SPOTLIGHT

WOODY WOODROFF ‘69

Albert "Woody" Woodroof, III, '69 NC Xi, Spectrum's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Office,
joined Spectrum in 1969 and began to guide it toward the solid growth it has experienced over the last
                               35 years. Spectrum's commitment to building loyalty and brand value
                               has made it the destination of choice and dominant operator in
                               Columbus and Macon, Georgia, with additional facilities in the high
                               growth cities of Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile, Alabama.

                                 In June of 2006, Spectrum Holding Inc. sold its 90 stores to Alimentation
                                 Couche-Tard (through its U.S. subsidiary Circle K) in an asset sale. This
                                 marked the departure from the industry of Albert "Woody" Woodroof
                                 III, president and CEO of Spectrum and the 1995 NACS chairman. His
                                 experience provides an interesting case study on the transaction process
from the seller's perspective.
