Ralcorp’s Vail stock now up for grabs

Alex Miller

VAIL ” Ralcorp Holdings, Inc., which owns 7.55 million shares of Vail Resorts stock, now has the ability to sell that stock on the open market.

Vail Resorts stock closed at a record high Monday of $33.45.

According to an amended shareholder agreement filed last week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Ralcorp Holdings no longer needs to give Vail Resorts first right of refusal ” or ability to buy ” the stock if it wants to sell it.

Ralcorp, which sold its interests in Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin to Vail Resorts in 1997, holds about 20 percent of Vail Resorts’ stock, worth nearly $250 million. (The U.S. Department of Justice later required Vail Resorts to sell Arapahoe Basin.)

Ralcorp chief executive Joe Micheletto and board chairman William Stiritz sit on Vail Resorts’ board of directors. Vail Resorts and Ralcorp declined to comment on the filing.
