Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information described below under “Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant” is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

 

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On January 18, 2010, we entered into Amendment No. 1 to Acquisition and Refinancing Bridge Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”), among the lenders named therein and Citibank, N.A., as paying agent, to amend our Acquisition and Refinancing Bridge Credit Agreement dated as of November 9, 2009 (as amended, the “Agreement”), among the lenders named therein, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., as joint bookrunners, and Deutsche Bank AG Cayman Island Branch and Citibank, N.A., as co-administrative agents. The Agreement was amended to increase the term loan facility by £1.6 billion to an aggregate of £7.1 billion.

We expect to use the borrowings under the Agreement, or if available, proceeds from alternative financing sources, to finance the proposed acquisition of Cadbury plc and to refinance certain indebtedness of Cadbury plc and its subsidiaries. Borrowings under the Agreement are also available for general corporate purposes of Kraft Foods and our subsidiaries. Some of the lenders under the Agreement and their affiliates have various relationships with us and our subsidiaries involving the provision of financial services, including cash management, investment banking and trust services. In addition, we and certain of our subsidiaries have entered into foreign exchange and other derivative arrangements with certain of the lenders and their affiliates.

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On January 19, 2010, Kraft Foods Inc., a Virginia corporation, issued an announcement describing the detailed terms of a recommended final offer to acquire each outstanding ordinary share of Cadbury plc (the “Offer”).

Copies of the letter to shareholders and the Chairman and CEO’s message to employees are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.3 and 99.4.

On January 19, 2010, our independent registered accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”), delivered to us a currently dated and reissued report on our profit estimate regarding earnings per share. This report was prepared at our request to meet our obligations under The City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the “Takeover Code”) issued by The Panel on Takeovers and Mergers in connection with the Offer.

A copy of the Financial Advisors’ report is furnished as Exhibit 99.7 to this report.

On January 19, 2010, the Kraft Foods Board of Directors made a statement pursuant to Rule 28.5 of the Takeover Code regarding the discretionary cash flow guidance first announced on November 3, 2009 and PwC and the Financial Advisors each indicated that they have no objection to their respective reports in respect of that discretionary cash flow guidance (as set out in the document dated December 4, 2009 issued by us in connection with the Offer) continuing to apply.
