Harbinger Group offers to acquire Central Garden & Pet Company
Harbinger Group, the publicly traded holding company run by hedge fund manager Philip A Falcone, is offering to acquire, directly or through one of its affiliates, all of Central Garden & Pet Company for USD10.00 in cash per share.
The offer which Harbinger Group (HRG) made in a letter to the board of the Central Garden & Pet Company represents a 27.5 per cent premium over the company’s unaffected common stock price of USD7.84 at the close of business on 6 June.
HRG has also indicated that it may be able to further increase the value of its current proposals if the Central Garden & Pet Company board engages in a constructive dialogue and grants access to customary diligence materials.
