ATD Corp., the parent company of American Tire Distributors Inc., filed a registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission relating to a proposed initial public offering of its common stock on Monday, June 16, 2014.

The number of shares to be offered by ATD and its shareholders, as well as other considerations such as the price range, stock ticker symbol and listing exchange, have not yet been determined. ATD expects to use the net proceeds it receives from the offering primarily to repay a portion of its existing long-term debt.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch (Bank of America Corp.), Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are acting as joint book-running managers and as representatives of the underwriters for the offering. In addition, Barclays Plc, JP Morgan Chase & Co. and UBS Investment Bank are joint book-running managers for the offering.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC, but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.

The offering will be made only by means of a prospectus. Copies of the preliminary prospectus related to the offering may be obtained, when available, from any of the three companies representing the underwriters.
