Berkshire will collect $720 Million per year in Preferred Dividends funded by Heinz Cash Flows. Heinz. Yup, THAT Heinz thats been making money since the 1860s.
In return for investing $4 or $4.5 Billion in Equity??
How does he pull this off..seriously..we are not in a crisis..there is major private equity competition to do these deals...we're in a tranquil post election environment.
Given the TIME, the ENVIRONMENT (market 5 year highs, major PE competition, the 5% Junk Bond Yield Environment)...I challenge you to name a better investment as determined in real time immediately than Buffett has made than THIS.
Exactly what he said!!
