Biglari Holdings to pay feds $850,000 fine

U.S. Department of Justice officials announced Tuesday that Biglari Holdings Inc. will pay an $850,000 civil penalty to settle charges that it violated premerger reporting and waiting requirements when it acquired significant stock in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc.

Biglari Holdings Chief Executive Officer Sardar Biglari, recently refused an offer from the Cracker Barrel Board of Directors to appoint two independent members to the board. Biglari owns a 17.5 percent stake in Cracker Barrel and has been waging a proxy battle for two seats on the board.

The Justice Departments Antitrust Division, at the request of the Federal Trade Commission, filed a civil antitrust lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., against Biglari Holdings for violating the notification requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act of 1976.
