Wolf Popper LLP Investigates the Proposed Acquisition of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. by Its Controlling Shareholder, Edward Lampert

NEW YORK, April 8, 2019

Wolf Popper LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors in Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq: SHOS), concerning the proposed going private transaction of Sears Hometown by Edward Lampert, Sears Hometown’s majority shareholder, through his hedge fund ESL Investments, Inc.  According to Carl Stine, a partner at Wolf Popper LLP, “Edward Lampert currently owns almost 60% of Sears Hometown’s outstanding shares and his $2.25 per share offer looks like an attempt to steal the company with a low-ball bid.”
