Chicago hedge fund giant Citadel Advisors is one of the top shareholders of Hillshire Brands.

Chicago Tribune reported that Citadel recently bought an approximate 5% stake in the branded foods company, just days after Hillshire announced plans to buy food maker Pinnacle Foods for about $4.3 billion in cash and stock.

Citadel recently made headlines when its $830 million high-frequency trading fund helped the firm return more than 300% since its inception in 2007, beating the 44% gain of the U.S. stock market in the six years through 2013.
