The ketchup company said Heinz shareholders will receive $72.50 in cash for each share of common stock they own. The deal value includes the assumption of Heinz's debt. Based on Heinz's number of shares outstanding, the deal is worth $23.3 billion excluding debt.

The per share price represents a 20 percent premium to Heinz's closing price of $60.48 on Wednesday.

Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital say Heinz will remain headquartered in Pittsburgh.
