    [$$] Staples to Acquire Essendant for $482.7 Million

    Staples Inc. has agreed to acquire office-supplies company Essendant Inc. in a deal worth $482.7 million in cash, a combination that would strengthen one of the world’s largest office-solutions providers. After previously resisting overtures from Staples, Essendant said Monday that a sweetened offer from the office-supplies retailer of $12.80 a share was superior to the one it had pending with Genuine Parts Co. Genuine Parts, a supplier of automotive parts as well as office products, had three days to change its offer, but said Monday it wouldn’t make a new offer and expected the deal agreement to end.

    Staples To Acquire Essendant For $12.80 Per Share In Cash

    The transaction follows the determination by Essendant's Board of Directors, after consultation with Essendant's legal and financial advisors, that the Staples proposal constituted a "Superior Proposal" as defined in Essendant's previously announced merger agreement to combine with Genuine Parts Company's (GPC) ("GPC") S.P. Richards business (the "S.P. Richards agreement").  Consistent with that determination, and following the expiration of the three-day waiting period during which GPC did not propose any amendments to the S.P. Richards agreement, Essendant terminated that agreement.  In connection with the termination, GPC is entitled to a $12 million break-up fee, which Staples is paying as part of its agreement with Essendant. "We are excited about the opportunity to move forward with this agreement, and to work with the Essendant team to complete the partnership of these two great companies, which will ultimately deliver significant value to independent resellers and end customers across the U.S.," Staples said.
