14:05 EDTSPLSStaples, Office Depot shares head lower as analyst highlights merger pitfalls
Shares of Staples (SPLS) and Office Depot (ODP) are in negative territory following a Citi research note identifying significant downside potential if their proposed merger is blocked. The note follows news on June 23 that a U.S. District Court has approved the preliminary injunction of the US Foods-Sysco (SYY) merger. WHAT'S NEW: In the wake of the FTC's preliminary injunction of the US Foods-Sysco deal, Citi's Kate McShane issued a note on the proposed merger of Staples and Office Depot. The FTC is expected to release a public version of its Sysco ruling this Friday, and McShane said details of the injunction could shed light on whether the Staples-Office Depot merger is likely to follow a similar path. The analyst sees a 40% and 49% downside scenario for Staples and Office Depot, respectively, were the merger to fail, versus a 20% upside for Office Depot shares if a successful outcome is reached. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The FTC stated on June 23 that the Sysco-US Foods merger "would lead to higher prices and diminished service," and U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta cited the probability of "substantially" reduced competition. Building on those pieces of information, Kate McShane notes that a merged Staples-Office Depot may only capture 15%-25% of the addressable market, in contrast to the 75% market share of a Sysco and US Foods combination. McShane cautioned that if she limits her analysis to just Fortune 100 companies, the 15%-25% figure would likely be higher, but refrains from stronger speculation on the probability of the deal closing. On June 24, the New York Post cited sources calling the merger "unlikely" after the Sysco injunction. As noted by Citi, if regulator sentiment swings against the office supply companies, shares could head sharply lower. PRICE ACTION: Staples is down 0.4% in afternoon trading, while Office Depot is down 0.3%.
