Outback Steakhouse postponed for one week the shareholder vote on its LBO because it does not yet have the necessary shareholder approval for the deal. Shareholders expressed unhappiness with the $40 stock price. In an unusual move, the company also cancelled a $550 million bond financing sold two weeks ago to finance the LBO.
