Hastings Entertainment, Inc. Enters into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Affiliate of Joel Weinshanker13:30 17.03.14


PR Newswire

AMARILLO, Texas, March 17, 2014

AMARILLO, Texas, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hastings Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAST), a leading multimedia entertainment retailer ("Hastings"), today reported that it has entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Draw Another Circle, LLC ("Parent") and Hendrix Acquisition Corp. ("Merger Sub"), which are each wholly-owned, directly or indirectly, by Joel Weinshanker.  Mr. Weinshanker is the President and sole shareholder of National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc., which holds approximately 12% of Hastings' outstanding shares ("NECA").  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Hastings, with Hastings surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent, and each share of Hastings common stock held by a shareholder of Hastings (other than Mr. Weinshanker and his affiliates) will, upon completion of the merger, be converted into the right to receive a cash payment of $3.00 per share.

The $3.00 per share price represents a premium of approximately 57.1% over Hastings' closing share price on March 14, 2014 and a premium of approximately 61.3% over the average trading price of Hastings' common shares for the last 30 trading days ending on March 12, 2014.  The transaction is valued at approximately $21.4 million.

Hastings' Board of Directors, acting upon the unanimous recommendation of a special committee of the board directors consisting of independent directors (the "Special Committee"), has unanimously approved the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and has resolved to recommend that Hastings' shareholders vote in favor of approving the Merger Agreement at a special meeting of the shareholders called specifically for such purpose.

"NECA is a significant supplier of movie, book and video game merchandise and collectibles to the Hastings superstores, and we've had a close and growing business relationship with Mr. Weinshanker over the last decade.  Mr. Weinshanker, through his affiliation with the estates of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Muhammad Ali, and his company's management of Graceland, is one of the leading drivers of the lifestyle industry, and we believe Hastings' business will continue to benefit from our relationship with him and NECA," said John H. Marmaduke, Hastings' Chairman and CEO.  

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, the closing of the merger, which is expected to occur in the second quarter of calendar 2014, is subject to shareholders holding at least two-thirds of Hastings' outstanding shares voting their shares in favor of approving the Merger Agreement and the fulfillment or waiver of other customary conditions, as more particularly set forth in the Merger Agreement.

In addition, Mr. Marmaduke and related beneficial owners who, together with Mr. Marmaduke, hold approximately 32% of Hastings' common stock, and NECA have each entered into agreements with Parent in which they have agreed to, among other things, vote all shares over which they have exercisable voting power in favor of the merger.  As a result, holders of approximately 44% of the Hastings' common stock have committed to vote for the merger.

SunTrust Robinson Humphrey and George K. Baum Capital Advisors, Inc. are serving as financial advisors to the Special Committee.  Kelly Hart & Hallman LLP is serving as legal advisor to Hastings, Haynes and Boone, LLP is serving as legal advisor to the Special Committee and Cooley LLP is serving as legal advisor to Parent and its affiliated entities.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WILL BE FILED WITH THE SEC

Hastings plans to file with the SEC and mail to its shareholders a Proxy Statement in connection with the transaction. The Proxy Statement will contain important information about Parent, Merger Sub, Mr. Weinshanker, Hastings, the transaction and related matters. INVESTORS AND SECURITY HOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT CAREFULLY WHEN IT IS AVAILABLE.

Investors and security holders will be able to obtain free copies of the Proxy Statement and other documents filed with the SEC by Hastings through the web site maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov or by phone, email or written request by contacting Hastings at the following:

PARTICIPANTS IN THE SOLICITATION

Hastings and its directors, executive officers and certain other members of management and employees of Hastings may be deemed "participants" in the solicitation of proxies from shareholders of Hastings in favor of the proposed merger. Information regarding the persons who may, under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, be considered participants in the solicitation of the shareholders of Hastings in connection with the proposed merger, and their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, which may be different from those of Hastings' shareholders generally, will be set forth in the Proxy Statement and the other relevant documents to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. You can find information about certain of Hastings' executive officers and its directors in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2013.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains "forward-looking statements," including statements as to our belief that Hastings' business will continue to benefit from its relationship with Mr. Weinshanker and NECA and our expectation that the acquisition will close in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.  These forward-looking statements are being made pursuant to the safe harbor provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended, and are based on currently available information and represent the beliefs of the management of Hastings.  These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially.

These factors include, but are not limited to, (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement after it has been signed, (2) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Hastings or others following the announcement of the Merger Agreement, (3) the inability to complete the merger due to an insufficient number of votes by Hastings' shareholders in favor of the Merger Agreement or the failure to satisfy other conditions contained in the Merger Agreement, (4) the risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of Hastings, (5) the actual timing of the closing of the acquisition, and (6) the costs, fees and expenses related to the transaction.  We undertake no obligation to affirm, publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.  Shareholders of Hastings are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements included in the Press Release, which speak only as of the date such statements are made.  Please refer to Hastings' annual, quarterly, and periodic reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more detailed discussion of these and other risks that could cause results to differ materially.

