What Happened: In a Tuesday letter to Spirit shareholders, JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes declared his company’s “already superior proposal” would be sweetened with an “increased accelerated prepayment to $2.50 per share, structured as a cash dividend to Spirit shareholders promptly following the Spirit shareholder vote approving the combination between Spirit and JetBlue (subject to CARES Act limitations).”
Why It Matters: Hayes also promised an “enhanced reverse break-up fee of $400 million payable to Spirit in the unlikely event the transaction is not consummated for antitrust reasons,” along with a ticking fee mechanism designed to provide shareholders with monthly pre-payments of 10-cents per share between January 2023 and the date when JetBlue’s offer is either consummated or terminated.
