Analysis: Dollar Tree offer for Family Dollar may go unchallenged

Retail analysts think there is no other "logical" candidate that will come in to top Dollar Tree's (DLTR -0.2%) $74.50-per-share offer for Family Dollar (FDO +0.7%) after Dollar General and Wal-Mart have been scratched off the list.

Shares of Family Dollar still trade at a premium over the DLTR offer.

What to watch: Analysts note that the $300M in annual costs synergies forecast by 2018 from the merger is tied to supplier and distribution savings. Strategic store closings could take the tally higher.
