I now give you the principal message of my letter: I am convinced that there is a great deal of upside in Cracker Barrel's stock. To unlock its inherent value, I am asking you to join in on our value-maximization mission. Creative disruption needs to occur in the boardroom of Cracker Barrel — with the consequence of disrupting negative long-term trends in traffic and amplifying operating performance. We will continue to do the heavy lifting, but in order to be successful, we require owner-oriented shareholders who will back our efforts at the next meeting of stockholders. Let's underscore the basic idea: We want shareholders who share our owner mentality to support us; only then can we be positioned to implement triumphant, value-maximizing ideas. I pledge in return that Biglari Holdings will not sell a single share of Cracker Barrel stock. If we should decide to do so — again, we have no such plans — we would first issue a press release to notify all shareholders quite far in advance (i.e., minimum of two weeks). In other words, we will not take advantage of you.
