Pride International ( PDE) shares fell 2% after the drilling company delayed filing its 2005 annual report because it is investigating allegations of improper payments to foreign government officials. The possible improper payments, which go back a number of years, relate to its overseas operations, the company said. Pride also is looking at accounting entries and internal control issues. "At this time, the company does not know whether the allegations will be substantiated, and if so, who may be implicated or what impact the allegations or the investigation may have on the company, the company's business or the company's financial statements," the company said. As a result of the investigation, which is being "pursued aggressively," Pride said it may not be able to file its 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission by March 31, which is the expiration of the 15-day extension the company plans to file. The company, which had planned to release fourth-quarter earnings on Tuesday, will now post its results on Thursday. Shares were down 66 cents to $29.98.
