"Management's assumptions regarding the full year 2009 average exchange rates used in preparing this guidance have decreased from 3.20-3.30 PLN/USD to 3.10-3.20 PLN/USD and from 32.00-33.00 RUR/USD to 31.50-32.50 RUR/USD"
PLN to the USD has moved from 3.25 ( early june 2009 ) to now a exchange of 2.78 today
Russian Ruble is 28.98 rubles to the dollar
Anyway, Q4 results, sometime in February if history in any indication, should be a nice surprise if the dollar continues to stay weak or weaken even more.
They use an average of each daily rate, not the current rate. Example, today appears to be very weak dollar, and Zloty doing nicely, and share value should trend up as a result. However, management uses every day forex info, which makes sense when you realize that booze is sold every day, and the CPAs are supposed to reflect that. Management has not done a good job of explaining that, you raised a good question.
