Pernod Ricard, the maker of Jameson whiskey and Absolut vodka, cut its annual profit growth outlook for 2019-2020 on Thursday, as it said China’s coronavirus epidemic was likely to have a “severe” impact on its third-quarter performance. The French spirits maker, which generates 10% of its global sales in China, said it couldn't predict the “duration and extent of the impact,” but stressed it remained confident on overall strategy. “In our view Pernod Ricard deserves credit for attempting to quantify the impact, which few other companies we follow have done,” said James Edwardes Jones, analyst at RBC Capital Markets.
Diageo pressured distributors in North America to buy products they didn't need to meet internal sales targets, the Securities and Exchange Commission alleged. The resulting increase in shipments in 2014 and 2015 enabled Diageo to meet performance targets and to report higher growth in key performance indicators that were closely followed by investors and analysts, the SEC said. Diageo agreed to pay a $5 million penalty without admitting or denying the violations.
Diageo has been fined $5m by the US securities regulator after “materially misleading” investors about demand for its drinks by concealing sales of unwanted stock to distributors. It said the maker of Johnnie Walker whisky, Smirnoff vodka and Tanqueray gin had pushed distributors — who act as middlemen in America’s “three-tier” system of alcohol sales — to accept excess inventory to help it meet sales targets. Diageo then failed to disclose the overstocks in its most profitable unit to investors, making its market filings “materially misleading to investors with respect to its financial results”, according to the SEC.

(Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Diageo Plc, the world’s largest distiller, lowered its outlook for sales growth amid weakness in key markets including India as the industry faces risks from trade battles and the spread of the coronavirus.Sales growth will probably be near the lower end of the 4% to 6% targeted range in the year through June, Diageo said Thursday. Previously Diageo guided to the midpoint. Sales rose 4.2% on an adjusted basis in the six months through December, matching analysts’ estimates.Chief Executive Officer Ivan Menezes said in a statement that the distiller was facing increased levels of volatility and uncertainty in the global trade environment “and we would not be immune from further policy changes.” Diageo warned investors in September that trade tensions could undermine a positive start to the financial year.Sales from the travel retail division declined 18%, hindered by rising tensions and challenging trading conditions in the Mideast region and lower passenger traffic in cities including Hong Kong, which has been impacted by social unrest. Growth slowed in India as the economy weakened there. Economic and political unrest in countries such as Mexico, Peru and Chile affected Diageo’s business in Latin America.Diageo finds it hard to predict when economic conditions might improve in markets such as India, Chief Financial Officer Kathryn Mikells said on a call with journalists.She said it’s too soon to see what impact the coronavirus will have on business in China, where Diageo owns the Shui Jing Fang baijiu brand and has opened retail outlets for its Johnnie Walker Scotch whisky. Sales grew 24% in the market last year.Diageo has suspended travel to China, and ensuring the safety of staff in that country is the main priority, she said, adding that the mainland accounts for about 4% of total revenue.The shares rose 1.1% as of 8:36 a.m. in London. They have dropped about 9% in the past six months.Diageo benefits from geographic and portfolio diversity, Mikells said. The U.K. division held up fairly well despite concerns Brexit would weigh on consumption. The North American business --which accounts for a third of sales -- delivered revenue growth of 6%, helped by growth of spirits.(Updates with comments from CFO starting in fifth paragraph)To contact the reporters on this story: Thomas Buckley in London at firstname.lastname@example.org;Deirdre Hipwell in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Eric Pfanner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Thomas Mulier, Anne PollakFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
