(AP) Warren Buffett's company reported a 29 percent jump in third-quarter profit as it collected some of the proceeds from deals made during the financial crisis.


Berkshire Hathaway earned $5.05 billion, or $3,074 per Class A share, during the quarter. That's up from $3.92 billion, or $2,373 per Class A share, in the same period last year.


The biggest factor in the results was a $1.2 billion investment gain Berkshire recorded as it prepared to redeem warrants in General Electric and Goldman Sachs. Mars and Wrigley also repaid Berkshire for a crisis-era investment.


Berkshire's revenue grew 13 percent to $46.5 billion.


The three analysts surveyed by FactSet expected Berkshire to report operating earnings per Class A share of $2,424.26. Berkshire reported $2,228 operating earnings per A share, which excludes investment gains.
