Cracker Barrel agrees to special shareholder meeting

Cracker Barrel (CBRL) takes some shots at Sardar Biglari and his quest to call a special meeting of shareholders.

Though the company has agreed to set the meeting after conceding the activist investor will gain the 20% threshold required, it notes rather caustically that Biglari has failed three times in his bid to land a board seat and continues to be a distraction.

"It is hard to avoid the conclusion that Mr. Biglari is now just engaged in harassment of the Company."

The special meeting will occur on April 23.

    Cracker Barrel has a good product but lacks the management skill to increase company value. Biglari is skilled and needs to be on the board.

    I agree but its not happening.


    At this point, its just about if he can get 30.02% more to vote for pursuing a deal of some kind.


    If he gets the votes, the board doesnt have to act...certainly not anytime soon.


    I think he just wants to continue agitating them so they buy him out. But, if they didnt think a $20 dividend was prudent, its hard to argue buying his state out would be.
