Stryker's Latest Disclosure

Here's Michigan-based Stryker Corporation's full FCPA disclosure from its Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on July 24. The company makes medical devices used for implants and reconstructive procedures.

In 2007 we disclosed that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) made an inquiry of us regarding possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in connection with the sale of medical devices in certain foreign countries. Subsequently, in 2008, we received a subpoena from the United States Department of Justice, Criminal Division, requesting certain documents for the period since January 1, 2000 in connection with the SEC inquiry. We are fully cooperating with the U.S. Department of Justice and the SEC regarding these matters.
