The merger deal of $24.6 billion was in total of the agreed $34.1 pay share of Albertsons by Kroger.

According to research, Kroger in 12 months rounding up in June 30th, made 9.9% of shares in the US while Albertsons got 5.7% shares.
The merge will likely give Kroger an advantage over Walmart but there could be possible risks worth consideration.
