Following the transaction, Alberto-Culver will be a $1.4 billion in annual sales global branded consumer products company.
“Our Consumer Products group and Sally Beauty Company have both matured into strong, independent businesses, each generating handsome revenue, earnings and cash flow and having strong growth potential,” said Carol L. Bernick, chairman of the board, Alberto-Culver Company. “By separating the companies, we have better positioned them to execute their business strategies and compete more effectively. We believe this transaction will provide strong benefits for the shareholders of both Alberto-Culver and Regis Corporation.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Alberto-Culver Company shareholders, in addition to retaining their current Alberto-Culver shareholdings, will receive 0.6 shares of Regis Corporation in respect of each share of Alberto-Culver Company they own. At closing, Regis Corporation will have approximately 102 million diluted shares outstanding, and Alberto-Culver Company shareholders will own approximately 54.5% of the shares in the combined company. The spin/merge transaction is intended to be tax-free to Alberto-Culver and its shareholders.
