FINANCIAL INFORMATION REQUESTS

On September 12, 2017, all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Staples, Inc. (the “Company” or “we”) were acquired pursuant to a merger transaction by investment funds managed by Sycamore Partners Management, L.P. for $10.25 per share. As a result, we are now privately owned and our common stock is no longer listed for trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.
