16:38 EDTFDODollar Tree discloses update on FTC review process of Family Dollar acquisition
Dollar Tree (DLTR) disclosed in a regulatory filing, the following update on the Federal Trade Commission’s review process of the company’s pending acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO). As of April 1, the FTC’s staff has substantially completed its review and identified approximately 340 stores for divestiture, representing approximately $47.4M of operating income. The company expects that all or almost all of the stores that will be divested will be Family Dollar stores. The company continues to make progress with divestiture buyers and has received multiple indications of interest from buyers, each of whom intend to operate these divested locations as dollar stores to address the FTC's concerns. The company is working to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected bidders in April 2015 and in parallel to secure FTC approval. The company intends to close the proposed merger in May, but this timing is subject to certain factors beyond the company’s control, including FTC approval.
