Burger King 'Acquired'

Burger King Holdings, Inc. and 3G Capital have announced that "they have entered into a definitive agreement under which affiliates of 3G Capital will acquire the stock of the Company for USD24.00 per share, or USD4.0 billion, including the assumption of the Company's outstanding debt."

I'd have loved to have sat in on that meeting and as everyone was shaking hands at the end piped up with "would you like to go large with that?" as I thrust a 3 inch plastic Shrek into the hands of the 3G Capital CEO.

And before you think of any litigation issues 3G, I think you will find that you still owe me for that Whopper meal that never materialised in Newton Abbot circa 2001. Yes, I don't suppose BK mentioned that sorry incident did they?
