Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC and Former Louisiana Attorney General Announce Investigation Into Coinstar, Inc. - CSTR01:57 EST Monday, January 17, 2011 NEW ORLEANS (Business Wire) -- Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr. announce the commencement of an investigation into Coinstar, Inc. ("Coinstar" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: CSTR) to determine whether it has violated federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to its shareholders. On January 13, 2010, when Coinstar reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2010, investors first learned that the Company would earn as little as $0.65 per share for the quarter on revenues of only $391 million, and not the analysts consensus estimate of $0.84 per share, on revenues of $427 million. These disclosures had an immediate impact on the price of Coinstar stock, which declined almost 30% in the single trading day - or over almost $15.50 per share, down to $41.50 from the prior days close of almost $57.00 per share.
