Jana Partners' Barry Rosenstein on Wednesday reported that his activist fund had liquidated its position in Whole Foods at a major profit, in a move that completes an activist campaign that propelled the organic grocer to sell itself to Amazon.com Inc. ( (AMZN) ) in an industry transforming $13.7 billion deal.

The sale marked a major victory for Jana Partners, which in April launched a campaign to have Whole Foods consider selling itself.

But it also generated a windfall, net of fees, which Rosenstein will likely invest partly into another insurgency campaign in the coming months.

According to a Jana Partners securities filing, the fund sold its 9% stake between June 19 and July 18 at prices ranging from $41.66 and $43.51. That's significantly more than the $29.14 a share to $31.80 a share Jana Partners had originally accumulated its stake at between Feb. 9 and April 10. The Deal estimates that Jana Partners is expected to receive as much as $320 million from its six-month-old Whole Foods investment. A Jana Partners official declined to comment. 

A lot of those share sales took place at prices higher than the $42 a share transaction price, which suggests that Jana Partners may not believe that another company will come in and out bid Amazon.

Jana Partners has a number of existing investments it could allocate some of its Whole Foods profits towards. It recently bought a $4 million stake in Laureate Education Inc. ( (LAUR) ) and a less-than-1% stake in retirement services company Athene Holding Ltd. ( (ATH) ). It also accumulated a 0.2% position in Shire PLC ( (SHPG) ) for about $99 million and a 0.6% stake in Resolute Energy Corp. ( (REN) ) and a 1.2% stake in WebMD Health Corp. ( (WBMD) ) for $25 million.
