The Corporate Investigations List (July 2014)

The companies listed below are the subject of an ongoing and unresolved FCPA-related investigation. The names are current through June 30, 2014.

The entries are based on disclosures in SEC filings or credible news reports or both.

Some companies on the list have disclosed DOJ and SEC investigations, and declinations from only one of those agencies. We’re assuming the agency for which a declination hasn’t been disclosed is continuing its investigation.

The DOJ and SEC don’t disclose the existence of FCPA investigations or comment on them. That means non-issuers (non-public companies) and issuers that have a pending investigation but haven’t disclosed it, may not appear on our list.

This data is made available once again through the generous contribution of an anonymous volunteer researcher.

In addition to the companies on the list, the researcher identified at least 20 others suspected to be the target of an ongoing FCPA investigation. The researcher (and others) aren’t able to confirm those investigations using reliable sources, so the companies have been omitted.
