Barnes & Noble to Separate College Business from Retail and Nook Digital Businesses

Barnes & Noble, Inc. announced the filing of a Registration Statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in order to effect a separation of Barnes & Noble Education (which comprises the Barnes & Noble College business) from Barnes & Noble's Retail and NOOK Digital businesses. The planned separation will, when consummated, create two independent, publicly traded companies. The separation is intended to be a tax-free distribution to Barnes & Noble shareholders and is anticipated to be completed by the end of August 2015, subject to customary conditions. Barnes & Noble believes that the separation will allow each business to optimize its strategic opportunities. As more focused companies with differing potential growth profiles, capital needs and market dynamics, each company will benefit from strategic clarity and separate management and Board focus. The separation will also allow investors to assess each business more clearly as a stand-alone company.

BKS Seeks Strategic Opportunities

Michael P. Huseby, Chief Executive Office of Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE:BKS), said, "Separating Barnes & Noble Education will create an industry-leading, pure-play public company with more flexibility to pursue strategic opportunities in the growing educational services markets. At the same time, Barnes & Noble will be able to better capitalize on improving industry trends and merchandising initiatives within its core Retail business. Retail and the NOOK Digital Business will be able to leverage a more integrated technology infrastructure for improved efficiency and to better serve digital customers."
