The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) Central European was experiencing double digit declines in its vodka portfolio; (2) the Company was rapidly losing market share in Poland to discounters; (3) the Company’s market decline required impairment charges, which Central European did not timely record; and (4) advertising costs for Central European’s new vodka product were negatively impacting the Company’s profit margins.
On March 1, 2011, the Company shocked the market when it issued disappointing fiscal year 2010 results, including a net loss of $92.9 million or $1.32 per fully diluted share. This is compared to a net profit of $72.7 million, or $1.35 per fully diluted share, for the same period in 2009.
