RAPAPORT... Blue Nile did not receive any takeover bids during a 30-day period in which it was allowed to consider proposals from third parties, according to a company filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The disclosure comes after the online diamond retailer agreed to a $500 million acquisition by Bain Capital Private Equity and Bow Street last month. The terms of the deal permitted Blue Nile to solicit bids from other potential buyers during a ‘go-shop’ period.

With this period now over, Blue Nile is subject to “customary restrictions” on its ability to solicit alternative acquisition proposals, share information with potential bidders or engage in negotiations.
