Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Launches An Investigation Against The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. (GBX) For Potential Breaches Of Fiduciary Duties By Its Board Of Directors

NEW YORK--()--Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. (“Greenbrier” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GBX) for potential breaches of 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.

Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 16, 2012, the Board of Directors 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. The issuance of the additional shares could have a severe dilutive effect on the shares of Greenbrier’s common stock.
