On February 26, 2020, Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. ("DRH" or the “Company"), a public company (NASDAQ: SAUC), completed its previously announced merger with Patton Wings, an investment entity affiliated with ICV Partners, LLC (together with its affiliates, “ICV”).
Under the terms of the merger agreement, Patton Wings acquired all of the outstanding shares of DRH in a take-private transaction for $1.05 per share in cash, representing an approximate 123% premium to DRH’s closing share price on the day prior to announcement, and creating the largest franchisee in the Buffalo Wild Wings System.
Duff & Phelps served as the exclusive sell-side M&A advisor to DRH and rendered a fairness opinion to the board in connection with the transaction.
