The Bass Pros - Acquisition by Bass Pro Shops - Netflix
On October 3, 2016, Cabela's announced Bass Pro Shops will acquire Cabela’s for $5.5 billion. Both companies are major outdoor apparel and equipment retailers. During mergers, the synergies between entities is emphasized, however it seems that both retailers in this instance have complementary business philosophies, product offerings and expertise. Further the two retailers have different geographic footprints. Cabela’s 85 stores are concentrated in Canada and the Eastern USA. Bass Pro Shops, conversely, has 99 stores with a concentration in the Western USA and Canada. Tommy Milner stressed that the company had reviewed a range of options that would maximize value, with the Cabela's board choosing to be acquired by Bass Pro Shops. The new entity will keep Cabela’s base in Sidney and Lincoln, Nebraska. John Morris will continue as CEO of the new entity, and will be the majority shareholder of the new privately held entity. The deal is being financed via preferred equity financing from Goldman Sachs and Pamplona Capital Management. Goldman Sachs will contribute $1.8 billion towards financing and Pamplona will contribute the remainder for a total commitment of $2.4 billion. The new entity was expected to be formed and in operation in Q1 or Q2 of 2017. On July 5, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission approved the merger of Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops. The merger was complete on September 25, 2017.
