Prestige Brands Comments on Genomma Lab's Withdrawal of its Acquisition Proposal
Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PBH) today issued the following statement in response to Genomma Lab's withdrawal of its unsolicited acquisition proposal:
“Prestige has stated repeatedly that it is open to considering offers that would create compelling value for stockholders and offer certainty of closing. That is still the case. Prestige's Board of Directors carefully reviewed Genomma's proposal with the assistance of its financial and legal advisors and, after thorough consideration in accordance with its fiduciary duties, determined that the proposed price was inadequate and the proposal was not in the best interests of Prestige Brands and its stockholders. Over the past three years, Prestige has transformed its business through initiatives that have accelerated growth for its core OTC brands and acquisitions that have bolstered its position in the OTC market. The Company remains confident that its proven brand-building strategies will enable it to continue to deliver superior value and looks forward to updating stockholders on its strong performance and ongoing strategy in its upcoming earnings release and presentation on May 17, 2012.”
