CP and KCS merger proposal receives US clearance

CP and KCS merger proposal receives US clearance

(Posted on 03/09/22)

Canadian Pacific Railway Limited has announced that it has received the required regulatory clearance from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States ("CFIUS") for the proposed combination of CP and Kansas City Southern ("KCS").

CP is a transcontinental railway in Canada and the United States with direct links to major ports on the west and east coasts. KCS is just one interchange away from every major market in North America.

CP completed its acquisition of KCS on 14 December, 2021. Immediately upon the closing of the acquisition, the shares of KCS were placed into a voting trust which ensures KCS will operate independently of CP while the U.S. Surface Transportation Board ("STB") completes its regulatory review of the companies' joint railroad control application to create Canadian Pacific Kansas City ("CPKC"), the only single-line railroad linking the United States, Mexico and Canada.

The STB review of CP's proposed control of KCS is expected to be completed in early 2023.

CP provides North American customers a competitive rail service with access to key markets in every corner of the globe. CP is growing with its customers, offering a suite of freight transportation services, logistics solutions and supply chain expertise.
