Analyst Note

| Matthew Young, CFA |

As we highlighted in late August, the Surface Transportation Board rejected Canadian National’s proposed independent voting trust, which was to be the first step in a CN-Kansas City Southern tie-up. As a result, KCS has re-engaged Canadian Pacific’s still-valid offer to purchase KCS at around $300 per share, likely because a CP deal has a much greater chance of STB approval--CP has less network overlap with KCS, and CP's proposed voting trust already has STB approval. On Sept. 12, KCS’ board deemed CP’s proposal to be “superior” and is poised to accept it after a five-day period (end of day Sept. 15), during which CN has the opportunity to respond with a better offer.
