After the acquisition, Manpower’s organizational consulting business, The Empower Group, will be merged into Right.
Wednesday, Right’s stock had a closing price of $17.16 on the New York Stock Exchange, but Manpower will purchase Right’s common stock for $18.75 per share. The acquisition will be completed tax free for Right shareholders, except if shareholders receive cash for fractional shares, according to a statement.
Once the initial exchange is completed, Manpower will acquire any remaining Right stock in a second-step merger.
