Apparently tired of leadership that has steered a once-mighty company into chaos, bankruptcy and interminable reorganization delays, a group of shareholders has finally had enough. More than 300 individual Blockbuster shareholders, claiming to represent nearly 70 million shares of class A and B company stock, have filed a motion to hold a meeting in which BB’s current board of directors will be replaced.

From the “no confidence” motion:

“Prior to bankruptcy, Blockbuster had turned down the request for a shareholder meeting for re-voting on the “class conversion & reverse [stock] split” measures required to maintain the NYSE listing . . . Shareholders believe that the board had demonstrated incompetency in managing the company and estate.”

You’d likely find few people who would disagree that Blockbuster’s board has “demonstrated incompetency” during the last few years. Will cleaning house at the top be the drastic measure this fallen giant needs to start on the road to recovery?

    It can’t hurt, now can it…… There’s nowhere to go but up.

    Not a bad idea, and it should have happened before (including the reverse-split), but it won’t help them. There’s just too many customers that remember how horrible it was to rent from them (late fees etc). It’s just a matter of time till they’re history.

    Went there long ago, did not like it. Confusing. Forever to get waited on and the way they had the movies placed, well just everything was confusing and not customer friendly. I now of course go to redbox and when I get too old, I’ll take Netflex.
