Procter & Gamble has set the final exchange ratio of 3.9033 shares of common stock of Galleria Co. for each share of P&G common stock accepted in the exchange offer related to the sale of its global fine fragrance, salon professional, cosmetics and retail hair color businesses to Coty.
As previously reported, this "tax-efficient" Reverse Morris Trust transaction "provides P&G shareholders with the opportunity to exchange their shares of P&G common stock for shares of Galleria Co. common stock, which will convert into shares of Coty class A common stock upon completion of the merger."
