WestRock Stockholders approve combination with Smurfit Kappa

WestRock stockholders voted to approve the Transaction Agreement and other proposals related to the combination of Smurfit Kappa Group and WestRock at WestRock’s Special Meeting of Stockholders.

Pursuant to the terms of the Transaction Agreement entered into on September 12, 2023, Smurfit WestRock will acquire Smurfit Kappa by means of a scheme of arrangement under the Companies Act 2014 of Ireland (as amended) (the “Smurfit Kappa Share Exchange”), and Sun Merger Sub, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Smurfit WestRock, will merge with and into WestRock (the “Merger,” and together with the Smurfit Kappa Exchange, the Combination), with WestRock surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Smurfit WestRock.

If the Merger contemplated by the Transaction Agreement is completed, the common stockholders of WestRock will receive one new Smurfit WestRock share and $5.00 in cash for each share of common stock of WestRock. Completion of the Combination remains subject to certain conditions, as described in the Transaction Agreement.
