10:23 EDTODPStarboard says Staples should explore merger with Office Depot
Starboard Value, one of the largest shareholders of Staples (SPLS), confirmed, as previously reported, that it has delivered a letter to Ronald Sargent, Chairman and CEO of Staples, and the board of directors of Staples. In the letter, Starboard states in part: "As we discussed in our recent meeting, we believe that the best way to maximize value for Staples' shareholders is through exploring and completing a business combination with Office Depot (ODP). For a variety of reasons, we believe that now is the right time to pursue such a transaction, and we urge you to immediately retain a reputable investment bank and legal advisors to assist the Board in evaluating, structuring and executing a transaction with Office Depot. We believe that a strategic combination of Staples and Office Depot would result in synergies that would more than double the operating profits of the combined company and would create an industry-leading office supply retailer that could more effectively compete against larger retailers and online competitors. The magnitude of value creation from such a business combination far exceeds anything that either company could achieve on a standalone basis. We believe that the evidence is clear that shareholders are broadly supportive of a transaction between Staples and Office Depot. As shown in the chart below, since the merger speculation began last September, Staples' share price has risen over 50%, strongly outperforming the S&P 500...After the recent increase in Staples' share price, we believe the stock now trades at a substantial premium to the intrinsic value of the standalone company. This results in a lower cost of capital for Staples and a stronger currency which could be used to acquire Office Depot. If Staples fails to fully explore and consummate a transaction with Office Depot, shareholders will undoubtedly be extremely disappointed...We understand that this will require cooperation from Office Depot, and we have already expressed to them our strong support for a transaction...Our sincere hope is that we can continue to have a constructive dialogue. However, if it becomes clear to us that you have no intention of seriously pursuing this unique and highly attractive opportunity, it would be a clear sign that significant leadership change is needed at Staples."
