Perry Ellis enters into $437M transaction to become private company

Perry Ellis International announced it has entered into a definitive merger agreement under which a newly formed entity controlled by George Feldenkreis, Perry Ellis' founder and member of the company's Board of Directors, will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Perry Ellis not already beneficially owned by the Feldenkreis family for $27.50 per share in cash. Additionally, the company and George Feldenkreis have agreed to defer the next annual meeting for the election of directors while the merger agreement is pending. The purchase price represents a premium of approximately 21.6% to Perry Ellis' unaffected closing stock price on February 5, 2018, the last trading day prior to George Feldenkreis announcing his proposal to take the Company private. The transaction is valued at approximately $437M. The transaction was unanimously approved by the Perry Ellis Board of Directors, acting on the unanimous recommendation of a Special Committee of independent directors that was granted full authority to conduct a comprehensive strategic review and evaluate and, if warranted, negotiate the Feldenkreis acquisition proposal. Following completion of the transaction, Oscar Feldenkreis will continue to lead the company as Chief Executive Officer. George Feldenkreis, Director and Founder, will return to an active role in the management of the company. Perry Ellis will continue to be headquartered in Miami, Florida. Upon close, Perry Ellis will become a privately held company and Perry Ellis common shares will no longer be listed or traded on any public market. The transaction, which is expected to close in the second half of calendar year 2018, is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and approvals, including approval by Perry Ellis shareholders, receipt of regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Southwest (LUV) downgraded to In-Line from Outperform at Imperial Capital with analyst Michael Derchin saying he expects Southwest to face unit revenue pressures through fiscal 2019 from higher capacity growth in the "weaker" off-peak period as well as heightened competition in California and Denver. 2. AbbVie (ABBV) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Christopher Raymond saying the stock's risk/reward, while once compelling on the reward side, may be skewing increasingly toward risk. 3. Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the company faces challenges both in its core consumer business and in its hydroponics operation, which serves the cannabis market. 4. Owens Corning (OC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus. 5. Perry Ellis (PERY) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at IFS Securities and to Neutral from Buy at Sidoti.
