Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 22, 2008, the Company issued a press release announcing (i) the results of the Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on Friday January 18, 2008, at which the following nine directors were elected to serve on the Board: : John R. Alexander, JD Alexander, Robert E. Lee Caswell, Evelyn D’An, Phillip S. Dingle, Gregory T. Mutz, Charles L. Palmer, Robert J. Viguet, and Gordon Walker, (ii) the Board’s appointment of the directors to the various Board Committees and the election of officers, and (iii) the declaration of a quarterly dividend of $0.275 per share payable to shareholders of record as of April 30, 2008, with payment expected on or about May 16, 2008. The Company is filing a copy of the press release as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

In addition, at the January 18, 2008 meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board voted to extend the period for director compliance with the Director Stock Purchase Policy by another 12 months, noting the decline in the Company’s stock price as the principal reason for such extension. The Director Stock Purchase Policy requires that all Directors who are not beneficial owners of Atlantic Blue Group, Inc. own, at all times after three-years from their election to the Board, Company stock with a market value which is equal to or greater than $200,000 dollars (the “Company Director Target Stock Ownership Requirement”). The extension allows them another year to reach the Company Director Target Stock Ownership Requirement.
