SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz LLP Investigates Claims That the Merger May Not Be in the Best Interest of Investors of Family Dollar Stores, Inc. - FDO

Companies mentioned in this article: Pomerantz LLP

NEW YORK, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Family Dollar Stores, Inc. ("Family Dollar" or the "Company") (NYSE: FDO) (ISIN: US3070001090) (CUSIP: 307000109) concerning the proposed acquisition of Family Dollar by Dollar Tree, Inc.

Family Dollar shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.

The investigation concerns whether the Family Dollar directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the proposed acquisition, each outstanding share of Family Dollar common stock will be exchanged for $59.60 in cash and $14.90 equivalent in Dollar Tree shares, for a total consideration of $74.50 per Family Dollar share. However, the Price to Revenue and EBITDA multiples are below the averages of comparable transactions. Additionally, an analyst recently set a price target for Family Dollar of $79.00 per share.
