(Reuters) - Family Dollar Stores Inc <FDO.N> rejected Dollar General Corp's <DG.N> $9.1 billion sweetened takeover offer, saying it was not reasonably likely to be completed on the terms proposed.
"There is a very real and material risk that the transaction proposed by Dollar General would fail to close, after a lengthy and disruptive review process," Family Dollar Chief Executive Howard Levine said in a statement.
Family Dollar said it would stick with an $8.5 billion cash-and-stock offer from Dollar Tree Inc <DLTR.O>.
