On 29 March 2010 the Offer for the issued shares in Cadbury plc by Kraft Foods Inc became compulsory and all Cadbury Shares were acquired under the terms of the Offer.
In consideration of the Cadbury Shares, shareholders were entitled to receive 500 pence and 0.1874 Kraft Foods Shares ("KFI") for every Cadbury Share previously held (total Offer price of £8.40 per Cadbury Share held).
1 October 2012 KFI completed a demerger of its North American grocery business and the name of KFI was changed to Mondeléz International, Inc. ("Mondeléz International"). Under the terms of the demerger, holders continued to hold the same number of Mondeléz International shares and in addition, received one share in its wholly owned subsidiary company, Kraft Foods Group, Inc. ("KFG") for every three shares held on the effective date of the demerger. H.J. Heinz Holding Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Heinz, merged with and into KFG, effective as of 2 July 2015 to become The Kraft Heinz Company ("KHC"). Under the terms of the merger, holders exchanged each KFG share for one share of KHC common stock and a $16.50 per share special dividend declared by KFG.
Cadbury plc has appointed Georgeson to help find and reunite individuals with their entitlements under the Offer. If you have received a letter from Georgeson and Cadbury plc, it is because you could be entitled to shares or cash that you may not be aware of.
As any new entitlement to Mondeléz International shares will be traded on the New York Stock Exchange, Cadbury has also appointed Georgeson to facilitate the sale of these shares, should an individual wish to sell their holding and be resident in one of the Permitted Territories for this service.
As any new entitlement to KHG shares will be maintained by Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. Georgeson are unable to trade these shares on your behalf. You will be contacted separately about these shares once your claim has been processed.
There's more information about claiming your shares, your cash and your options on the back of the letter you received.
Please note, to sell your shares, you need to be resident in one of the Permitted Territories in which this programme is offered. If resident outside of one of the Permitted Territories, you will be able to claim the cash due to you but Georgeson will not be able to trade your shares.
