To Stockholders (Common and Preferred) of the
UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY and
Stockholders of the
SOUTHERN PACIFIC COMPANY:
With the approval of the Attorney-General of the United States, the Union Pacific Railrrad
Company has adopted a plan, which has also been assented to by the Southern Pacific Company m to
far as action on its part is required, for complying with the terms of the decree fo be entered in th
Internment suit in accordance with the recent decision of the United States Supreme Court, which
plan includes the following. The Southern Pacific Company has agreed to sell to the union I acific
Kailroad Company the entire capital stock of the Cenlral Pacific Company, and to cancel or acsic tb
existing lease of the railroad and other property of the Central Pacihc Company, thus transferring to
the Union Pacific Railroad Company the beneficial ownership of the railroad, and other property of the
Central Pacific Company, subject to certain leases, reciprocal contracts for the Joint use of railroads
and terminals, and other arrangements intended for the mutual protection of the two companies. It
had been expected that the Union Pacific Railroad Company would pay for the Central, i acilic property
uy s-urrenoermg or 1
held by the Oregon
..,1... r ,1,. i;nr i,
owned by the Union Pacific Railroad Company, and bv the payment of $14,0b?,44l 111 cash. Hut there bemK
doubt as to the right of the Southern Pacific Company to acquire its own stork, it has been decided to
sell the Oregon Short Line Railroad I ompany's entire holdings of stock in the Southern 1 acific lorn-
I that the net nrocrcds of the ale of
$84,675,500, par value, of said slock, shall be paid to the Southern Pacific Company in lieu of such ron
templated surrender lo it of said amnutit of stock. Accordingly the privilege is offered to stockholders,
registered on the books of the Union Pacific Railroad Company and the Southern Pacific Company
(excluding, however, the Oregon Short Line Railroad Company and its nominees), respectively, at the
close of business on February 28, 1913, to subscribe on or before March 21, 1913, for such stock of the
Southern Pacific Company in the proportion of one share of Southern Pacific stock for each tout shares
of Union Pacific stock, preferred or common, and of one share of Southern Pacific stock for each three
hares of Southern Pacific stock held by others than the Oregon Short Line Railroad Company and Us
The price of iubscription it $100 for each share of $100 par value (equivalent as
of the date of subscription to 98.67 and accrued dividend) payable either ui full on
March 21, 1913, or in four instalments of $25 each on March 21, July 1 and October 1,
1913, and January 2, 1914. . , L . ,
A check for the dividend payable on April 1, 1913, will be mailed by the Depositary hereinafter
mentioned, as and when received by it, to registered subscribers, having paid either in full or the first
instalment. Interest will be charged from March JI, I'M, on deferred payments at the accruing rate of
dividends. Dividends pa able after April 1, 1913, when received by the Depositary will be so far as
needed applied in payment of such interest and a check for the balance will upon payment of the
instalments be ma.lc'd to holders of part-paid receipts. Holders of part-paid receipt may anticipate
payment at anv time by paving interest as above stated to the date of full payment. L ntil and except
to the extent that Mock is paid for in full bv the subscribers and certilicales therefor delivered to them,
the shares subscribed for are to be transferred of record to the National City Hank of New "i ork, as
Depositary, or its nominie, which is to vote the same in accordance with the written directions of the
registered subscription receipt-holders and hold the same for them as owners, but subject to the pay
ment of the unpaid portion of the subscription price. ,
Warrants signed by the Treasurer or an Assistant Treasurer of the Union Pacific Railroad Com
pany will be issued to each stockholder (the Southern Pacific Company to furnish the Union Pacihc
Railroad Company a list of its stockholders for the purpose) as soon as possible after the closing of
the books on February 2S, 1013, specifying the amount of stock for which the stockholder is entitled to
subscribe. Warrants will be mailed to stockholders at addresses to which their dividends are sent
If dividends arc collected by bankers or others on powers of attorney, or other authority,
warrants will be sent to such authorized parties, unless other instructions are received. War
rants not so provided for may be obtained at this office not later than March 8, 1013
"Subscription Warrants" entitling the holder to subscribe will be issued for amounts of $100, or mul
tiples thereof, and "Fractional Warrants" for fractions of $100. "Fractional Warrants' will not entitle
the holder to subscribe, but will be exchangeable in amounts aggregating at least $100 on or before
March 18, 1913, for "Subscription Warrants." and if the surrendered "Fractional Warrants' include a
fraction in excess of $100 a new "Fractional Warrant" will be issued for such fraction. "Fractional
Warrants" desired by stockholders to complete full shares or "Fractionsl Warrants" which the stock
holders desire to dispose of must be bought or sold in the market, as the Company will not sell or pur
chase such fractions. After March 18, 1913, all "Fractional Warrants" will be void and of no effect.
