LAVAL, Quebec, and SAN ANTONIO — Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. has announced a definitive merger agreement with CST Brands Inc. under which Couche-Tard would acquire CST in an all-cash transaction for $48.53 per share, with a total enterprise value of approximately $4.4 billion (U.S.) including net debt assumed.
