Best Buy Co., Inc. (NYSE:BBY) and founder Richard Schulze announced that they have agreed to amend the terms of their August 26 agreement that allowed Schulze access to certain due diligence information and permission to form an investment group in furtherance of making a fully financed proposal with respect to a qualified offer.
