In connection with the issuance of the May 2013 Senior Notes (as defined in Note 10), on May 14, 2013, the Company and Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company, as Trustee, escrow agent, and securities intermediary, entered into an agreement (the “Escrow Agreement”), pursuant to which an amount equal to 100% of the principal amount of the May 2013 Senior Notes (collectively, with any other property from time to time held by the escrow agent, the “Escrowed Property”) was placed into an escrow account to be released to the Company upon the closing of the Beer Business Acquisition (as defined in Note 19). The restricted cash consists of highly liquid investments with an original maturity when purchased of 30 days or less. Income from these investments is paid into the escrow account and is subject to the terms of the Escrow Agreement. As of May 31, 2013, the Company had $1,550.0 million of restricted cash – noncurrent on its Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company had no restricted cash as of February 28, 2013. In accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement, subsequent to May 31, 2013, in connection with the closing of the Beer Business Acquisition, the Escrowed Property was released to the Company and used to fund a portion of the purchase price for the Beer Business Acquisition.
