Where can I find cost basis information relating to the common stock of Kraft Foods Group, Inc. prior to the merger with Heinz?

On October 1, 2012, Mondelēz International, Inc. (“Mondelēz”) (then known as Kraft Foods Inc.) completed the spin-off of Kraft through a pro rata dividend of all outstanding shares of Kraft common stock to Mondelēz shareholders. On the date of this dividend, each Mondelēz shareholder received one share of Kraft common stock for every three shares of Mondelēz common stock owned on the record date for the spin-off dividend. As a result, an investor’s cost basis in Kraft common stock prior to the merger with Heinz is dependent on whether that investor acquired Kraft common stock in the spin-off. For shareholders who acquired their Kraft common stock as a result of Kraft's spin-off from Mondelēz, please click this link for cost basis information. For shareholders who acquired their Kraft common stock for cash after the spin-off from Mondelēz, their cost basis is generally the price paid for Kraft common stock. The cost basis for all shareholders may be affected by the merger of Kraft and Heinz.

Where can I find information about the tax consequences of Canadian shareholders related to the merger of Kraft and Heinz?

Please see the statements below for guidance regarding the tax consequences for Canadian shareholders as a result of the Kraft Heinz merger:

Special $16.50 dividend (Canadian shareholders)

For Canadian shareholders of the former Kraft Foods Group, Inc. (ticker: KRFT), the special cash dividend of $16.50 USD per share received as part of the merger to create The Kraft Heinz Company will be taxable in the same manner as any dividend received from a foreign corporation.

Kraft Heinz shares – Cost Basis (Canadian Shareholders)

Since the merger should qualify as a foreign merger as defined in subsections 87(8.1) and (8.2) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "ITA”), it should qualify for tax-deferred treatment under ITA. The adjusted cost base of your Kraft Heinz shares will generally be the cost you incurred to acquire your Kraft Foods Group Inc. shares, thus preserving your total adjusted cost base. This tax deferral is automatic; however, a taxpayer may “opt out” by making an election in the taxpayer’s income tax return for the 2015 year to not have a tax deferral. Canadian shareholders are urged to contact their own tax advisors for advice regarding the consequences of the merger transaction and its impact to their individual circumstances.
