We believe Mr. Biglari and Mr. Cooley are wrong for Cracker Barrel’s Board and their election could jeopardize the powerful momentum we have built in the past year.
PROVEN DELIVERY OF SIGNIFICANT SHAREHOLDER VALUE IN 2012 THAT OUTPACED OUR COMPETITORS
Delivering value that benefits all our shareholders is our overriding focus. I am proud to have served as CEO during the past year, a time of significant achievements. To that end, we are pleased that the stock market has recognized our progress since the announcement of our six strategic priorities on September 13, 2011, with a 68.4% appreciation in the value of our shares through September 28, 2012. These gains are substantially higher than those of our peer group and the overall market, as shown in this chart:
12-Sep-2011 to 28-Sep-2012
Total Percentage Share Price Appreciation
|S&P 500 Restaurant Index||15.4|
|S&P 600 Restaurant Index||35.1|
|S&P 1500 Restaurant Index||17.8|
|S&P 500 Index||24.0|
We have also increased our quarterly dividend 100% over the last year and continued our share buyback program as we strive to find additional ways to deliver value on your investment.
