New blow to Airbus as the parent company EADS is being investigated for the insider trading. The magnitude of the insider trading, reported by AFP, is massive. French newspaper Le Figaro reports, "a total of 1,200 alleged cases of insider trading on the shares were
detected, but that the regulator decided to move quickly by
concentrating on 21 people, including executives at EADS and Airbus as
well as major shareholders."
The timing was between November 2005 and March 2006.
