Tempur-Pedic Cleared by FTC to Acquire Sealy

LEXINGTON, Ky.-The Federal Trade Commission has cleared Tempur-Pedic's planned acquisition of Sealy.

A Tempur-Pedic statement said the company plans to close the acquisition on March 18, "subject to customary closing conditions." As previously announced, the deal calls for Tempur-Pedic to acquire all of Sealy's outstanding common stock for $2.20 per share, along with all of Sealy's outstanding convertible and nonconvertible debt. The total value of the transaction will be about $1.3 billion, the statement said.
