 As permitted by Securities and Exchange Commission rules, we are making the proxy statement and our annual report available to stockholders electronically via the Internet on the Company’s website at www.wendysarbys.com. On April 14, 2010, we began mailing to our stockholders a notice containing instructions on how to access this proxy statement and our annual report and how to vote online. If you received that notice, you will not receive a printed copy of the proxy materials unless you request it by following the instructions for requesting such materials contained on the notice.
