Mr. Bradford’s extensive business and academic experience is beyond reproach, and he has already contributed significantly to the Company’s Board, as one of several new directors who have helped to oversee the Company’s successful operating performance over the past year.
Cracker Barrel Chief Executive Officer Sandra B. Cochran said: “The accusations and innuendo in Mr. Biglari’s letter represent a continuation of his contentious rhetoric. We urge shareholders not to be distracted by Mr. Biglari’s proxy fight and instead focus on the Company’s business and strong operating results.”