Hastings Entertainment, Inc. Announces Temporary Restraining Order in connection with Agreement and Plan of Merger with Affiliate of Joel Weinshanker
15:40 02.06.14

PR Newswire

AMARILLO, Texas, June 2, 2014

AMARILLO, Texas, June 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hastings Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAST), a leading multimedia entertainment retailer ("Hastings"), today reported that the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Amarillo Division, has issued an Order Granting Motion for Temporary Restraining Order and Setting Hearing on Request for a Preliminary Injunction (the "Order") restricting the potential merger transaction involving Hastings and an affiliate of Mr. Joel Weinshanker.  As Hastings first disclosed on March 17, 2014, Hastings entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") on such date with Draw Another Circle, LLC ("Parent") and Hendrix Acquisition Corp. ("Merger Sub"), which are each wholly-owned, directly or indirectly, by Mr. Weinshanker.  Mr. Weinshanker is the President and sole shareholder of National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc., which holds approximately 12% of Hastings' outstanding shares ("NECA").  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Hastings, with Hastings surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent, and each share of Hastings common stock held by a shareholder of Hastings (other than Mr. Weinshanker and his affiliates) will, upon completion of the merger, be converted into the right to receive a cash payment of $3.00 per share.

On March 28, 2014, a lawsuit challenging the merger, captioned CV-00072-J—Andreas Oberegger and David A. Capps, directly and derivatively on behalf of Hastings Entertainment, Inc., v. Danny W. Gurr, Ann S. Lieff, Frank O. Marrs, John H. Marmaduke, Jeffrey G. Shrader, Draw Another Circle, LLC, Hendrix Acquisition Corp., Joel Weinshanker and National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc., as defendants, and Hastings Entertainment, Inc., as a nominal defendant, was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Amarillo Division. The plaintiffs are purported shareholders of Hastings and are alleging, among other things, that the merger contemplated in the Merger Agreement provides for insufficient consideration to be paid to Hastings' shareholders in exchange for their shares of Hastings' common stock, that the officers and directors of Hastings breached their respective fiduciary duties in the course of negotiating and approving the Merger Agreement and that the other defendants aided and abetted such breach of fiduciary duties.  The lawsuit seeks to enjoin the merger or rescind the merger if it is consummated and compensatory damages in an unspecified amount.

On May 28, 2014, the plaintiffs filed a motion for expedited discovery and a motion for entry of a temporary restraining order to enjoin the proposed transaction from closing.  On May 30, 2014, two days after the plaintiffs filed this motion, the Court issued the Order in response to this motion.  Under the terms of the Order, Hastings is restricted, among other things, from consummating the merger prior to June 12, 2014, on which date a hearing has been scheduled with respect to the Order.

Hastings believes that the lawsuit was improperly and prematurely filed under Texas law and that the claims alleged therein are factually incorrect and deficient as a matter of law.  Hastings also believes that the grounds upon which the plaintiffs sought the Order are insufficient as a matter of fact and law.  Hastings intends to vigorously dispute these claims at the June 12 hearing with respect to the Order and throughout the life of this litigation.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WILL BE FILED WITH THE SEC

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains "forward-looking statements," including statements as to our belief that Hastings' business will continue to benefit from its relationship with Mr. Weinshanker and NECA and our expectation that the acquisition will close in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.  These forward-looking statements are being made pursuant to the safe harbor provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended, and are based on currently available information and represent the beliefs of the management of Hastings.  These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially.

These factors include, but are not limited to, (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement after it has been signed, (2) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Hastings or others following the announcement of the Merger Agreement, (3) the inability to complete the merger due to an insufficient number of votes by Hastings' shareholders in favor of the Merger Agreement or the failure to satisfy other conditions contained in the Merger Agreement, (4) the risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of Hastings, (5) the actual timing of the closing of the acquisition, and (6) the costs, fees and expenses related to the transaction.  We undertake no obligation to affirm, publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.  Shareholders of Hastings are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements included in the Press Release, which speak only as of the date such statements are made.  Please refer to Hastings' annual, quarterly, and periodic reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more detailed discussion of these and other risks that could cause results to differ materially.

PR Newswire

AMARILLO, Texas, July 15, 2014

AMARILLO, Texas, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hastings Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAST), a leading multimedia entertainment retailer ("Hastings"), today reported that, on July 15, 2014, Hastings' shareholders approved the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") entered into on March 17, 2014 by and among Hastings, Draw Another Circle, LLC ("Parent") and Hendrix Acquisition Corp. ("Merger Sub"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent, at a special meeting of Hastings' shareholders called for the purpose of approving the Merger Agreement and certain related matters.  Immediately following the approval of the Merger Agreement by Hastings' shareholders, Merger Sub was merged with and into Hastings, with Hastings surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent, an affiliate of Mr. Joel Weinshanker.

In connection with this merger, each share of Hastings' common stock outstanding prior to the merger (other than shares held by Parent and its affiliates and shares held by any shareholder that properly exercised rights of dissent and appraisal under Texas law) was converted into the right to receive $3.00, in cash and without interest.

Mr. Weinshanker, the President of Parent, said, "It's an honor and a privilege to be able to be part of the next chapter of such an important American retailer as Hastings.  We will continue to run the business with the same ethical standards and values that the Marmadukes founded and built the chain on."
