Dollar stores joining forces

Dollar stores joining forces

If everything in its stores costs a buck, it will take 8.5 billion items sold for Dollar Tree stores to buy rival Family Dollar.

Dollar Tree (DLTR) is buying its larger rival for $74.50 a share, 23% more than Family Dollar’s closing price on Friday, for a total value of $8.5 billion.

Combined, the two chains have more than 13,000 stores and annual revenue of $18 billion. That would surpass the current leader in the dollar-store sector,Dollar General (DG), which has more than 11,000 stores and revenue of $17.5 billion.

Dollar Tree plans to continue to operate both the Dollar Tree and Family Dollar brands. It expects the deal to close early next year.

A big winner in the deal is activist investor Carl Icahn, who holds 9.4% of Family Dollar shares, according to sales tracker LionShares. Icahn acquired most of the shares in the past year.

Shares of the company shot up in June when Icahn disclosed his stake, but have given back most of the gains since. The stock is down nearly 6% for the year through Friday’s close.

Shares of Family Dollar (FDO) soared on the news in premarket trading.
