Bon-Ton wins over Elder-Beerman
September 16, 2003,
Dayton, OH — After months of bids and counter-bids among two potential suitors, Elder-Beerman today announced it entered into a agreement to be acquired by The Bon-Ton. Elder-Beerman shareholders will receive $8 per share in cash — $1 more than Bon-Ton originally bid.
Within the next five days, Bon-Ton will commence a tender offer to purchase all outstanding shares, followed by a second step merger of Elder-Beerman with a subsidiary of Bon-Ton. The completion of the tender offer is conditioned, among other things, upon at least two-thirds of Elder-Beerman's outstanding common shares, on a fully diluted basis, being tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration date of the offer; the proceeds of the financings under Bon-Ton's commitment letters being available to Bon-Ton; and satisfaction of applicable regulatory requirements.
