(Reuters) - Family Dollar Stores Inc <FDO.N> rejected Dollar General Corp's <DG.N> acquisition offer, citing antitrust concerns, and reaffirmed its support for a buyout offer from Dollar Tree Inc <DLTR.O>.
"Our board reviewed, with our advisors, all aspects of Dollar General's proposal and unanimously concluded that it is not reasonably likely to be completed on the terms proposed," Family Dollar's Chief Executive Howard Levine said in a statement.
He also said Dollar General's letter, sent late on Wednesday, "contained blatant mischaracterizations and did nothing to address the antitrust issues in Dollar General's proposal".
