Casey’s General Stores, Inc. (“Casey’s”) (NASDAQ: CASY) today announced that following discussions with 7-Eleven, Inc. (“7-Eleven”) regarding a potential transaction, Casey’s received a revised proposal from 7-Eleven of $43.00 per common share in cash. The Casey’s Board of Directors, in consultation with its financial and other advisors, carefully considered the revised proposal and unanimously determined that the revised proposal does not reflect the value of Casey’s and its significant growth opportunities, and is not in the best interests of Casey’s, its shareholders, and other constituencies. Given that Casey’s and 7-Eleven have been unable to reach mutually agreeable terms, the companies are no longer in discussions.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. is acting as financial advisor to Casey’s, and Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP and Ahlers & Cooney, PC are providing legal advice.
