Section 4: Cost base of your Viterra CDIs

In this section, you work out the cost base of your new Viterra CDIs. If you chose the maximum cash option, skip this section and section 3.

If you elected to receive Viterra shares not Viterra CDIs, complete section 3 then skip this section.

Column 11: Acquisition date

The acquisition date for your Viterra CDIs is 23 September 2009, the implementation date of the acquisition. We have filled in this column for you.

Column 12: Number of Viterra CDIs received

Check the holding statement you received from Viterra and enter the total number of CDIs you received in the total box at the bottom of column 12.

Use the following table to work out the number of Viterra CDI you received for each parcel of ABB Grain shares:


Number of Viterra CDIs


Column 3 (number of ABB Grain shares) x 0.4531

Maximum cash


Maximum scrip

56.33% of column 3 (56.33% of number of ABB Grain shares) x 0.9062


Remember, even though you chose maximum scrip, you received Viterra CDI for only 56.33% of your ABB Grain shares because of the scale back.

End of attention

Round each answer to a full number and enter the results in column 12.

Add up the figures in column 12 and compare your answer to the number of CDIs you entered in the total box (from your holding statement). If the figures do not match, adjust the rounding of individual parcels to make them add up to the number on your holding statement.


Column 12 must match the total on the holding statement you received from Viterra. Any adjustment you make to your individual parcels must be done on a reasonable basis.

Column 13: Cost base of Viterra CDIs received

The cost base of your Viterra CDIs is the market value of those CDIs when you received them, which was $10.70. Work out the cost base for each of your parcels of Viterra CDIs:

column 12 (number of CDIs received) x $10.70

Enter the results into column 13.
