The yearlong saga by Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU) to find a buyer came to an end on Dec. 14, when Canadian Pacific Railway (NYSE: CP) completed its deal to acquire Kansas City stock for $31 billion. Kansas City Southern shareholders received $90 in cash and 2.884 Canadian Pacific shares for each share they held.
