Sears Holdings Corporation Announces Filing Of Registration Statement For Spin-Off Of Lands' End Business

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SHLD) announced that, in connection with its previously announced consideration of a separation of its Lands' End business, Lands' End, Inc. filed today a registration statement on Form 10 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Sears Holdings intends to spin off its Lands' End business through the pro rata distribution of all of the shares of common stock of Lands' End, Inc. We expect that the spin-off will be tax-free to U.S. stockholders except for any cash received in lieu of fractional shares. The spin-off is subject to the approval of the Board of Directors of Sears Holdings and the satisfaction of certain other conditions. Sears Holdings may, at any time until the spin-off, decide to abandon the spin-off or modify or change the terms of the spin-off. Holders of Sears Holdings common stock as of the record date for the spin-off will not be required to make any payment, surrender or exchange any shares of Sears Holdings common stock or take any other action to participate in the spin-off. Additional information concerning Lands' End and the proposed spin-off is contained in the registration statement on Form 10.
