Shiseido Co., Ltd. (Tokyo Stock Exchange, First Section: 4911) (“Shiseido”), the Japan-based leading global cosmetics company, announced today the successful completion of a tender offer through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Blush Acquisition Corporation (“Purchaser”), for all outstanding shares of common stock of Bare Escentuals, Inc. (NASDAQ: BARE) (“Bare Escentuals”) for $18.20 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.
The tender offer and withdrawal rights expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Monday, March 8, 2010. BNY Mellon Shareowner Services, the depositary for the tender offer, has advised that, as of the expiration time, 80,005,604 shares (including 3,064,295 shares subject to guarantees of delivery) were validly tendered and not withdrawn, representing approximately 86.9 % of all outstanding shares of common stock of Bare Escentuals. All shares that were validly tendered and not properly withdrawn have been accepted for purchase. Purchaser will promptly pay for such shares, at the offer price of $18.20 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.
Shiseido also announced that Purchaser will provide a subsequent offering period for all remaining shares of Bare Escentuals common stock to permit stockholders who have not yet tendered their shares the opportunity to do so. This subsequent offering period will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Thursday, March 11, 2010. The same $18.20 per share cash consideration offered during the initial offering period will be paid to holders of Bare Escentuals’ common stock who tender their shares during the subsequent offering period. The procedures for tendering shares during the subsequent offering period are the same as during the initial offering period, except that (i) the guaranteed delivery procedures may not be used during the subsequent offering period and (ii) shares tendered during the subsequent offering period may not be withdrawn.
