According to the filing, Ackman now has 41,922,908 shares in Burger King.
The maker of the “Whopper” returned as a publicly traded company on the NYSE Wednesday following a merger in April with Ackman’s “cash shell” company Justice Holdings.
Justice, which was founded along with Nicolas Bergguen (aka ‘the homeless billionaire’) and Martin Franklin last year before taking it public in February 2011 on the London Stock Exchange, purchased a 29% stake Burger King Worldwide Holdings Inc. for $1.4 billion in cash from 3G Capital.
Private equity firm 3G took Burger King private in 2010.
Shares of Burger King were last up more than 3.8%.
