Diageo, the world's biggest spirits company and producer of brands including Guinness and Smirnoff Vodka, said Wednesday (February 26) that the spread of coronavirus in greater China and the Asia Pacific could knock up to $260 million off its 2020 profits. The company cited widespread closures of bars and restaurants in China, and a substantial reduction in eating out. It also highlighted a hit to consumption in several other Asian countries, especially South Korea, Japan and Thailand. Trading has been significantly disrupted since the end of January, and Diageo expects this to last at least into March. After that it anticipates a gradual improvement, with consumption returning to normal levels towards the end of the financial year. Shares in Diageo were down almost 2% by early afternoon.

Diageo , the world's biggest spirits company, said on Wednesday the spread of coronavirus in greater China and the Asia Pacific region could knock up to 200 million poundsoff its profit in 2020. The company said that in China, bars and restaurants have largely been closed and there has been a substantial reduction in banqueting. After that Diageo anticipates a gradual improvement with consumption returning to normal levels towards the end of fiscal 2020.
The London-based company - whose brands include Johnnie Walker Scotch whisky, Smirnoff vodka, Tanqueray gin and Guinness beer - did not admit or deny wrongdoing, but agreed to cease and desist from further violations, the SEC said on Wednesday. According to the SEC, Diageo failed to publicly disclose how employees at its most profitable unit, Diageo North America, pushed distributors in its 2014 and 2015 fiscal years to buy more wine and spirits than they needed. The SEC said this "overshipping" enabled Diageo to report higher growth in operating profit and net sales than analysts expected, but was unsustainable because distributors would likely eventually push back on orders, and some did.
