Revlon, Inc. v. MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings, Inc.
Citation:506 A.2d 173 (1986)
Ronald O. Perelman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Pantry Pride, met with Michael C. Bergerac, to discuss a friendly acquisition of Revlon by Pantry Pride. On August 19, the Revlon board met to consider the impending threat of a hostile bid by Pantry Pride. Pantry Pride made its first hostile move on August 23, with a cash tender offer for all shares of Revlon at $47.50 per common share. The Revlon directors advised the stockholders to reject the offer. Further defensive measures also were planned. On August 29, Revlon commenced its own offer for up to 10 million shares, exchanging for each share of common stock tendered one Senior Subordinated Note of $47.50 principal at 11.75% interest. The Revlon board rejected the latest Pantry Pride offer and approved the Forstmann’s proposal.
