More Than 2,700 Marketing Consultants Advising 665,000 Local Businesses in the U.S.
Dex One Corporation and SuperMedia Inc. today announced the completion of their merger, creating Dex Media, Inc. — one of the largest national providers of social, local and mobile marketing solutions through direct relationships with local businesses. The common stock of Dex Media will begin trading May 1, 2013 on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol: DXM.
Completion of the merger occurred simultaneously with each company’s emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today. Each of Dex OneCorporation’s and SuperMedia Inc.’s “pre-packaged” Plans of Reorganization became effective following confirmation of the plans by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on April 29, 2013.
Dex Media estimates it will realize approximately $150-$175 million of annual run rate cost synergies by 2015, and expects to preserve access to Dex One’s remaining tax attributes and generate future attributes, in aggregate totaling as much as $1.8 billion, to offset income attributable to the combined company following the completion of the transaction.
Under the terms of the agreement, legacy Dex One shareholders received 0.20 shares for each Dex One share they owned, and legacy SuperMedia shareholders received 0.4386 shares for each SuperMedia share they owned. Dex One shareholders now own approximately 60 percent and SuperMedia shareholders now own approximately 40 percent of Dex Media’s newly issued common stock.
While the corporate entity will be called Dex Media, the Dex One and SuperMedia brands, client-facing operations and communications will continue under the Dex One and SuperMedia brand names. Dex Media headquarters are in Dallas.
Dex One was reorganized in 2010 and had previously operated as the Reuben H. Donnelley Corporation.
