It alleged that the world’s largest standalone winemaker used acquisition accounting to write down inventories, and raised concerns about the difference between operating cash flow and profit.
Treasury Wines said in a statement to the Australian Securities Exchange the report was “false and misleading”, and that it would respond specifically to the claims when it announced its preliminary annual results on Aug. 15.
