Will a shareholder of bks get any stock in the new company?

Also, just so I understand this better does this mean that bks will be a completelely separate legal entity in whihc bks just happens to own 80% of the stock? In other words on bks income statements once this transaction is completed one will not see any revenue or expense numbers? Isn't there some limit to the amount of a company another company can own without having to report it's number as a subsidiary in consolidated statements?
