Gill had disappeared from the public view for three years. After inciting a GameStop stock rally that was the basis for a Hollywood film, he took a step back before resurfacing in May. The Chewy stocks appears to be Gill’s first attempt to branch away from the video game retailer.

According to reports, the Chewy stock rallied as much as 34% after the filing was made public. Yet again, Gill’s influence is undeniable. Subsequently, his ownership in Chewy is valued at $245 million. The company’s value was up 20% after the closing bell.
