The merger consideration will be used by DG to pay off all outstanding debt and fund a planned cash distribution to DG stockholders of approximately $3 per share. In addition, DG stockholders will receive a distribution of one share of common stock of the newly formed subsidiary of DG that will hold the assets and liabilities associated with DG's online advertising business for each share of DG common stock in partial redemption of their DG shares.

Following the closing of the transaction and the cash distribution, DG's newly formed online advertising business is expected to have total cash of approximately $60 million and total working capital of approximately $60 million, including cash and working capital from DG's television business.
