MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fred’s, Inc.(“Fred’s” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:FRED) today announced that the Company has reached an agreement to extend the cooperation agreement Fred’s had previously entered into with Alden Global Capital LLC (“Alden”) through September 1, 2019.   The cooperation agreement contains certain customary standstill and other provisions and prior to the amendment, would have allowed either party to terminate the agreement after March 1, 2019.  The amendment extends that date by six months.  The complete agreement between Fred’s and Alden previously was included as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the amendment announced today also will be filed as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K.
