Substantial sales of our common stock following the distribution may have an adverse impact on the trading price of our common stock.
Some of the Sara Lees stockholders who receive our shares of common stock may decide that their investment objectives do not include ownership of our shares, and may sell their shares of common stock following the distribution. In particular, certain Sara Lee stockholders that are institutional investors have investment parameters that depend on their portfolio companies maintaining a minimum market capitalization that we may not achieve after the distribution. Also, many employees of Sara Lee may be unwilling to continue to hold our common stock in their 401(k) or other retirement accounts because such employees will not be employed by us. For example, participants in the Sara Lee 401(k) Plan who fail to make an affirmative election to retain the shares of Hanesbrands common stock that they receive on the distribution date will have their entire holding of Hanesbrands common stock in their Sara Lee 401(k) Plan account liquidated shortly after the distribution date. In addition, participants in the Sara Lee 401(k) Plan who affirmatively elect to retain the shares of Hanesbrands common stock that they receive in their Sara Lee 401(k) Plan account will be required to liquidate those shares within one year after the distribution date. We cannot predict whether other stockholders will resell large numbers of our shares of common stock in the public market following the distribution or how quickly they may resell these shares. If our stockholders sell large numbers of our shares of common stock over a short period of time, or if investors anticipate large sales of our shares of common stock over a short period of time, this could adversely affect the trading price of our shares of common stock.
