Let me get this straight. Shareholders of AHO have won a settlement over accounting issues that will require AHO to pay those shareholders about 1.1 billion. I agree that AHO executives should be held responsible for any and all irregularities both abroad and here with US Foodservice. What sense does it make for shareholders to ask an already debt laden company (about $6 billion)in the midst of a turnaround attempt to pay them another billion? Shareholder value would be better served without this short term monetary gain.
