Checkers Drive-In Restaurants Will Go Private
"We are pleased the shareholders agreed that this transaction offers the best opportunity to maximize value," said Keith E. Sirois, President and CEO of Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, in a prepared statement. "We look forward to the strategic and financial benefits that private ownership with Wellspring will offer to the Checkers/Rally's system. Following the merger, we will continue to pursue our brand vision of increased restaurant development and 'Guest Obsessed' hospitality."
The merger is expected to close within the next few days. The company will cease to be listed on the Nasdaq or on any other public exchange once the merger is completed.
