Stocks in this article: PTRY

The Pantry, Inc. (NASDAQ:PTRY), a leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern U.S., today announced that, based on a preliminary vote count provided by its proxy solicitor following the Annual Meeting of Stockholders, stockholders have voted to elect Thomas W. Dickson, Todd E. Diener, Wifred A. Finnegan, Kathleen R. Guion, Dennis G. Hatchell, Terry L. McElroy, Mark D. Miles, James C. Pappas and Joshua E. Schechter to the Company’s Board of Directors.

The Pantry issued the following statement:

“We appreciate the consideration and support of our stockholders, as well as the insights they shared with our Board and management team throughout this election process. While a number of different ideas and perspectives were expressed during this process, at the end of the day all interested parties share the common goal of creating value for The Pantry’s stockholders. The incumbent Board and management team welcome the new directors and intend to work cooperatively with them to successfully execute the Company’s strategic plan and deliver superior returns for The Pantry’s stockholders.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Robert F. Bernstock, Edwin J. Holman and Thomas M. Murnane for their service on The Pantry’s Board and their many contributions to the Company.”

IVS Associates, Inc., the independent Inspector of Elections, has indicated that it expects to issue a preliminary tabulation of the vote results within four (4) business days. Final results of the election will be announced once they are certified by the Inspector, following the customary review and challenge period.

In addition to preliminary election results, The Pantry also announced that (i) the Company’s named executive officer compensation was approved on an advisory (nonbinding) basis, (ii) the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending September 25, 2014 was ratified and (iii) the stockholder proposal requesting a human rights report was not approved on an advisory (nonbinding) basis.
