Investor Relations


The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated strives to establish policies and procedures that adhere to strong corporate governance standards. Both the Board of Directors and management are committed to ethical business practices and believe that good corporate governance is important to ensure that the Company is managed for the long-term benefit of its shareholders. We operate with the highest standards of principle and integrity, and are committed to excellence in all that we do.

On May 29, 2019, the Board of Directors approved the amendment and restatement of the Amended and Restated Code of Ethics for Executive Officers, Senior Financial Officers, and Directors (the “Code of Ethics”). The changes include language regarding promotion of a culture of honesty and integrity, the engagement by an immediate family member of an officer or director as a transaction required to be disclosed under Item 404 of Regulation S-K, a section regarding officer and director obligations with respect to disclosures and controls, and the process for submissions regarding violations of the Code of Ethics. The foregoing summary of the amendments to the Code of Ethics is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Code of Ethics, as so amended and restated, a copy of which is posted below.

This section is intended to provide you with an overview of our corporate governance policies and procedures. In addition to the information on this website, we refer you to our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Proxy Statement filed on Form DEF 14A on April 16, 2020 for our Annual Meeting of Stockholders, to be held on May 28, 2020.
