They deserve your "NO VOTE" Reward the Board with it!!!
It is this, Board of Directors that encouraged Redhooks management to pay top dollar for Widmer's shares. The Board knew that most of Widmers sales growth was in Hefeweizen. (PS, AB moved into the lucrative hefeweizen market with Shock Top Ale after the merger). Both AB and the Widmers were over compensated for their shares. After the "merger Widmers sales tanked (due to falling hefeweizen sales and high merger debt), and shortly after so did CBA's share price! It is this, Board of Directors that sold CBA's "Golden Goose" aka Goose Island for pennys and a little contractual wiggle room! It is this, Board of Directors that meets with it's Anheuser Busch designates before deciding any thing! If the AB distribution system and relationship, is such an advantage, why has CBa done so poorly when compared to Sam Adams, New Belgium and Sierra Nevada! This is not my opinion, just look at BREW 's home page click on profile, then look at Corporate Governance Board (HIGH CONCERN !) Audit (Medium Concern ! )
