Post expects to incur $27 million to $30 million in employee severance, retention and relocation payments as part of the relocation. The company says consolidating its Post and MOM Brands cereal business it is buying will save about $50 million.

The company plans to close an office in Parsippany, New Jersey, within a year.

Post cereal brands include Honey Bunches of Oats and Grape Nuts. MOM Brands makes ready-to-eat cereals and hot wheat and oatmeal products.
