Merger[edit] The merger was agreed by the boards of both companies, with approval by shareholders (at the shareholders meeting) and regulatory authorities.[3][6] The new company became the world's fifth-largest food and beverage company[7] and the third-largest in the United States.[3] The company is headquartered in both Pittsburgh
and Chicago.[8] The companies completed the merger on July 2, 2015.[1] Under the merger, Kraft's shareholders received 49% of shares in the combined company, plus a one-time dividend of US$16.50 per share.[9] Fortune reported that sluggish growth for Kraft in the US market is due to consumers turning to natural and organic ingredients.[10] Alex Behring, 3G Capital's managing partner, is the chairman of the new company; Bernardo Hees, also a partner of 3G Capital
3G Capital
and Heinz's chief executive officer (CEO), is the CEO of the new company; and John Cahill, Kraft's CEO, is the vice chairman of the new company.[10] The merger did not affect the naming rights to Heinz
Field, home of the Pittsburgh
Steelers.[11] On February 17, 2017, it was reported that Kraft Heinz
Co. had made a $143 billion approach to take over the British-Dutch multinational Unilever, a significantly larger competitor with 126,000 more employees and £24bn larger revenue than Kraft Heinz.[12] Unilever declined the initial proposal.[13] The takeover was subsequently abandoned on 19 February soon after UK Prime Minister Theresa May
Theresa May
had ordered a scrutiny of the deal.[12] See also[edit]
