Central European Distribution to Restate Q2, Six-Month Results
Central European Distribution Corporation (NASDAQ: CEDC) announced today that it expects to restate its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. CEDC will restate these financial statements to correct an excess provision previously recorded to account for promotional compensation granted to one customer in a division of its main operating subsidiary in Russia, the Russian Alcohol Group ("RAG"). The excess provision resulted in an inadvertent understatement of the Company's accounts receivable.
CEDC estimates that the aggregate effect of the adjustments identified to date will result in an increase in accounts receivable as at June 30, 2012, and a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, of approximately $6 million, resulting in an increase in net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, of approximately $6 million, which amounts are subject to change as CEDC continues its review of the accounting matters discussed herein. These amounts reflect the fact that certain accounts receivable related to promotional compensation granted to customers of RAG that had been provisioned as doubtful accounts were ultimately recovered in the period and therefore the associated provisions are to be reversed. The adjustments are not expected to have any impact on previously reported net cash provided by operating activities reported in the cash flow statements during the period.
