JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Bankrupt retailer Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. said yesterday it's postponing its annual meeting of shareholders at the request of the equity committee in its Chapter 11 proceedings. The committee wants time for an independent review of the events and circumstances that led up to the filing of the Winn-Dixie Chapter 11 cases, as well as "other related matters," according to the retailer.
The annual meeting had been scheduled for Dec. 8 in the groceer's headquarters of Jacksonville, Fla. A new date for the annual meeting has not yet been determined.
The equity committee was appointed earlier this year by the U.S. Trustee to represent the interests of Winn-Dixie's shareholders in the company's Chapter 11 proceedings.
