David Koehler, vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer commented: "The CHKRZ warrants have been scheduled to expire on September 26th ever since Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc.'s merger with Rally's Hamburgers, Inc. in August of 1999. Despite the tragic events of last week, circumstances have not occurred as to necessitate the Company to modify that time schedule.''
A holder of the CHKRZ warrant may exchange one (1) warrant, plus the sum of $4.52 for one (1) share of Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. common stock (CHKR: NASDAQ). Warrants are to be exercised through American Stock Transfer and Trust (``AST&T''), as exchange agent, at its offices at 6201 15th Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11219.
