The investigation focuses on statements made between October 9, 2012 and January 7, 2013 regarding the Company's business, its prospects and operations. Specifically, the investigation relates to whether statements made by the Company in regards to profitability of its operations in China complied with applicable laws. On November 23, 2012, it was reported by the Chinese media that certain chicken suppliers of the Company fed toxic chemicals to chickens that were sold to KFC China. As a result, on January 15, 2013, YUM! disclosed that it was lowering sales forecasts for its Chinese Division due to the "adverse publicity associated with a government review to China poultry supply." YUM!'s stock price declined heavily following these forecasts.If you own YUM! stock and wish to obtain additional information about the investigation and your legal rights, please contact Joseph E.
