PetSmart-Petco Merger Talks Reportedly Stall Over Antitrust Risk

PetSmart, Inc. reportedly stalks to acquire Petco Holdings, Inc. have stalled over disagreements about sharing the risk of getting the deal approved by U.S. antitrust authorities, people familiar with the matter said on October 9, 2015. While the two companies remain interested in clinching a deal, Petco has turned down a proposal to compensate PetSmart in the event that the Federal Trade Commission asks for excessive store closures to allow the deal to go through, the people said. The impasse has led to Petco asking private equity firms, including Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO), Hellman & Friedman LLC, CVC Capital Partners Limited and KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), to submit their final acquisition offers in the coming weeks, according to the sources. Petco's private equity owners, TPG Capital, L.P. and Leonard Green & Partners, L.P., are hoping to sell the company for more than $5 billion, including debt, though a challenging debt market and regulatory curbs on risky loans will make it difficult for some buyout firms to meet that price, the people said. The sources asked not to be identified because the negotiations are confidential. Petco, KKR, TPG and Hellman & Friedman declined to comment, while PetSmart, Apollo, CVC and Leonard Green did not respond to requests for comment.
