Cosmetics giant Revlon Inc. is facing a $850,000 fine from the Securities and Exchange Commission, which alleges the company misled investors as it tried to tackle its debt. Without admitting or denying fault, the New York company agreed to settle federal government charges accusing it of withholding information during a going-private transaction with its controlling shareholder, MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc. M&F, which owns more than three quarters of Revlon's shares and is led by billionaire Ronald Perelman, asked the company in 2009 to allow minority shareholders to swap their common shares for preferred stock.
