Danish brewing group, Carlsberg A/S, has replaced its chief financial officer after it received a rebuke from the Copenhagen Stock Exchange for giving guidance regarding its financial outlook to certain analysts prior to the publication of its results.

Per Broendum Andersen is to take over as the group's chief financial officer, replacing Jesper Baerenholdt who is to assume other duties within the company.

"It is of the utmost importance to the company that shareholders, investors, financial analysts and other stakeholders have full confidence in that they all have equal access to important information about Carlsberg," the company said.
