The $20 per share purchase price is an 82 per cent premium to LaCrosse’s Thursday closing stock price.

The company saw its stock skyrocket by more than 81 per cent to hit $19.88 on the Nasdaq.

Founded in 1897, LaCrosse makes mutli-season leather and rubber boots, hunting boots and fire boots.

LaCrosse’s board and some senior management – which collectively hold eight per cent of the footwear company’s stock – have already agreed to tender their shares to the deal.

After the deal’s completion, LaCrosse will become a unit of ABC-Mart and will continue to operate in Portland, Oregon.

The transaction, which is still subject to customary closing conditions, is slated to close by the third quarter 2012.
