MARYVILLE, TN—Casual dining chain Ruby Tuesday, hit by four consecutive years of declining sales, said Monday it would be taken private by NRD Capital for $335 million, including the assumption of debt. The deal for $2.40 per common share represents a 21% premium on Ruby Tuesday’s closing price this past Friday and a 37% premium over its closing price on March 13, the day before the company said it would explore strategic alternatives. At its peak in 2004, the chain’s stock traded at about $33 per share.
