08:28 EDTFDOFamily Dollar board rejects Dollar General's 'illusory' tender offer
Family Dollar Stores (FDO) announced that its Board of Directors unanimously recommends that Family Dollar’s shareholders reject the unsolicited conditional tender offer made by Dollar General Corporation (DG) and not tender their shares. In conjunction with its rejection of Dollar General’s offer, Family Dollar’s Board unanimously reaffirms its recommendation in support of the transaction with Dollar Tree (DLTR). The terms of the tender offer are the same as those in the proposal made by Dollar General on September 2, 2014, which the Board of Directors of Family Dollar unanimously rejected on September 5, 2014, on the basis of antitrust regulatory considerations. 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 tender offer and concluded unanimously that this highly conditional Offer is illusory because, as Dollar General is well aware, the Offer cannot close on the terms proposed. Tenders into the Dollar General Offer will be meaningless since there is no way that Dollar General can purchase shares that are tendered.” Levine added, “The terms of the Dollar General Offer are no different from those in its most recent unsolicited proposal, which was previously and unanimously rejected by our Board of Directors based on antitrust regulatory considerations. 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 tender offer 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.”
