ConAgra Foods (Symbol CAG) announced that the acquisition of Ralcorp was completed on January 29, 2013.
The Ralcorp (formerly Ralston) shareholders received $90 per share.
Since this was a cash sale, this will be a 2013 capital gain or loss that should be reported on the 2013 Form 8949. To determine your gain or loss, subtract the cost basis from the sales proceeds. If you receive a tax Form 1099-B for this, make sure the cost basis is not zero!
Many investors acquired Ralcorp from the Kraft August 4, 2008 spinoff.
You can use the Altria-Kraft-Philip Morris Basis Calculator to determine the cost basis.
