The card company American Greeting is no longer trading on the New York Stock Exchange after being taken private by the family that has run the company for more than a century.
The Weiss family said it would acquire the Cleveland company in April, along with a group of investors.
The deal, which closed Friday, values the company at about $580 million, or $878 million including assumed debt and the settlement of stock options.
Chief Operating Officer Jeff Weiss says the family is excited to return the company to its roots as a family-owned business.
