Skullcandy Agrees to Acquisition Deal

Under the terms of the merger agreement, an affiliate of Mill Road Capital will commence a cash tender offer to acquire Skullcandy’s outstanding shares of common stock for $6.35 per share, net to each holder in cash. This transaction is the result of a topping bid that resulted in the termination of Skullcandy’s merger agreement with Incipio. Cleary was counsel to Peter J. Solomon Company in connection with the earlier merger agreement as well.
