This deal is too much in favor of Berkshire while 3G does all the real work. I wonder why Lemann accepted it on these terms at all, I wouldn't have

In addition to benefitting from appreciation of their equity, I've assumed that 3G will draw management advisory fees for their "active role" in optimizing the business. But I cannot verify that this is the case.
