Dollar General Corporation, Family Dollar Stores Inc. - M&A Call

To discuss the Acquisition of Family Dollar Stores Inc. by Dollar General Corporation

Family Dollar Stores Inc. Announces Dividend Payment for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2015, Begins September 1, 2014

Family Dollar Stores Inc. will pay one last cash dividend to its shareholders before it is acquired by Dollar Tree Inc. Under terms of the purchase agreement, Family Dollar is allowed to issue a final 31-cent dividend during the first quarter of fiscal 2015, which begins September 1, 2014.

Class-Action Lawsuit Filed Against Family Dollar Stores Inc. and Dollar Tree Inc

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Family Dollar Stores Inc. and Dollar Tree Inc. tied to their acquisition plans. That filing in Delaware Chancery Court also names all members of Family Dollar's board of directors as defendants. It alleges that Family Dollar, Dollar Tree and the board have violated their fiduciary duties at the expense of Family Dollar's shareholders. The cash and stock agreement is valued at $74.50 per share - a nearly 23% premium over the stock's closing price on July 25, 2014. The acquisition is slated to close in early 2015. The lawsuit alleges the deal offers unfair and inadequate consideration that does not constitute a maximization of stockholder value. The filing states that analysts have projected that the inherent value of the Family Dollar is worth at least $79 per share. The lawsuit alleges that Family Dollar's board has breached fiduciary duties owed to shareholders to take all necessary steps to ensure shareholders receive maximum value. It notes the deal includes provisions that stand to benefit Dollar Tree. Examples given include a no-solicitation provision that prevents Family Dollar from soliciting other potential buyers or continuing discussions. Dollar Tree has five days to match any competing proposal and there is a $305 million termination fee tied to ending the deal. It cites potential conflicts of interest with Levine being Family Dollar's large stockholder and a member of the Family Dollar's board. He is slated to receive about $130 million from the sale of his stock. The lawsuit was filed by Peter Andrews, with Andrews & Springer LLC in Delaware.
