Liberty Tax, which owns tax-return preparation business Liberty Tax Services and branched into capital investing in July, agrees to pay $6.50 per Vitamin Shoppe share, a 43% premium on its closing price a day earlier. Vitamin Shoppe's earnings struggles continued in Q2 as total sales fell 7.6% to $270.9m and it reported a $3.6m net loss after generating $5.3m net income a year ago.
