Item 8.01 Other Events
On August 14, 2009, Good Times Restaurants Inc. and its wholly subsidiary Good Times Drive Thru Inc. (the "Company") entered into a strategic advisory services agreement (the "Agreement") with Mastodon Ventures, Inc. ("Mastodon"), pursuant to which Mastodon will provide the Company with exclusive advisory services related to the possible restructuring of certain lease and debt agreements of the Company and the identification of possible additional sources of capital for the Company (the "Restructuring Plan"). The services include but are not limited to assistance with the preparation of information, structuring of a plan, negotiations with potential investors, preparation of any documents required to be filed with federal and state agencies relating to a Restructuring Plan and analyzing other strategic alternatives that will further the long-term business prospects of the Company and provide incremental value to its shareholders.
While the Agreement provides that Mastodon is being engaged by the Company as an advisor to the Company to explore strategic options, Mastodon understands that the Board of Directors of the Company has appointed a Special Committee to consider certain of such options on behalf of the shareholders of the Company. Mastodon agrees that its services shall include communicating with such Special Committee as it may reasonably request and, if directed by such committee, Mastodon shall hold
such communications in confidence.
The foregoing summary of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
On August 14, 2009 the company issued a press release announcing the formation of a Special Committee of its board of directors to explore and evaluate strategic alternatives aimed at enhancing shareholder value and explore alternatives to reduce the cost burdens of being a publicly held entity and the entry into a strategic advisory services agreement with Mastodon Ventures, Inc. A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
