PARIS — Carrefour SA posted fourth-quarter sales in line with market expectations, but said 2010 operating profits fell slightly short of its most recent guidance after the company booked one-off charges in Brazil and five other countries resulting from recent audits.
Carrefour, the world’s second-largest retailer behind Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said it had implemented new operating rules with strengthened internal controls as a result of the irregularities, which prompted it to issue a profit warning late last year that rattled investors and weighed on its share price.
