A quick test seems to confirm my suspicions; this may be a
color management issue. The original PDF was probably made
using a specific color profile (Apple RGB is not far from
being correct) and either you don't have CM active or you
have imported the PDF as standard Adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB.

To change ICC-profile, there's a drop-down box for input
profiles under the 'Image'-tab in the 'Properties' palette.

There are others on this list which have more expertise in
CM than I do.

Best regards
