Three directors of Jones Soda Co. will not be standing for re-election this year, the US-based soft drinks company has said.

In a securities filing yesterday (22 April), Jones Soda confirmed that Scott Bedbury, John Gallagher Jr. and Alfred Rossow Jr. have said that they will not stand for re-election as a director at the company's 2008 annual meeting of shareholders.

The filing added that the decisions were "not because of a disagreement with the company, nor did it have anything to do with company operations".

Last month, Jones Soda reported that it has reversed its full-year profits, despite a slight lift in sales in 2007. The US-based company, which markets and distributes soft drink brands across North America, said that its net profit for 2006 of US$4.6m became "unanticipated losses" last year, totalling $11.6m.
