General Mills prices stock offering to fund Blue Buffalo takeover

General Mills Inc. priced its previously announced underwritten public offering of 22,727,273 shares of its common stock to partly fund its purchase of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc.

The Minneapolis-based packaged foods producer said the shares will be offered at $44 apiece, for a total purchase price of approximately $970 million, excluding the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses.

In addition to the equity offering, General Mills will also use the net proceeds from a senior unsecured notes offering, the incurrence of debt under its U.S. commercial paper program and cash on hand to finance the Blue Buffalo deal.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Bank of America Merrill Lynch are acting as joint book-running managers and representatives of the underwriters for the common stock offering, while Barclays Capital Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC are also acting as joint book-running managers.
