Burger King Worldwide Inc. confirmed it has agreed to buy Canadian coffee and doughnut chain Tim Hortons Inc. The companies said on Tuesday, in a cash and stock deal to create the world`s third-largest fast food restaurant group, with sales of about $23 billion.
Investors and tax experts say the main reason for Burger King to move its domicile to Canada is to avoid having to pay double taxation on profits earned abroad, as the company would have to do if it remained in the United States. Burger King’s shares jumped nearly 20% since the reports.
