Sears Holdings Corporation announced that its board approved the separation of its Lands' End business by means of a pro-rata spin-off transaction. To effect the spin-off, Sears Holdings will distribute all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Lands' End on a pro rata basis to holders of Sears Holdings common stock, except that holders of Sears Holdings' restricted stock that is unvested as of the record date will receive cash awards in lieu of shares. These cash awards will be subject to vesting requirements. The distribution will be made to Sears Holdings' stockholders of record on March 24, the record date for the distribution. The distribution is expected to occur on April 4. In the distribution, Sears Holdings stockholders will receive 0.300795 shares of Lands' End common stock for each share of Sears Holdings common stock. Following the spin-off, Sears Holdings will continue to be listed under the symbol "SHLD," while Lands' End expects to list its common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "LE." Following the spin-off, Lands' End will be a publicly traded company independent from Sears Holdings, and Sears Holdings will not retain any Lands' End common stock.

11:17 EDTSHLDSears to have about 1,700 Sears, Kmart stores in operation going into 2015
On a company blog post, Sears CEO Eddie Lampert said: "At our most recent Town Hall meeting with our associates, I explained that I want us to operate our stores both profitably and with excellence. Both, not just one or the other.This is the background behind our decision to close more than 200 Kmart and Sears stores in 2014. Most of these stores were losing money, some for a long time. Because of the impact on our dedicated associates and our Shop Your Way members, these decisions were not taken lightly, or without our working to improve the performance of these stores over many years. Going into 2015, we will have approximately 1,700 Sears and Kmart big box stores in operation, representing about 200 million square feet of space." Reference Link
