Hedge Fund Trian Partners to Hold Over 50 Million Fast Food Shares

West Palm Beach (HedgeCo.net) – Hedge fund Trian Partners said that they will buy about 49.4 million shares of fast-food operator Wendy’s/Arby’s Group for $4.15 per share, or about $205 million.
The hedge fund and their affiliates now own about 21.6% of Wendy’s/Arby’s, or 52.1 million shares, up from its previous 11.1% stake. In November, Trian Fund Management L.P., led by billionaire investor Nelson Peltz, Peter W. May and Edward P. Garden, said it would buy shares of the fast-food restaurant business for about $4.15 per share.

The deal was subject to certain conditions, including that there would not be a decline of more than 10% in the Dow Jones Industrial average or the S&P 500 index after Nov. 5. Another condition was that Wendy’s/Arby’s shares would not lose 10% of their value.

Triarc Cos. Inc., which operates Arby’s and was run by billionaire investor Nelson Peltz, bought Wendy’s in a deal that closed in September.
