Aaron's Reportedly Thwarts Rent-A-Center's Approaches

Aaron's, Inc. (NYSE:AAN) turned down several informal takeover approaches in the last 12 months from Rent-A-Center, Inc. (NasdaqGS:RCII), according to people familiar with the matter. The sources added that Rent-A-Center's took place earlier this year but did not lead to serious discussions between the two companies. Aaron's opposed the approaches as it favors its standalone prospects and does not view Rent-A-Center's stock as a valuable acquisition currency. The sources added that there are currently no active talks between the companies. A representative for Aaron's declined to comment while Rent-A-Center did not immediately respond to requests for comment, Reuters added.

For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of $877,639,000 against $828,473,000 a year ago. Operating profit was $56,598,000 against $59,458,000 a year ago. Earnings before income taxes were $44,210,000 against $44,080,000 a year ago. Net earnings were $27,298,000 against $27,266,000 a year ago.
