This Amendment No. 10 amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement and Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement filed under cover of Schedule TO on August 2, 2010, by Cerberus ABP Investor LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Purchaser”) and Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Cerberus”), to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), of BlueLinx Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), not owned by Purchaser at a purchase price of $4.00 per Share net to the seller in cash without interest and less any required withholding taxes, if any, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase dated August 2, 2010 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer to Purchase”) and related letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”) (which, together with any amendments or supplements thereto, collectively constitute the “Offer”). Capitalized terms used, but not otherwise defined, in this Amendment No. 10 shall have the meaning given in the Offer to Purchase, as amended and supplemented.




Section (a) of Item 4 is amended and supplemented as follows:


The Offer expired at midnight, New York City time, on Monday, October 18, 2010.  The depositary for the Offer has informed Purchaser and Cerberus that approximately 6,747,593 Shares (of which 350,000 were tendered by officers or directors of the Company) have been validly tendered and not withdrawn, which is sufficient to satisfy the Minimum Tender Condition.


The Offer was conditioned upon, among other things, the 90% Condition, which required that there be tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer a sufficient number of Shares such that, upon acceptance for payment and payment for the tendered shares, Purchaser will own a number of shares representing at least 90% of the outstanding Shares of the Company.  Purchaser and Cerberus believe that satisfaction of the 90% Condition required that 11,321,394 Shares be validly tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Offer.  The number of Shares validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the Expiration Date does not satisfy the 90% Condition.  As a result, under the terms of the Offer, Purchaser and Cerberus are not required to and will not accept for payment any tendered Shares, hereby terminate the Offer and Shares tendered in the Offer will be returned to stockholders who tendered in the Offer.


The full text of a press release issued by Purchaser announcing the results of the Offer is filed as Exhibit (a)(1)(xxv) and is incorporated herein by reference.