On the back of the warrants will be two torms. In case it is desired to subscribe, the first form is to
be filled out and fgned by the stockholders or by their assignees, but in case it is desired to dispose of
the subscription privilege, the second form, which is an assignment, is to be tilled out and signed by
the stockholders. here a warrant authorizes a subscription to two or more shares,, stockholders who
may wish to subscribe for a portion of the shares covered by the warrant and dispose of the balance,
or who may wish to dispose of a portion of the shares covered by the warrant to one person and the
balance to another should return the warrants to this office on or before March 18, 1913, to be ex
changed for other warrants, specifying in writing the number of warrants desired in exchange and the
number of shares to be covered by each. In no cac. however, on such exchange will a fractional warrant
be issued The subscription warrants must be surrendered at the office of the National City Bank of New
York, or at the office of Baring Brothers & Co., Ltd.. 8 Bishopsgate Within, London, E. C, England,
by the stockholders or by the persons to whom assignrd, on or before M3rch 21, 1913, accompanied by
the payment of the first instalment or the full amount payable, and all warrants not to surrendered with
such payment on or before said date shall be void and of no value. Failure to pay any instalment when
and as payable will operate as a forfeiture of all rights in respect of the subscription and the instal
ments previously paid. Said Hank, directly or through said Haring Brothers & Co., Ltd., as its agents
in London, will, on surrender of the warrants and on payment of the first instalment, or full payment,
as the case may be, issue receipts which shall be transferable by assignment, and which must, unless pre
viously paid in full, be returned on or before July 1, and on or before October 1, 1913, and on or before
January 2, 114, accompanied by the payment ot the second, third and final instalments, respectively,
or, at the option of the holder, accompanied by the payment of the full amount remaining payable, for
endorsement thereon, as the case may be, of the payment of the said instalments or full payment. Cer
tificates of stock registered in the name of or as directed by receipt-holders will be delivered in exchange
for full-paid receipts. No subscription or assignment of this privilege will be recognized unless made
on the forms approved by the Union Pacific Uailrond Company. No holder of the stock of either the
Union Pacifc Kailroad Company or the Southern Pacific Company shall be entitled to any of the aboTe
mentioned shares unless the terms of subscription herein specified arc fully complied with. The sub
scription and respective instalment payments must be made at the dates 'and in accordance with the
provisions stated above. Checks or drafts in payment of subscriptions must be drawn in favor of the
National City Batik of New York in New York funds or in favor of Baring Brothers & Co., Ltd., in
London funds, as the case may be, and for the exact amounts covering the respective instalments.
The plan and the agreements embodying the same will not become effective unless and until ap
proved by the District Court of the United States for the District of Utah in the suit of the United
States of America vs. Union Pacific Railroad Company ft ah, now pending therein, upon the mandate
cf the Supreme Court of the United States, nor unless and until the Railroad Commission of the State
of California shall approve the provisions of raid plan in respect of which in the opinion of the
Company's counsel the approval of said Commission may be necessary or advisable to give the same
Ly order of the Board of Directors.
