(CAG) today announced the pricing of an underwritten offering of 16,312,057 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $35.25 per share.

The food products company, which has agreed to be acquired by Conagra Brands Inc. , said it expects third-quarter adjusted earnings per share of 77 cents to 79 cents, above the FactSet consensus of 68 cents, boosted by its productivity and cost-cutting programs. Sales for the quarter are expected to slip to $740 million to $745 million from $749.8 million a year ago, below the FactSet consensus of $763 million, citing "intensified competition" in the grocery segment, which was partially offset by strength in its Birds Eye frozen foods business.

Based on Monday's stock closing prices, the offering would represent about 16.6 million shares, or about 4.2% of the shares outstanding. Conagra plans to use the proceeds from the offering to help fund its pending acquisition of Pinnacle Foods. Conagra's stock fell 1.5% in premarket trade, while Pinnacle shares were still inactive.
