Dynamex Inc. (NASDAQ: DDMX) (the “Company”) announced today it has accepted an increased offer to be acquired by an affiliate of Greenbriar Equity Group LLC (together with its affiliates, “Greenbriar”) for a price of $24.00 per share, or approximately $237.8 million. The price per share offered by Greenbriar matched the price per share included in a modified proposal that the Company had received from the “excluded party” referred to in the press release issued by the Company on November 23, 2010. The Company and Greenbriar have signed an amendment to their previously announced merger agreement reflecting the new offer price, a revised termination fee of approximately $7.7 million, which is payable by the Company in the event that the Company terminates the merger agreement with Greenbriar in order to accept an unsolicited takeover proposal that the Company’s board determines to be superior to Greenbriar’s increased offer, a revised reverse break-up fee of approximately $14.3 million, which is payable by Greenbriar if the merger fails to close because the debt financing is unavailable, and a revised reverse break-up fee of approximately $21.4 million, which is payable by Greenbriar upon termination of the merger agreement by the Company as a result of a material breach of the merger agreement by Greenbriar.
