Siemens Settles Corruption And Tax Cases With German Prosecutors

Siemens AG said it will pay a €201 million fine in connection with global corruption allegations that will end the investigation by the Munich Office of Public Prosecution. In an October 4, 2007 press release, Siemens said it will also take a charge for taxes of €179 million for questionable payments of approximately €420 million that were improperly deducted.

The engineering and electronics giant based in Germany said its internal investigation into global corrupt practices is ongoing. It said it has already taken remedial measures to avoid sensitive payments and strengthen internal controls. On October 1, 2007, it announced the reorganization of corporate-wide legal and compliance responsibilities.

Siemens can now concentrate on reaching a resolution with U.S. prosecutors of potential U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations.
