Dollar General Corp reported a 7.8 percent rise in quarterly sales and said it remained committed to buying Family Dollar Stores Inc , which has already agreed to be acquired by Dollar Tree Inc .

Dollar Tree will unseat Dollar General as the No. 1 U.S. deep-discount retailer if it closes the deal with Family Dollar.

Dollar General’s net income slipped to $236.3 million, in the third-quarter ended Oct. 31 from $237.4 million a year earlier. [ID:nBw4q6Dbra]

Earnings per share, however, rose to 78 cents from 74 cents a year earlier due to fewer outstanding shares.

Revenue rose to $4.72 billion from $4.38 billion.
