Ascena Retail Group Inc. and Charming Shoppes Inc. jointly announced that Ascena has successfully completed its tender offer fr the outstanding shares of common stock of Charming.

The depositary for the offer has advised Ascena that, as of the expiration of the offer at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Tuesday, June 12, 2012, a total of approximately 95,742,871 Charming shares were validly tendered in the offer and not withdrawn (including approximately 3,772,371 shares delivered through notices of guaranteed delivery), representing approximately 81.5% of the outstanding common stock of Charming. Shares tendered through notices of guaranteed delivery are required to be delivered to Ascena by Friday, June 15, 2012.

Ascena, through a designated wholly owned subsidiary, will accept for payment in accordance with the terms of the Offer all shares that were validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to expiration of the offer (including all Shares delivered through notices of guaranteed delivery), and payment for such shares will be made promptly, in accordance with the terms of the offer.

Ascena expects to effect a merger of its wholly owned subsidiary with and into Charming without a vote or meeting of Charming’s shareholders in the coming days.

In the merger, each outstanding Charming share not tendered and purchased in the offer, if any (other than those as to which holders properly exercise dissenters rights, if any) will be converted into the right to receive the same $7.35 per share price, without interest and less any required withholding taxes, that was paid in the tender offer.

As a result of the merger, Charming will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Ascena.
