Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We assume the business had no EBITDA and POST paid about $100 million with $25 mm of integration costs of TSAs and other, offset to a degree by the NPV of tax savings on the asset step-up. POST said it could generate EBITDA margins similar to its own PL RTE business – we think 15%-18%.
