On February 12, 2019, Molson Coors and senior management announced the Company's previously issued financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 should be restated and investors should no longer rely on them.

In addition, they announced "management of the Company has determined that a material weakness existed in the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2018 relating to the design and maintenance of effective controls over the completeness and accuracy of the accounting for and disclosure of the income tax effects of acquired partnership interests."

This news drove the price of Molson Coors shares down $6.17, or over 10%, to close at $59.19 on February 12, 2019.

"We're focused on investors' losses, the extent to which Molson Coors' financial statements may have misled investors, and the extent to which senior management's statements concerning the effectiveness of internal controls may have misled investors," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
