The Home Depot, Inc., the world’s largest home improvement retailer, has been notified that Tutanota LLC (“Tutanota”) has made an unsolicited “mini-tender” offer to purchase up to 1 million shares of Home Depot’s common stock, at an offer price of $360 per share. While this offer price is above the current market price of the company’s common stock, the offer is conditioned upon, among other things, the closing price of Home Depot’s common stock exceeding $360 per share on the last trading day before the offer expires. This means that shares tendered in the offer will only be accepted if the offer price is below the closing market price. In fact, the offer states that as of the date of the offer, Tutanota expects to extend the offer until the market price of Home Depot’s common stock exceeds the offer price.

There is no guarantee the conditions of the offer will be satisfied. Under the terms of the offer, Tutanota can extend the offer and delay payment beyond the expiration date of the offer, currently scheduled for 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Friday, June 18, 2021. The offer states that Tutanota intends either to extend the offer until the company’s stock price exceeds $360 per share or to terminate or amend the offer if the stock price has not exceeded that amount by May 17, 2022.
