With two weeks to go before its shareholders consider its proposed sale to Signet Jewelers Ltd., Zale Corp. Thursday shot back at a shareholder opposing its acquisition by Signet, saying the $1.4 billion takeover “provides compelling and immediate value” to its stockholders.
TIG Advisors LLC, which owns 9.5 percent of Zale’s outstanding stock, on Monday came out against the $21-a-share cash transaction and called it “grossly unfair” based on Zale’s projected growth trajectory. TIG said it would vote its shares against the deal at a special meeting of Zale shareholders to consider the proposed merger on May 29 and urged fellow shareholders to do the same or abstain from voting.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
