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.

Europe's biggest spirits companies could see a profit hit in the coming months from the Coronavirus outbreak, which is crimping tourism, retail and duty-free sales, and creating supply disruptions across China, according to a Moody's report. Remy Martin cognac maker Remy Cointreau and Chivas Regal whisky maker Pernod Ricard may suffer more than rivals because of their high exposure to the Chinese market and especially after celebrations were canceled for the Chinese New Year, one of the busiest periods for alcohol consumption. China is one of the world's largest drinkers of liquor, consuming 26% of global alcoholic beverage volumes, according to the report from credit rating agency Moody's Investor Service.

(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.

There was no Fed change overnight to counter concerns over damage from the spreading new China virus and after a two-day bounce European shares are set to resume their slide from record levels. More Q4 earnings will also be on the radar and Deutsche Bank posting a larger-than-expected annual loss, its fifth in a row as Germany's top bank undergoes a costly overhaul, isn't exactly a good start to the day.

Twelve leading beer, wine and spirits companies have pledged to put clear age-restriction labels on their drinks and set tighter controls on access to their online content in a bid to reduce underage drinking. The International Alliance for Responsible Drinking (IARD), which includes Anheuser-Busch InBev, Diageo and Pernod Ricard, say age-restriction symbols or wording would be in place in all markets by 2024. The labels would also extend to alcohol-free versions of established brands.
