PRLog - Dec. 19, 2012 - SAN DIEGO -- An investigation on behalf of current long term stockholders in shares of The Greenbrier Companies (NYSE:GBX) was announced concerning potential breaches of fiduciary duties by certain directors of The Greenbrier Companies in connection with the Company’s 2010 Amended and Restated Stock Incentive Plan.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain directors potentially breached their fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders’ approval of an amendment to the Company’s 2010 Amended and Restated Stock Incentive Plan.
In the Proxy Statement filed by Greenbrier Companies with the Securities and Exchange Commission in November  2012, the Board of Directors of Greenbrier Companies recommends that Greenbrier’s shareholders vote to approve amendments to Greenbrier’s 2010 Amended and Restated Stock Incentive Plan to (a) increase the total number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock available for issuance under the Plan by 1,500,000 shares, from 2,825,000 to 4,325,000 and (b) increase the dollar value of the annual automatic non-employee director restricted stock grants from $60,000 to $80,000.
According to the investigation the issuance of the additional shares could have a severe dilutive effect on the shares of Greenbrier’s common stock.
