NOTE 22: SUBSEQUENT EVENT
On January 3, 2019, the Company acquired Costa in exchange for $4.9 billion of cash. Costa is a coffee company with retail outlets in over 30 countries, a coffee vending operation, for-home coffee formats and a state-of-the-art roastery. We believe this acquisition will allow us to increase our presence in the hot beverages market platform. We are currently in the process of finalizing the accounting for this transaction and expect to complete our preliminary allocation of the purchase consideration to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
The entire disclosure for significant events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date through the date the financial statements were issued or the date the financial statements were available to be issued. Examples include: the sale of a capital stock issue, purchase of a business, settlement of litigation, catastrophic loss, significant foreign exchange rate changes, loans to insiders or affiliates, and transactions not in the ordinary course of business.
