Alleged insider dealing
News reports in June 2006 focused on possible insider dealing at EADS. Forgeard made a 2.5 million Euro profit on the sale of EADS shares, with his children earning 4.2 million Euro, just weeks before news of Airbus A380 delays was released. Forgeard denied any wrongdoing, claiming that he was a scapegoat in the matter.
