SEC Investigation of Wholesaler Inventory & Accounting Matters
In August 2004, the Company entered into a final settlement with the SEC, concluding an investigation concerning certain wholesaler inventory and accounting matters. The Company agreed, without admitting or denying any liability, not to violate certain provisions of the securities laws. The Company also established a $150 million fund, which is being distributed to certain Company shareholders under a plan of distribution established by the SEC. The settlement does not resolve the ongoing investigation by the SEC of the activities of certain former members of the Companys management in connection with the wholesaler inventory issues and other accounting matters. The Company is continuing to cooperate with this investigation.
