3/13/2019 UPDATE – Nutrisystem, Inc. (NTRI)

  by Robert Brauer

Attention, those of you who own Nutrisystem, Inc. (NTRI):  NTRI has been acquired by Tivity Health, Inc. (TVTY). The acquisition includes a payment of $38.75 and 0.2141 shares of TVTY for every outstanding share of NTRI. Because of this acquisition, you should sell your shares of TVTY on Trade Day, and Transmogrify if necessary. 

On Trade Day, you will need to take the following steps:

1) Sell all of your outstanding shares of TVTY. You will then combine the proceeds from the sale of these shares with the cash payment you also received for your NTRI shares.

2) Take the total from the previous step, and divide it by the total number of shares you previously owned of NTRI. This will help you to determine the price that NTRI was effectively sold for.

3) If the price you calculated in step #2 is lower than your average cost for NTRI, you will proceed with the transmogrification, and use the price from step #2 as your Price of Old Stock for your transmogrification search. If the price calculated in step #2 is above your average cost for NTRI, there is no need to transmogrify.

We’re here to help! Here is a link to the Transmogrification document that will tell you step-by-step what to do.

SPECIAL NOTE: Lattco PRO and Lattco AutoPilot accounts will likely display an analyzer error after downloading the activity for the removal of NTRI. If this is the case, please contact us, and we will correct the error and close out the NTRI position.
