Item 8.01. Other Events.
On or about April 12, 2011, Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (the Company) furnished or otherwise made available to stockholders its Proxy Statement describing the matters to be voted upon at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the Annual Meeting) to be held on May 24, 2011. At the Annual Meeting, stockholders are being asked, among other things, to elect seven directors to serve on the Companys Board of Directors for the coming year, each to hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders (and until each such directors successor shall have been duly elected and qualified).
Following the Companys review of the recently published analysis of the Companys Proxy Statement by ISS Proxy Advisory Services and to facilitate the election of Anthony M. Sanfilippo as a director of the Company, the Company is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to clarify that during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, Anthony M. Sanfilippo attended all meetings (100%) of the Board of Directors and committees on which he served following his appointment on March 14, 2010, as the Companys President, Chief Executive Officer and director. Because Mr. Sanfilippo was not a director of the Company from January 1, 2010 to March 13, 2010, he could not have attended seventy-five percent (75%) of the aggregate of all meetings of the Board of Directors and committees on which he served that were held during the entire fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
