Last month, the struggling women’s clothing chain agreed to be taken private by New York-based Sycamore Partners for about $193.3 million in cash. Talbots’ stockholders will receive $2.75 per share.

Talbots runs 516 stores in 46 states and Canada.

Its stock shed 2 cents to $2.43 in premarket trading on Wednesday.
