“As one of the company’s largest shareholders, with a current beneficial ownership of more than 46 million shares, Trian has long seen enormous opportunities in the company’s portfolio of strong global brands,” says Nelson Peltz. “Irene Rosenfeld is a CEO who has created substantial value for shareholders over the course of her career. I look forward to working closely and constructively with Irene, the board and management team toward our shared goals of driving growth, improving margins and increasing value for all shareholders.”
