Franchise Group owns and manages several retail outlets, including Pet Supplies Plus, Wag N' Wash, American Freight, The Vitamin Shoppe, Badcock Home Furniture & More, Buddy's Home Furnishings and Sylvan Learning. The company's largest shareholders include Brian R. Kahn and his private equity firm, Vintage Capital Management, LLC, who oversaw the acquisition of Franchise Group's various portfolio companies.
On May 10, 2023, Franchise Group announced that Kahn and other members of his management team reached a deal to buy out the company's other shareholders for just $30 per share, which values the company at approximately $2.6 billion. The deal is expected to close in the second half of 2023.
Julie & Holleman, whose attorneys have helped secure hundreds of millions of dollars for shareholders, is concerned about the inadequate deal price. The per share deal price is less than the 52-week high trading price of $44.25 per share, and it's also less than a $35 per share price target established by financial analysts. Julie & Holleman is also concerned about conflicts of interest. Franchise Group insiders are cashing out public shareholders while retaining an interest in the company's substantial upside potential.
