Billionaire Nelson Peltz bought a 5.5% stake in Wendy's International Inc. and urged the company to cut costs and sell assets, saying a management plan to boost the stock price doesn't go far enough. Wendy's should cut $200 million in costs and sell its Baja Fresh, Cafi Express and Pasta Pomodoro brands, Peltz said in a regulatory filing.

Nelson Peltz's Triarc Cos. made an offer for Wendy's International Inc. that was less than the $3.2 billion the investor said he might pay in July. Peltz's bid makes it unlikely that Wendy's will accept his offer, analysts and investors said. The billionaire, who has pressured Wendy's management to boost its stock price since buying a stake in 2005, made the offer after the third-largest U.S. hamburger chain said a possible sale was being delayed by turmoil in credit markets last month.
