About the Lawsuit

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the Company's failure to disclose during the Class Period that: (i) the Company engaged in the illegal practice of paying bribes to foreign officials in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA"); (ii) the Company's sales and revenue in China and other emerging markets were dependent on its illegal bribery practices and were, therefore, not sustainable; and (iii) that the Company's internal controls were severely deficient. As the truth about these illegal payments emerged, the price of Avon stock declined significantly and investors suffered material damages and losses.
