family Dollar, said, “Our Board of Directors, with the assistance of outside advisors and consultants, reviewed all aspects of Dollar General’s revised proposal and unanimously concluded that it is not reasonably likely to be completed on the terms proposed. There is a very real and material risk that the transaction proposed by Dollar General would fail to close, after a lengthy and disruptive review process. Accordingly, our Board has rejected Dollar General’s revised proposal and reaffirmed its support of the transaction with Dollar Tree, which delivers attractive value in the form of immediate upfront cash and upside participation in a combined Dollar Tree-Family Dollar entity, as well as closing certainty.” Ed Garden, a Family Dollar director and co-founder and Chief Investment Officer at Trian Fund Management, L.P., a large shareholder of the Company, stated, “We are focused on delivering to Family Dollar shareholders the highest value with certainty, and the Dollar Tree transaction does just that. Dollar Tree has taken the antitrust risk off the table by committing to divest as many stores as necessary to obtain antitrust clearance. We remain fully committed to the Dollar Tree transaction.”

06:27 EDTDG, FDONew Dollar General offer might not woo Family Dollar, Reuters says
Dollar General's (DG) improved bid to purchase Family Dollar (FDO) for $9.1B might not be able to reduce its smaller competitors worries that U.S. antitrust regulators will hinder the agreement from transpiring, according to Reuters, citing two sources familiar with the matter. Family Dollar is already in the throes of an agreement to sell itself for $8.5B to Dollar Tree (DLTR). Reference Link
