The transaction was unanimously approved by the PetSmart Board and is expected to close in the first half of 2015.

“We are pleased to have reached this agreement with BC Partners, which maximizes value for all of our shareholders and best positions PetSmart to continue to meet the needs of pet parents,” said Gregory P. Josefowicz, chairman of PetSmart. “This transaction represents the successful conclusion of our extensive review of strategic alternatives.”
