    Papa John's shares fall as board adopts 'poison pill'

    The implementation of the stockholder rights plan, which aims to stop investors from amassing more than a 15 percent stake in the company, follows Schnatter's resignation as chairman in a row over his use of a racial slur in an internal conference call. Shares of the pizza chain fell as much as 6 percent on the reports of Schnatter's comments and his subsequent resignation. One highly-rated Wall Street analyst on Papa John's, Stifel's Chris O'Cull, cut his rating on the stock to "sell", from "hold", saying that the company was in a precarious position — "needing a strategic savior but struggling to find one willing to underwrite a transaction given the brand damage." "The rights plan is intended ... to protect the interests of the company and its stockholders by reducing the likelihood that any person or group gains control of Papa John's through open market accumulation or other tactics without paying an appropriate control premium," the company said on Sunday.
