US businessman Warren Buffett has crossed the $100 billion threshold.
Forbes magazine reported that the share price of Buffet’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, reached a record level Wednesday, pushing his fortune to $100.3 billion.
It would be the first time the billionaire’s net worth crossed the $100 billion threshold.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is in sixth place, with an estimated fortune of $96.7 billion.
