Stocks in this article: PNCL

Planned initiatives include seeking modifications to the company's agreements with its mainline airline partners, equipment lessors, debt holders, real property lessors and vendors. The company will also seek to work with its pilots and other employees (both union and non-union) to reduce labor costs. As part of its efforts, the company will examine and further rationalize its business lines, organizational structure and executive and director level functions.

Pinnacle Airlines Corp. has engaged the services of Seabury Group LLC's consulting division, Barclays Capital, and the law firm of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP to assist with these efforts.

"Pinnacle Airlines Corp. is facing a convergence of events that, if left unaddressed, will make 2012 an extremely challenging year," said Sean Menke, the company's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have a great deal of hard work ahead of us, but these efforts are necessary to ensure we can operate as a profitable business for our shareholders, mainline flying partners, employees and other stakeholders."
