Micros Systems: Subsidiary fraud caused overstatements

February 05, 2010

Columbia-based Micros Systems Inc. said Thursday that it overstated revenue by $6.9 million and pretax income by $4.4 million over the past five years because of fraud by a Japanese subsidiary. The company, which supplies information systems to the hospitality and retail industry, said the overstatements weren't enough to adjust previous earnings statements. Micros also said that fiscal second quarter earnings for the period ended Dec. 31 were flat at $26.1 million, or 32 cents per share. Revenue for the quarter was $225.6 million, according to the company.
