Berkshire invests in USG Corporation

A January 2014 regulatory filing showed that Buffett's holding company Berkshire Hathaway acquired more shares in USG Corporation by exchanging US$243.8M of convertible notes it held in the Chicago-based company. This has now made Berkshire Hathaway the largest single shareholder in USG.

USG Corporation, formerly known as United States Gypsum Company, is the largest producer of gypsum plasterboard in North America, and the producer of several other homebuilding products.
