09:19 EDTWMTDollar General says remains committed to purchase of Family Dollar
Dollar General Corporation (DG) issued the following statement in response to comments made by Dollar Tree (DLTR) regarding its view of potential store divestitures that may be required by the FTC in either a Dollar Tree/Family Dollar Stores (FDO) or a Dollar General/Family Dollar combination. Dollar Generalís documents and data tell a very different story from that contained in the press release issued today by Dollar Tree. As Dollar General previously has stated, Walmart (WMT), not Family Dollar, is the primary driver regarding Dollar Generalís strategic pricing decisions, and more than 90% of Dollar Generalís SKUs are nationally priced. Dollar General is confident that its approach to strategic and pricing decisions is both correct and superior to that of Family Dollar and Dollar General has no intention of adopting a flawed strategy -- either now or after an acquisition of Family Dollar -- that it believes would impair its ability to compete with Walmart and lead to inferior financial performance. Dollar General is actively engaged in discussions with the FTC regarding the extent of potential divestitures that would be required in connection with an acquisition of Family Dollar and has been making good progress. Over the past few weeks, Dollar General has provided the FTC with tens of thousands of documents supporting the above facts and its broad view of competition. There is no reason to believe that the FTC would take into account only Family Dollarís documents and data or afford them greater significance than Dollar General's own evidence. As stated in Dollar General's press release of December 4, Dollar General will continue to work with the FTC and expects to provide an update in sufficient time to allow Family Dollar shareholders to review such information prior to the Family Dollar shareholdersí meeting now scheduled for December 23.
