Barclays FCPA disclosure

Here’s the full FCPA disclosure by Barclays PLC from its Interim Management Statement filed with the London Stock Exchange on October 31:

Subsequent to reporting the investigations of the Financial Services Authority and Serious Fraud Office in July and August 2012 respectively, Barclays has been informed by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that they are undertaking an investigation into whether the Group’s relationships with third parties who assist Barclays to win or retain business are compliant with the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Barclays is investigating and fully co-operating with the DOJ and SEC.

In August, the U.K. Serious Fraud Office announced an investigation into Barclays.

The SFO said:

On 15 August 2012 the Director of the SFO formally opened an investigation into certain commercial arrangements between Barclays Bank and Qatar Holdings in 2008.

The SFO’s August 30 announcement is here.

Barclays October 31 filing with the London Stock Exchange is here.
