CN (CNI) announced that it has made a "superior proposal" to combine with Kansas City Southern (KSU) in a cash-and-stock transaction valued at $33.7B, or $325 per share. Under the terms of the proposal made to KCS' Board of Directors, following closing into a voting trust, KCS shareholders will receive $200 in cash and 1.059 shares of CN common stock for each KCS common share. Based on yesterday's closing price of CN shares, CN's proposal is valued at $325 per KCS share. This represents an implied premium of 45% when compared to KCS' unaffected closing stock price on March 19, 2021 and an 21% improvement over the current value of KCS' agreement with Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (CP) With greater than two-times more cash consideration, CN's superior proposal delivers greater value and certainty to KCS shareholders, as well as participation in the significant upside of the combined company. CN currently estimates that the combination would result in EBITDA synergies approaching $1B annually, with the vast majority of synergies coming from additional revenue opportunities. CN anticipates the transaction to be accretive to CN's adjusted diluted earnings per share2 in the first full year following CN assuming control of KCS. "CN is ideally positioned to combine with KCS to create a company with broader reach and greater scale, and to seamlessly connect more customers to rail hubs and ports in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. CN and KCS have highly complementary networks with limited overlap that will enable them to accelerate growth in single-owner, single-operator, end-to-end service across North America. With safer service and better fuel efficiency on key routes from Mexico through the heartland of America, the result will be a safer, faster, cleaner and stronger railway," said JJ Ruest, president and CEO of CN.
