Welcome to the CEDC Securities Settlements Website

This website has been established to provide general information regarding the proposed Settlements of two matters: (1) the action entitled In re Central European Distribution Corporation Securities Litigation, No. 1:11-cv-06247-JBS-KMW; and (2) the consolidated action entitled Grodko v. Central European Distribution Corporation, et al., No. 1:12-cv-05530-JBS-KMW; Puerto Rico System of Annuities and Pensions for Teachers v. Central European Distribution Corporation, et al., No. 1:12-cv-05531-JBS-KMW, both of which are pending in the United States District Court for District of New Jersey (the "Actions"). Your rights may be affected by one or both of these Settlements if you purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of Central European Distribution Corp. ("CEDC" or the "Company") between March 1, 2010 and November 13, 2012, inclusive.

 

How to Participate

In order to participate in either Settlement you must submit a "joint" Proof of Claim form which will be used to calculate your recovery, if any, in both class actions. Submission of the Proof of Claim, however, does not assure that you will share in the proceeds of the settlement of either of these Actions.  In addition, your joint Proof of Claim form may show that you are an eligible Class Member in only one of the two Actions and as such would entitle you to participate in only one of the two Settlements.
